Sharing is an ability allowing sensates from the same cluster to share knowledge, language, and skills. All sensates within a cluster have the ability to share with one another at will and sometimes incidentally without the borrower nor sharer being aware of gaining or lending knowledge, as evidence when Will Gorski connected with Sun Bak and began speaking Korean, her native language, without realizing it.
All sensates within a cluster can not only share as a group but also focus their respective skills into one member of the cluster, as exemplified during the fight between Wolfgang Bogdanow and Lila Facchini. The two sensates had simultaneous access to all the skills of several members of their respective clusters while brawling against each other.
Sensates are constantly mentally sharing to others in their cluster. Due to the constant sharing of abilities and knowledge between sensates, the act of sharing could occur without the consent of the sensates in times of great need.
Borrowers can perform sharing with and without the consent of the sensate they are acquiring the needed skills from.
- At will
- Sensing another sensate's need or desire, borrowers can choose to be mentally present at another sensate's location and either perform actions for the receiver or witness the receiver use the borrower's knowledge and skills.
- When receivers are in desperate need of aid from other sensates, borrowers' may unintentionally share their abilities without full contact with the receiver.
- Borrowers, while sharing unintentionally, may mentally sense another sensate using borrowers' abilities but may choose not to interfere with the receivers' actions.
Receivers gain abilities from borrower sensates within their cluster. Similar to borrowers, receivers may achieve abilities from borrowers incidentally or at will. However, due to the sensates' link within the cluster, receivers are always receiving information and abilities from the other sensates sometimes without knowledge of neither the receiver nor borrower. Recievers developing thoughts of the other sensates within the cluster increases the amount of knowledge shared by the borrower.
When sharing takes place, the receiver may see the borrower present and sometimes may not. If the borrower is not present during sharing, the receiver will use the abilities of the borrower while mentally appearing like the borrower sensate. Receivers may use the abilities of the sensates within their cluster, but sometimes may not realize that sharing took place.
Members of the August 8 Cluster have shown skills and knowledge that have been used by other members, while other skills have also been shown by individuals but have thus far been unused by other members of their cluster.
