¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨&&              ARROW OF TIME.              &¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨

&&&&¨¨&&¨¨ GRADUALLY  LOST INTO  LESSER FORMS (SUCH ¨¨¨¨¨&&&&&

¨¨&&¨¨&&¨¨ SPECIFIC AND INTRICATE  CANALS, FOR THIS &&&¨¨¨¨¨¨&
¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨& TO HAPPEN IN A  CONTROLLED MANNER. THINK &&¨¨&&&&¨¨

¨&&¨¨¨¨&¨¨ THE  POTENTIAL IS HIGH ENOUGH  TO ESCAPE ¨¨¨¨¨&&¨¨¨

¨&&¨¨¨¨¨¨& ALTHOUGH   MANY  ARE  LOCAL,  THEY  STAY ¨¨¨&&&&¨¨¨
¨¨¨¨&&&&¨¨ ACTIVE  UNTIL  CLOSED  OFF   BY  COUNTER &&¨¨&&¨¨&&
¨&&¨¨&&¨¨& SPELLS (HARD TO PULL OFF) OR  THERE'S NO ¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨¨

¨¨&&&&&&&& IN THAT CASE  THE OUTCOME DEPENDS ON THE &&&&&&&&¨¨
&¨¨&&&&&&&  SPELL. SMALL-SCALE BREACHES MIGHT NOT   ¨&&&&&&¨¨&
¨¨¨¨&&&&&¨ EVEN BE  NOTICEABLE BY THE  UNINITIATED; ¨¨&&&&¨¨¨¨
