Am I right in thinking the Mandate are not the only School/group of human sorcerers that has knowledge of the Gnosis at this present?

Well at least I got this one right . . . <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) -->

A few questions about Aporetic sorcery and Chorae:

1. You said Aporetic sorcery was used by the defecting Nonmen Quya to make Chorae. So I'd like to know if these defectors were the only Quya who knew/developed the Aporos or if there were/are any loyal Quya left who know and use the Aporos. Also do the Consult/Inchoroi still have practitioners of the Aporos or know how to make any new Chorae?

2. I'm interested in the effects of two clashing Aporetic cants: do they cancel each other out? Would an Aporetic sorcerer stand a chance of destroying a Chorae (which I assume is a frozen Aporetic cant that any mundane can use) directed against him?

3. The exact reason why Chorae instantly destroy a sorcerer. I assume this happens because sorcerers, while crafting a Cant are actually imbuing it with some of their essence, and that the Chorae, unraveling the Cant also unravel the place within the sorcerer from where the sorcery comes from -- and so, unraveling this metaphysical link results in the unfortunate <!-- s;) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- s;) --> side effect of turning them into a pillar of salt. Anything to this?
