Overthinking Portal(2007)

Postby Ahsmeah » Sun Apr 07, 2013 4:40 am

I have some questions about the game Portal. Now I know the game was very fun, full of logic puzzles and a few silly jokes-- but I wanted to take things a step further.
What about experimenting with the portals?

Experiment #1:
What if I tied a string to itself using two portals?


And then plucked it.. When would it stop moving? How would it move?

Experiment #2:
What if I slammed an object on itself using portals?

|O (item) O|


What would happen? I mean everything has an equal or opposite reaction-- would the portals be shoved away from each other and the item just be left alone by the portals? Would the item fly between the portals without stopping?

Cis or trans? That's what matters.
