Hi! You might be asking what this all means.
At first, it might be really confusing - you might even get lost, or start to feel like you're inside a maze. You'll learn more as you explore, but here are a few terms to help you get started.
Strangers: a natural phenomenon that take on composite, and often anthropomorphic behaviours. Although they exhibit complexity and exert both physical and mental influence upon their environment, strangers do not possess a thoughtform, and are not alive. They are invisible to most standard people, dwelling within the sociospace. Generated as a byproduct of human activity, strangers can be found in any city.

Thoughtform: the part of the living being that perceives, senses, and decides. It is equivalent to what is typically known as "consciousness" or "free will".
an average human being.
a person who can perceive the sociospace, and engage with the phenomenal shapes known as strangers.

Sociospace: a space created by friction between our reality and other dimensions, in which the strangers generate, propagate, and flourish. Though it is entangled with physical reality, this connection ebbs and flows. If left undisturbed by standard human activity, the fields settle in a tangible form, allowing the strangers to interact with the concrete world. The shifts of connection and disconnection can never be observed by a standard human, as a stranger will always shift out of reality before being perceived.
Wow, this all sounds pretty weird – and you say it's only going to get weirder? Wait a second, just what is this website?
Goodbye Strangers is a work of experimental fiction! The story is told in a non-linear structure – it's sort of like an image that starts off blurry, but becomes more clear as you explore! The main narrative takes place in a loose sequence of events called Space Madness – but that's not the only level of the story!
Here are some of the fictional characters that might show up along the way... (the best part is, they don't know they're fictional characters!)
Wow, we can find out things about them that
even they don't know! So it's almost like
you can see inside their mind, right?
Yeah, you bet...! It's the best... You should see what a mess some of them are!
hey, speaking of... do you like stories? do you like comics?
are strangers the only entities that occupy this dimension?
