Re: Mad World
The Magicians is great. Highly recommend. Seasons 1&2 are on Netflix.

I've been binging on something a bit more lighthearted for the last few weeks. It's cheesy, but also really exciting. Watching people do their absolute best and then fail or succeed, and everything between, is quite entertaining. Plus they are all super unique and creative people.

Good stuff..

Re: Mad World
Have you considered your relationship with mortality?

Seer it is the same reason that you can’t get away from awther. He’s not trying to smother you...but the energetic fields connects you both because of our entanglement.

Have you not felt me despite our distance?
Like celestial bodies the orbit of our respect consciousnesses cannot be stopped. While it is your free will to estrange or ignore me, we are in each others respective fields. We influence each other because we share something beyond us both.

How do you feel about that? About me?
 Quoting: Light of my Little Left Eye


I think about death far too often and I am well aware of that, about myself. Even I know it's too much. The why, could be because I am really struggling with the concept of an Afterlife.

I ignored you because I saw you giving a message, that was the opposite of what I said. After that, I didn't think I could trust you at all. But then I also didn't know for sure, if my message was relayed to you, correctly, so I pulled back completely from everyone.


You know I have a hard time knowing for sure where it is coming from. Happens when everyone tells you 'It's them'.

Just when I think I figure it out, it gets all convoluted again. That's part of why I just want it to end.


It hasn't though. Last few day been..crazy. Quieter today.

Re: Mad World
Saidin

Saidin (pronounced: sah-ih-DEEN) is the male half of the One Power. It is described as a raging torrent of the Power which must be subdued and dominated by a strong-willed channeler in order to be controlled.

Men feel women holding the Source as a tingling on their skin, like goosebumps. They can also sense when another man is holding the Power though not in the way women do: a man would describe it as a feeling of awe and menace, with nothing truly visible, and not easily pinpointed to a particular location or person.

Saidin is described as a rough torrent that resists any attempts to control it. To employ it requires strict control, forcing it to do what you want. Male channellers universally refer to gaining the Power as "seizing" it and weaving saidin as "wielding" it like a weapon.

This essential difference in the nature of the two halves of the Power means that a woman cannot teach a man to channel, and vice versa.

One Power

"The One Power comes from the True Source, the driving force of creation, the force the Creator made to turn the Wheel of Time. Saidin, the male half of the True Source, and saidar, the female half, work against each other, and at the same time together to provide that force.

Saidin is fouled by the touch of the Dark One, like water with a thin slick of rancid oil floating on top. The water is still pure, but it cannot be touched without touching the foulness. Only saidar is still safe to be used...
The True Source cannot be used up, any more than the river can be used up by the wheel of the mill. The Source is the river; the Aes Sedai, the waterwheel."
-Moiraine Damodred

The One Power emanates from the True Source, which is made up of two complementary parts: saidin, the male half, and saidar, the female half. People who can wield it are called channelers.

 Quoting: Seer777


cont..

Not everyone has the ability to "channel," or access, the One Power. Most have none at all, and some only have the ability to be taught, to one degree or another. But a few channelers are born with "the spark," an innate inclination that will lead them to touch the Source whether they wish to or not.

These untrained channelers, sometimes referred to as wilders often die without ever gaining control over their innate ability by a strange sickness; some research indicates the mortality rate for untrained channelers is 75% or more. Often, however the survival comes with a price; wilders may not even know they are using the One Power to do things. They just know that sometimes, "things happen" when they want them badly enough.

Re: Mad World

 Quoting: Seer777


Channelers are not born equal; some are stronger in the Power and can handle more of it than others. Men and women who can channel are different in this respect and in many others, regarding the One Power. For example, male channellers can on average channel more of the Power than female channelers, similar to the gendered difference in physical strength.

Channelers must always be careful, as the One Power is dangerous. Besides providing an addictive stimulating effect, channelers who draw too much of the Power into themselves can kill themselves or render themselves brain-dead. If they are lucky--relatively speaking--they will only burn the ability to channel out of themselves, leaving them unable to channel ever again.

Re: Mad World
Both men and women with the spark come to a point of crisis in which they are in severe mortal danger, assuming they've had no training. The One Power is extremely dangerous to the untrained. Many women who die under mysterious circumstances in their late teenage years are actually wilders who have failed to cope with their abilities.

The women who survive invariably develop mental blocks that prevent channeling in the absence of certain conditions; two known blocks required severe anger or thoughts about men before their sufferers could allow themselves to channel. Another is the ability to channel only with one's eyes shut, which can be inconvenient, because a channeler must be able to see flows in order to weave them. Serious and sometimes drastic counseling is often required to overcome blocking.

Re: Mad World
Male channelers as a whole usually are much stronger in the amount of power that they can hold than female channelers of comparable level (in much the same way men are generally stronger in their muscles than women) but the female can compensate this lack of brute force with far more dexterity. So in all the things that only rough power is not needed, the strongest female channelers can accomplish with the One Power, exactly the same as the strongest male.

An advantage of the female is also that only a woman can start the link for a circle, while men cannot link to form a circle of multiple channelers working together without a woman's aid. Women are more dexterous in the actual weaving of the flows, and have the advantage of linking, but cannot increase a circle beyond thirteen without the inclusion of men.

When a male channeler and a female channeler work together they are much stronger than many of the same gender, it is said that this is caused by saidin and saidar resonating, which means that the two Powers are working better together.

Re: Mad World
Wilders

A wilder is a collective term for women who have learned to channel the One Power on their own, without formal education or particular skill. It can be a derogatory term, especially when used by certain Aes Sedai who went to the White Tower to train, although at other times it is simply used as a descriptor. The term has not been used for men in living memory, as all men who can channel have been doomed to go insane from the taint on saidin, obviating any need for a formal instruction program, until recently.

Women who can channel fall into two categories; women who can be taught, and a far smaller group of women with the spark who will start to touch the saidar instinctively, whether they want to or not. Those of the latter group who survive this learning curve, approximately one in four, are called "wilders" if they do not seek out training once they discover what is happening.
