## Manipulating Psi-Energy into Abilities

### Definitions

Nerve-Cluster - a particular set of nerves controlling certain physical actions and also certain psionic energy flows.
Spectrum - a progressive flow of psionic abilities from either with an aspect; or a progressive flow of abilities that all steam from the same nerve cluster, but are from different aspects
Affinity - ones ability or cluster of abilities that they are best at, usually a "natural" talent towards certain abilities
Abilities - These are the individual things that psionic energy can influence or perceive.
Aspects - These are the large groups that are related by what can be effected.
Areas - These are the smaller groups that are more closely related then Aspects.
Sub-Areas - These are the smaller groups that are more closely related then Areas.
