In Response To: Re: Sky's the limit? (General-RADIX)

: Hey now, it's not like LOC's the only one around here who does that.

: *raises a conspicuous eyebrow at own SO interpretation*

: I feel like I should know what's being referenced here, but the only things
: that come to mind when I see the term "Atlantis" (besides the
: thought experiment itself, of course) are Tomb Raider and Stargate, and
: this don't feel like Tomb Raider.

The Atlantis pyramid reference was a description of the walls of the passage. There is a texture in Tomb Raider 1's last 2 levels which is pulsating flesh, and those two levels are filled with lava, hence the comparison to the pyramid's temperature as well as appearance.

Now the rest of the puzzle: Marcus' attempt to translate a terminal message, waiting for the three girls he was on his triple big date with at the Obaida docks, the passage he was in for said big date, and seeing light and sky in the main room above him, reached by climbing electric switches like a ladder.

Finally the message to the CPU in the static wires he intercepted.

Side note: A metallic PDA would only cause a completely different sequence, and not the one that happens. Marcus's firmware and software may not be compatible anyway for that kind of Shinka. Then again, it may not for the actual one anyway.
