Quantum punk - the only problem is you don't know what it is until you look at it, and when you do its wavefunction collapses and it isn't quantum anymore...

Are you certain of that, my dear?
Honestly, it all sounds rather boring to me....I think I'll check on the cat instead.

That's an impressive entrance in the last photo. Also I always thought there's some sort of link between the tiki efigees (ancestor, symbol of fertility) of the Polynesian and the totem poles of the North West American Native (emblem of family clan).

I would counter that with the many worlds interpretation, in some other universe you do find out what it is you're looking at! In Quantumpunk it's doesn't matter what you choose to do, because an infinite number of versions of you are are already picking all possible choices! Although it'd be kind of fun to walk up to the convention center and go through two doors at the same time, or have to Quantumpunks go through one another like ghosts - or worse, superimpose over one another. Imagine the security needed for a convention center!

One final characteristic of Quantumpunk meetings is to bring down the temperature of the convention center, until all Quantumpunks reach the state of Bose-Einstein condensate. All Quantumpunks become indistinguishable from one another and their behavior is identical throughout the convention center.

Indigenous NZers  and Pasifika, that is Maori and other Polynesian cultures, share common East Asia ancestry with indigenous Americans. Albeit they will have diverged 25- 50 000 years ago. As there is commonality in myth, legend and language , there will be similarity in art and design.

Which means that the tradition is possibly tens of thousands of years old,  as settlement of the Southern Pacific Islands did not start until about 3000 years ago. I wonder if I can find a similar equivalent among the Mesoamerican peoples. There's a number of examples that are not quite the same but seem like odd representations of people as opposed to gods. One such example is the giant Olmec heads in the southern Gulf of Mexico coastal states.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Olmecs


The Olmec are the oldest Mesoamerican civilization and are considered the progenitors of all other urban settlements in Mesoamerica (as opposed to nomadic or semi nomadic people, who certainly were there long before the Olmec). Their culture encompasses the period 2500—400 BCE.

Very little is known about the Olmec heads and they've sparked a lot of speculation, including an African genesis due to the facial features on their art. But genetic analysis on Olmec remains has shown the mitochondrial DNA points exclusively to Native American bloodlines which firmly keeps the Olmec within the same group who crossed the Bering Straight 20k years ago. The writing system did exist by then, but it's not deciphered the way that Mayan and the much later Aztec (Nahuatl) are. So the nature of the giant heads is pure speculation. Scientists think these are not gods, since each head appears to be unique, so the thought is that these are portraits of important people.

PS as far as the fellow who was cutting off ancestor efigee genitalia, I think I know what the proper punishment should be.
