Surges, thought to be the fundamental forces by which the world operates—are more accurately a representation of the ten basic abilities offered to the Heralds, and then the Knights Radiant, by their bonds. They are manipulated by Surgebinding.[1][2] There are also 'god Surges', akin to the god metals used in the Metallic Arts, though it is not currently known what these Surges are or how they are accessed. The Adhesion and Progression Surges are not god Surges, but could be considered as such by some.[3]
