I am sure that this is a scenario we have all encountered. We have all of the expensive sensors that money can buy to protect our vintage collection of bottle caps and Golden Girls memorabilia from theft, but our circa 1987 Coca-Cola commemorative Bea Arthur cap has gone missing. Le gasp.
However, fortune has smiled upon us by way of
questionable leaps in logic scientific deduction and credit stealing good detective work. This guy is not using existential crises incarnate transporters to get in and out of their store/mother's basement. They are simply joining to points in space time and stepping into my . . . I mean their secret bunker.
And here in lies the rub. I don't have a sensor that is specifically calibrated to "guy joining points in spacetime". That would be ridiculous. I do, however, have a sensor that detects regional increases in the force of gravity.
So, since my understanding of gravity is "mass bends space time then magic happens" would my localized gravity-o-meter be able to detect his intrusion into my most holiest of locations? If not, what kind of sensor (based on real physics) would I need?
Note, I am not looking for a pressure sensor or laser alarm type of thing as he can get in and out quite quickly. The attaching of two points in spacetime has a runtime of seconds to a minute depending on distance. But after that it can be held for an extended amount of time and released at will. So we need an ambush. Also it is not something you can "accidentally" walk into as until the two points are joined, you can't "cross over". Plus that would defeat the purpose of an ambush.
