I remember that evening and that conversation. What I had said was that your Assemblage Point appeared shattered. I was seeing that in the moment - it was not a judgment but rather an observation...
"I was seeing that in the moment - it was not a judgment but rather an observation..."
The Assemblage Point is a glow that is your attention. Since people have more than one attention it is called the first attention. Normally that glow is about the size of a fist and located about shoulder level and a bit to the right and back. Normally that glow is one glow.
The AP is known as the first attention...
Your assemblage point appeared shattered in the sense that rather than being one glow there were many - dozens. If there had only been a few glows we would call that "a split Assemblage Point". That is not to say some thing shattered it or did not shatter it - but was just my clumsy way to describe how it appears as compared to normal. In this case "normal" means healed and is what we want - rather than normal as in what you might see in a whacked out society.
Shattered is not uncommon but not normal either.
As a seer one would see the effect of that. Having a shattered Assemblage Point (for lack of better words) means that you would have trouble focusing your 1st attention on one thing. You would be "subject to" having many things in your attentions (like it or not) that, in effect, sort of fight for or occupy your attention(s). That would make functioning and being functional in certain ways challenging or impossible.
Try to imagine for a a while how perception or the lack of perception "affects" some one. The classic example is a horse with blinders on. Imagine how the the blinders (focusing only forward and the lack of side to side perception) effect the day to day reality of the horse.
Not to say this is the problem you have - just an example.
Someone with one Assemblage Point would fully light up what they are focusing on. Someone with one Assemblage Point would fully NOT light up what they are NOT focusing on - this would mean their attention is free/freed up to focus elsewhere.
Someone with a shattered Assemblage Point would not fully light up what they are focusing on. And, in a sense, would not be able to stop focusing on (lighting up) some things also. They would be subject to focusing on many things that may or may not be related. They would have their 1st attention on many things compared to most of the people around them which could make relating challenging.
The Assemble Point is a glow that can be moved although most people do not move it. Moving it creates a "freedom of perception" which seers seek out.
Since it can be moved, it can also be gathered up in to one piece again. To gather a split or shattered Assemblage Point and form it back into one piece would be to heal it.
For the healing to last, one might (usually) have to keep gathering the Assemblage Point into one piece again and again over time and learn why it is splitting or shattering so as to prevent that splitting or shattering.
1Note that the assemblage point is shattered.
2Mold it back into one glow.
3Monitor over time that the assemblage point stays formed into one glow.
