flash porn... not in the forseable future - my skills are currently not at a level where I'd want to spend time making something like that
as per the ethical issue.... hehe - oh I've waited so long for someone to ask something like this! weeeee!
*does happy dance*
- notice the green box in the bottom left corner... (early version of a datalink)
besides, the next story arc will cover the many ways a Psionick can die and ressurect again, or not, in very gruesome detail... but I can tell you this much:
For a Psionick, then reality is a choice - not a set ruleset of facts and laws of physics. They can twist reality to their will.
Secondly, then there's "The Pact" - something that'll be covered early on in the next story arc...
but I've already said this here:
But to actually answer your question:
Amongst Psionicks there are two kinds of death - physical and permanent
physical is when their bodies just die and their souls are released... they can do this themselves even by releasing the soul anchor.
permanent is when they choose to move on. Why they choose it can be anything - but as also demonstrated then someone else can come in and blow away the reaper who comes for the Psionicks who call for it.
as per the ethical implications of this... well... Hana got royally fucked up - and Psionicks in general do not get hurt! - It was because the Doyen turned out to be a rogue user, one who can ignore or corrupt their SCECs... and as mentioned earlier in the comic then the SCEC, the SubConcious Ethical Calculus, is what continualy adjusts the minds of the Psionick so that 'bad things dont happen too often or in any irreperable way'.
Also, Alex figured that he could persuade Hana from not moving on if he could just aliviate her pain...
