In English

  1. (First Opinion) Life-forms can be celestially-healed by involving the high-life-powers : Those threads can get involved with astrology-magic :  Revelations (of life forms) can be from astrology-magic :  Moon-eyed Su cannot form-life :  Revelations are not being threaded by astrology-magic.
  2. (Second Opinion) Life-forms are not getting stuffed by the boundary (life-network). The Greaser (Selu, Selene) can thread the high-life-powers. :  Fate-Curses are being energized by astrology-magic  :   Offerings can be noticed by Su
  3. (Third Opinion) The Revelations (of life forms) have been foreshadowed by Thu. Astrology-Magic of Su can life-form nothing  :  Emotional-Energy can be noticed by Su.  Don't offer anything to astrology-magic.
