Imprinting

Postby chanilover » 20 Oct 2009 15:37

In Heretics Lucilla is looking at herself in the mirror:

In her education, Lucilla had seen ancient statues from the First Times, little stone figures of human females with wide hips and sagging breasts that assured abundance for a suckling infant. At will, Lucilla could produce a youthful simulation of that ancient form.


Does this mean the BG prana bindu control was so complete that Lucilla could make her tits sag at will? What do you think this means?

No, she just made them so big and plump that they simply had to sag with the weight.

I just finished reading Heretics and I remember the line but I also remember not really blinking at it, for some reason I figured they could control many parts of their body's functions, why not weight?

Most people can control their weight if they really want to, most people also can't control going through the McD drive in

Well, controlling your weight and shifting it around on your body at will are two very different things.

I don't think the "youthful simulation" would have sagging tits, but instead she'd be more voluptuous. I don't know if FH meant she could plump her boobs up with her mind or if she could just make herself seem sexier and more fertile, maybe using her BG mind tricks. :)
As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Hypatia approaches one.

I don't know what frank meant to give them in the way of Super Powers, but I've always thought of this as the ability to tap into something so ancient and primal in our natures as to be irresistible. Sexyness beyond mere fad.

I think Frank was saying Lucilla's tits saged because they were big, but not because she was old. He liked writing about them:

Schwangyu had seen the holos of this Lucilla but the woman in the flesh was more
disconcerting. An Imprinter of the best training, no doubt of it. Blue-in-blue
eyes uncorrected by any lens gave Lucilla a piercing expression that went with
her long oval face. With the hood of her black aba robe thrown back as it was
now, brown hair was revealed, drawn into a tight barette and then cascading down
her back. Not even the stiffest robe could completely hide Lucilla's ample
breasts.
She was from a genetic line famous for its motherly nature and she
already had borne three children for the Sisterhood, two by the same sire. Yes
-- a brown-haired charmer with full breasts and a motherly disposition.

I'm a "small" breasts man myself, but doesn't Salma fit the description of Lucilla rather accurately?

Those things are bigger than my first apartment. :shock: I wonder if they're real :think:

I'd call her hair black, though.

They are real for real. The hair is a tad black indeed. Let's see if we can find another Lucilla. I like that kind of online safaris

WTF? Did the Dutch think they could keep this a secret?

Yeah, she's got my vote for Lucilla... and anything else.

Okay, I'll play the sucker then.

We're talking about the smoking hot girlie in the photo above, right? Just want to make sure we're on the same page.

If so ... what exactly are these "bad qualities"? I realize that not everyone is attracted to the same thing, but, seriously: "bad qualities"? I'm not seeing it. All I see is one fine mamma-jamma.
