A majority of hospital leaders worry about this, too. Some hospital administrators addressed this concern in a recent survey conducted by the American College of Emergency Physicians, and most named overcrowding as one of their top five management concerns.
I think the story is all about trying to get through the wall. Technology breaks a barrier to get people to a new physics, and often the only interaction the people in the story have with the tech and the physics is in constructing a breach through that wall.
The author gets to define the rules of the door. Or you have to find the magic wormhole before you go somewhere. How many stories are there about wormhole maps, or lost planets that are returned to the Network after Isolation?
Snwwhite is a fairy tale, Pinocchio and Narnia are fantasy novels for young boys. I think that this distinction, that is very basic, is lost to many. David J Zimny The other Le Guin wall is in Earthsea Various large rings have walls to keep the air from coming out.
He describes a phenomenon that he names calendrical heresy.
In his universe, presumably far in our future, calendars are used to maintain doctrines and discipline. People who for whatever reason do not agree with the government must flee to an empire which is governed by another calendar, or are forced to adapt or be murdered.
Some devices, aircraft, weapons, stop functioning when they travel from one calendar to another. It almost seems in his description that natural laws change when they traverse from one calendar to another.
Of course he plays with the old SF concept in which technology is like magic if it is developed far enough. In the few performances of this work by the band and in later performances by Roger Watersan actual wall was constructed on stage to separate the audience from the performers.
For some reasons, audiences found the placement of that final block to be as much of an ecstatic moment as they found its eventual demolition at the end of the show. Alan Parker later filmed this album, with iconic animations from Gerald Scarfe. The food bowl and the water jug are hastily filled, the door is locked, the eyes disappear.
I will be good! The Christian Book of Revelation devotes most of a whole chapter 21 to describing a celestial and post-apocalyptic version of the city of Jerusalem, and in particular detail its size, its construction materials, the number of gates on each wall, and so on.
The description is exceedingly precise, and seems intended to provoke a sense not of isolation, but of strength and majesty. A massive and mystical wall of solid ice is a central plot element in George R. On walls, how about I have No Mouth and Must Scream, in which the characters are trapped and trying to escape.
The Furies and Medusa prevent the passage of Dante and Virgil, until a powerful angel from Heaven sweeps in like Mercury to open the gate with a wand, while chastising those monsters.
Inferno IX The wall separates the upper levels of torment for the various sins of self-indulgence or incontinence, from the deeper sins of violence and fraud.
The angel is not named, is brief and rather detached as if he has more important things to do, and does not speak to Virgil or Dante. The story was obviously good enough to stick in my mind, even though the book is long gone from my collection. In fact, the novel is full of such walls and that initial one turns out not to be what it appears.
The wall has only one side. The wall is not material, to be sure. But it has an abyss where a world ends, where the wall would go.
The Galouye novel this was inspired by was also done as World on a Wire, in my queue at Filmstruck. It seems he can read minds and speak to animals … MisterMr He wrote two boox:Another installment in my series of attempts to source tropes and themes in SF and fantasy. Help me find examples of what I’m looking for!
A very standard fantasy trope is ‘there are doors’. In “On Fairy Stories” Tolkien implies why this must be.

I started as an intern, young with no experience. My news director was wise enough, however, to send me to cover the innocuous stories of the day, which meant I reported on a lot of county 4-H fairs.

Expanding the capacity of the ED to handle more patients is often identified as the obvious solution. But experts say this misses the underlying factors responsible for the logjam: inadequate systems to manage the flow of patients throughout the hospital.
