The Neti, after healing and feeding several of the tested on Ysalamiri and glaring at several of the testers, returned to his notes and to go over the notes of others. Voidsteel having a minor distortion on the effect was expected, the unearthly rock and its unnatural properties dampened the Force. Unfortunately thus far nothing concrete had been discovered.
Reading through the notes, Orn discovered something interesting however: Ysalamiri couldn't control their effect on the Force.
This presented some evidence to the theory of wavelengths and frequencies that the Force was still able to be effected on, as the only way for the passive, involuntary biological stacking of their bubbles and shared collective, was that if they were working as a group in a meld. An involuntary one at that.
More notes were swiftly transcribed by the Jedi Master and presented to the group once more.
Upon study of other findings, it seems evident that the shared communion of the Ysalamiri is related to the Force due to their effects involuntary response. It is as involuntary as a being's heart beat, and thus in order for them to amplify one another, they must be connected involuntarily as well.
With the connection likely being related to the Force, jamming radio waves is unexpected to have any effect.
However, creatures in the wild have been known to suffer ill-effects from electromagnetic distortions. If a species that travels south for the winter lives near a powerplant, it has been documented that some of them would orient themselves directly away from the powerplant, as though it were Magnetic North, until outside the radius of its distortion.
In some insects distortions in the EM Field can disrupt the shared hive mind (though normally attributed to jamming signals in some manner), though in less sophisticated animals like honey bees, a minor disturbance can cause them to lose cohesion with one another.
Additionally, humans exposed to electromagnetic fluctuations have been known to suffer vertigo, disorientation, seizures, loss of memory, and sometimes death as the field causes their natural bio-electromagnetic field to be distorted. A body's biochemistry is designed to operate under a bio-electrical current, that when exposed to electromagnetic fields of the right frequency can be disrupted, causing tachycardia, nausea, loss of vision, and vertigo in the right circumstances. Very minor fluctuations in the electromagnetic spectrum has been known to cause discomfort, a sense of unease, and the inability to concentrate in some humans before.
Knowing this, and with the effectiveness and technological advancement of modern electromagnetic weapons could it be possible to emit an electromagnetic field on a frequency that would disorient Ysalamiri in order to disrupt their shared connection? It is known that a similarly distressed Jedi may have difficulty using his abilities, so the same should be true about other Force Sensitive creatures. If the right frequency was attained, the Ysalamiri may no longer be able to connect to one another and their fields should dissipate into overlapping ones rather than a single amplified one.
The Neti finished scribbling on the paper with his fingers, it should be noted he used his own branch-like appendages to write, and so much of it was fairly scratchy at best, however it was written. Maybe something the more intelligent and scientifically inclined members of the group could use so they could stop trying to flash-bang Ysalamiri to death.
