Universe-ending particle superdupercollider here - no pressure at all. Another day at the office... I'm quite enjoying the interplay of the characters around a hastily modified pattern enhancer.
Very interesting allegorical control panel - brute force as a stand-in for mental effort. As a writing trope, so much more effective than trying to convey the same idea with some more cerebral sort of effort (which in television and movies almost always comes across as the actors having really bad constipation. Except in Scanners - where their heads actually explode...)
Nicely done - Thanks! rbs
Author's Response: A lot of mental imagery going on in this story, I suppose. It's fun to write these since essentially, the limit is imagination. And yeah, definitely better than writing another "he was focusing very very hard". (I bet that's a line in a lot of Trek scripts).
