The Laws of Patterning
First Law: KNOW the effect you intend to create.
Second Law: What applies to one applies to all.
Third Law: Create newly each effect.
Fourth Law: Positive determinism is necessary to achieve the intended effect.
Fifth Law: A wielder is limited by what he can envision.
Sixth Law: Energy responds to positive thought. Corollary: Patterning is most effective at the level of thought.
Seventh Law: A wielder succeeds in the alteration of energy, space and time in inverse proportion to his agreement with the material universe.
Eighth Law: All patterns are the result of effort channeled along a specific vector; thus, patterns are the product of force.
Ninth Law: Do not counter force with force; channel it.
Tenth Law: Energy cannot be unmade, merely transformed.
Eleventh Law: All things are formed of patterns.
Twelfth Law: A pattern need not be perfect, but the wielder’s concept of it must be.
Thirteenth Law: Intention monitors solidity, solidity monitors structure.
Fourteenth Law: Exact duplicating forces, in opposition, will nullify structure.
Fifteenth Law: Talismans magnify intent.
Sixteenth Law: Talismans form the bridge of cause and effect.
Seventeenth Law: The use of talismans must focus force without limiting scope.
