The meaning of bones Edit

In MAG 80: The Librarian Jonathan asks if there is a power that manifests with bones. Leitner answers:

"You’re thinking too literally. Examining the physical categorization, but ignoring the meaning of the thing. What are the bones? In the Distortion, your “Michael”, the structure of a skeleton, an established reality in your mind, is twisted and warped into an impossible form. But in other cases? Are they a symbol of slaughter and butchery? Are they the familiar made wrong? Or are they simply part of the messy, physicality of flesh?"
