The oneness never stops dreaming is a pretty common thought, or stops dreaming every 1000 kalpa or so;
if you want to use that system.
Of course, this is all beyond our paygrade, so to speak.
Sometimes fun to discuss, generally of little practical value.
If you want to examine old 'fairy' lore, you'll find that some humans were highly desirable in 'fairy eyes' and others were not.
But that story line seems to be on hold. We are now playing out the post-human techno dystopia.
In terms of my own CE-5 event, there most certainly was both a 'fairie' and a 'shade of the dead' present. The whole 'BTUFO' aspect had the 'fairie' quite amused. I mean, I had wanted to see a "Black Triangle UFO" so I did.. for about 15 seconds of the 2 minutes it lasted. Then the 'fairie' shape shifted into all sorts of other shapes. He even took some requests. Oh, it was a laugh a minute for it. The shade of the dead 'angry dwarf' was a total ass..but that's to be expected.
It seems everyone taps it a little bit, but a 'practitioner' could build up a 'reservoir'. This reservoir is generally called 'a person's soul' in some quarters, so if a Fae 'spirited away' the person's 'soul', to tap their magic, or to take if to 'their realm' as they were enamored with it, that's the scenario you are discussing. Now innocents and babies were also beloved targets, now some are just born with a reservoir unexpectedly, but in any case, the innocence would be viewed as delicious.
At its base, an analog signal is a continuous signal in which one time-varying quantity (such as voltage, pressure, etc.) represents another time-based variable. In other words, one variable is an analog of the other. The result is that analog systems allow for a theoretically infinite number of values to be represented: it can achieve any value within the parameters governing the system.
To my thinking, the 'boundary of self' is the important definition. How to say? The difference between a ghost haunting a house and possession? We remain separate in the haunting and both the ghost and person remain pure. In possession the ghost crosses our boundary of self, and our purity becomes corrupt.
