Jellyfish Specimens
Collecting Jellyfish Specimens for a Good Cause, the Jellyfish Transducer Project



Collecting specimens for the Jellyfish Transducer turned out to be very enjoyable and I have to admit I probably collected a few too many. But it was for a good cause and for research. The teknowledgy was exciting to use, involving Levitating Light Beams and Electrical High Voltage Connection Bolts (not at all harmful to the jellyfish although perhaps not exactly pleasant, either).

The Blue Spectrum Beam Amplifiers were super easy to set in place atop the Multispectrum Beam Funnels that lit and powered the interior of the Multiple Transducers holding the captured jellyfish. All this was sitting atop a repurposed Hover Saucer, itself floating on a Chakra Spectrum Light Power Wheel. Empty Transducers floated nearby to attract the curious jellyfish, whereupon the Light Tractor Beams pulled the creatures into the transducers.

I enjoyed managing the entire operation from my own Levitating Light Beam and using a Multifunction Lighted Keyboard Minipad. It was a magnificent operation, if I say so myself, and one I am sure qualifies me for Class 2 Engineer.

Having captured the hapless creatures I used them as lures to attract trilobites to the Zap Species Mixer to become jellyfish. I might also have needed to recycle some of them for parts, but that turned out to be not necessary.

What an easy sale convincing sick trilobites to go into the Zap Species Mixer to become jellyfish, especially after I warranteed jellyfish as climate change immune. (I am only fairly sure of this but I appeared to be absolute, which convinced them. Whew!) Gave me the opportunity I had been looking for to use the creature tentacles from the humanoid I recycled. I had enough of them so that I didn't need to recycle any captured jellyfish.

I didn't tell the trilobites the whole truth about their situation because I knew they couldn't handle the truth. It was easier to tempt them than to educate them, but if they don't evolve quickly into jellyfish, then the only option they are going to have left is one they will hate and probabaly refuse to take. We will have to wait and see how that turns out.

For now, I think this species mixer solution I set up on the ocean floor worked as well as it did because they were drawn to the glowing lights of the Multiple Transducers. I made a note of that in my journal. Glowing lights=come hither!

The Jellyfish Transducer, a phenomenal operation sitting atop a Zapadapt Ocean Platform, performed perfectly. I fed the recycled creature tentacles into the Zap Species Mixer, along with volunteer trilobites, to be passed into the Internal Spinning Whirligig, painted red for effect, and then through a Perferated Convection Pipe to the Transductionformation Chamber where, in a flash of white light, they became a completely new species, a jellyfish.

I had no control over the color they would eventually become except that the only choices available were teal or purple, with specks of red or orange on the tentacles, if they were lucky. Not all of them acquired that bling. From there they passed upwards into the Consecutive Transducers, where their form was solidified and permanetized by the electrically generated Power Bolt Form Zapper atop the transducers.

They then passed through the Extrudomatic Pipe System attached to the back of the transducers and were extruded as jellyfish. From my Zapadapt Control Panel I facilitated and oversaw the entire operation via Organic-to-Metallic Pipe Connectors which are fashioned from one of the most useful pieces of equipment I have ever come across, Lava Lamps from the Meghalayan Age. A Dura-Shake Ankle Grabholder was required to ensure I didn't slide off the control panel onto the ocean floor below when the transducer operation, in full tilt manufacturing mode, occasionally causes the platform to shake like an earthquake.

The operation was a wonderful success, undoubtedly Zapadapt Class 2 Engineer work from a Class 1 Engineer, and spewed out innumerable jellyfish for posterity. Now what to do with the rest of the trilobites that refuse to become jellyfish? I think I am going to just tell them, "Look, you are going to go extinct. What part of extinct do you not understand?"

Om, Class 1 Engineer
