I'm sorry I didn't know her. Condolences to her family and friends.

Good thinking about the horse. The plot is moving along nicely.

She was a very lovely lady and dearly missed.
I knew her briefly and still she is missed.

General / More on Transfer Portals
« Last post by Bynw on November 04, 2018, 07:56:32 pm »

@MerchantDeryni  had a comment/question in chat tonight which went like this:

[18:55] <MerchantDeryni> So if a transfer portal can transfer 284 miles I can get around the world with transfer portals. Iceland to Faroe Islands is 284 miles from shore to shore.
[18:55] <derynifank> Sounds like a great trip MD
[18:56] <~DesertRose> That'd be a question for KK, I think, MerchantDeryni.

Teleportation has some effects when it comes to physics and the conservation of energy and momentum. Of course the Deryni wouldn't know these terms but they would know limitations to using a Transfer Portal based on what happens if someone attempts to circumvent the laws of psychics too much. However that being said. A Transfer Portal might be able to circumvent the laws of physics and compensate for the conservation of energy and momentum. Since the Deryni are not capable, currently anyway, of teleporting without a Transfer Portal on both ends.

The following is a bit of the physics involved when teleporting without a Transfer Portal and what can happen.

Teleportation jumps as far as 50km (31 miles) would involve disorientation for a period of 20 to 120 seconds after arrival. This results from the law of conservation of momentum: on a rotating planet, two locations will have different rotational speeds and directions. A jump from a point on the Earth’s equator to one of its poles would result in a total velocity difference between the teleportor and his surroundings of over 3300 kph (2050.5 MPH), which would lead to a messy death in short order. Changes in altitude (actually all movement to locations of differing gravitational potential) will result in potential energy changes, manifesting themselves as changes in body temperature. A jump of 1 km (0.6 miles) straight down will result in a temperature increase of 2.5 degrees Celsius (36.5 F); this is sufficient to cause extreme fever, brain damage, and even death. A jump up will cool the body by the same amount, with equally serious results. To be safe, a jump would not involve an elevation change of more than 400 meters (1312 feet), and multiple jumps would not involve a cumulative elevation change or more than 600 meters (1968.5 feet) in one hour. 

We know that using a Transfer Portal that a Deryni can go a lot further than 31 miles distance, and without any disorientation after arrival. So it would seem that a Transfer Portal does compensate for those pesky laws of physics when it comes to the conservation of energy and momentum. Otherwise the poor teleporting Deryni would be disoriented on arrival for a time, or perhaps stumble and fall on arrival due to the change. Or even worse, end up as a grease spot on the wall of the room they just arrived in.

Glad to know that the financial burden has been lifted.  I'm sure this whole situation has been difficult and will likely remain so for a while, but that's one less thing to stress your family.

Still holding y'all up. :)

Thank you all for the support. Friends here helped also. My brothers funeral has been paid off in full, with change.
