One Mind Two Thoughts

Mage Core p.206


Caveat Lector: Book transcription

This spell enables the mage to hold two individual and wholly distinct trains of thought at once, provided neither is intensely physically demanding. He creates parallel processes within his conscious mind. While he cannot do anything that requires intense or exacting physical labor (like fixing a computer and planning out a rousing speech at the same time), one of his two actions can require extremely minimal physical exertion (like planning a speech and typing an editorial for the local paper).

Practice: Compelling
Action: Instant
Duration: Prolonged (one scene)
Aspect: Covert
Cost: None

The willworker can hold two thoughts in mind simultaneously, allowing him to perform two separate extended-action knowledge tasks (as opposed to instant actions or extended tasks involving physical labor) at the same time. He could, for example, research an occult fact while composing a poem, but could not do either while also fixing a car.

Silver Ladder Rote: Thinking for Many
Dice Pool: Wits + Investigation + Mind
Leaders think not only for themselves, but also for those whom they
would keep as vassals. Willworkers of the Silver Ladder use this rote to conduct the many tasks of rule in the limited time usually available to them. Mages of the Mysterium also occasionally use the same rote, especially when considering weighty matters of exceedingly obscure lore.
