Though she may seem less intellectually brilliant compared to many of the other characters in Steins;Gate, she has great importance in the series. For the other two, the black hole thing isn't real physics but neither is the very concept of time travel. Deciding to change the subject to something else, Mayuri recalls how she first came to the lab. If he succeeds in not doing that, he's free of the attractor field and the future can change greatly including in ways that undermine his own existence instead of his observations. The same can be said with beta world line where the world line value increase the influence of WW3 will be stronger as well. In some sense Okabe's stable time loop is the attractor fields 'solution' to all this tampering. Also, the reason why they needed to do all of this complicated stuff was to trick the Attractor Field into acting normally after the starting point A (Kurisu's death, Paper Stolen) while those actions deny in reality the access to the point B (WW3 aka time travel discovered). At divergence values close to the integer values, the outcomes become muddled and worldlines with divergence numbers in that region take on traits of both Attractor Fields; potentially but not necessarily negating the convergent outcomes of both Attractor Fields. Does it alter electrical impulses in the human's brain? Let's just assume that Forward Time Travel is complicated and stuff I guess. Beta Okabe is able to one day find the key to Steins Gate, meanwhile Alpha Okabe is pretty much trapped in a Mayuri death loop. Okabe have his reading steiner activate and went in to world line where there is already war break out at Okinawa. If he tries to go back into the past and change any of the events that lead to him being present and killing kurisu in the stable time loop prior to that point which undermined the observed reality of his(and future okabe's) shared past self, he'd be thwarted by the beta attractor field because it's not what 'happens' that matters, it's what's observed. Its kind of ironical that the VN starts with the words, that you have to be attentive and humans only perceive 1% of their enviroment. I really should play Steins;gate 0, that sounds like an interesting bit of exposition. Thank you! This universe uses a funny, complex, but self-consistent time travel system. Decorate your laptops, water bottles, helmets, and cars. This seems to cheer Okabe up, and they talk about getting the whole lab together next time to do a group cosplay. Thank you! Shot in the head. Kurisus death causes the dmail, that changes the worldline. As they get there, Okabe concludes that, based on the D-mails getting repeatedly pushed back, Mayuri will die that very day. Time is completely one-directed and no time paradoxes can happen even hypothetically. Then, we arrive at the question. The details are explained under the question Why does Okabe need to preserve past events to reach the Steins;Gate? -To simplify what I'm trying to say, an Attractor Field is a collection of individual worldlines with a common outcome. Or maybe S;G Okabe did get overwritten, and he was stabbed for another reason. It's not fine with an observer observing something that screws with other confirmed observable events in a contradictory way. "2" isn't something that exist, it's a concept to describe the state of the bananas. It can converge you back up to a point, but if you can identify the right thing to change and do so without violating any laws along the way, that's how you succeed in reaching that escape velocity and fooling the attractor field. Mayuri is Okabe’s childhood best friend. They want to make a great story not find out all the possibility of the story. Instead, Mayuri comes up and pushes him out of the way, consequently getting hit by the car and dying in Okabe's arms. I'm under an impression, that attractor fields exist only if a time-machine exists (specifically, time-machine, that is used to send the d-mails). Thanks, I'm glad you enjoyed my write-ups! I think some people here misunderstand the notion of a world-line jump; it's not a jump to a completely distinct line. They follow Kurisu Makise, Mayuri Shiina, and Rintaro Okabe, three characters from the Steins;Gate game, in three different alternative histories. Because of the importance of observers in this physics, time travel behaves differently from d-mails. Okabe lies flat on his back again, staring up at the sky. The potentials still exist, but which ones observers can observe is limited by the Attractor field. I think the most possible answer will be Okabe's 1st D-mail. What you've written is similar to what I have in mind. Steins Gate Necrosis Part 1 The Time Travel Nexus. consciousness is linked the role of the observer in determining reality, which is crucial the mechanics of the steins;gate world. What makes Mayuri … You can say that Kurisu's death is a start of a WW3 influence. I think it's cause human beings are the "easiest" way to correct reality. That brings us to the last point, and that's the role of consciousness. Namely it targets humans to change events which pertain to humans, and modifying their thoughts/actions which are just sequences of neural activations is simpler than deforming the world around them, but presumably it could also target other matter. There does seem to be a theme within the steins;gate universe that human consciousness is "special" and transcends even the laws of physics in some way. It's not impossible that there was some downstream effect of that text that led to Ruka being a boy, maybe it led to her mom getting sick so Ruka was conceived under different circumstances. Kurisu theorizes that, since negating Rintaro's D-Mail stopping Suzuha delayed the attack, undoing the effects of the other D-Mails could bring them back to a World Line where they have an IBN 5100, allowing them to hack into SERN and delete the records that set them on their trail. So you shouldn't think of two world-lines as separate, but rather as mostly collinear with a temporary loop originating at the time-travel modified point and ending at the next point of convergence. So, if time-machine doesn't exist, the world is completely free from any convergence, since there is no reason for these rules. Even though Rintaro time leaps a multitude of times to avoid her dead, not even his best efforts can trick fate. However, events that are not critical to that outcome can be influenced by other Attractor Fields. B) Okabe tries to trick his past self -> shared past okabe never sends the first d-mail or alters the events which lead to him being here in the first place as observed by himself -> observed causal paradox. Because thats what essentialy saved Kurisu. A human will always exclude information thats not necessary to complete a task and dont have to process everything. Okabe then finally tells Kurisu about the D-mail, and after he finishes Mayuri calls him. Hit by a policeman's stray bullet. Due to Attractor Field convergence, Mayuri is destined to die on August of 2010 in the Alpha Attractor Field. With d-mails, you get a cross-worldline information/cause which travels back in-time to a point on your current worldline and switches to an active branch subject to attractor field forces. Now the futures reality depends on what Okabe seems as important to cause his actions. This conclusion base on what happened in S;G0 Pandora's Box. Suzuha get to a conclusion that it might be because Kurisu want to save Mayuri and thus help Okabe that is why she lending a hand to SERN. The key to change something that depends on Okabes person is to alter what he perceives. That is the different on Kurisu's and Mayuri's death. Mayuri figures that Okabe is hurting inside, and that it's all her fault, as well as that she doesn't want it to go down this way. Because the system cant decide that, it always have to consider every information available. At the same time, Kurisu is asked by Daru to get one of his playboy books in Okabe's belongings, deciding that she will sue later. Same thing with him altering the events he observed surrounding Makise's death in certain (but not all) ways. (Also, Suzuha doesn't understand anything about Time Travel, even Mayuri understands more, but that's because she's pretty clever.). Its described that a system cant decide what information is relevant for a context. Does it affect peripheral nervous system to change how the person feels himself? The strength of the field at a point is proportional to how far-reaching the causal implications of an event on the time stream would be if observed. Kurisu is one of the main characters of Steins;Gate, a major posthumous character in Steins;Gate 0 via Amadeus. To break out of it, he has to understand the rules and work within them, which is something I really liked about the show. I think it's because the subject of his D-mail. Yes, this is a good point about the attractor field not having arbitrary strength. In this subreddit, you may submit posts about the Science Adventure series.
