Convergence

Convergence is an Alarian term that predicates on an individual becoming the best version of oneself across all parallel realities in which that individual exists. Convergence is predominantly employed during the Trial of Paths (first in the Weaver Trials) as a manner of unifying one’s cosmic pathways and choices from across the infinite fabric of the multiverse. It is achieved by defeating your most powerful Alters (four most powerful dimensional yous) under a heightened point of convergence.

While the utility of becoming “the best version of you”, in this reality and the next has never been scientifically documented in the Alarian civilization, the Guild of Weavers insist that defeating the most powerful versions of yourself from across timelines is imperative in one’s right to study Weavership.

The Trial of Paths is usually organized in the Pentahedron under the surveillance of the Guild, and involves a physically-demanding challenge during which one is expected to emerge victorious over their cosmic Alter Egos. For the sake of preserving the integrity of reality, no more than 5 versions of an individual are allowed to exist within the same timeline. Despite debated controversy, Convergence is still considered to be the most accurate predictor of talent and competence in relation to the art of “Weaving into reality”.
