What Eatheron is experiencing is a more subtle possession, by the dispossessed spirit of another Mage, which can linger in the world in corporeal form if they are strong enough. You are right, though, I did not really explain how casting that spell worked, which was the Comet of Cassandora. I tried to show that Eatheron cast his spell through implication, but killed himself in the process. Didn't seem like I executed that too well, but you live and learn.

Thanks,
