>>55066899>Lose all of your biological functions in exchange for clarity of mind to perform mechanical tasks
Let me tell you, something, I once burnt my tongue and now I can't feel a certain part of it where it used to taste things.
To elaborate that better, imagine moving a part of your body to interact with external stimuli, only for the lifelong response you are accustomed to simply not coming, and only feeling the pressure as that part of your body bears the weight of the food in your mouth.
A integral part of the experience in eating is gone.
And you want this- Over your entire fucking body, except even further because there won't be a single thing to fall back on, meaning that you're literally just an abstract functional mind?
You could pump a man full of painkiller, and he'd feel the effects on his body, he'd feel numb, but at least he'd FEEL it, what you're proposing is something so fundamentally alien that it removes this complete sense of self.
To make matters worse, every single one of your daiyl routines dicated by biological function are gone too, no need to go to the toiler, brush your teeth, wipe the sand from your eyes, drink your coffee or anything, the only semblance of sleep you will ever have is is placing yourself in a trance to memorize spells.
In addition to losing biological function, you lose the ability to love, or anything feeling relates to how you serve your own interests. The entire point of Lichdom at this stage now only serves you to follow what ammounts to what is left as a mechanical logistic function of continuing your studies or magical research, item creation and development, because it's the only thing you, have left, you've actually ERASED the very call to will that would have you do anything else.
