[2019.3.12] Mech-conceptions

When you're two fat fingers into some gin and composing your mech thoughts, there's really no better music to go with it than The Glitch Mob. Yeah, I figured I'd just jump right into it.   Last time we left off looking at the possibilities of a Lace-infused mech. The idea was that these mechs have a series of stacked plates that interact with each other that composes their brain. Let's call it the cerebral core, because that sounds really really coooooooool. And in some way, this allows them to interface with the Lace.   On the other end, they need some interface with a humanoid body. Of course, as everyone knows the coolness of your mechs is directly proportional to the coolness of the way that the humanoid-mech interaction works. It can't just be wires to the brain, no no no. Lets instead explore the relationship between the Knowing 's soul and body. Because in Halûme the soul is from which magic flows, it makes sense that there is an interaction between the person's body and soul.   Perhaps there are specific people who are able to manipulate their own limbs through instinctual magic, even when their brain fails them. It'd be like a closed system version of the data magic we talked about yesterday. Plus, it affords for a Doctor Strange-esque narrative where the incontinent can regain use of limbs, albeit differently, through the implementation of magic. I like this already because mechs are such a statement about ableism and a body narrative.   So in this situation, the mechs are controlled via the soul, which affords for an instantaneous extension of the extant magographical nervous system.
