Lyceums were the personal neutrionic hand held devices given to each passenger and crew member on the space station Laurasia. They were used as personal journals on their mission as well as to communicate directly with friends and family on the surface of planet earth. The following are random excerpts from the personal Lyceum of Chris Lehrer.

After the global revolution and prior to the great destruction much of the internet was preserved by the Ministry of Science and Technology (MoST). Sounds and visions from planet Earth were cherished on long excursions aboard Laurasia. This - is Accept.
Haud Ignota Loquor [Latin] - I Speak Not of Unknown Things
Science and theology are similar in that they have great potential for being abused and neglected. I don't have a problem with science as much as I do with theology in that regard but I don't trust either (or anything) once it has massive appeal because that's how the abuse and neglect becomes useful. - Akio Tsukino
Akio Tsukino immigrated from Japan to the United States with his parents when he was four years old. His father, Haruto, was a pilot in a private space program. Akio was a Navy SEAL, and was awarded the Bronze Star Medal with Combat V. He received a bachelor’s degree in engineering and a doctorate in psychology but later joined Lehrer/Sheen industries as Chief Technology Officer (CTO) in the field of robotics. Just prior to the Global Revolution he remotely trained Christian Lehrer in his early days on the space station Laurasia, and continued as a volunteer worker; a dear friend of the Lehrer family.
Akio, A male Japanese name from 昭 (aki) "bright" combined with 夫 (o) "husband, man", 男 (o) "male" or 雄 (o) "hero, manly." Tsukino meaning "moon field". From tsuki meaning "moon" and no meaning "field."
Akio was the primary psychologist for the space program, a subsidiary of Lehrer/Sheen Industries, who were the manufacturers of the space stations Laurasia and Gondwana. Akio's wife, Chiyeko, worked alongside them at the space program as an administrative consultant for medicinal advancement.
Chiyeko, a female Japanese name pronounced CHEE yeh ko, often used in English speaking countries before the revolution, the name may be a respelling of the Japanese name Chieko since the syllable 'ye' does not occur in Japanese.
