This would be a perfect example of the "backfire effect" when evidence is provided that clearly refutes an idea yet the proponent(s) of the idea ignores it then argues for the idea even more despite knowing it has been disproven. The conversation regarding port injection molding should have been over after this post yet it continues as if actual facts are meaningless.

Let me say the same thing in a different way:
When you take granite, for example, and crush it up to make your slurry, however you want either by machine or magic, you have fundamentally changed the structure of the rock. Structurally it is no longer what it was, it is now something else different than its natural composition. To reconstitute this rock, i.e. make the slurry, you need to add a binding agent to make it stick back together again meaning that now you must introduce a component that was not originally part of the natural rock thereby not only changing it's structure yet again, but its elemental composition as well. Meaning as Archae said it is no longer "granite" or whatever rock you started with, but something else.

This is quarried Aswan granite:


It is the same structural and physical composition at the quarry as it is the in the column or block.



If you crush this rock to make a slurry then add something to it to make it stick back together it does not magically harden into exactly the same thing it was before indistinguishable from the natural rock it started as with no trace whatsoever of it ever being crushed or of the binder. This should be common sense to anyone and the end of the port injection conversation. How this could be is not a matter of one's imagination or lack thereof or some magical as-yet-hitherto-unknown-technology, but the simple physics of matter. But look at what follows-blah blah blah blah with some even making diagrams as to how it would be done as if, again, facts are meaningless.
