Sand blocks and water 'blocks' do this kind of thing in Minecraft. I think they do it by having a blockUpdate() function, where the disappearing block passes a message to nearby blocks, which can then act accordingly.

Do you mean someone with a disability? Because a lot of people just want to "fix" them. Behavior modification, you can "get better" all you need is a little help, etc.


Which is quite different from accepting that a person is not able to do something, such as running or seeing color. And the frankly bizarre notion that they must therefore be "better" at something else to appease some sense of fairness is in my opinion an attempt to negate acceptance.


Maybe something that presents the difference between trying to change the person to fit the environment versus changing environments to be more suitable to the person.

It looks like you're proposing rolling a six-sided dice twice, and asking what are the chances that the result is the same on both rolls. The answer to that question is for any given result on the first toss, there is a 1/6 chance the second toss will come up that same number.
