    Noon Class 7: Primal Ability Practice

    Teacher: Winged Wolf
    Date: 9/24/2002

    Session Start: Tue Sep 24 12:03:16 2002
    [12:03] WingedWolf> All right. Today, we’re going to start by discussing Primal ability.
    [12:04] WingedWolf> This is the ability to sense instincts, primitive emotions, and some innate traits.
    [12:04] WingedWolf> The output function is to affect instincts and primitive emotions in others.
    [12:05] WingedWolf> The energy format is a field, so this is normally a short-range ability.
    [12:05] WingedWolf> I am going to have you practice this, although I realize it might be more difficult than the emotion exercise.
    [12:05] WingedWolf> So….psion and Recoil, Lemmy and Michael will be the partners today.
    [12:06] psionwannabe> okay
    [12:06] Michael3_> k
    [12:07] WingedWolf> You’re going to link to your partner, using a PM if you wish, then let me know when you are ready.
    [12:07] WingedWolf> One partner will send an intinct or primitive emotion, as best they can conjure it, and the other will attempt to receive it, and state what they think it is here in the room.
    [12:07] _Recoil_> Ok ready
    [12:08] _Recoil_> Will you give me some examples of instincts?
    [12:08] WingedWolf> For the first set, Recoil and Lemmy, you send first.
    [12:08] WingedWolf> Yes, I will
    [12:08] WingedWolf> Please wait until I ask for questions though.
    [12:10] WingedWolf> Some examples of the things you can send or receive with Primal ability include fight/flight response, aggression, dominance, territoriality, parental instincts, and sex drive. Please don’t send the last one, keep this PG13 .
    [12:10] WingedWolf> Any questions?
    [12:10] Lemmy> hmm… yes
    [12:10] WingedWolf> ask.
    [12:10] Lemmy> how to send territoriality?
    [12:11] Lemmy> or parental instincs?
    [12:11] WingedWolf> Think of a situation in which you would feel territorial, and send your feelings.
    [12:11] WingedWolf> The same.
    [12:11] Lemmy> ok
    [12:11] WingedWolf> For example, if some strange guy is puttering around in your yard.
    [12:12] Lemmy>
    [12:12] WingedWolf> Any other questions?
    [12:12] * Lemmy nope
    [12:13] WingedWolf> Ok.
    [12:13] WingedWolf> Mike, Psion?
    [12:14] psionwannabe> ready
    [12:15] WingedWolf> If you’re all set, then go ahead and begin–again, Recoil and Lemmy are sending first. Charge your skin, and direct energy from it down the link with your sending.
    [12:15] WingedWolf> The receiver, charge your skin, and pay attention to what you feel.
    [12:15] Michael3_> k
    [12:17] _Recoil_> I’ve been sending btw
    [12:17] Lemmy> k Michael3_ I am sending
    [12:18] psionwannabe> i sense fear/confusion
    [12:19] WingedWolf> As with the last sets, tell your partner “yes” or “no”, then when the set is complete, you can tell them what you sent.
    [12:19] Michael3_> sort of like anger
    [12:20] Lemmy> yes it was agression
    [12:21] WingedWolf> You’ll do 3 sendings each, just as with the last classes. ;)
    [12:21] Lemmy> sending next
    [12:21] psionwannabe> _Recoil_ ?
    [12:23] psionwannabe> hm
    [12:24] WingedWolf> Maybe his connection died.
    [12:24] WingedWolf> Yep.
    [12:24] WingedWolf> There’s no ping response.
    [12:24] WingedWolf> Well, Mike and Lemmy continue on, we’ll see if he comes back.
    [12:25] psionwannabe> okay
    [12:25] Michael3_> k
    [12:25] Lemmy> ok
    [12:26] Michael3_> no
    [12:26] Michael3_> opps
    [12:28] Lemmy> I still sending secound
    [12:30] WingedWolf> If you really can’t get anything, you can say so. ;)
    [12:30] * Michael3_ doesn’t understand all the words we’ve got to guess
    [12:31] WingedWolf> You’re not guessing words, you’re describing what you feel.
    [12:31] * Michael3_ feels like smashing his head against the wall
    [12:31] Michael3_> i know ur not
    [12:31] Michael3_> but you’ve got to describe what u receive with those words
    [12:31] WingedWolf> You can use whatever words you feel appropriate.
    [12:31] Michael3_> and i don’t know what those words mean only aggression
    [12:32] Michael3_> well them lemmy saying that you can only use those u gave
    [12:32] WingedWolf> No, that’s not true.
    [12:32] Michael3_> k
    [12:32] * Lemmy understood so
    [12:32] WingedWolf> I only gave you some examples.
    [12:33] * Lemmy can’t distingush between instincts and emotions
    [12:33] WingedWolf> Lemmy, instincts are responses fueled by emotions, or response that cause emotions–generally very primitive emotions.
    [12:34] Lemmy> so it’s like empathy?
    [12:34] WingedWolf> When you feel angry when a stranger comes onto your property, it’s because the territorial instinct causes you to feel that way.
    [12:34] WingedWolf> Emotion ability generally deals with complex emotions.
    [12:37] WingedWolf> You want to call it a loss and try again the day after tomorrow?
    [12:37] psionwannabe> yes!
    [12:38] WingedWolf> Ok….we’ll try again next time. ;)
    Session Start: Tue Oct 01 12:36:19 2002
    [12:36] WingedWolf> All right, do both of you remember discussing primal ability last time?
    [12:36] PsyFactor> some, yes
    [12:37] * PsyFactor isn’t sure if he was here last time you actualy held a class
    [12:37] _Recoil_> Yeah I do
    [12:37] WingedWolf> Then, since we didn’t do it in that last class that got cut off, that’s what we’ll start with now.
    [12:38] WingedWolf> You guys link, and let me know when you are ready.
    [12:38] WingedWolf> You’ll be sending a set of 3 primal impressions.
    [12:42] WingedWolf> It’s more logical to put App and Recoil together.
    [12:43] PsyFactor> k
    [12:43] WingedWolf> Then you can work with me.
    [12:43] PsyFactor> works for me
    [12:43] WingedWolf> I think I’m going to have to take this from the top, anyhow.
    [12:43] PsyFactor> k
    [12:43] _Recoil_> Why logical?
    [12:44] WingedWolf> Primal ability is the ability to send and receive primitive emotions and instincts.
    [12:44] _Recoil_> hehe
    [12:44] WingedWolf> Because you are both EU, and we are in the US?
    [12:44] _Recoil_> Ok
    [12:45] WingedWolf> Now, please hold questions until I call for them, no comments, etc etc, usual rules.
    [12:45] WingedWolf> You’re going to be practicing sending and receiving primal impressions with a partner.
    [12:46] WingedWolf> Some examples include dominance, territoriality, fight/flight response, that sort of thing. Yes, sex drive is in there, but please don’t send that one, we have minors here.
    [12:47] WingedWolf> Primal seems to be associated with the field format, produced by the nerves in the skin and hands, so you will need to direct energy from your field down the link to send this over a distance.
    [12:47] WingedWolf> Set up a link to your partner, and let me know when you are ready.
    [12:48] _Recoil_> Ready
    [12:48] Apprntc> ready
    [12:49] WingedWolf> All right…Recoil, you send first, psy, you send first.
    [12:49] WingedWolf> You let your partner know when you are sending, and then they state their impressions here in the channel.
    [12:49] PsyFactor> ready for me to send?
    [12:49] WingedWolf> Yes.
    [12:49] Apprntc> im rdy
    [12:49] _Recoil_> Will you give me a few examples again of Primal Impressions again please?
    [12:50] WingedWolf> Dominance, territoriality, fight/flight reaction–the associated emotions are things like rage and fear.
    [12:50] WingedWolf> parental instincts, etc and so on.
    [12:50] PsyFactor> did you get what I sent? Don’t think I sent it well
    [12:50] _Recoil_> ok sure
    [12:51] WingedWolf> Are there any other questions, first?
    [12:51] _Recoil_> ok Sending
    [12:51] _Recoil_> No
    [12:51] Apprntc> somert intense
    [12:51] Apprntc> anger?
    [12:52] _Recoil_> Yup
    [12:52] PsyFactor> ww: okay for me to send?
    [12:52] WingedWolf> Psy, I didn’t get anything. Try the next one.
    [12:52] PsyFactor> k
    [12:52] Apprntc> try another recoil
    [12:52] WingedWolf> Fear?
    [12:52] PsyFactor> sending
    [12:52] _Recoil_> Sending
    [12:53] * PsyFactor hadn’t sent yet
    [12:53] PsyFactor> was having to get the instinct all set up
    [12:53] PsyFactor> heh
    [12:53] Apprntc> keep sending that one recoil
    [12:53] WingedWolf> Was it fear?
    [12:53] PsyFactor> nope
    [12:53] WingedWolf> Now it seems like anger though.
    [12:53] PsyFactor> was trying to send parental instinct, as I have picked it up
    [12:53] WingedWolf> Oh.
    [12:53] Apprntc> hmmm, a lot less intense, fear?
    [12:53] * PsyFactor thinks you were getting that from recoil’s leaks, as with the empathy
    [12:54] WingedWolf> could be.
    [12:54] WingedWolf> Just move on to the next one.
    [12:54] PsyFactor> k
    [12:54] PsyFactor> sending
    [12:54] _Recoil_> I can’t really say what that was either – It was the opposite of anger
    [12:54] WingedWolf> dominance?
    [12:54] Apprntc> ye i got that
    [12:54] PsyFactor> no :/
    [12:54] * PsyFactor was sending flight or fight
    [12:55] WingedWolf> way off.
    [12:55] PsyFactor> heh
    [12:55] Apprntc> seemed like u were sending some kind of retreating message
    [12:55] * PsyFactor wonders if he’s actually linked with app or something…
    [12:55] PsyFactor> lol
    [12:55] _Recoil_> Sending
    [12:55] WingedWolf> Remember, these aren’t to be complex emotions, but very basic, primitive reactions.
    [12:55] Apprntc> dominance
    [12:55] _Recoil_> Yeah well done
    [12:56] WingedWolf> Psy, I did pick up the edge of the parental instinct one, I just think I second guessed myself, I didn’t expect you to send that.
    [12:56] PsyFactor> ah
    [12:56] _Recoil_> You picked them all up quickly
    [12:56] PsyFactor> that’s something
    [12:56] Apprntc> ye, stuff like this is my forte
    [12:56] * PsyFactor isn’t surprised you didn’t expect it :D
    [12:56] WingedWolf> Ok, now the other person is going to send….
    [12:56] Apprntc> ow this is where i get shite
    [12:56] * WingedWolf feels she is losing track of what’s going on.
    [12:56] Apprntc> now
    [12:57] PsyFactor> whenever you’re ready, ww
    [12:57] Apprntc> u rdy recoil?
    [12:57] WingedWolf> Ok….sending.
    [12:57] * _Recoil_ is crap at recieving
    [12:57] PsyFactor> dominance
    [12:57] _Recoil_> Yah I’m ready
    [12:57] WingedWolf> No.
    [12:57] PsyFactor> territoriality, then?
    [12:57] PsyFactor> seemed like a more aggressive thing
    [12:58] WingedWolf> No, no use guessing, moving to the next thing.
    [12:58] Apprntc> sending
    [12:58] PsyFactor> k
    [12:58] PsyFactor> ready then
    [12:58] _Recoil_> You sending App?
    [12:58] _Recoil_> ok
    [12:58] WingedWolf> sending.
    [12:58] _Recoil_> It’s something close to anger but not quite anger
    [12:59] PsyFactor> can’t seem to get anything off of this one
    [12:59] _Recoil_> It’s like ‘pissed off’
    [12:59] WingedWolf> Nothing now?
    [12:59] Apprntc> keep receiving , ill try make it more clear
    [12:59] PsyFactor> maybe some fear…might be fight or fligh
    [12:59] PsyFactor> err, flight
    [12:59] WingedWolf> No
    [13:00] PsyFactor> k
    [13:00] WingedWolf> setting up next one.
    [13:00] PsyFactor> ready whenever you are
    [13:00] _Recoil_> Fight or flight App?
    [13:00] WingedWolf> Sending.
    [13:01] Apprntc> it was dominance, but it should have made it more clearer
    [13:01] PsyFactor> territorial?
    [13:01] WingedWolf> No
    [13:01] Apprntc> ok trying anothert
    [13:01] Apprntc> u rdy recoil
    [13:01] PsyFactor> I just don’t get this ability :D
    [13:01] _Recoil_> I was thinking dominance but wasn’t sure
    [13:01] _Recoil_> Go again
    [13:01] Apprntc> ok sending
    [13:01] _Recoil_> Yeah app
    [13:01] WingedWolf> You weren’t absolutely terrible at sending, Psy, though needs work.
    [13:02] PsyFactor> definitely needs work
    [13:02] WingedWolf> The set I sent was fight/flight, territorialty, parental
    [13:02] _Recoil_> hmm is it something like fear?
    [13:02] PsyFactor> k
    [13:02] Apprntc> nope
    [13:03] _Recoil_> I dunno then
    [13:03] Apprntc> it was anger,rage
    [13:04] * PsyFactor notes the only thing receiving on this did was increase his heart rate :D
    [13:04] _Recoil_> I can’t really concentrate I keep watching football
    [13:04] Apprntc> hehehe
    [13:04] _Recoil_> ok

    [13:05] Apprntc> flight,fear
    [13:06] _Recoil_> ok
    [13:06] Apprntc> this is quite tiring
    [13:06] Apprntc> im feel drained already

    [13:06] Apprntc> ye
    [13:07] _Recoil_> Yeha
    [13:07] WingedWolf> Ok. :)
    [13:07] WingedWolf> That took longer than anticipated….
    [13:07] WingedWolf> Would you prefer to start constructs now, or wait until next time?
    [13:08] Apprntc> next time
    [13:09] WingedWolf> Ok…next time, then.
