Back in high school, an astrogation professor told the class that Hyperspace was completely empty. No stars, no interstellar gases, no stray quarks or photons. To Keiran's eyes though, Hyperspace looked a deep, charcoal grey, textured, and veined like a leaf. He asked the professor, "If it's completely empty, and there's no light, why isn't it black?"
The professor coughed and mumbled out his answer. "But it is black. The human mind abhors a vacuum. We can't process real emptiness, if we tried, we'd go insane. The brain gives itself something to see."
Keiran thought that answer was bunk. But with his grades already buckling under a botched exam, Keiran decided against arguing with his teacher. He set the black versus grey issue aside.
This was Hyperspace after all. Beyond the porthole lay the true void. Nothing out there to assign a correct color to.
P.S.: This generator sounds great on slower tape speed, and haunting with the speed shuffled.
