All assassins are great guys if you are not their target.  Or collateral damage.

I am concerned that Feyd has abused and tortured Wash's  mind to the point that he may have caused permanent  damage that cannot be healed. And it's a shame that those who should have cared for him looked down on him and left their care too late. I hope he does survive and Feyd's  plan to restore his mind works but it's hard to be optimistic  at this point. I do keep hoping though.

I am concerned that Feyd has abused and tortured Wash's  mind to the point that he may have caused permanent  damage that cannot be healed.

I very much doubt that, especially in light of this:

Quote
But Feyd buries a key to unlock the truth deep in the recesses of Washburn's mind. Far away from his conscious mind. For Feyd wants these memories to be accurate in the future after he is no longer a captive of the Grand Duke.

It seems very clear to me that Feyd means his meddling with Wash's mind to be fully reversible at some future point, once Feyd no longer has any need to use him to get to Valerian (and whatever other end goals he might be envisioning).

the brain is nothing more than a computer. a computer has long term memory (hard drive storage) and short term memory (RAM). a computer's memory is magentic electrical in nature. while the brain is chemical memory, most likely a string of protiens. yes both kinds of memories can become degraded or corrupted and lost.

if Wash's mind was a computer this is what Feyd did:
a. copied the original memory files and put those copies in a hidden folder in a different part of the brain
b. rewrote parts of the originals to make it seem like life was harder and giving Wash some resentment for it and changing his loyalties. this has happened many times before with other Deryni to other Deryni and humans.
c. wrote a script (program) that will restore the hidden original memories to the proper location replacing the false altered memories. but this program is dormant and hidden as well. it might take Feyd to run it. Or it might run automatically if something specific happens.

It could be detected as a false memory if someone does a deep Mind See on Wash, but that takes time. Also if the that deep Mind Seeing was done and the false memory detected as a false memory, then another one could be preformed and possibly find the hidden memories and the "script" that restores them. And even Wash's blocking ability could be discovered too.

If Wash was Mind Ripped, it could possibly destroy the false memories and the hidden originals but then since the hidden ones aren't where memories belong they might survive.

And since Valerian has a war to win. Doing a deep Mind Seeing on Washburn isn't something to waste time and effort on just now. Maybe down the road once Laas is secured.

That's helpful Bynw, thank you. Personally I feel quite hopeful - although I do think you like testing our imaginations and ingenuity, which is presumably what this is about.
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.
(Psalm 68 vv1-2)

Thanks bynw and Evie. Your explanations  are always helpful and do make me feel more hopeful. I can see how this has really expanded and challenged imaginations and ingenuity  and really developed writing skills.

If Washburn's mind is like a computer, could we just do a reboot and return everything to normal?   ;D

Given our luck with dice rolls, we might end up accidentally reformatting him instead!   ;D

Any mind is technically that way. Just a series of electrical impulses and strings of proteins. Technically yes you could "reboot" it. But that is beyond the ability of the Deryni in Katherine's world.

Also if you copy files on the computer. Move the copied file to another location. Go and write over the original files. Rebooting wont restore those files. They would still be over written and the copies would still be hidden. You would need a restore point. But then you could lose data that happened after the restore point.

Just hope Feyd's restoration  trigger works and he can restore Wash's mind and he will have the chance to become the great healer he could be. It would be a shame to lose that.

LOL  Hay wait just a minute here!  I assure you that Washburn is a Morgan, Not a computer. And Morgan's have a style all their own. Reformatting indeed. PHHHTH  lol Washburn and I will find a way. It may be unlike any "WAY" you have ever seen before. But don't count us out just because we are down.
:Hear the cheer squad in the background:     Oh, hmmm, You don't hear them?   well never you mind then.
BIG SMILE!

Yay for you Laurna. The cheer squad is right behind you all the way. With your ingenuity I know you and Wash will find a way.
