The term Quanta was coined so that the story of the spirem race could be told. That is to say, Quanta provide a physical dimension where spirem biophotonic spiral could have a relative body of atomic matter.
Quanta is also populated by the human race. However, these humans are governed by spirems.
The Quanta of the Star Ways is the sphere which represents part of the ‘parallel’ world of the characters. It is also the preferred state of existence for a spirem. It spirals in co-existence with the other two spheres of the Star Ways.
