Just had another idea laid to waste by the Greg man:
 


Hey, me again. Posted Image

I've been thinking about Nikila's Kanohi mask and how it might possibly tie in with the concept of alternate dimensions. I looked at the mask's page on BS01 and I couldn't help thinking the information on it was rather scarce. So I thought that maybe its power could be explained a bit more thoroughly.

Apparently, the Kanohi can alter the probability of a situation, either by increasing its chances of occuring, or lessening them. Now I'm assuming it wouldn't work with major "situations" like making Makuta's plan less likely to succeed, but it could alter some minor situations that would be useful in battle, or on a mission. This got me thinking, however, that no matter how you put it, it seems that altering the probability of an event is not just increasing or decreasing its chances of happening, but also altering the chances of something else having happened, something in the past that would've led to your desired outcome in a situation, and that you're not necessarily aware of. So basically, in changing the likelihood of a certain situation, this mask would inevitably have to interfere with an action or decision made by someone in the past, practically overwriting it.

So does that mean that the Mask of Possibilities can pretty much alter the past, even in a minute way? Well, not really, if you consider my explanation. Now, as you said, the number of alternate realities in BIONICLE is infinite, as every single decision ever made by any being would result in the separation of one initial dimension into at least two more. So we could assume that there is a good few alternate dimensions that are incredibly similar to the prime reality, but differ in some minor way. So what Nikila's mask would do is not overwrite an event in the past in order to bring about a desired event in the present, but rather simply relocate the position of the prime reality into one of the adjacent realities, where that event is more or less likely to happen. The new reality would have to be different in a very specific way, and the mask would automatically establish the best option, unbeknownst to its bearer, who would only see the outcome.

I was thinking of PMing the BSS with this, but I decided to let you read it directly. I'd love to hear what you think. Posted Image


No, it can't. The mask's power was based off the Scarlet Witch's hex power, circa 1960s-1980s. So, for example, someone fires a gun at you, it alters the probability of the bullet missing you and hitting the villain's control panel from 1000-1 to 1-1. It does not affect the past events leading up the bullet being fired.


And just in case anyone's interested, this is something else I suggested to the BSS a while ago:
 

The Amana Volo Sphere is a type of powerful globe that can restore one's health and boost their strength. The Volo Lutu Launcher is a type of catapult that can thrust anyone over large obstacles. Now, my first idea is to have these two meanings for the word "volo":

  • boost
  • transfer
You'll see that if you replace the word with either of its theoretical synonyms, it will make perfect sense as to the purpose of each object/device. The Amana Volo Sphere can boost one's strength, i.e. transfer energy to their being. In turn, the Volo Lutu Launcher can boost/thrust someone upward, or in other words transfer them from one location to another.

Now, if we assume that "volo" means these things, then let's look at the word "amana". If an Amana Volo sphere can restore one's power, then there's only a few logical definitions for the word, which in this case are contextual synonyms:
  • energy
  • strength
  • power
Now there's a certain unusual Kanohi mask that's only been featured in BIONICLE: The Game as a power-up the Mask of Elemental Energy. It's never been included in the story so far because of its odd power, and has remained unnamed. But if we assume that the aforementioned meanings are accurate, then we've got a splendid name for the mask Kanohi Amana. It's simple, it's logical and sounds perfectly BIONICLE-like.

On a side note, let's look at Vorahk and his corresponding Kraata Vo. If we assume that "vo" is derived from "volo", then we have a great explanation for the Rahkshi/Kraatas power of hunger. It can drain its oponents energy, i.e. transfer their energy to itself, boosting its own power.


I look forward to hearing what you think. Posted Image
