Picture this: You are an unquestionably evil bad guy (or good guy, it doesn't matter, but I think bad guy is more likely), and you have an enemy that you want destroyed so he can never return to the MU. Unfortunately, killing him doesn't work, since he will just come back, and you've already killed him once, so disintegrating him doesn't work either. You just want this fighting to be over, and this person just stay dead. You kill yourself so you are on the Red Star, where the Sendback teleporter is, right? Right? Now you are faced with a problem. If you break the teleporter, you will never be able to get back to the MU where your enemy is. You might have a messenger you can send back to kill him, but then you're stuck on the Red Star with your enemy for time and eternity. Fun. And maybe you could time-delay said destruction with a bomb...but this is the Red Star. Where are you going to get materials to build a bomb? Unlikely. But it's unlikely that you will ever get this choice anyway. If you die, you're probably just revived and sent back without ever seeing the RS. Disoriented, you are unlikely to find the teleporter. It's not like the Kestora are going to give you directions. * * * With this in mind, I theorize that the sendback teleporters are in the MU somewhere, possible near where the sendup teleporters are. This is because it is unlikely that a MU inhabitant would be on the RS long enough to deal with that teleporter or know where it is, and also because, even if they somehow could figure it out, the paradox above would get them in trouble. Unless they had teleportation powers, and then the disorientation/not knowing thing would still apply. (And if that machinery was up there and some guy had sat down and broken it, wouldn't the Kestora have connected the dots instead of going insane? ) By contrast, in the MU most beings are in command of their mental faculties and many have teleporter-breaking powers at their disposal. If the above scenario has any plausibility, said being would have to find the sendback teleporter(s) (which could be complicated if they are scattered throughout the MU) and break every single one. Or like have a virus to do it. (I mean if there is a Mata Nui sleep virus, there could be a teleporter-smash one. Much more plausible than someone finding out where the RS is and teleporting there pre-Mata Nui.) I also think it is implusible that the Kestora broke the teleporter - otherwise wouldn't they know? I don't think they were programmed by the GBs to be insane - I think the sendback breakage drove them nuts. So I just thought of this and started typing, so this one probably has more holes than swiss cheese. Feel free to point out any possibilities I missed that render this idea more insane than the Kestora.
