Destecado said:This is why i am advocating that the "reality" of the tetrascape is not that far off from our own. There may be some minor differences, but the reality that the Old Ones created would have pretty much mirrored our own.
Then one runs into trouble of how they can be kept there...
Destecado said:Any changes to the laws would perhaps have occured when the tetrascape 9proto reality) fractured.
It is merely an easy mechanic by which the technology of the C'tan/Necrons could be invalidated. If this occurs after fragmentation then... well... you get into the question above.
Destecado said:Kage I know that you are not overly fond of the bubble analogy for these different realities...
No, that's incorrect. I'm against using it as an explanatory mechanism for warp travel such that a body translating to the warp maintains an inherent 'resistance' - a natural Geller Field - which resists the warp...
Erm... But now that I think about it, that's what I was operating on anyway. Bugger. So I'm not against it at all. I seem to recall that I was against it for another reason, however, but thankfully I haven't seen it in a while so I've now put it out of my mind!
Destecado said:It is my theory that the things that humanit calls deamons might actually be beings from another reality, that has intersected our own.
Erm... that's really not at all original or, indeed, surprising. That is what daemons are in the first place, even in GW's universe... Well, kind of.
Destecado said:The reality that they come from is not representative of the warp as a whole, it is just another reality among many out there.
And that's how I've always described it, i.e. "Otherworlds".
Destecado said:In this case, I view the contact point as the area that became the eye of terror.[/.quote][
For me it's a tad more complex than that, but there we go... essentially the same, just a few more additional bits about consensual reality, etc.
Destecado said:...but I think we need to get very specific on defining what these terms mean.
Well, they're not Tetrascapes as defined in the Eisenhorn books. When they're found they might be called Tetrascapes as the closest comparable phenomenon, even though they are not. I'm more tempted to view them as a form of expanded 'Horizon Gate', i.e. potentially linked to a common reality... One simple way of looking at it might be to ask the question: If you're inside the fragment, then what happens when you reach the 'edge' of that fragment? Do you translate instantaneously to the boundary of one of the spatially related fragments (i.e. they are correspondent) or would you be able to push yourself out?
That might help without trying to too quickly define concepts in the terms that you favour!
