In the four years since adoption of the rail system throughout major Poria city-centres, the proliferation of our this new form of central transportation continues into all cities throughout Parallelium. This new method of transportation eliminates the need for private ownership of transportation in addition to reducing foot traffic across cities, and lowers the time necessary for commute between residences and the workplace. The perpendicular arrangement of the rail tracks ensures that no Poria needs to board more than two trains to travel to their destination. Such improvement on travel time allows for longer hours in the work environment, longer hours of relaxation, or both. This enhancement of productivity is beneficial not only at the individual level, but a more productive entire species improves the Omneuttian environment.

It is a Poria trait – posited exclusivity – that this seamless replacement of transit methods could happen. It is this replacement of staples in Poria culture that is in turn a staple, the willingness to abandon something that has been part of one’s entire life, perhaps generations and wholly embrace the new paradigm that is strictly Poria in nature. It is from this, that non-Poria would come to a city-centre such as Ohr and see the working rail system stretching across several blocks – a new form of organization that will require the demolition of at minimum the majority of buildings across Parallelium – and believe that this method has been an element of Poria cultures for centuries. It is the sole idea that proliferates across the culture thusly: if a new method is determined to be more efficient in any regard from what currently exists, Poria must embrace the new method with the same vigor as the old for it to actually be more efficient. A half-embrace of a new method will result in sub-projected efficiency, therefor a net loss in efficiency.
