Everything is relative, I feel.
I happen to agree entirly with your take of the warp. To an extent it mirrors my own very closely.
So would you say the warp is an extension of mind, or an integral part. Is a persons brain like a micro eye of terror with warp/real space overlap.
Um... perhaps an extension of, but such divisions are problematic in the sense that mortal minds evolved with The Warp/Empyrean existing as one of the existing pressures of Existence (with the risk of sounding rather circular... ). The evolution of life and then intelligence within the Materium created the Empyream (although not pure warp/potential, as that is an integral part of existnce from the gorund up).
So to ask whether intelligence and emotion created the Empyrean, or whether the Empyrean created the mind is a circular question (not that I think you're asking that necessarily). I think that in the 40K context they evolved side by side in a completely symbiotic way.
So perhaps I'm trying to say that I view the Empyrean as both an existing part and extension of the mind (or biological intelligence) in the 40K imagery. The mind is the key to 'opening' up the Empyrean and it is also the key to manipulating the Empyrean.
Whether the mind is a kind of naturally regulated EoT is a good question. I would have to think about it more...
Anyone else have any suggestions?
So as man phisically alters the world around him then so would his shadow self alter the world in which it dwells.
I think, that's a handy analogy. Although 'shadow self' would have to be defined to a certain degree. Is it personal intelligence mixed with personal potential (warp)?
