Oh yeah, that does make sense. So anytime someone touches something in a holodeck it is replicated and becomes real matter but it is just a projection before interacting with it? Is that what you're saying?

I see your point there NCC-73515, but the interaction was already explained in the apisode where the docter gives Neelix those holographic lungs. You know the one wen he hits Paris, and Paris has to hit him back.

It has to do with magnetics ur something, don't remember that well, can anyone help?

I do think you have a point in the lippstick however, that is a glitch, also the episode where wesley throws a snowball and it hits Picard outside the holodeck.

Exactly, Livingston.
arutha, I think the problem in that case was the anatomical connection with the circulatory and nervous systems. But Paris didn't hit him, as far as I remember it was the Vidiians who stole his lungs...
TNG technical handbook, page 170 in the german version: the holodeck uses two main subsystems (holographic imaging and matter conversion).

Shame the Vidans could't have hung onto those lungs a little longer.....LOL.

I thought the doctor could decide whether things passed through him or not. It was some sort of "particle density" thing. Holo characters could be programed to take an impact just like a normal body.. or they could be programmed so things passed through them (I have no clue why that would be useful)....the doctor sort of "self programmed" on the fly...

So basically he could tell the force field to allow the pad to pass through it, since he's networked to the computer system?

Yes.....Eliza has read so much fan fic she has a theory for everything....

Livingston, no, he could adjust his use of space so HE passed through the forcefield.

But how 'bout the pad he was holding? Still not clear on that. Is it, holographic, like him or does he somehow manipulate the force field to allow it to pass through?
