Entities from the spiritual realm must incarnate into the mortal world in order to communicate with humanity. This is done through the use of avatars, which are humanoid shells containing the soul of the entity. There are different types of avatars, each with their own characteristics. Purna avatars are full avatars and the strongest type, with the entity fully incarnating it's soul into one body. As the soul of an entity is massive, these forms can be large, measuring about 25ft. Ansha avatars are partial avatars, in which the entity only transfers a smaller version of itself into a body. This could be an aspect of itself that it represents, such as love or rage. As it contains a partial soul, they are generally human sized and can blend in much better with humanity. However, they lack the full powers of their counterparts. The concept of free will grows the further an avatar is removed from its original creator. As Purna avatars are direct manifestations, they are essentially slaves to the will of the entity. Partial avatars are one stepped removed, and are able to have more control of themselves and their actions.
As Purna avatars are huge, they can be cumbersome and difficult to move around in a smaller world. As such, a god in this form can divide its soul further into smaller bodies, each containing a piece of its soul. These bodies are still full avatars, as they contain pieces of the entity's soul rather than just an aspect of them. They operate as a hive mind, remaining in communication with each other and sharing experiences and knowledge. They transfer this information to the actual entity controlling all of them. The entity uses these bodies like a hub, allowing it to be in multiple places as once and rapidly increasing its processing power. However, there is a significant flaw in this. Even though the entity can rapidly process and access previously learned information, it is unable to take in new information. It cannot learn new skills or abilities, or gain any new knowledge of its surroundings. It can still observe and interact, but it is as if the brain of the entity is completely full and has run out of storage space. this is counter-intuitive, as more bodies should be able to increase its capacity for learning rather than speed up its thinking. How can this be the case?
