She continues: "We project an image... much more efficient than painting. Three dimensions of space, plus Time, plus the 5th
dimension where the other 4 are curved by gravimetric distortion. That's where all the fun happens. We can make the whole mountain feel like it's flat, or even tilting the other way, like a funnel-shaped valley."
Morobu interrupts at this. "But all the water would flow uphill, to the summit —" (waving his arm across the nearby bay, still as oddly tilted as ever) "— for that matter, why isn't this sea rushing towards us right now?" imagebot
swivels her head to glance at the bay, then back at her creator. "I don't feel it, but apparently humans and land animals do, and some plants... and maybe those gulls. That's what I'm investigating right now."
Morobu glances up at the sky, looking for the gull that spiraled up and away, as imagebot
"Circularly-polarized gravity affects the way you detect tilt but without making the water flow uphill. Modulated properly, it even prevents exhaustion in your muscles from climbing."
Morobu and bot are silent for a few minutes as Morobu considers the implications. Waves lap softly near the articulated treads that serve as imagebot
's feet. A sea-bird squawks in the distance.

I'll join everyone else in congratulating @SilentTimer

Larry the Cucumber is funny, thanks @BlueCrab

After doing that for a while, the Third Commandment came to be, and all of a sudden it was bright again; this surprisingly had quite a spiritual impact. It really felt like enlightenment!
Treeish ... then I'll pretend I planned it that way

is something by @patzer
from NP371 that is vaguely similar (or would be if you take the 1st

's chart of noun usage from NP373
