These are people whose awareness can only be transformed into action at the right time. It is not easy for them to mentally transport themselves into the future, since their strength and clarity only manifest themselves moment by moment.
If these Gates are not connected to the Motor, then their character in this channel will be verbal - this is not the Gate of action. Such people express a completely individual knowledge, which, however, can be as surprising as it is irrelevant.
Without the active 34th Gate, they are able to speak in the moment, but they will not necessarily realize it.
