Thanks for your comments.
[quote=“The Cusp, post:3, topic:2412”]There are three factors which determine the strength of a psychic link. Repetition, emotional reinforcement, and novelty.
With child hood locations, you spend a lot of time there, that’s repetition. You can still forge strong connections in the short term to places where you experience intense emotions, or make a strong connection to an area which has something which really captures your attention.
What do the magicians here think happened and why?
The intense novelty of the situation focused his attention to a level he couldn’t ordinarily attain on his own. That excess attention spilled over from the initial focus of death into neighboring constructs, creating his ghosts.
To which phenomenon are you exactly referring here? The incident was very brief and not repeated. What is meant by "excess attention spilled over?"
does this mean that the ghosts were in his mundane imagination and not real entities?
Is it possible to interpret what you are saying as,
because of the death presence or shock of the deaths,
a gateway was opened which J.M. stumbled into, and, because of his intense focus or attention, he was captured into the vortex of this opened gateway, and thus was permanently “Scarred” for lack of a better term. ?
