A: All roles receive the same measure of input, but only the artisan is capable of processing and using it. While all will hear the conversation, see the dog, observe the neighbour, and notice the speck of lint on the speaker’s coat, only the artisan will actually be able to act upon all of them. For, while the other roles are focused upon the conversation, the artisan retains enough distancing to focus on all at the same moment. If an artisan is unresponsive to the speaker, it is because they have shifted their attentions elsewhere, however, it does not mean that they are unaware of the speaker having quieted. While scholars may type one thing while conversing with others, the artisan would do those as well as observe the televised news reports, and plan their upcoming party or conceive their next artwork.
The warrior on the other hand, would be hard pressed to maintain the conversation if they were attempting to type and would therefore, need to select which activity they would focus on.
All sentient beings have, what we call, layers or levels of awareness/input, for the energies of your aura are constantly “feeding” you data, much as a computer may constantly be receiving input. However, not all of the input will “reach” the physical mind, for certain roles are “better” at filtering than are others. The artisan can be aware of and responsive to all, while the warrior responds only to that input or stimulus most predominant. While the roles receive “data” from all their energy levels, most will focus on only one or two.
We see each layer of the aura as being one level/channel of input. Which level is primary depends on the individual and not on the role, for those with emotional centering may tend to shift primary focus to those stimulants/events that encourage emotionalism, whether it be the colour of the sky or the residual emotions found in the room/house. Whereas, one with a moving center may tend to focus on motions, movements, or those actions that create movement. Others will focus first on sound, while others on thoughts and ideas. Each individual selects for themselves their primary focus of input, secondary, third, etc., but it is the role that will influence which and how many of them are recognized by the physical mind.
Those of artisan are capable of receiving and understanding information through those means of tactile senses, vision, audio, as well as those sensations perceived through cording the energies and from verbalizations. But just because they can register and process these inputs of information, does not make it easy for them to also respond to others, for in accepting and processing all the input, do they focus inward. To respond must they focus outward. All can accept input just as artisans can, but not all can accept and process it all at once. Most can accept input from one primary and one secondary source, while those of artisan accept one primary and four secondary source. For a king, do they do best when accepting and processing only one primary source, and no secondary sources. That this is also true of warriors is understood. However, priests and scholars are continually processing those inputs filtered through the energy contacts, and can therefore accept and process a primary and a secondary as well. Servers, being more outwardly focused, do best with no more than two, but primarily with one, while sages also do best with no more than two, for their need for attention leaves them again more focused outward rather than inward, and so a minimum of input is accepted and able to be processed.
If artisans would be focused outward, as in the midst of a conversation, are they still capable of accepting and processing input from at least three other sources, for always do they perceive that which is around them, even when focused on a person or task. Their focus appears scattered, always, yet many times is it merely that they are capable of focusing on many aspects of life at once. For they may speak with you yet still notice and store away the colours and rhythms of the butterfly that hovers near, and the sounds of surf that pounds in the distance, or the feel of the breeze on their bare arms. So do you see, that while others also experience these same things, the artisan is actually creating images and imprints and “memories” in great detail while seemingly completely involved within the conversation. While others might passingly note the nice day, they do not gather together the individual pieces and create images or imprint memories. For they are focused on the conversation and not the butterfly, and not the surf.
