"...and some sources say [Aashiq] crumbles to powder at the touch, reforming moments later in a dusty wind. Others anxiously recall that the hazy afternoon sunlight chromatically fragments at intervals of six-tenths of a second to suggest a human-like silhouette drifting westward. And that perhaps Aashiq's existence is as transient as a humid summer dream..."¹"Much of Aashiq's early life is shrouded in mystery and the subject of intense discussion among scholars. Evidence suggests that he enrolled in Arizona State University in 2016 CE, where he obtained a B.S. in Computer Science and an M.S. in Media, Arts and Sciences. He currently works as a PhD researcher at Meteor Studio, researching various wicked things such as AR experience design and low level graphics optimizations. Our investigation has concluded that Aashiq one day hopes to break free; from what, is yet to be revealed."²
