Summary

Дисперсия 01 sm

Dispersion, the main character

The protagonist, a young unicorn mare from Canterlot named Dispersion, comes to Ponyville in order to observe ponies who live in a simpler, more tolerating society than that of Canterlot. Dispersion appears to have knowledge concerning various types of science as she tries to help ponies around her with the use of practical advice.

With the exception of the first issue, which introduces the series, each issue tells a short story about a fallacy, cognitive bias, thinking error, etc. Examples include anchoring, gambler's fallacy, hindsight bias, illusory correlation and the halo effect. Some issues share the same location, occasionally continuing the plot from previous ones.

Many canon characters appear in the series including Twilight Sparkle, Applejack, Rarity, Fluttershy, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, Cutie Mark Crusaders, and background ponies such as Derpy and Lyra.
