To Whom It May Concern;
I'm going to be blunt: I'm terrible at formal letters. I've just recently arrived at our new home. I find it amazing! The city design leaves something to be desired, but I understand the haphazard way it was built was pretty much inevitable, considering the unexpected (and marvelous!) capabilities of the native fauna.
I'm writing to you today because I witnessed a live feed of a competitive sport using these fauna. The arena was defined by the boundaries of some kind of barrier. In layman's speak, I might hesitate to call it a "force field." It had the below properties (which I'm sure you're aware of, having been responsible in its creation):
- Existed as a hemispherical structure - presumably, given no massive impediments, it would form a complete sphere
- Had a noticeable yellow color, but did not obscure visibility into the structure (having not been inside, I do not presume to guess whether visibility out of the confined space is possible)
- Appeared to offer varying levels of protection based on the amount of force behind penetration events - for example: wind-blown leaves are able to pass through, while a caretaker trying to reach one of the fauna or the fauna, when hurled away by the competition, was unable to pass through; in the latter case, striking the barrier appeared to cause harm to the instigating creature
- Could be freely turned on or off with no apparent repercussions to those in or around the enclosed space
I hope my description of your product is sufficient to jog your memory of which device this is.
Without divulging any proprietary information, can you explain what mechanism fuels these barriers?
Further, purely for my own curiosity, can you describe what happens in the following cases:
- Can you see out of the enclosed space?
- Can the barrier be used as protection against the crushing depths of the ocean, or does water flow through like the wind-blown leaves?
- Would the barrier collapse if it were sufficiently "damaged," like hit points on a shield in a video game?
- Can the barrier be shaped or made smaller or larger?
- What happens to materials in the path of the barrier as it is forming?
- Can the barrier's color be changed?
Thank you for your time and attention.
P.S.: I really hope the answer isn't some magical mumbo jumbo. I gave up my old life to come here because everyone was throwing around "magic" as the solution to everything.
