If you're curious about Myriad Reality, you're better off just jumping in and trying it out since it's easier to learn about it as you go.

Shinji:.... let's just get this done. Its already bullshit enough that I'm stuck here while my people risk their lives, and that I'm being essentialy held against my will, but whatever. My priorities lie not in appeasing people I barely know, but saving the people who trust in me, and seeing to the EDB's growth. If this is something in my way of doing that... then I have no choice.

*I close my eyes and pinch the bridge of my nose.*
Alright, alright. I think I'm gonna leave you be then.
You'll find yourself gaining a few abilities within your inner world as you make progress with your self growth, and of them one will be what lets you interact with those fragments. At that point you'll be able to move on to the next step.

Oh, and watch out for your shadows if you decide to wander the unconscious plane. For as much as you may want to suppress or even kill them, you will likely be unable to do so, let alone even fight them. It's best to run from them and lose them before re-entering your inner world, lest they invade and start destroying it in an attempt to get their own way and have influence over you.

I'll be around, so just give me a holler if you've got questions or once you've made the self growth progress necessary. *I vanish.*
<Snipped quote by Stabby>

...would I be better off, alone?

...I don't know.
On one hand, I can help explain things to you and try to give some guidance when possible. But on the other, this is your process, and you should be allowed to try doing it your own way if you so choose without me hovering around and comparing it to my own experience.
*I scratch the back of my head.*
I can be pretty bad about that sometimes.
<Snipped quote by Stabby>

Shinji: fair enough. I've made up my mind, I want to finish this all in one go, instead of breaking it into sections. Its better that way.

I mean each section is still part of a single go. If you want to try it solo though...
*Smirks and shrugs.*
Your choice, but be prepared for an info dump before you do so since I'm not going to just leave you to it without some kind of guideline or reference point. If you choose to go solo, I'll be sharing the basics of how my journey through this process went, along with key information.

Well, for one, I know what this city resembles. Its a part of my inner psyche that stands as the 'skeleton' for my mind. The infestations are manifestation of me allowing myself to slide on my morals and boundaries... or so I think.

Hmmmmm, that might be, whether it is or not is up to you to decide though. Also, not to dampen your spirits or anything, but the personal realization I was talking about would moreso be you recognising or coming to terms with a part of yourself that you wouldn't have considered previously.
Making connections is a good first step though.
<Snipped quote by Stabby>
I already have realized something about myself, possibly.

And that is?
<Snipped quote by Stabby>

*grabs your finger as you go to flick my forehead*

Do not belittle me.

*lets go, and looks to you*

Anyways, whats next?

Alright, alright.

*Pulls my finger out of your grasp.*

What's next is that you get comfortable with being in your inner world to the point that you either find a manifested influence or realize something about yourself. At which point we will likely be able to move on to the next step.

Listening to Femus's response, Nira smiled when he said that some more support would be useful. Even if he was only coming at it from a strategic point of view, she was glad that he was at least open to the idea.

About to respond, she realised that Femus was now taking about how he had gained mana control. Listening carefully and intently, she found that his explanation made a lot of sense. The skill was called mana control after all, so the idea that she should learn how to control each aspect of how she could use her mana was pretty obvious now that it had been put out there.

Reaching for the feeling of her own mana while Femus continued on his project, Nira tried to draw only a little of it out between her hands. From there, she tried to form a little pathway of mana that would let her own internal flow pass from one hand to the other, seeking to not lose any of it through the process.

Regardless of how well she was doing, Femus's words soon interupted her. Focusing her attention outwards again, she realised that he was taking her up on her offer to teach him the aqua orb spell. He was also considering what to do for the rest of the day. Hunting would be a good way to save the leftover edible herbs for later, but Nira felt that nailing down two more skills was a bigger priority for herself. But when Femus stated his next idea, Nira soon found herself nodding in agreement, as the prospect of easy hunting would definitely be a good use of their time.

"I think the scavenger bait is a good idea. If we get lucky, we might be able to dry out some of the leftover meat with the water orb spell, since it pulls ambient water from the surrounding environment to form itself."

A parallel to some embedded ideals? Interesting.

*looks around*

Well, it seems we're safe. Shall we begin searching for those shards?

*Flicks your forehead.*
You really do forget things quickly. I never said we were done with this first step yet.
Heck, you still have no way of interacting with the shards even if you started gathering them.
<Snipped quote by Stabby>

Shinji: it is just some mental scape of sorts, or something. Maybe that has to do with it.

*I shake my head as I land.*
Even if the inner world is a mental thing, for as far as your brain is concerned this is a world that operates under a set of rules, like any other. Your mind creates as it perceives, and perceives as it creates, kinda like that quote from Inception. So if this city was built strong, it might have been done so in parallel to some subconscious intent or reason within your mind.
But the key word there is "might", as sometimes it's just your brain filling in the gaps with something it thinks is reasonable.
