    So I was thinking. Constructs can attain sentience with very advanced programming, what if it was possible to link a form made of light via Photokinesi to the physical construct in a way that it can function as a physical body for it? Light has mass (It literally pushes you some, but not enough to feel.) so it could be packed so dense that you can touch it. So if the light could be linked to the construct, could it be used as a body for it?

    And to those of you who recognize this, yes, I got this idea from Steven Universe (This is pretty much what the Gems are.)

    I mean you can link a construct to a physical item making it a physical construct and practically its body if that's what you mean?

    No, I mean a physical construct as in something you imbued with energy programmed to be sentient. Then you would link the imbued item to the body made of light. Though I guess you could just make a normal construct to link to it. Saves the trouble of keeping up with the item.

    The concept of the Crystal gems is a sentient stone that that creates a mobile physical form and acts like a normal human. Not sure energy can get to that point here.

    I wonder if a species like (not exactly) the crystal gems exist in the etheric.

    I know that it can't get that advanced, but I'm sure that if it's possible to make a sentient construct, and making the body of absurdly dense light possible through PhotoK, that they can be linked in some way and have the construct control it.

    They do

    Making a sentient construct is fairly easy but it's almost robotic unless you imbue it with something similar to emotions but then that depends on beliefs on what makes something alive.

    Not sure their name but I have seen similar but do far it extends into a type of starseed for the individual I've seen.

    Interesting. Though I guess really my main question is, do you think it would be possible to 1, make the body of dense light with PhotoK, and 2, link it to the construct for it to use as an actual body?

    Personally I don't yet but I won't necessarily dismiss the possibility arising.

    Honestly, this doesn't really seem too hard of a feat. All I'd need is someone really good with PhotoK that's either near me or can project to me. I can probably do the programming on my own. Actually that brings up a new thought. How about instead of linking construct to the body, the body itself was imbued with the programmed energy, technically giving it a pseudo-ES if done properly, along with the sentience. That pretty much makes it as close to human as I can think of.

    And I'd bet with imbueing the body with the energy to make it have a technical ES and have it be it's own mind, it could also more efficiently keep the photons intact, as the energy would would be more connected than a linked construct to the body.

    when i think about constructs+body i think on a golem, but if I'm understanding properly this construct will be on the biolocative plane, and in that case i think it will have the same outcome if you did it with normal energy or with PhotoK
