Fluff and Flights of Fancy Is it absurd, "out there", vanishingly unlikely, ridiculous, or logically a bit questionable? Here's where it goes!

Very true In fact we don't really know where or what a soul is however to be honest in our line of work thats not all that relevant. In truth souls most likely don't even correspond to physical locations. It does make things easier. Manipulating energy colored by your own souls energy makes your connection with it stronger by extension it makes manipulating energy easier.

There are too many opinions and beliefs about the "soul" and destroying it, so you don't need mine. But, I want to contribute my personal experience...

To make long story sure, I liked a girl, ended up being someone else's girlfriend. So I got very depressed. I wanted to suicide, but I didn't want my family to suffer. Therefore, I tried to delete or "kill" my mind, my personality, myself, but not physically.

I meditated and wished to stop existing. Ironically, my family had to deal with a lot of problems. I stopped sleeping for a week, even with benadryl by vein. I spoked gibberish and acted in unusual ways -my family says-. After a while with strong vitamins and anti-psichotic pills and psychiatric therapy, I returned to normal.

I guess that in the same way as if you scrape your finger, your body regenerates the skin, your body is able to restore yourself, your "soul". Though, if you cut your finger off and not stitch it back, you won't grow a finger. So, I'd say it is possible to destroy "souls".

By your reasoning,it's also possible to create or repair souls as well.

What if we developed mental constructs with psychological and emotional qualities and programmed them to be independent, then merged them not with each other but with whatever you could absorb? I'm not talking about absorving someone's soul, but to be able to use the ever remaining energy of other's lifeforce onto mental constructs one would create with the sole purpose of integration or transmutation.

Nice concept, but what happens when it merges with something hostile and predatory? Maybe could be a poison chalice...

... I know, I'm a pessimist worry wart sometimes.

You think I don't know. Well, maybe you're wrong. Maybe I'm wrong.

But assuming you are always right always puts you in the wrong.

Because assume just makes an ass of u and me.

If you see the classical four elements in the whole world around us, then you'll follow through. I'll suppose you know and continue. That's a fire type of character and as I see it nothing would happen if you threw a little alchemy into it. Merge with fire and air, you'll get either earth or a at least something stable. Fire-Water would change quickly its characters in between poles, however Water-Fire would be way more subtle while still being too rash. If you merged it with Air and Fire took over it would be the same as picturing a fire tornado, but in this case fire with fire works fine so the air would make it more apathethic towards its own instincts, while Air-Fire would bring out fire's passion but not it's rushness towards things. Of course, there's always the way of merging with earth, but Fire-Earth and hostile would not be a good thing. For instance, just as a passionate one is fiery and a cold heart would be water, an observer or equilibrium is air and life or complete systems in themselves are earth. I'd definitely use this kind of scheme both before and after the merging. Plus, I don't recomment doing anything out of inner awareness and self energy manipulation w/o shielding. If you expected something different or a "how-to-deal NOW" my approach would be to project against it everything he did not represent while personally dealing with it. It's Godmode in our own brains, we shouldn't lose our ways even if we imagine it going through the end and we feel it didn't went quite well. I don't believe in hauntings nor in curses, but I do not know how dark energy, the one who makes you feel ill or uncomfortable, moves or behaves, nor white energy - it'd be the same as feeling a person good or bad. we're bound to time and we can't predict the future nor behold the past for we are not omnipresent. If there is doubt then it's not a good answer, but we're fallible as a species and we're easily led to believe things outside of what we feel.

^^^ Nope Nope Nope. Sentient constructs that grow faster and smarter than you do. Been there done that.

It's not remotely fun.

Also what is this empty stream of useless words that you're trying to pass off as alchemy?

It's a description of reality.

I doubt it's that accurate but it might serve as a starting point for the poster to give some kind of take on how things work.

if you want to get precious with the subject, then start handing out lumps of gold to members "cos you can."

Actually that might be a really bad idea... but I think you can understand my point?

^ Actually handing out lumps of gold to students of the art is exactly what I intend to do once I get to that point. The only real problem is all truthful authors insist that you have to have gold to make gold,for the same reason you need a pair of sheep to make a sheep,and apple seeds to grow apples. I estimate that it may cost about $1300 to $2000 in gold to get it to work right. (if you know how to do it) Learning how to do it may cost more unless obscene amounts of luck cause it to work right on the first try.

I used to do this to entities that annoyed me. You shatter them and scatter the pieces after stop the vibrations. But I stopped as it is quite literally a fate worse than death.
