An absolutely amazing adventure. Accurate characterisations and an original plot. I was on the edge of my seat, wanting to know how it would all end.
One or two spelling errors:
Chapter 3: '"Yes, you're wearing scrubs with pink with kitties on them,"
Chapter 7: 'and I'm afraid he as some weird aspirations of grandeur'
Chapter 8: '"Give me a minute… or two," Rodney responded.f'
I'm so curious to know what they ended up doing with the device. I assume they placed it in their 'Do not disturb' storage lab for Ancient tech P
All in all, a fantastic story. You are incredibly gifted.

I'm having trouble with the feedback form, so I apologize if this is a duplicate review. I loved the story and the author notes, all except the last author note. The end of the final chapter was so beautiful that I hated to suddenly get jarred out of the mood by an abrupt author note. Other than that, you did a great job in keeping me enthralled with the action adventure as well as the vision changes and their consequences. Godzilla! Ha!

Sorry for not reviewing individual chapters but I prefer to read a story right the way through and review on that.
This story was brilliant and flowed really well. I loved the idea of Rodney losing his sight to gain a different one.
Well done on writing a brilliant piece of fiction

The creatures and bugs aren't real...it's the Ancient experiment!

Oh, yes I'm sure they'll be okay, since they're going to Atlantis. If they ever make it there! Good story!

Your comments at the end of your chapters crack me up! :)

Yeah, I kind of suspected Rodney would have a sensitivity of sorts for Ancient technology when he collapsed at the Gate (the first time), but at that point I expected it to be something mostly adverse. What you really made it out to be, though, wow! (Thank God I've seen 'Tron'; that description was very helpful. )
From very early on I wondered why he wasn't presented with life signs too, at the very least those of other ATA gene carriers. I mean, wouldn't it have been kinda awkward for the Ancient scientists to work if they kept bumping into each other? What with the illusions, it would have been unlikely they had sighted helpers, I think, so how did they know where their fellow scientists were at any given moment? That was a bit stumping.
I also thought Ronon was acting pretty damn stupid. After they'd confirmed there really *was* a bog beast, and especially with the rumor that other planets had them too, he should have realized that where there's one, there'll be more. Hello, biology? Like, where did he think that one came from? (And Ronon *did* grow up in an industrialized society.)
Somebody should have rebuked him, really, for a slate of mistakes. Rodney, I can forgive for not thinking of that because he was distracted by more pressing matters …
And I believe Woolsey was rightfully concerned about the eventual outcome. So yeah, Ronon might be able to live with those Wraith tricks, but what about other populations in the galaxy who haven't figured it out and can now once again be easily corralled that way? I really hope Sheppard plans to amend that mistake; otherwise he would seem really quite thoughtless.
For a while, I've been a big fan of Seamus Zelazny Harper in the series 'Andromeda', and I've always wondered how Meredith Rodney McKay would feel given a similar opportunity to 'communicate' more directly with the city systems (be they sentient or not, preferably the latter …) – which is why I loved 'Tao of Rodney', and this story plays right into that avenue. Thanks!
PS: Why did Rodney get knocked unconscious at the end and for how long to warrant an IV and Zelenka declaring his boss "out of commission"?

A very interesting story. I enjoyed reading it very much. Especially the end, which I felt was more than perfect. Honestly, fantastic job! Lots & lots of stars!
