Oh, please. You're right, it's not described as necessity for the change, It
*is* described as *part* of the change. The first part. It is part of every
description of the change. What it doesn't say anywhere is that it can be
done without the first part, or, for that matter that it can be
instantaneous, as you earlier claimed it was.

Because you want to argue? You could argue that the sun is a big light bulb,
But that wouldn't make it so.

I *have* shown the change to take place on the etherial, and the etherial to
be impossible to access from certain places.

What *you* haven't shown is the change to be possible without the access to
the etherial.

In fact, I don't believe you've even made an effort to show *anything*, but
just a desire to argue the point.

Odd, that is *not* what the books say. They distinctly say "etherial".

Of course, if you have a passage, as yet unrevealed, that says otherwise....

Or once the final body is acquired, it doesn't get traded in for another.
That's *all* you've shown: Once a bodu doesn't change, it doesn't change.

No kidding.

Now you're making fun of spelling errors? I guess this isn't a discussion
anymore, now you want to cause problems on the lists.

Sorry, I'm in no mood to play.

Nope, just the etherial, and it is clearly described in all three places that
describe the change, and is part of the change.

There hasn't been? Or you've ignored it?
