We've merged your life essence with that of several creatures at once. You're welcome.

Le Guin draws a clear line between merely taking the form of an animal or object and truly becoming that thing. This dichotomy admits two important things about Changing in Le Guin’s world: one, that it is a useful tool, and that humans are not superior in all ways to the creatures with which they share the world; and two, that the danger to a wizard is not losing his natural race or species, but instead losing himself, losing who he is.
