Science Fiction Power Of Electrokinesis. Help?
09/06/2012 23:27:05 »
Alright, so I've been trying to figure out what is "Theoretically" possible for someone who can control; Electrons, Magnetic Fields, and Electromagnetic Fields.
So far this is what I've compiled, is there anything here that is not possible, or i have missed?
What Can One Do With This Power?
• Electrical Resistance: Helena's so used to electrons it's like a natural reaction, similar to moving your arm or blinking. So it is easy for her to redirect electricity safely through her body however she wishes. This can be accomplished by:
o Redirecting Incoming Electricity into a different direction.
o Ground the electricity to have it harmlessly pass into the ground.
o Absorb the electricity harmlessly and convert it into beneficial energy. (Mitigation, not re-energizing herself)
• Charge Objects: With Electricity, heating them and/or making them conduct electricity.
• Ball Lighting: I need to keep updated to find the actual cause (No one knows how its created)
• Increase Sharpness: By using electricity to create a vibration.
• Paralysis Inducement and/or Jactitation: Jactitation is creating jitters or shakes within the victim.
• Drawing In Electricity From Nature Or Manmade: This is to conserve her own energy. It will not recharge her, but this can mitigate some of the energy cost.
• Electrical Shockwave: This allows her to create and project electrical shock-waves, that have concussive results. (This will also affect her, so she needs to be prepared to cover her ears and eyes.)
• Electrical Beam Emission: Rather than shooting an electric bolt that flickers and loses some of its charge, this beam is much more focused and charged.
• Plasma Manipulation: This can be a double edged sword, Helena can control ionized energy particles and control and manipulate plasma, but she cannot create it out of nothing. Plasma is easily created with electricity, but she cannot just create it. Pyrokinetics can also control the plasma that is created, so there may be a control factor placed in there.
• Technology Manipulation: By manipulating say the 1's and 0's (On And Off) of a computers electrical components Helena can be much quicker than normal humans at getting a computer to do what she wants through just mental understanding of the components. Helena has an above genius level even for Espers of computing ability.
• Sub Quantum Manipulation: This is more or less a level 7 ability and is VERY rarely used by Helena, which she can affect elements bellow and at the quantum level. This has the capability to manipulate Crystal, Elemental Transmutation, Energy Constructs, Flight, Force-Field Generation, Matter Transmutation, Plasma Manipulation, Portal Creation and at its peak Time Manipulation. This also can have a huge draw back if one is not aware of their surrounding area. This is also the most taxing thing Helena can do and requires a long recovery after using it.
• Electric Impulse Manipulation: This is the ability to control impulses of a body, Helena is very limited in this area, while her sister (Vivian) is very adept. She can sense the electrical impulses a body produces and can detect anything that has an impulse, but her control over the body's electrical impulses are limited and she has only sharpened her ability to cause extreme pain through nerve impulsion.
• Electrical Transportation: This is also a level 7 ability where Helena can convert her mass into energy and have it travel to another location. This does however have to be a predetermined place so it can be guessed. It also needs a feed, for instance she can teleport into mid air, but once there she cannot teleport until she touches ground again.
• Electro Stimulation: Helena's body is manipulated at the age of 5 to withstand the strain on her body, but before the surgery she ripped muscle, tore tendons and broke bones when she tried this.
• Enhanced Healing: Helena does heal slightly faster than most people, because she has electricity stimulating her cells so often to accelerate.
• Electronic Communication: Helena can intercept, generate, and interpret electronic, digital, and radio transmissions with her mind. This can be confusing and she might have to hone in on signals and filter out others, but she has the ability.
• Electrical Discharge: Helena in a last resort defense can discharge a large burst of electricity around her body. This causes a lot of heat and can leave Helena breathless and gasping because of the split air molecules turned to O3.
• Nerve Deading: Helena first uses this ability in which when a biokinetic does an experimental surgery and changes the structure of her bodies muscles, nerves, tissue, and bone. This is the reason why she did not go insane from the procedure like all his other subjects. The side effect of this is the relearning of the limb, It took Helena a week of intense mental electron manipulation through her body to get her limbs working properly again. (Though that was an effect of also having her whole body structure rebuilt.)
• Positive Electricity Manipulation: Helena can manipulate, create, absorb, generate positively charged electricity. Due to the constant repulsion the protonic electricity is concentrated, therefore it looks like energy, but it still has the effects of normal electricity and it packs a huge punch.
• Create Lightning Storms: Lightning can occur with both positive and negative polarity. Lightning lasts about 30 millionths of a second and can rapidly heat the air in its immediate vicinity to about 20,000 C. (36,000 F.) (Try and dodge that when it's generated 10 feet in front of you)
o Negative Lighting: An average bolt of negative lightning carries an electric current of 30,000 amperes (30kA), and transfers 15 coulombs of electric charge and 500 megajoules of energy. Large bolts of lightning can carry up to 120 kA and 350 coulombs.
o Positive Lighting: An average bolt of positive lightning carries an electric current of about 300 (kA) -- About 10 times that of negative lightning.
• Electrostatic Adhesion: The adhesion of Helena to an object subject or surface by generating attractive electrostatic force between materials. Static cling is generated on a part of the body (or the whole body) to cling to anything.
• Body Health Improvement/Digression: Helena can send Positive and Negative Electric Ion's through your skin. This if Negatively charged can, strengthen the functions of autonomic nerves, reinforces collagen, (tissues that are resilient and tension-related) Improves the permeability of the cell's prototype plasma membranes, (Improves metabolism) Strengthens the body's immune system. This can however be the exact opposite if she charges your with Positive Electric Ion's. 85% of Negative Electric Ions are absorbed from our skin, only 15% is inhaled through our lungs. If you were able to increase the amount of Negative Electric Ions you absorbed you could:
o Strengthen the functions of autonomic nerves.
o Reinforces collagen (tissues that are resilient and tension-related)
o Improves the permeability of the cell's prototype plasma membranes (improves metabolism)
o Strengthens the body's immune system.
This can help improve asthma and other respiratory conditions.
This can help Stimulate Mitochondria. (Mitochondria can be called the "powerhouse" of the cell. Most living organisms use food and oxygen to make ATP/energy in a process called cellular respiration. Most of cellular respiration takes place inside the mitochondria)
Negative ions may decrease the severity of depressive symptoms hyperphagia, and fatigability)
Negative ion regeneration for youthfulness and longevity
. (Including the reverse neurovegetative symptoms of hypersomnia,
o Negative ions neutralize pollutants and provide positive effects on health to:
Stimulate the reticulo-endothelial system, a group of defense cells in our bodies that marshal our resistance to disease.
Act on our capacity to absorb and utilize oxygen. Negative ions in the bloodstream accelerate the delivery of oxygen to our cells and tissues.
Speed up oxidation of seratonin (5-hydroxtryptamine) in the blood. This is well known to have far reaching effects on mood and pain relief.
o How Negative Ion Affects the Human Bodies?
The body has two energy systems within our bodies consisting of two forces, magnetism and electricity, with the electricity component consisting of low-frequency direct-current (DC) electric field. This electromagnetic energy system is affected by earth's natural electromagnetic environment, which is normally relatively quiet, with minor rhythmic variations, but which experiences great increase in a electromagnetic charged environment.
Negative Ions help improve the natural bodies recovery mechanism in the cases of stress and specific physical problems.
Increase blood flow with resultant increased oxygen carrying capacity, both of which are basic to help the body healing itself.
Changes in migration of calcium ions which can either bring calcium ions to heal a broken bone in half the usual time, or can help move calcium away from painful, arthritic joints.
The pH balance (acid/alkaline) of various body fluids. (Often out of balance in conjunction with illness or abnormal conditions)
Hormone production from the endocrine glands can be either increased or decreased by Negative Ion stimulation.
Altering of enzyme activity and other bio-chemical processes.
o Note that these effects Helena can create, but she cannot specify how they will affect the body. Her sister (Vivian) is the one with that kind of power.
Electromagnetism Manipulation: The user can generate and manipulate electromagnetism which (with the exception of gravitation) account for almost all physical phenomena observable to the unaided human senses, including light and other electromagnetic radiation, all of chemistry, most of mechanics (excepting gravitation), and of course magnetism and electricity. That said, only few truly powerful individuals are capable of reaching such heights of power, most users have to content themselves with lesser if still impressive abilities. The highest level of this power is Light, Microwave, and Molecular Manipulation.
• Magnetophosphenes: This is flashes of light (phosphenes) that are seen when one is subjected to a changing magnetic field such as when in an MRI. This changing field causes current within the retina or visual cortex resulting in the illusion of light. In one series, 8 out of 1023 people having an MRI experienced flashing lights.
• Electrical Propulsion: Helena can propel herself using electromagnetic force to propel herself similar to how solar wind is created.
• Magno-plasmid Dynamic Propulsion: Helena can take moisture in the air (Fog) and through hydrolysis convert the moisture into hydrogen and create a plasmid thrust through making an electromagnetic current through the hydrogen behind her and using her own magnetic field as the ground to cause a tether of sorts.
• Electroreception: Helena can use electroreception to locate objects around her. This has two categories.
o Passive: In passive electrolocation, the user senses the weak bioelectric fields generated by living beings and uses it to locate them. These electric fields are generated by everything living due to the activity of their nerves and muscles.
o Active: In active electrolocation, the user senses their surrounding environment by generating electric fields and detecting distortions in these fields using her ability to sense these electromagnetic fields. This allows her to detect non-living objects as well as living beings.
• Iron Sand Manipulation: Helena can manipulate Iron Powder, the miniscule particles makes the sand more malleable than other physical elements. Iron sand can be hardened into sturdy constructs. This ability can be used for Create/control hardened weapons, create shields and armor, clot up machine joints, turn iron sand into a chain like sword and vibrate it like a chainsaw, crate a massive sandstorm with iron powder, capture opponent with iron powder and crush them with extreme pressure, if the sand is magnetically charged it can disrupt brain waves.
• Railgun: By creating multiple opposing forces Helena can create ferrous pressure and shoot a ferrous object at mind bending speeds. This generates kinetic force.
• Microwave Energy: Helena can convert her electromagnetic field into microwave energy, which can disrupt electrical signals. (WiFi, Cell Phones, Cameras, ect) She is limited to the power output of this ability, it is not hard to do, but she can only produce a certain maximum to it.
• EMP: Helena can create an Electro Magnetic Pulse, thus shorting out any electronics in the area. (Including her own)
• Electromagnetic Noise Manipulation: Noise can be an extremely dangerous electromagnetic wave, it can disturb electromagnetic wave based technology or kill electromagnetic wave-based life forms. The key of this power is the ability to harmonize with the noise, you can control or generate noise, this includes mimicry their proprieties. (Like sending your own digital or radio conversations) This power can affect computer data, distorting, corrupting or destroying it.
• Molecular Manipulation: Helena can only at her very best accomplish this feat. Once she reaches this level she can only do it more a very short amount of time, she will suffer nose bleeds and massive headaches as her brain tries to complete the vastly complex calculations. Once she reaches this ability she can practically do anything in the universe.
• Light Manipulation: This is also a very hard feat for Helena, it is not a part of her main ability skill set, but can be achieved through high concentration. With this Helena can:
o Holographic Illusions: Create images that look completely real
o Lasers: Create a laser beam where she can in terms generate the energy through her electrokinesis and produce the light at an even greater focus than otherwise.
Magnokinesis: Helena can generate, control and manipulate magnetism in all its forms, both natural (planetary, solar, lunar, stellar, magnetosphere, magnetic materials/ferromagnetism, etc.), organic (generated by the electric currents of living beings) or artificial (everything creating/using electricity). User can affect any matter that is magnetic (iron, nickel, cobalt and their alloys, some rare earth metals, naturally-occurring minerals such as lodestone) manipulating and controlling them as they will and indirectly use them to manipulate other things.
A list of ferromagnetic materials:
• Chromium (IV) oxide
• Ferrite (Iron)
• Ferrite (Magnet)
• Ferromagnetic Material Properties
• Gallium Manganese Arsenide
• Neodymium Magnet
• Rare-Earth Magnet
• Samarium-Cobalt Magnet
• Yttrium Iron Garnet
• Extremely powerful pyrokinetics can manipulate electricity to some extent.
• Heat distributions is a must and she must try and move from areas when they become too hot, even with her trying to distribute it efficiently.
• The electricity can go to the path of least resistance if she is not concentrating properly.
• Useless against insolated materials unless turned to plasma.
• In water environments it requires much, much more concentration to produce what she wants and keep the electricity from harming herself.
• Some technology doesn't like her, such as holographic interaction technology. She has to use her abilities on the machinery itself rather than using the touch screens.
• Iron Powder may melt from extremely high temperatures.
• If power is derived from magnetism/electromagnetism, then if the ability is hindered the ability will also suffer.
• The metals are limited to iron, nickel, cobalt, and their alloys.
• Magnetism in objects is destroyed at high temperatures.
• Light can be reflected through mirrors, so a laser might not be a good idea to use with mirrors around.
• If one is able to look at a mirror, one might be able to see past her illusions.
• Gravity can bend light.
• Can be overwhelmed by darkness matter.
What Enhances Their Ability? Helena doesn't really enhance her abilities, but can mitigate the cost of them by using external energy sources.
What Happens If Your Abilities Go Out Of Control? Exactly what happens to Genesis during the civil war. An electric blast wave of electrons that leveled a fourth of the city.
Convenient Ways To Use One's Power?
• Brush Teeth: The same principle as an ionic tooth brush, by giving your plaque and bacteria a negative charge and your teeth a positive charge all she has to do is hold her hand up to her mouth send in the charges and just use the negative charge to extract the bacteria and plaque and throw it out.

I guess people on this forum aren't interested in Science Fiction, and I probably shouldn't have posted this on a purist science site.
