Re: magic vs. technology

The thing that should be pointed out is that magic and technology both converge because they are both manipulators of existance, if they were truly unconnected then there would be no plane or point of interaction between either system on a reality (no dimension hopping, time travel, FTL, etc). That ...

Re: magic vs. technology

A neat theory on the forces of the universe, is that they all stem from a single force. When the universe was created, there was one 'master' energy. Over time it broke down into smaller and smaller conflicting parts (Electromagnetic, Light, Matter, etc)... I think that is how that theory went anyw...

Re: magic vs. technology

But in the end, what we are talking about right now is perspective. The perspective of people who live in different time lines; therefore, the people have different experiences and expectations. However, that does not change what things are. Technology is technology, magic is magic. No matter how m...

Re: magic vs. technology

As Arthur C. Clarke famously said, 'sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.' As both magic and technology are epistemological formats requiring mechanistic structures this is consistent with the consilienist conception of the unity of knowledge.

Re: Crossovers. How did it happen? (expect spoilers)

Canon Goes by Route 2 (AGITATOR) of Melty Blood, and Fate Route of F/SN. In AGITATOR, Wallachia is stopped, but not destroyed, and Shion leaves to prepare for his next arrival. In Fate, the 'suface' grail was destroyed without a wish being made, just like in the previous grail war, with the 'underg...

I couldn't choose between Arc and Aoko. But as I love women that have a bit-out-of-this-world way of thinking (aka lack of common sense :lol: ), I go with the cute airheaded vampire... :D I also have a hard time choosing between the two of them, but it was Arc who drew me into Tsukihime from the ar...

Gargoyles and To Aru Majutsu no Index's juxtaposition of magic and science seemed better than the Harry Potter conception of magic, it wouldn't take much to see something similar in the Nasuverse.

That's another reason why I can't go along with a Sakura/Shirou pairing, putting two broken people together is a recipe for disaster both in real life and in fiction, unfortunately, even though I don't dislike Sakura. Really? Then can you give me several examples from literary canon to convince me?...

Sakura did care about Shirou. She cared about him so much that she was willing to kill him rather than yielding him to anyone else (as in love you in a psychopathic way). Shirou was essentially the only ray of light in Sakura's life. Of course she would be driven into a frenzy if someone even revea...

Heheh, glad I'm not the only one who noticed that the H scenes from Fate and UBW are on Valentine's Day. 8) I'm impressed. Certainly never thought of it. Anyways..... I really dunno. Probably a coin toss between Sakura and Hisui. Even though I like Kohaku, I'd also be very afraid of her :lol: One h...

Definitely Rin for me, but whatever i did it would probably have to be expensive or she wouldn't be too happy >.< Same for me here, and as for getting the best stuff for her, if you know where to look, top quality can be get relatively cheaply as the old saying goes.

I'd rather Rin - or any heroine - find someone who will work on a relationship on the basis of it actually being a union of equals, not being the case of one or another person in it being 'the one to take the reins'. Not like it matters, anyway. That's pretty much my preference as well, but that's ...

Picked Akiha. With Akiha you still can fight for your fate (and face) given enough determination, with Rin you're subjected to obedience from the start and forever ever. That's not true, Rin herself even said that she needed someone to keep her from overdoing things at times. In another word, she c...
