Let me think.... What do you guys think would happen? Be aware that portals can move in Portal 2... I thought if the surface a portal was on moved, the portal stays in the same place. When the surface a portal is on is completely gone from the portal's origina Cars crashes

righto, i can already see a problem with this and possibly the solution

the first problem i see is that portals are the same size, this is simply because other wise the object coming out of the smaller portal will become, well smaller. now the point of this is if you put a portal inside a box close it, then try to put the box through the other portal, well you may notice that the box with be bigger that the yellow portal

as to what would happen if said experiment was carried out lets look at that.

now the most important thing to remember with portals is that "matter is consistent"

what this simply means is that what you put through one end will come out the other with the same amount of atoms or matter or however you wish to think of it . So with that in mind we can somewhat assume that the box will be crushed or compressed to a degree if forced but the amount of space it takes up will be consistent

now the statement "matter is consistent" is just head cannon but this also answers a few other questions like "throw one end of the rope through a portal and tie the end's, have i made a rope that goes to infinity?" visually yes, but you still have the same about of rope that you have started with.

TL;DR **** you read it. but seriously if anyone has objections to this go ahead it's open to criticize and discuss.

You can't put a portal on a moving surface. It would cease to exist and ruin the experiment. I'm so much fun at parties.

I think it would either bounce back or push the door?

How do you put a portal into a box and that box into a portal of same size?
portal<box<portal of same size

The box and portals are longer than they are wide.

The box would come out of the blue portal, hit its own inside and stop.
If you don't close it, it'll hit the wall of the orange portal.

What happens with the blue portal is that it'll come out of itself rotated by 90 degrees along the x and y axis. The corner of it that enters the orange portal again will simply fractalize down to infinitesimal scale.

Guys guys guys... portals can be put on moving platforms, just not accelerating platforms. So thats why portals dissapear in portal one when the platforms move, but stay in portal two like in the gas room

This is why paradoxes don't exist.

Even if the portal wasn't removed when the surface was moving it wont fit trhu the portal, the box would hit on it's own opening because it's closed.

When the portals would come in contact with each other they would immediately disintegrate.

It would be coming out of the box a little piece at a time, so it would shoot out of the portal inside the box as it went into the orange portal. So basically it would end up a little to the right.

When two portals touch, one of them fizzles.

the box would come out of the blue portal, however it won't get copied, becasue everything that appears has previously disappeared, then, the box in 2 seperate parts would get pushed into the portal again breaking box and portal into smaller and smaller pieces, until it is just a bunch of messed up matter, but here is where it gets interesting:when u pull it back out everything will retrun from being completly jumbled up portal/box mixture to an orderly bxo with a portal

Thats it. Thats how we get into the fourth dimension.

At first, the box will open, because it's pushed by the box itself, then you'd get a sort of mirroring effect very similar to the pic, only that you'd have the blue portal bent to 90 degrees.
Then, at the end, you'd have the same box, coming from itself, only rotated differently. The box, or parts of it might get mashed though.
