The Schome Strange Force repels two objects to a distance of 0.01 apart (though only physical prims are affected by it, as always). However, Topper is the one who has done the experiments on it so I do not wish to detract from his limelight.

It isn't for anything. It just is. However, in the context of SL as a designed world, the SSF would probably be useful in stopping prims from intersecting each other. You may be aware that physical prims tend to move at the slightest provocation and if a nudge caused the physical to randomly move into the space occupied by a supporting prim, it would instantly fall through the entire supporting prim (quantum tunelling on a large scale, me thinks... ;)). In other words, floors would be kind of useless. lol

This is actually observable - place a non-physical platform in the air and put a physical prim through it (make it somewhere else, make it Physical, then place it through the platform, or else you can't make it physical :P) and it'll fall straight through :P

I think maybe a new name might be though of. It migt not be strange if we do the proper experiments

The Schome Completely Ordinary Fundamental Force?
You may SCOFF - but I prefer the strangeness.

And much effort did it cost me too. I lost count of the number of times my pendulum plumetted to the floor through inprecise positioning.  :-\
