Description: Noumena refers to an esoteric philosophy which posits that reality can never be directly perceived. The spell itself grants the magician both an innate sense of the movement of the stars and a change in mental disposition very much akin to that belief. Practically, the spell allows a Trader to draw down the power of the stars even when they are obscured by by clouds or, with enough potency, daylight itself.
Effect: Allows Starlight Aura regeneration under cloud cover or in daylight
Example Messaging: The spell imbues you with an artifical sense of revelation. The world around you seems somehow both more and less real at the same time, trapped behind an unbreachable wall of perception.

You gesture. Your cambrinth armband emits a loud *snap* as it discharges all its power to aid your spell.
Your nestled armband emits a loud *snap* as it discharges as much power as necessary, leaving a fair amount left for future use.

The Sun also fails to hide the cold reality of the stars. The truth of the Heavens still flows, and so your aura is enriched. (Cast during daytime, 50%+ Potency)
You strain for deeper revelation, to call down true starlight through the veil of the Sun, yet it eludes you. Perhaps you have not yet achieved true understanding. Perhaps there is a reality to perception. You may never know. (Cast during daytime, 100% Potency Easter Egg)
