Bumping up the level doesn't make things less dangerous. Messing too much with your own car'all is one of those dangerous things. At higher levels you can mess with it more, but it will also be more dangerous.

Moving Ounia is Sphere II btw.

I meant it's a high level because attempting it below level 5 would always be fatal, levels 5 and 6 usually, and if not fatal, likely they would bear the scars, but a level 7 mage should just about be able to sustain the balance enough to stay alive, by not completely transforming their whole self into a ball of fire but stretching themselves to be essentially and theoretically a ball of fire, but not literally and physically - it isn't a fireball, more a human in a temporary state change, like ice: you freeze it, then it melts again and it's exactly the same, not like plastics, that return to monomers once melted. I hope you see what I mean, it's hard to explain...
Think a dynamo and a motor. At one end, motion is turned into electricity. At the other end, it's reverted back into motion. Yes, energy is lost, but that's why, before the spell, the mage must gather said energy. It is when this energy has run out that the mage begins to return to his/her humanoid or otherwise original form.

You will have to take into consideration that Car'allia do not follow the rules of physics, as they are immaterial things.

As a Car'all defines what something is, changing you own car'all means changing what you are on the most basic level. And while a car'all will always revert to a stabile configuration after being influenced by magic, that does not have to be the same configuration it started out with.

It is possible to change a rock into air, and have it revert because the car'all was not changed in the meaning of its structure ( which requires ounia moving, instead of link weakening/strengthening ). Changing yourselves into a fireball like that would require more ounia than your car'all posesses, thus they must be added. This institutes a permanent change in the Car'all.

(wich by the way gave me the idea of a fire spell that turns items into fireballs that go BOOM[/i][/u] on the spot.. maybe something you'd like to do?)

You could turn yourself into a ball of fire for a moment using sphere I. Whether you'll still be alive when everything reverts is questionable though. Take the freezing for example: freezing water and letting it melt again is not a problem, but freezing a living being and letting it melt again is.

Moving your own ounia outside your own car'all and back is sphere III (removing + adding) and again, not a very smart thing to do. Moving ounia inside your own car'all is sphere II, so even if you could successful turn yourself in a human torch you still be just a human on fire and nothing more if you kept it to sphere I.

Because Ximax doesn't teach suicide techniques...and there are alot more ways to kill yourself that require much less effort...and if the mage died how would he be able to write down his technqiue for other's to learn?

As Marvin says, it would only be for a moment: the rest of the duration is the transformation back. The human is still there, but the fire is also, but the human is sort of the dormant of the two, and slightly wood-like, but once the fireball has formed, the human instantly begins to re-form its original shape, like elastic: you drop a rubber ball, it will be a different shape the moment it hits the floor, and will change back to normal as it rises; like punching a punch-bag: you rear up for the punch, you throw it, the punch-bag is momentarily deformed, then slowly returns to its original state.

The only problem being that it would most likely be a dead human when reverting back and you still wouldn't be able to 'throw' your fireball.

Yeah, after much revision of the system and valid comments here, I see I'm typing out of my ****: it does appear to be physically impossible without negating the whole original idea of it. I have got another spell idea, though, which is a lot more simple and less life-threatening: Wyvern's Breath. Shall I use this thread for it or start a new one?
