The emotional force generated during the sea.nce varied between –5 to +16.

 

 

 

It was in direct proportion to the active participants.

 

 

Inactivity was registered by grayed (commonly known as sleeping) avatars.

 

 

 

Emotional temper was also registered by activity in the message box.
(See Message Box files)
