  • Jonas, you also need the capacity to see beyond.
  • The reciever is going to train another reciever and be the giver.
  • The Chief Elder explains that they tried to pick a new Receiver about ten years ago, but it failed. This is clearly an uncomfortable topic for everyone, so she quickly moves on.
