So, hm, correct me if I'm wrong. (If there is no comment, I will guess I am completely right.)
Since it's too long to put in in words and I'm not a native english speaker, I made a quick drawing to explain it. Is this how it is?

Imo, Sakasama is a masterpiece,It has been long since the last time a film made me suffer from vertigo and think as deeply as this one at the same time.
P.S.: I know the scheme sucks, I don't draw but edit.

Yeah I would say this is how it is :D
But I think i didn't grasp the whole mechanic of this anti-gravity accident. Is the gravity on the hole surface of the planet inverted and only this particular place wtih the crashed buildings ("real surface") was spared? Maybe you understood it.

The incident divides the matter in nomal matter and 'inverted matter', probably in a random distribution. All the inverted matter on the surface floats to the sky, except for what the humans manage to save.
In the Aigan underworld only inverted matter and inverted humans exist, so they think original matter is inverted matter. How they brought all that inverted matter and created the underworld is something we can not know but considering they managed to send half of the surface out of the earth, they sure HAD an incredible technollogy.

Another point some people seem not to understand is why age and Patema sometimes float and other times fall. Actually, they always fall the Aigan (inverted) way because Age's inverted weight is slightly higher than Patemas original weight. Still, the difference is so small their weight probably is less than 5 INVERTED kilos. That means Age's physical force is enough to make them fly like a stone you just throw away (with a much higher air resistance). However, there is one time Patema has some ORIGINAL weight attached to her, so they fall the original way (they float according to the inverted).

I think I understand everything now. 0: Wow.

ah okay, now I understand, thank you :)
They definitly had an incedible technolgy, considering that they researched antigravity, something we can't even imagine with our current science.

ah don't worry, I complety got that part, but thanks :D
