crystal athame brings up an excellent point when he mentions a "feeling" u can't describe, a philosopher (can't remember who at the moment) once said something along the lines of "words are the boundries of my world, my vocabulary defines the way i think" some of the thoughts and feelings we can't explain are simply signals created by our brain that our limited languages are incapable of describing, it brings to mind a line from a song: "language just happened, it was never planned and it's inadequate to describe where i am" since most people think in either words or pictures our conscious mind is limited by either our vocabulary or our scope of imagination, thus more complex signals from our subconscious can be misinterpreted as somethign "supernatural" because we don't possess the means to process them in our memory banks

I had a breef thought which is annother way psionics might extend your life.
If when a person dies you add the fragments of their soul onto your own or you
vamp the actual life energy from living things wouldn't you have more life energy
which causes your body to follow suit and repair it's self faster?

Different topic if emotions can be imprinted onto a persons energy and be transfered
through that energy who says thoughts and memorys can't be imprented onto your aura
which will continue as a construct copy of you when you die. Just something to think about.

That whole concept is going off of the assumption that a soul even exists. and I don't think that flooding your body with a different type of energy will prolong your life, because if it could, there would be people who are already immortal. There are more complex things than just energy that contribute to death and regeneration of your cellular biology. You'd have to go deep into your DNA and reprogram it...if that is even possible. You'd have to have an indepth understanding of how your body works and how your genetics work.

I have only herd about stealing souls to extend your life in fantasy movies and books.
It's still an interesting thought.

Hence the reason this is in the Fluff section. Fantasy may have some basis in fact, but not enough to merit even being considered as a technique. The only thing that really works is trial and error, and learning from people who have experienced. Speaking about things that you've only heard about from fantasy and sci-fi is the easiest way to get ridiculed in the guild...I've seen it happen. Some of the senior members can be a bit overly sarcastic when they reply...or just plain blunt.

Such is the process of learning luckily I'm learning how to say things in such a way as
to not be pounded when I'm wrong.

This is not a good way to get verbally flogged.

I find that I would get thrashed far worse if I stated that as fact rather than stating
a fictional source.

Probably. I can definitely see it happening.

Talking Just sayin...

The first construct is good. I think about it lots... yes I do, like minds and all that, lol.

The second one - if you have no where to go when you kick it could turn into number three - IF you stop yourself going to your next identity... (of course I am guessing)

The third one is quite possible, however, the result is this one: If you snatch a body while someone is in it (and it is the only way to do it because you cannot inhabit a dead body), and you stay there for keeps (it is not possible to do that part) - you can entrap yourself in a dual personality - dual minded - because you cannot kick the other consciousness out - they were the born-in soul. The persona you inhabit will be relegated to a life of mental instability and both are doomed. Evil or not, Karma is not to be messed with.

Thankfully, co-habitation can only occur for a brief time, if your body dies while you are gone you will disengage from the visitation, and your consciousness will cease to be. If the inhabitant dies while you are visiting, you are shut out of the unfamiliar body and returned rather forcefully into your own.

Construct #4
I would rather die and take my chances on my next go round... yes I expect to do another run at it, so immortality is mine already! (I have already put my request in for hazel eyes)
