Right - for clarification of my post, I'm saying that Alia is in my opinion what would happen if you tried to create the female equivalent of a KH (EDIT: and what I mean by that, is a KH by the new definition of KH based upon Paul, not on the original definition which would just be gibberish since the KH was basically to be a male RM). She's clearly above and beyond the average RM's capabilities, but also not stable due to the problem with male OM.
Am I correct in my statement above that the issue of male/female OM is not actually one of access per-say, it's more an issue of the danger of attempting to access the male? I always got the impression in the books that if an RM was dumb enough she could totally choose to look into male OM, it would just destroy her.
