The point has been brought up that a portal might want different things than what a tower would want. I suppose that's true, but if it's something boring like "allow free access to and from the MK for casters and nobody else" I'll be pretty disappointed. Unless the newly aware portal decides to have a hissy fit about having been hacked and...um, no, that would also disappoint. I'm not sure what the portal will do if it's awakened but I'm hoping it's not boring.

All I know is it probably won't like being sealed.

    You know, upon reflecting on this update for a week, I like it even more.

    The thinkamancers can't deal with the world of Stuff, where there are hard answers that aren't what you'd like to think they are. They may have thought they understood everything, but when dealing with forces that aren't as flexible as the human mind, their plans hit a brick wall, symbolized by bedrock itself. It reminds me of when politicians try to manipulate science. Here's an old example, which has nothing to do with any current politics. No need for a debate on Stupidworld here. If you disagree, please PM me!

    And Dirtamancer is talking in physical metaphors. He still perceives himself as a moon. Big Think has learned you give casters perceptions based on their discipline. This is why the strings/fabric metaphor works on the first try.

    Jed can learn, therefore he can rewrite his own string. Therefore, the portal golem might be the same, but with infinite juice could rewrite everyone's string. Hmm....
