When did Zelda become part of the thread?

On second thought, I may have something valuable to contribute to this thread besides my previous "Jesus makes it float" statement.

I once wondered how the water in Terra Tower was continually replenished since it is always falling to the sea below. Well in the room with the 6 massive element crystals, you can actually see water being produced by them and falling below. Then, when the Fused Dragon God/Time Devourer takes off through the tower, they seem to begin to make more water and the water level begins to rise.

So the whole "how does Zeal still have water" question may simply just have the answer - "Magic makes it!".

Which is pretty much saying the same thing as "jesus makes it float".

Probably due to some invention of the Gurus.

Probably similarly to how Magus floats.

Rule of Cool?

Zeal is pretty proficient with spatial gates(and spatial barriers; e.g. energy pyramid, Schala sealing of the time gate in 12000BC, etc.), no? Then why not postulate that Zeal could circulate water between the main island and the surface vis vis spatial gates in the ocean? Perhaps further their islands are floating due to a sort of 'spatial displacement engine'.

So, basically you're kinda saying they're summoning the water up there...?

Well, if they can transfer people from the ground to the floating islands and back thanks to those Sky/Land Bridges, then why not do the same for the water?

I can't believe no one thought of this. Ocean Palace?!?!?! There is a portal that leads back to Zeal Palace! It then trickles into the lake, off the continent, and freezes in the lower atmosphere. It then falls a snow, sleet, or hail.

Maybe no one has thought it since the portal in the Ocean Palace is for entering and leaving the building, not the transport of water.

The island of Zeal has grass growing on it.

Grass gets you high.

Ah, but that depends on the type of grass. The plot thickens!

Thus, I stand by my original assertion that:

Jesus makes it float.

Occam's Razor, bitches.

It is Zeality, which neutralized the Gravity, made the island float.
