Hello all! And again, thank you for letting me ask these questions. And thank you so much for all your ideas, suggestions, and critiques. In my novel, there exists a steel room. The only way into and out of this room is a rather thick steel door. The room the door opens up to is made of the same substance as the door. The door fuses itself seamlessly to the room when it shuts. This is science fiction, dear friends. Allow for some ‘Yeah, this could work if only the universe functioned this way’. The hero has the power to tap into the energy of the particles residing in the Bulk or on other Branes and, through the willful creation of superstrings that link other Branes to our Brane, can transfer energy from foreign Branes to ours and vice versa. The hero needs to get through the door to the corridor behind. This is the question: What’s the best (read coolest) way to do it? I was thinking of trillions (one for each molecule) of self-contained micro-nuclear explosions around the edge of the door caused by tapping into another Brane and transferring a high energy particle stream into ours which causes the molecules on the outside of the door to fission (all extra energy gets transferred back to another Brane by the hero’s abilities). At which case, one simply needs to pull or push on the door to open it. Any better ideas? A.M.
