Sorry to say that, Teoh, but YOU'RE A FREAK! It's indeed all
very strange and weird but very imaginative, but my brain
has not enough windings to make up a picutre of what you're
talking about. I didn't read *everything* because of that.
Have you got some illustrations or so available? Or could
you draw some? Or would it be too difficult because of the
multi-dimensionality? Are the realms some kind of parallel
universes, because there are three of them? Why are the
Realms only "somewhat" 3-dimesional? I can't imagine a
3.5-dimensional space actually. 4 dimensions are already
difficult enough (what would 5 dimensional space be like
then?!). And, what is "force" if not kg*m/s^2? Besides, is
"Ferochromon" derived from "ferrum" (iron) and "chrome"?
Since the Realms consist of lattices that need to be pushed
forward or whatever be penetrated, can I imagine this
basically like a liquid? Like walking through water, just
without updrift but instead something similar to
airpressure that keeps you on the floor (or whatever
corresponds to "ground" in your world)?

Yours, totally confused,
