    The thing about the goo is that it blocks the artifact's "magic" it does not remove it. As soon as it is free from the goo, the artifact becomes dangerous again. I am not sure how that would work with thought/idea thing.
    In Akashic feild theory, all things are interconnected and artifacts would be a physical representation and locus point for a particular thought/idea. By giving something a "goo bath" you would remove it from the field, therefore removing it from this source of "power", rendering it inert. Once it is un-gooed however, it reconnects with the akashic field and has power once more. In essence, you goo something, you pull its batteries.

    Not my fault, you were pushing me with the Akashic field thing. This was just a logical progression of the discussion.
    How was I pushing you??

    Okay, for a second there I thought you were going to propose some weird "It's all in their minds" explanation for the existence of Artifacts.

    I think I like the "Force did it" idea better. That would then make it more appropriate to say that, for example, McPherson and Wells got seduced by the dark side of the Force

    Nah dude, I was just running with your initial post and excerpt from TV tropes

    Dunno if you need "the force" to explain human failing but sure
    Another thought if you don't like the "oggity boogity" of Akashic field theory is the more "scientificly rooted" idea of Chaos theory, specifically "the butterfly effect"

    Why don't we just call it the Oggity Boogity Field Theory? I'd like to know what happens when Oggity Boogity interacts with metallic Unobtainium.

    Dunno, what happens when you inject a matter/antimatter stream through a heisenburg compensator?

    I think I like the Akashic field theory the best. Though I wonder about the name of that field. Isnt the Akashic record a record of our past, present and future? Then why is a magic field called Akashic?

    Only if you reverse the polarity.



    (I had forgotten how far back "reverse the polarity" goes until recently, when I was watching an old Star Trek TOS episode. Mr. Spock gives the order "Reverse the polarity" and I nearly fell out of my chair laughing.)

    Ahhh, sorry for the delay.
    *In essence* the akashic records are indeed a record of "all time and space", yet it is defined as something that can be "tapped into" by those capable of doing so. It's not so much a "written peice of work" that can be understood and evaluated on that level, but more a "living peice of work" that constantly evolves as knowlege changes. To put it in "sci-fi" terms it would be sorta like a "warp field" in as much as it exists on a level that exists "parallel" to ours and via training or technology it can be accessed.
    The "problem" here is that when you use the term "magic" 99.95% of the population are thinking "oggity-boogity" and think that saying "ah-la peanut butter sandwitches" makes a fireball that blows your enemy apart.
