Default Jump Space and other descriptions

I found the following comment in quite an old thread, and rather than doing a resurrection of said threat, thought that I would bring forward the idea of the original poster, and generate some new discussions.

As long an human anatomy does not change significantly, I assume that lower Tech Level items will not change that much, A mousetrap will look like a mousetrap (but maybe by other names). a shovel is still a shovel, and entrenching tool is likely to look like something in current use, knives/forks/spoons/plates will look like current dinnerware, those sort of things. Now, high tech items, those might be quite interesting, although I am not sure how much smaller cell phones will get, although they may be much more capable.

As for Jump Space, I sort of view that, if you are looking out through a port or on a video screen, as the rendering by a crazed chimpanzee of the Aurora Borealis that is in constant random motion. Viewing for even a short time may trigger an epileptic attack in susceptible individuals, while extended viewing can result in a catatonic state, which may or may not be permanent. For these reasons, direct viewing of Jump Space is highly discouraged.

that do business in great waters;
These see the works of the LORD,
and his wonders in the deep.
