Aspects are the hallucinations of Stephen Leeds.[1] Each aspect has some specialized area of knowledge.

Existence[edit]

Creation

Stephen can create a new aspect by skimming through a book or listening to a tape. If he does not already have an aspect for that subject, a new one will be created. This process does not require his attention or conscious thought.

Knowledge

Aspects need to close to Stephen for him to use their information. They cannot affect the real world, so they must tell Stephen their knowledge. However, two aspects who have cell phones are able to communicate information to Stephen through them. J.C. was also able to grab Stephen's hand to shoot people when Stephen was in danger.[2]

Disappearance

Aspects are able to die. Once an aspect is dead, Stephen can no longer access that knowledge.[3] They can die both by simple human ways to die or by turning into a nightmare, which happens when Stephen loses control.[4] Every aspect except Jenny did one of these two things while Stephen was trying to find Sandra.[5]

Known Aspects[edit]

As of the I3 case there were 47 extant Aspects, one was introduced during the case bringing the number to 48. This number excludes Aspects that died or disappeared before the I3 case. (marked with a †). When Jenny was created it brought the number up to 49 until aspects began to disappear.[6]
