“I think we’ve gone hyperspace,” I told my friend AL on the phone today, and she didn’t know what I was talking about. “It’s a video game thing,” I told her. But I don’t think that’s precisely true.
“Outside of normal space,” Ming said when I asked him about hyperspace. “Really really fast.”
Then there’s the famous Beastie Boys lyric “and if you play Defender I could beat you hyperspace.” I love that line.
I think of it as a place where the old rules don’t matter.
