Is it just me or does Masked Gamer constantly get into pointless heated arguments for no reason at all?

Hey if the bounderies of theories don't get tested, you'll never know if they're valid or not. I only argue every theory because I have no real opinions on the debated elements of The Way.

:?
You do realise that was irony/deliberate hipocracy? I was pointing out you get into pointless heated arguments for nothing and I do it all the time.

But anywho, I am beginning to understand your backward ways.

I've never noticed that you get into heated arguments, but cool, I'm not alone (despite a probable difference in motives).

I do it, not only to argue a case, but I get angry easily. Sometimes it is fun. I managed to have full blown argument with some guy about the pronounciation of Jeruh.

Jeez, where were you for that Richard Dawkins thang? The biggest and most heatedest (yes I know heatedest is not a word) fury-engulfed heat/fire argument type-esque thing ever. It was so furious, that it was engulfed by the fire of 1000 suns and was destroyed with the swords of 1000 unwashed Arabs.

I lost you at "Jeez", but I'll take your word for it.

OK, back on topic. What I was trying to say was IF there was Upper Way. Yes, I said if. Let's just take a moment to absorb that. *absorb* OK, IF there was an Upper Way in Dream Estrana, then there should be one in real life, becuase DE is an exact replica of the real Estrana. Whether or not the Upper Way exists is another matter.

Well its not an exact replica of Estrana. Not to mention, all the "upper way" stuff in Dream Estrana DEFINITELY doesn't exist where it does in regular Estrana. That would make no real sense, would it?

Anyways, the upper way never really seems to bear any real significance to the series. Unless that's where Rhue flies off to in the Lexus ending...

To be fair, just because they haven't travelled there doesn't mean it has no significance. It could be a metaphor for or a hint at something else. I doubt Lun would just put it in for kicks.

How can you say that with such certainty? As I already suggested, who knows what that place in Dream Estrana might be? The reality in the way might be different from ours. Kloe ends up in a really weird spot too when on trial by the blana sera. That might be a similar dream thingy or a physical version of the upper way or just something different all together, a higher plane of being?...

Well, somehow I doubt the upper way exists inside the Arm of Estrana. Also, Reflective Sky isn't actually connected to Estrana in any way.

I just don't think that anything we see in DE is a good measure of what exists in The Way. For instance, portals and teleporters have never been seen anywhere in The Way.

See, that wasn't too hard was it? That was a good answer for reasons why the Upper Way does not exist. But could you please explain why DE is not an exact replica of Real Estrana.

Remember, coming up with a feasible answer always helps.

The connections and random teleportation symbols that have never been seen ANYWHERE else in the way, let alone in Estrana. Mismatching interiors in some buildings. Back entrances to buildings that lead to bizarre landscapes. Not to mention the people who inhabit the city, which while they are not a part of the landscape, they do change the look, feel and meaning of things.

In short, I just don't think that a twisted world, compiled by a magic sword that is TRYING to screw with Rhue/the user's mind is an accurate reflection of reality.
