The Misha Campaign (322-1121)
Misha in Sparkly Pink
Misha is not in control of his body, which is floating
in space in an asteroid belt. He's not in direct control, that is --
he can consciously ask himself to do things, but he's constantly aware that
he's asking and getting a response, rather than just doing it.
For a while he just orients himself. He can see
all around him, behind him too, and can "see" much more than just sight.
He's seeing gravitational forces, compositions of asteroids, spectra
of luminous objects, and so on. He feels all the forces acting on him,
and can turn his attention to his internal health. For example, his
liver is perfectly red, putting out energy well below its maximum capacity.
He has the ability to ask for more detail, to ask for
himself to change trajectory, to do anything he wants. He has to ask
for everything indirectly, of course, but he "knows" he can do these things.
He has three weapons at his disposal -- something he points with his
finger, something he belches -- or some sensation like that, and something
he throws at a point from his hand. He quickly assigns them to laser,
missiles, and the Third Weapon.
Misha decides he wants to fire the laser into empty space.
He asks his arm to point into empty space and fire. It does that,
and he hears the thought, "Nothing there."
Interesting. He drops out of sparkly pink to discuss
