If Miles had been spiked and healed through it then spiked and healed through it again, when both of those spikes are given to 2 random people do all 3 now share enough of a spirit web to trade and use eachothers gold metalminds? 

No, they would not. They could use Mike’s metalminds, but not each other’s:



If someone used Hemalurgy to take someones Feruchemical abilities would they be able to use that persons personal metalminds? Most relevantly perhaps to take that person's knowledge from their copperminds?

If someone stored their identity in an aluminium metalmind, then had their powers and metalminds stolen via Hemalurgy, then the person who took the powers used the aluminium metalmind to draw out the first persons identity would it permanently overwrite their personality with the original persons ? ( would kind of be a long winded way of stealing someone else's body and becoming immortal )

All Identity questions are a RAFO until I deal with it more in the books. (Sorry.)

WeiryWriter (in response to the first answer)

If the spike granting Feruchemy were to be reforged/split into two distinct spikes which are then implanted into two different people, could those two people "share" a metalmind (as in actually be able to tap something the other stored and vice versa?).

Brandon Sanderson

It's complicated, but no.

There would be too much of the other person mixed in. Both could use the metalminds of the person the Feruchemy was stolen from, but when they made their own, their own Identity would "muddy" the creation.

Thanks for those WoB.  


This would still offer a potentially easier avenue to have a weaponized gold ferring handout.  It may not be shareable between all but you could have a crew or team of people all able to share metalminds without the need of playing with identity if they all were spiked with similar spirit web.  

Would the spirit web eventually get to jacked up even for gold compounding to heal through the spiking process?   Or could Miles keep healing through and making new spikes so long as he had the gold to do it?
