Purpose / Function
Viennese Waltz is a government-run initiative between the tangible and intangible sides of the council that cleanly cuts through the two worlds in Bhulok. It was formed from bringing two parts close together and inhabiting the space between. One half contains the billions of streams of sapient code, and the other, thousands of flesh and metal people. It often acts as the preferred neutral ground for:
- Quick interfacing between desperate groups on work related matters
- Gain a reliable break from long haul assignments without being far from the ship
- Opportunity to restock, rearm and reassess, if needs be, from depots of thousands cargo containers tied together in caches.
This space acts as the connective tissue in a joint to either ends of Bhulok Station. The facilities that make up Waltz contour into a roughly cylindrical area of around 10,000 square kilometers and can accommodate about 1000 patrons at a time. It is mostly empty space, for ships to maneuver and dock onto clamps and cranes that line the inner rim. Split down the middle, the bendsadri side contains wall-to-wall crystalline server matrices for processing the whims and wishes of those inhabiting it. While the other lays out a traditional orbital floorplan for walking about and limited amenities.
Login AdmittanceBaring entering while wearing a talo, epsilonians and thetíans can only access the Bend's services by establishing a VW account.
Bilateral Situated ValleysThere two parallel slits for small ships to enter and dock inside the venue. It remains open so long as the parts of Bhulok continue to evenly rotate about the axial bar.
Sensory & Appearance
Recreated TwilightThe inner rim is cast in a perpetual semi darkness. A green shadowy glow from the plasmic generators permeate through the central axial during the transference of energy towards the various subsystems in Bhulok as a whole. Contrastly, shades of blue refract from the inner rim while twinkling whites from the underside mimic the old home's nightly skies or sparkling oceans. Shadows from passing patron ships add a further unintended effect of dragonesque shapes seeming to prowl the screen. Additionally, public speakers are attuned to the counting station to drown the vacant quite with a free rhythmic sound that no one understands and become noise blind to.
There is a minority of elite thetíans who forge business contracts with their Delphi counterparts.
Below us or above us, the bendsadri is the dumping ground of Bhulok. A digital place where diminished people have been reduced to a collection of nerve endings and kept busy by infinitely masturbating. Can we really still consider them people.
By far they make up the largest human group to traverse Manidweepa, though they do not always appear human. They have a greater perpetuity to grow their bodies to resemble that of traditional livestock or mythological creatures.

Hazards & Traps
It is not unexpected for crews to vanish while on their runs in Manidweepa. Those might fall through a random portal or be taken by raiding meridians; but I'm talking bout that one dope drinking at the bar you never see again. And no one notice this before, but there's alot of synthezoids that just turn up, without their pilots, seeming to be abandoned in their storage pods or hotel rooms. And no one can contact them ever again.
A clean energy system that siphons the free floating plasmas into a centrifugal generator that draws directly from the electronic imprints in the substance. The electric grid consists of communication lines, control stations, transformers, and distributors that aid in supplying power from the reactor plants to the consumers. Presently, the electric grid constitutes humongous power production units which generate millions of megawatts of power distributed across several departments.
Server BridgesIn order to support access for the local digital patrons, several large trusses braced between the two halfs of bhulok also carry heavy duty incal cables to physically transfer the visiting consciousnesses.
Conveyor TrainsPublicly available monorail carts that run the length of the valley slits' edges, between the spherical generators that cap the ends.
Centripetal ArchitectureCentripetal architecture normally follows O'neill cylinders where living space is arranged around a hollow center. As if its heart had somehow fallen outside its body, an upside down area hangs overhead no matter where one is.
Axial BarThe bar refers to the protoplasm powered lamp that puts out light in green and yellow frequencies. This lamp functions as a sort of 'sun' for those inside and is typically thought of as the 'common downward' for those at either side of the cylinder as that way is the most expedient exist.
Inner RimThe cylinder's inner circumference is mostly bear save for hundreds of cubicle rooms with open ceilings towards the axial lamp. There, crews can access the serviced meals and open entertainment onboard the bars and corridors that float between the rim and the lamp.
Outer RimThe outer circumference of the cylinder is not typically considered as part Viennese Waltz. It mostly consists of rentable single rooms, living apartments and the odd conference rooms whose lights can shine through to the inner rim windows like starlight.
Dignitatic AuraThe billions of thetíans who inhabit Bhulok emit the dignitatic auras that protects the settlement from emerging into some monstrous sentient entity. It takes the shape of an invisible cylinder that encompasses the twisting ridges that continuously spiral about the area.
Once they enter, it is difficult for them to leave. They tend to conjugate around areas with Alters and Cores to amalgamate with them and form completely new personalities.
Dyson's military council. You may not see it when you see it, but runners need to be able to deploy clever delaying tactics so they have time to make it from the other side. Once they cross, no one can force them back, but they also can never leave Manidweepa again. They tend to dissappear among the throngs of passing crews to find new employment and establish new lives.
home system. On the off chance there is an admitted betan, they are like to be a criminal of some kind. Not because they are anymore violent than anyone else, but because they would need to possess some far superior skill or connections or authority to not get caught leaving either the panteons or the probes.

Naming OriginsThe viennese waltz was an olden form of fast rotary dance whose movements were idealized to turn two into one.
lift your dresses high like cloaks, and bring your bodies under one coverThe dance required two distinct bodies to be arms' length from each other and in either a clockwise or counter clockwise motion.
It is quite a stretch to consider Viennese as an o'neill cylinder. But I suppose I can see the symbolism in two stations built from recycled parts revolving together. They're barely touching though.
