7. Desistant

The term Desistant has been used in this work to refer to species believed to stop dangerous dissipation of energy. For example, one could be played out by illness or exertion. Transcendental journeys can trigger an oozing out of one’s life force or cause an inordinate expense of it. In any case, regardless of the circumstances, such losses must be stopped before recovery can be enjoyed or everyday life restored.
