This spell allows a Greater Path mage to experiment with the weave, providing a suitable facsimile within their minds which can be seen and manipulated as the mage needs to facilitate the creation of a new spell. This facsimile, while real to the mage, is not truly real. The mage can cast spells in his head, as if he always had his total possible reservoir of magical energy. There, in his mind, the mage is able to observe the effects of the spell. This way a mage can experiment with the weave and practice casting spells, but most of all it is useful for devising new spells. The spell ceases to function when the mage ceases to concentrate on his meditation. A Greater Path mage cannot devise new spells without the casting of this spell. Before the creation of this spell Greater Path mages were forced to experiment with the real weave, which often resulted in fatal mistakes or horrible magical mutations beyond the mages power to control.
