Found off the coast in South America by Professor Quartermain, half dead and emaciated while gulls pecked at him. Proffesor Quartermain saved his life and took him in, creating a special lab and home in order to house little Levi. Professor Quartermain gave him an excellent education and life, but because of his appearance he felt it best to keep him hidden. Once Professor Quartermain became ill his granddaughter, Adele, was sent to take care of Levi. The two bonded instantly and soon fell in love. Levi earned a degree in marine biology online and plays the violin although as he’s gotten older he’s ignored it.

“The Nature of Planeswalkers” = A study on the swimmers. A study on the drivers of the vehicles.
This article is about the final and third part of this study. In here, I will talk about who the planeswalkers are and what makes them special.
As always, this Treatise is founded upon the collection of knowledge from years of studying the source material and through a look at the story telling itself. I ask myself, if I were telling this story, how would I do it? What explanation could I propose that would withstand all the exceptions and possible criticisms? This article takes my findings and presents them.
Wishiwashi have long symbolized organized labor in Alola, for while any individual Wishiwashi is only marginally stronger than a Magikarp, they can unite into a mighty leviathan. Pamphlets from Alola’s early industrial age exhorted workers to unite by picturing lone Wishiwashi chained or beaten by Grumpig, and their mighty school form chasing those same Grumpig away. In this period of Alola’s history, simply owning a Wishiwashi was strongly suggestive of union sympathies, complete with scattered reports of bosses blacklisting workers on the basis of their pokemon teams.
Yet humans can interpret their pokemon in a variety of ways, and a certain dictator ruling a coastal country far from Alola also prized the Wishiwashi, even while shooting striking workers; to him and his sycophants, it represented national unity, not class struggle. And to be fair, the notion of many pokemon banding together into a powerful school can approximate any union, not simply a labor union; scattered universities around the world have chosen Wishiwashi as their mascots for this very reason, and argue that, as Wishiwashi join into schools, they have the strongest claim of all on these pokemon.
Yet pokemon rarely neatly map onto human symbolism, and the oft-praised unity of Wishiwashi does not last for a whole battle; when wounded, a Wishiwashi’s comrades will scatter, leaving it to face defeat alone. While an embittered few have compared this trait to the actions of scabs or traitors, later generations of revolutionary guerillas have found inspiration in this behavior. For while one Wishiwashi may be defeated, or even (in the wild) eaten when they scatter, the rest survive to re-school and take revenge on their predators, whenever they get their chance. Although they are amazingly strong when united, Wishiwashi, like successful revolutionaries, grasp the importance of surviving to fight another day.
Some of the people who left the human communities remembered some of the qualities. They remembered some of the joys of possession — not possession of things but possession of Being.
They remembered — but vaguely, foggily. Surrounded by things, they lost the ability to express the qualities. They knew the age they had left was more valuable, more pure, more beautiful than anything they found since. But their language had gone poor. They could speak of what they lost only by comparing it to things of their world. They called the forgotten age the Age of Gold.
Fredy Perlman, Against His-Story, Against Leviathan
At bottom, “society” only denotes the projected shadow of the successive modes of government. It was the whole set of subjects of the absolutist state in the age of the Leviathan, then that of economic actors in the liberal state. From the viewpoint of the welfare state, it was man himself, with his rights, needs, and labour power, who constituted the base element of society. What is perverse about the idea of “society” is that it has always helped government to naturalise the product of its activity, its operations, its techniques. It was constructed as what essentially preexisted it. It was only after the Second World War, really, that one dared speak explicitly about “social engineering”. Since then, society has officially become what one constructs, sort of like doing nation-building by attacking Iraq.
Here is the full set of the homeworlds series, now including Rannoch, Dekuuna and poor tiny little Suen. Kind of amusing/sad that the rachni homeworld could easily be a moon to Dekuuna!
(The criterion for inclusion on these sets was “species that are not technically extinct in 2183-6”. I’ve left aside the Leviathans as, given the age of their civilisation, it’s quite possible that their original homeworld no longer exists.)
EDIT: there is an updated, fully-combined version of this graphic here:
Nestled deep in the Sea of Cortez is a tiny island you won’t find on any map. Six fishermen scour the Baja peninsula to find this magical place, but when they finally reach their destination, they encounter some sea life that they did not expect. The discovery puts the troop at odds and it quickly becomes every man for himself. Which will prevail, Mother Nature or Human Nature?
Shallow Water is a “gritty, moody, and terrifying” horror film about the dangers of abusing our environment. Harking back to the creature feature of yore, it aims to create the defining monster of a whole new generation — one that plays just as much to the audience “ick!” factor as it does to timely existential anxieties. Steering the ship is legendary FX master Sandy Collora, who has been handcrafting creatures since the age of 17, when he first stepped onto the set of Leviathan. With Shallow Water, though, he hopes to recapture some of the lost monster-ly magic of classic cinema:
“I grew up on the original Alien and Predator films. I love them. But where are the NEW iconic creatures and characters? How long has it been since we’ve seen something truly unique and powerful in a genre film? Too long. If Hollywood won’t do it, I will.”
