    12:44 moeder is the dutch word for mother. Maybe the devs are dutch and forgot to change the name. But this definitely confirms it's the mother faking her death.

    If your mass is added to the portal when you enter, and removed from the other when you come out the other side, could that mean that instead of teleporting, you're actually being completely erased and absorbed by one portal, and a completely identical clone of yourself (at the moment before you were erased) is created and launched out of the second portal?

    Moeder means mother in dutch and since the ad was about her mother it can be what they meant.

    I think a historical theory show would be amazing. I remember in 2007 my first day of World History in college and my professor wrote "Columbus is a lie" on the board. Learning about the truth of Columbus genuinely blew my mind. (I know it's common knowledge now but I'm from small town conservative Kentucky where you question nothing.) After that finding more and more falsehoods in History has always been so interesting to me.
