Transdimensional Flux, sometimes called Dimensional Flux, is the state in which Samus finds Aether upon her arrival. The atoms of objects in this state are divided between the dimension in which they exist and a parallel dimension, in this case between Aether and Dark Aether. These objects exist in both worlds simultaneously, but can only be interacted with in one or the other. Manipulating objects in the world in which they can be altered will cause effects in both dimensions. Objects most often encountered in Dimensional Flux are Bomb Slots and Spinners.
Readings of these anomalies when Samus entered the system were the first clue that there was a second dimension on Aether.
- "Planet is unstable due to transdimensional flux. Warfare has devastated a good portion of the world's population. Finally, extreme climate shifts have left most of Aether uninhabitable." —Logbook (Metroid Prime 2: Echoes)
- "Amidst this turmoil, we discovered many anomalies. Spacial disturbances appeared across the land. Objects went into a state of dimensional flux, their atoms divided between Aether and...somewhere else. There was little time to ponder these strange happenings, for we had to deal with the devastation of our lands." —Luminoth Lore (Metroid Prime 2: Echoes)
- "Target is in a state of dimensional flux. Unable to completely scan Spinner target. 50% of its component atoms are in another dimension, or on the surface of Dark Aether." —Scan Data (Metroid Prime 2: Echoes)
