    ADD VIOLENCE Physical Component

    Let's get this conversation started. Here are a few things that immediately caught my attention when I opened the physical component:



    1) What does the "sCAVEdx-24.0.0" mean under Model No on the sticker?


    2) "USER ASSUMES ALL LIABILITY FOR THE OPERATION OF HTIS DEVICE UNDER GUIDELINES SE TFORTH IN STATUTE 322.772.8 -- ANY BREACH IS SUBJECT TO PENALTY AND PROSECUTION"

    What in the hell is Statute 322.772.8, and where is it coming from?


    3) The first line item under Firmware Notes: "Archived data no longer corrupts when Presence peripherals connected."
    So clearly this is connected to the Year Zero narrative, yeah?

    at first, i assumed that the "sCAVEdx-24.0.0" was a URL and that the serial no. would be a password, but it didn't bring me anywhere. other than that, it seems like a software version marker.

    Model numbers appear to be the same and serial numbers are unique.

    Everyone has 3 randomly selected labels as well as a unique model and serial #. That's it I think

    Might be nice to get a list of all plastic labels which have been seen thus far. After a cursory examination there appears to be at least:

    AMPLIFY CHAOS
    ANXIETY
    DEVIANCE
    DISORDER
    EMPATHY
    OVERSTIMULATE
    PRESENCE
    SELF-AWARENESS
    SUBMISSION

    Presumably there's just ones that we've already seen in covers/videos...

    All of those numbers and letters made me think of a DOI address but I haven't found anything yet

    Didn't all the exhibit numbers in the year zero ARG start with "24.___.____"

    that would mean this is the genesis, yeah? the first set of numbers.

    this makes me think that the world of year zero was meant to be a simulation, and we're seeing where it started (as others have proposed before).

    I'm not sure if this is nearly as complex as the Year Zero ARG; creating a narrative and an entire new world and all that. Most likely they're just references put in by 42. I think that the machine symbolizes the country or world and the manual is meant for the tiny and wealthy elite (operators) to control society and the political climate (the knobs, dials, switches and meters)

    Well if you look at the Patch Updates it says this is V 7.21 which would mean the PC is 24.7.21 ? which is in the middle of the YZ ARG?

    7.21 could be referencing 7/21, it's intended release date. I like the potential of your explanation though.

    Is the serial number unique?
    My spare labels were anxiety, self-awareness, and deviance

    Received mine today. My labels are "Amplify Chaos", "Submission" and "Disorder". Its a very interesting PC indeed. I really appreciate the detail and artistry that went into creating this and the NTAE physical component. I am excited for the future!

    My labels are 'Self-Awareness', 'Anxiety', and 'Deviance'.

    I showed the liner notes to my dev roommate for shits and giggles, and she did not disappoint in providing commentary out loud. "That and-statement is a mess! What is that empty array even DOING?"

    Labels I got were ANXIETY, AMPLIFY CHAOS, and PRESENCE.

    ANXIETY; DEVIANCE; SELF-AWARENESS

    Went over the quick reference, didn't find anything that stood out in terms of ARGishness.

    Anyone here with any relatively decent understanding of the Kardashev Scale? It has nothing to do with the Kardashians, right?

    From PANEL COMPONENT DESCRIPTIONS:

    ...Use for quick reference only full instructions and directives are available in user manual...

    The physical component includes a Quick Reference Guide, Panel Schematic Reference Sheet, and Spare Replacement Labels. We still don't have a User Manual... vinyl?

    Did anyone try any heat/cold test for thermographic paint with this component?
    (If you don't know what I'm talking about, see https://www.youtube.com/playlist?lis...sig3ACqmJn49sO The Null Corporation has a playlist on youtube about thermographic paint..)

    I noticed the lyrics in the booklet have added lines not in the digital files, including lyrics from The Fragile.

    Google "product lookup by serial number". I was trying to find what could be up with the unique serial numbers and the first result is pretty funny...

    The liner notes specifically say "WorldIntegrationAndExecution _42 Entertainment" so yeah, there's more to this than meets the eye. Also, has anyone else noticed that the block labels are actually stickers? Kinda cool.

    Extra lyrics/words in the printed songs (compared to the lyrics depicted in the Apple Music version of Add Violence; I added small commentary in [brackets]) :

    Less Than

    true believers
    did it feel that hole [literally says "feel", could be a typo/misprint?]
    doesn't it make you feel better

    The Lovers

    The Lovers arrive [Beginning of First Chorus]
    The Lovers return [Beginning of Second Chorus]
    I am godlike
    I am
    I am singularity

    This Isn't The Place

    I can still feel you, even so far away

    Not Anymore

    Watched myself become somebody else [this is an alternate of "started to turn into somebody else"]
    Covered in dust on the floor [this is an alternate of "my feet are nailed to the floor"]

    The Background World

    The Floating Shadow of Thought
    all The Dead smell of perfume whispers
    secrets surges maybe I will just stay awake

    Red swine eyelids
    You shut up, you saw him too, you see The Curse
    The Mirror

    If you could see inside
    If you were here to see
    My dreams are showing through
    Maybe this is what it appears to be

    Someone on Reddit got a number on one of their spare lables # 20500. https://www.reddit.com/r/nin/comment...TV&sh=ae432f4a
