The little people of northern Minnesota

Let's find out about who and what's out there, and how they do what they do.

Yes. If you recall the Philadelphia Experiment, that's how sailors ended up inside bulkheads. (That occurred because they used technology to push a ship into the Other Realm... when the power was cut, it just dropped out wherever, with no concern for consequence. Under natural conditions, it is virtually impossible to materialize inside another object.)

The latter. If you look at Larson's atomic displacement notation, that A-B-C rotation (see page 132, Nothing But Motion), the A-B represents a temporal, magnetic rotation and the C a spatial, electric one. What the RS2 folks discovered is that C is actually a C-D -- perfect atomic symmetry, and the C-D is a "cosmic magnetic rotation" of which we only see the net effect on our side, as Larson's "C" value, which we call "electric." So if your atoms are balanced A-B=C-D, rather than A-B-C, you have access to both realms.

It is also good to remember that only animate matter will be present in cosmic realm. So possible tooth fillings are lost when one comes back from the cosmic realm.

So when you come back you might be naked^^ But where do your tooth fillings and stuff end up? Will they just dissolve gradually into the whereversphere (atmosphere, etc. depending where your entrance is)? Or will they accumulate with all the stuff other people left behind in a big pile right at the boundary?

The analysis indicates that there is something in living matter that keeps cohesion (in the RS, they are designated "life units"). A crew going through the gate with synthetic clothes and metal guns would come out naked and unarmed on the other side (also missing things like tooth fillings, eye glasses and contact lenses). So you really can't send a MALP to do you investigating! source (talking about starway systems)

I think that the matter is simply lost in time, because inamimate matter does not have consciousness to get back, thats what conscious living matter is for. Or in the halfway unit-speed boundary as in light speed.
Maybe there is a "time masheen" that will allow inanimate matter to travel vast distances (in space through time) in an instant, like a Stargate.

You have a piece of consciousness in your teeth fillings, so they are not totally inanimate. They tend to stay attached, unlike your clothes which were just "issued" with no soul/spirit attachment. See the notes on the Keris sword on Antiquatis to get the idea.

The stuff that disappears is distributed nonlocally; in other words, the atoms are disbursed over a wide area.

Have you ever heard about this? Cappadocia (Turkey), "the land of the gnomes".

If you want to know how to interact with the Little People, watch an old Disney film called Darby O'Gill and the Little People (starring Sean Connery). Darby (Albert Sharpe) does a superb job with his knowledge of their behaviors and idiosyncrasies.
Thanks for that recommendation. What a great film and I didn't know Sean Connery could sing! I'll remember not to ask for a fourth wish; of course that's what helped out ol' Darby, so never say never I suppose. The late night ride was a real exciting part and the relationship Darby has with King Brian is especially charming -- kind of adversarial but then again not really, like two brothers going at it but they're always there for each other when there's trouble. Seems like you have to be a rascal in order to hang out with one.

The DVD extras were great, too -- the way they staged Darby walking through the LM's cave was incredible, and so was the way Brian and the leprechauns were made to look small. That was real movie magic back then. Computer generated effects could not do better than how they did things in those days. I get that B-5 needed CGI, and it worked beautifully, but what movies I've seen the last few years are a real bore when it comes to effects, and in just about every other way. Thanks again. This movie really wakes up the magic.

They did an excellent job in bringing out the "trickster" nature of the Little People--like when Darby blows a wish to let the people in the Pub see King Brian--and they do, as a rabbit! Didn't think that one out.. and Darby being an intelligent man!

The final scenes in the Cóiste Bodhar were some of the best writing and acting I've seen in a long time. Particularly the expression on King Brian's (Jimmy O'Dea) face when he realizes he can trick Darby into making that fourth wish--and the consequences of him making it.
