The Secondary Cerebral Cortex of the Psion
The use of this construct requires the understanding of many of the principles contained within the Dynamic Psi style of psionic practice. Gathering energy, basic construct dynamics, proper conceptualization, and of course scanning, are all very important skills to have and understand before attempting use of this construct. When these concepts are well understood the construct itself is very easy to produce, but until that point the creator can become bogged down in pointless assumptions and expectations.
Most importantly though, you should always remember that a construct will do exactly what you expect it to when you fully expect it to.
The Purpose of This Construct
When scanning, the information that is gathered by us, as souls, is completely unbiased and un-tampered with. However, because the soul processes physical information in a different way than something bound to the physical domain (the soul being free from the limits of time or mortality), the brain is used to process the information, since it is specifically designed to process information about the physical domain. The brain will process this information and the soul will recollect it, interpret it, and then act on it. When written like this the system would seem fine, but the truth of the matter is that the brain will often add and construe information, leading to improper information and all around bad scanning. We can help alleviate this through serious, time consuming training, but we can never or have not yet been able to alter the brain in such a way as to completely erase this problem.
The purpose of this construct is to completely bypass the use of the brain by creating another one. The construct will process the data acquired by the soul and flawlessly present it back in an easily understandable and untampered way.Conceptualization
The conceptualization of this construct is very simple, just a construct that will do exactly as stated above: to process the data acquired by the soul and flawlessly present it back in an easily understandable and untampered way.
However what is required from the psion using this construct is a small shift in focus to the construct while performing psionic practices, which is also very easy. Remove the focus of information input into the brain (where it would normally go) and put it to the construct itself.
To make this easier you can have it so that the construct itself essentially agitates the soul into keeping its awareness between both the body and it. This can be done by having the construct encourage the soul to “expand” it’s awareness, spatially aware of the surroundings at all times as well as being aware of the immediate future, such that on some level you are constantly aware of things around you and anything that’s about to occur. The broadness of this range can also be increased as skill is gained. Furthermore, if this practice is done continually (as in all day everyday), the user will experience a very rapid increase in scanning ability. This requires no effort on the part of the psion (aside from the original effort of creating the construct), and will in no way hurt them.
This is not only a useful tool to the skilled psion, but also a good training tool for the beginning or intermediate psion (provided they are capable enough to properly conceptualize and create this construct).Expectations
Immediately after creating this construct you should find an improved ability when using it. If not, this is likely due to improper conceptualization. If you properly conceptualized it working well and presenting information easily it should work fine right away. Also, your accuracy should improve, but this goes without saying.Other Considerations
1) The spatial location of a construct can be important when using it, but really only on a conceptual basis. The truth of the matter is that it is completely unimportant where your construct is located spatially, as the energy psi can move through time and space instantaneously without regard for distance, and the soul can also do this with even greater ease.
Because this construct has been called a “second brain” there will be a tendency to want to place it directly above your head. Though there is nothing wrong with this, and it will in no way effect the functioning of the construct, it may however benefit the user to move the spatial location of the construct to somewhere far away from their head. This construct has such a strong pre-existing spatial conceptualization it would be very beneficial to the user to overcome this expectation and help them to evolve as a soul. The connection with the construct will in no way change no matter where it is located spatially, but a greater gap between the body and the construct would help to teach the unimportance of distance to the soul.
2) The idea for this construct could potentially be used for other things, for example, math. The construct is not limited by physical means such as space or time, as such incredibly complex calculations could be done nearly instantaneously.
3) Most importantly this construct proves one thing; that the body and brain that often hold back the soul are only a beginning point, and not entirely necessary.
