A Formless Construct
As psions we have at our complete disposal an energy that follows our intent whatever it may be, this energy is psi. By our intent and actualization we give psi structure, form, and charge it such that it will carry out actions, and we call this a construct. We often believe this form and structure to be essential to the function of the construct however it will often only work against the inherent advantages of the energy. This article seeks to propose the advantages of a construct that requires no physically defined form.
Suggested Practice/Skill set
This article is intended for a skilled practitioner of psionics, if any sections are found to be lacking in explanation it is up to the practitioner to acquire the information themselves (this may also be a sign that you are not yet sufficiently skilled enough to use this information). All complexities of construct creation and the nature of psi must be understood with clarity before the practitioner should attempt to use the information within this article.
Before any new information within this article is brought up it is important to go over the basic information that verifies it.
Psi, the energy, is something that we as conscious souls can control. Psi can affect the physical domain but the physical domain has no effect on psi. Psi is not something we can necessarily 'touch' but it can generate physical force. Psi interacts with the physical though is not bound by physical barriers such as distance or time, thus it can be anywhere and everywhere at any time. Through intent and actualization we as conscious souls can use psi to facilitate change in the physical domain, furthermore through the same process we can make it so that the energy will operate in accordance with our intent at later times or whenever we need it to, and this is a construct in it most basic form.
This last statement is of importance because it shows that a construct is, in the simplest terms, intent carried out by psi over time. At no point in time has it ever been stated that the physical definitions of a construct are essential to the constructs functioning, and in fact the opposite is the truth. Psi, charged with intent and proper expectation, will carry out intent as psi alone, unshaped and undefined.
The Conceptual Domain
The conceptual domain holds all information, everything, and this cannot be overstated. More specifically, and more related to this article, the conceptual domain holds all information regarding every possible construct a person (any person) could create (please see http://forums.vsociety.net/index.php?topic=13859.0
Understanding the Construct
If the above section is true it can be said that in many cases of construct formation it is as if we are trying to pass water through a tube and our logic is to freeze it into chunks first, removing the water of it's true advantage. We have control of an energy not restricted by time or space and we choose to remove these great advantages when we give a construct physical form. This is fairly understandable though, for many years of our lives previous to understanding psionics we have only ever interpreted our world in terms of physicality, but to truly excel in psionics and as souls we must come to understand our world in terms of the conceptual and by the perspective of the soul.
To make a worthwhile construct we have to first define what it is we want of the construct, fortunately this is very easily and simply defined. The main function of the construct that we want is for the construct to follow the user's intent and become whatever it needs to become to achieve that intent. As much as this seems like a complicated thing if we understand the nature of psi, the soul, and the conceptual domain it is actually a very easy thing.
We've become used to creating constructs for very specific purposes because we think that it's much easier to manage and maintain such a construct or maybe because we've never known another way. If instead of making individual constructs for individual purposes you could make a construct that was intuitive, highly adaptable, self-modifying, and self-sufficient (such that it requires no help or maintenance) you could use that construct for almost any situation or purpose because it would always change itself to fit your needs.
If we understand the nature of psi, we understand that the construct explained above can be created because we have an energy that carries out our most basic and complex intent regardless of time and requires no shape. Furthermore, we also know all possible constructs that can or would be used for any specific situation exist as easy to acquire information within the conceptual domain (again, see above referenced article) and can be used and created at any time.
Creating a Formless Construct
Like creating any construct the process of forming the intent, gathering the energy, and actualization are necessary in forming this construct, after that point if done properly you should basically never have to alter the construct or willingly change it at any point, the construct will do that on its own.
Hopefully to some people the above section is enough to allow them to understand what is needed to create a functioning formless construct. On the other hand this is not so often the case and in the author's experience it can be easier when creating this type of construct to charge the construct with a more step-by-step intent. The construct not having parts or pieces will instead have simple directions to follow in all situations. The directions are:
1) Understand user's intent
2) Consult conceptual information in reference to what is necessary to best achieve the users intent
3) Become what is necessary to best achieve the user's intent and function to do so
4) Repeat from step 1
The instructions above are of course entirely up to the definition of the user, and if they can find a better way they are encouraged to use it.
As with any other construct you want to form the intent (a construct that does what is stated above), gather the necessary energy, and actualize your intent fully expecting the construct will carry out your intent perfectly at any time you use it.
If made properly we have a construct with no physical definition that cyclically carries out its instructions such that it is always working to assist the user in whatever they intend to do. Knowing too that the psi that comprises the construct is not limited by shape, time, or space it is also clear that the construct is very much capable of becoming whatever is necessary to assist the user in their intent as it references all possible methods of assistance within the conceptual domain. If the construct is capable of referencing the conceptual domain to acquire information this means that at an instant it can become any possible construct that you could possibly need. Whether it be a generator, amplifier, or information processing construct, the construct can become any one of these things, or even something that does all these things at once, near instantaneously, and it will always be with you and changing accordingly every step of the way.
When you are using this construct keep in your mind that you are in fact 'using the construct', as this will create the expectation that the construct is working with you and this will assist in it's functioning. Pay no mind to fact that the construct is changing and modifying itself as you use it, because as much as the construct can change itself into something to help you it can at the same time change into something that seamlessly supplies information on the necessary actions to properly use the construct at the time of its use.
As always, practice and the expectation of success are the best way to achieve the greatest possible outcome.
Considerations for Use
This construct is helpful in almost any situation. When you need a generator the construct can become a generator, if you need a construct to amplify you intent it can become one. Based on the constructs programming what the construct won't do is consistently work on a single goal or intent because the construct is always changing to fit your own intent. When you need a construct that will continually do a specific action (processing information for example) it is best to use a single well defined construct for that. If you wish to preform psionic action where you have no time to properly form a construct or perhaps you are about to preform an exercise where you will need a series of constructs one after the other the construct written about in this article is much more advantageous to use as it can quickly become whatever is needed at the time.
As much as psionics is about overcoming limits we do not control it is also about identifying self-imposed limits and removing them from our practice and our minds.
