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!

At first I was like "Food theory? Sounds weird." But then I realized how interesting that actually is with the new videos you've shown us. Great work!! :)

I guess it will fall because the pole is on something but what it's on is on nothing. So it's basically sitting on a chair that's falling from the sky infinity

I thing that you would make a bomb, if after some point you have so little mass in the top portal it would get consumed and the bottom portal would just become unstable energy that cannot transport anything to the top portal (since it no longer exist) so the energy would probably just made a bomb, and since the portals have their energy from the Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device they can have just the energy inside it.

As entertaining as this video is and top-notch for that. I must inform you that a wormhole does not have anything to do with positive or negative Mass on either end there is no Mass transfer a real Wormhole is an extra dimension entry and exit. It is a window and you circumvent normal space going through some other dimension that doesn't care about normal space and is for all intents and purposes 0 on the mass and dimension scale. Anyone attempting to explain a wormhole as actually manipulating real physical 3D space instead of entering into another dimension is misunderstanding what a wormhole actually would need to be in order to exist. there is no folding of the paper. when you enter a wormhole according to portal physics you generally just slipped from one portal to the next with no other space between there is no travel time. Similarly there is no Wormhole tunnel. When you actually make the portal it's almost as if the normal 3D space is considered to be the same point anywhere. Literal omnipresence as you can teleport to the moon and take the same amount of time to travel there as you would across the room. True 4th Dimension travel has nothing to do with add an extra spatial dimension. We're not going deeper we're going technically shallower. And it's only because we make portal apertures that we have the connection between any two points ignoring pretty space altogether. Having two different types of portals example red and dark blue 41 portal orange and Light Blue for another portal is like using different frequencies to talk on the radio. The lines are connect. And they can even overlap each other in our freedom internal space because there is no actual interaction with 3 dimensional space other than the openings themselves. one question you didn't ask is what if you were to insert the opening of one portal through the opening of another portal? And then also what happens if you collapse the portal that the other portal is passed through. Now that would be obviously breaking the initial portal but could you pass a portal surface through another portal and have it stay as a stable wormhole and the answer is yes. there is no part of the other Wormhole that's actually entering into Wormhole one. and then what if you create an infinite portal with a portal surface constantly falling through another portal or it's on aperture? I'm not saying disappointed in the fact that you don't understand how portals work I'm not expecting anyone to grasp Al portals work so therefore I'm not disappointed you meet my expectations perfectly. Do I wish that you would understand how portals would work and then what would happen given any of the scenarios I've suggested, your mind hasn't begun to blow. for all intents and purposes there is no spatial difference between the opening of portal a and the second opening of portal a across the room on the ceiling or on a panel that is moving through itself. It is as if those two points in space are actually continuous and one in the same. but you look at it conventionally as if adding an extra special Dimension actually adds more physical area of space and that's just not how it works. the whole idea of positive mass or negative mass at the edge of the portals is just theoretical nonsense.

Another Question I've got from this video: If I crush the pole with a hydraulic press, I have to apply force to it, let's say 100N. Now if I crush the pole with the Portals, do I still need to apply 100N of force to the portal, or would the portal itself take care of it? Like I have a portal on a piece of paper and when I drop the paper, the pole gets crushed, or only if I press the paper down with 100N?

Moon rocks are just a *better* (somehow) portal conductor than Earth-based materials. Regular old concrete works too, and was used in the pre-Apollo sections of the Aperture Science facilities.

How about..... world theory Where they theorise everything... literally everything apart from food game and film.... I’ve been thinking about this quite a lot as I’ve been seeing a lot of the things and theorising about them but I’ve been wondering which channel matpat would put it in... so I thought that for a wider range of theories we should have world theory ...

For someone who's really good at maths, I'm really disappointed in you, matpat. When you're going through portals in a loop, there would be no time when you weren't screaming. You would go into one, then instantly go through the other.

I’d like to say that your intro is actually incorrect in terms of physics. If there is a portal above and below you, there is technically infinite space above and below you. Basically there’s equal mass above and below you. You won’t fall. You will be weightless. There won’t be any earth beneath you or above you to pull you up or down. If there are 2 portals parallel to each other and the ground and one is facing the other, anything in between will be completely weightless. This also applies to your pole in this theory, which means the pole will never fall. Finally this also mean your exponential mass problem won’t happen without doing it intentionally.
