Some texts claim that there are means by which a person can seal themselves, or be sealed, beneath the earth and live for centuries, unable to move, see, hear, touch or taste. These texts claim that when all consciousness of their own existence has been worn away, the sealed one's "other eyes" will open, and they will be able to perceive and effect reality by non-physical means. The texts further say that the sorcerer or victim will be driven almost mad by the thought that their perceptions could be simple dreams or delusions, and this hysteria gives them great power. Thus if they can be truly convinced that they are perceiving the world, then they will instantly lose their power to do so, and will die. The other method of banishing such a creature is by finding and destroying their body.
