    The main thread is unfortunately inundated with fan theory discussion, so much so that the actual technical research is getting buried, so I feel like a separate thread is in order.

    Since I did torture myself with going through the 20 odd pages of that thread, I'm going to take the liberty to quote some of the noteworthy posts there that would fit here. If anyone is uncomfortable with me doing this, please let me know and I'll proceed to delete the post(s).
