Oclaim's Razor(or however it's spelled) Anyone? Is it that hard to think that Epoch is powered by Zealian magic? omg.

Ockham's Razor is the name... And Zealian Magic dosen't seem right to me... If the Epoch is powered by dreams, it would just make it the ultimate vehicle for Crono's group.

well i remember something about gravity to be able to bend time and space, prehaps the movement aspects of it both lateraly and time wise are handeled by generating gravational forces strong enough to litteraly tear a hole in the fabric of time and space.

Quote from: Symmetry
I going to suggest Mr. Fusion and the Fluxcapacitor, but...

I knew someone would mention this eventually.  Also, did the movie ever explain how a Flux Capacitor even works?

As to what powers it...hmmm...maybe it siphons energy off the pilot.  Since Crono has electricity as an element (or heaven, whatever), it would work as a suitable power source.

As I said, Robo said that he senced that the Epoch was being powered by the total sum of all spirit power that had ever existed.

Just to clarify that, the original Japanese stated:

Robo: Energy that I have never seen!
   Just as though it has amplified human
   willpower to a terrifying extent....!!

Which is more of a thematic statment than saying it is fueled by human willpower.

Or possibly a energy we cannot understand. The guy was very smart, he probably knew much more than any of us.

Yeah, I've gotta go with Occam's Razor. A wizard did it. That's my explanation of it.
