The thing about the human will is that it’s very finicky, like a blunt knife. Sometimes it works. But it isn’t about the strength of will. It’s more about the importance one places on the way one thinks, similar to placing a person in the middle of a maze. If he doesn’t care about where the exit is, then nothing will happen.
Of course, a link has to be formed in order for this to work. So he imagines his pen as a bridge, and draws directional signs for those who care.
