Check out Food Theory! ►
Your Cake Is Really A LIE! ►
What if I told you that there is a puzzle in Portal that NO ONE has been able to solve? It's true. I'm talking about the pole puzzle. If you used Portal's endless fall mechanic and put a pole inside - what happens? This had boggled the minds of Reddit users and fans alike. Today, Loyal Theorists, I aim to solve that so-called "impossible" puzzle - not even GLaDOS!

@The Game Theorists I thought something similar, but I found the videos quite fun and interesting to watch! Personally I think the 4th part should be a book theory, I've recommended this before I belive, but It would be quite interesting

Matpat should really be a teacher. Imagine just walking into your boring old class and he’s there. I’d be the teacher’s pet in no time.

Actually in portal 2 in one of the laser tests a youtuber called ihascupquake had a portal which connected up with a laser and she put another orange portal on a different wall and the laser still went through the portal... So who's right mat pat or the portal 2 game developers?

You should do a meme theory where you analyze the current trends in memes and explain the psychology behind its popularity and/or predict future trends.

How 'bout a channel where you take miscellaneous theories from the community and either debunk them or, if time permits, act further upon them should they be interesting or explain that it was not a theory at all, instead, a question.

So, can't you just, at some point, go the opposite way through the portal to undo the effects on the mass? Like, just swap the positions of the portals, then you can just keep doing that for infinite energy?

Video starts at 3:05. The Pole will not start falling because Gravity would not effect it. Gravity is coming form above, and below it equally because you failed to think with portals. Remember what GlaDos said. "Speedy thing goes in, Speedy thing comes out. What I can't figure out is how you as the player start accelerating when you fall through the portals the same way. The bottom is the top, and the top is the bottom relative to thier positions in spacetime. Gravity should be nullified in the area directly above and below. You should actually just float there. But alas, it's just a stupid game.

If you could enlarge the circumference of the bottom circle like in his connected rod example, what if you combine it with the more finger portal? You could pass the op portal through the bottom portal. Would that like squish the entire universe or something? I can’t even imagine the result...

Update: i wrote this comment before watching full video (around 5th minute) so i did not know MatPat will answer those questions, because for me they look very simple All questions at 4:00 and after are very easy to answer: 1) if you put a pole between portals it will stay on it's place because now it stays on a surface, even though the surface is itself. BUT. If portals erase even smallest part of the floor and/or the ceiling, now pole will fall because it not stays on a surface anymore 2) if you decide to soother both ends togeter, now it will rest for sure, because it is not only stays on itself, but also hanging on itself and pulls itself both up and down up. 3) no, you did not create infinte pole this way, it's length stays the same, if you use interpretation of portals as a space bended to loop to points near each other you actually looped this pole, you just do not see it 4) droping the pole is answer #1 5) about tge ceiling going down... I thought about this once. You actually will make a press with infinite power, because pole will press itself, and when portals put on moving surfaces they move with no problem, so you can suppose they feel no impact on itself... Which means you can make up to infinite pressure this way, depending on speed portals go to each other 6) what will happen if you put something half inside the portal and then decide to change place for one of the portals? Probably this will slice object in half. In our case with pole it will be sliced in the part near ceiling, then drop in lower portal and fly out of orange as we deducted previously it is not infinte Sorry if i made some mistakes, hard to type on mobile without any translator UPD2: wow, i actually answered 2 out of 3 questions right! Yeah, sometimes i forget about gravity exists

I think that the pole may not fall as expected if we consider the portals as connecting spaces in the 3rd dimension through the fourth dimension. Its hard to articulate over text but when the pole passes through the portals it may be forming a kind of donut through the 4th dimension so if it was "falling" from our point of view, it may actually be revolving from the perspective of the fourth dimension. This asks the question, does gravity behave in the 4th dimension in a way that lets it cause a hoop to revolve?

I think that the pole would drop since it’s still experiencing gravity and it’s just connected to eachother, not to anything else, so it would just drop infinitely.
