is following a given path of development we are currently deeply involved in.
I wanted some feedback...
The big -IF-
IF an Otaku did the programming for a given piece of simsense hardware
IF a form was used instead of a 'program'
IF a magician were to use the simsense hardware
IF he were Astral Perceiving
Would the interface work?
Basis for argument ...
The Resonance is always adapting, always evolving. Forms, the Otaku
themselves, and their creations are always doing what they can to function "at
their ultimate finest".
A Form is devised from an Otaku's skills, both as a programmer and with the
"Living Persona". Astral Perception is functional with -only- living beings
(ignoring spirit categories like Ghosts for this argument). The Form in
question (the simsense interface programming) is derived from those same kind
IF the argument is disproven, completely within SR mechanics as they currently
stand (NOT limiting to a single text), then I could concur.
But IF the argument cannot be so disproven, by ALL witnesses involved, then
maybe, just maybe, the first step could be taken towards Magic/Matrix
interfacing within the realm of SR.
(And YES, there are literally hundreds of hours of debate and theory that are
starting to come to a head here, I'll explain more at a later date)
The big -IF- ???
IF there was an Otaku who would do such of course...
-K (who sent a copy of this directly to DLoH Mike just to see if a response
would occur, and if so, what it would be)
