Reference Notes

Prolonged small-scale exposure to the Heavenfield's atmosphere, as is typically experienced through normal environment suit usage will have similar effects to Type-A exposure, but the severity is somewhat lessened and the subject may find the symptoms easier to cope with.

The symptoms of Type-B Field exposure can initially be hard to spot, but care must be taken that once diagnosed, the patient must be provided with the necessary counselling and courses of medical treatment to avoid a hyper-sensitivity to the Field, which can lead to visions and psychological trauma, with anecdotal evidence pointing to an ultimate physical transition into the Field (assuming the patient survives the various physical and mental side effects). At this point there is little evidence to support this so-called 'being taken by the Field' [see Field Transition - Transition Trauma].
