Bright was always kind of a puzzle, seeing as he seemed to respond to other newtypes near the end of 0079, but is listed as an oldtype. I mean, it seems possible for a powerful newtype to send a message to an oldtype, but the oldtype may not be able to send one back. We also have After War Gundam X, which while an AU, DOME basically says newtypes are more mutants, than an actual evolution. Is it possible that every human has the potential to be a newtype, but some simply never awaken their newtype powers? There are cyber-newtypes who are humans that have undergone enhancement to have the same powers as newtypes. Is it possible that the procedure (hinted to be drugs, genetic modification, and cybernetic implants) unlocks the portion of the brain/body that makes a newtype a newtype, but that the side effects are a result of this happening forcefully, instead of naturally and the body adapting to it? Basically post-traumatic stress disorder on a different scale. The only one who was powerful, yet shows no side effects is Full Frontal, and this may be because he essentially had his brain overwritten with Char's memories and thought patterns, thus effectively giving him a mind and brain that could reconcile being a newtype, the base naturally was one.
As for Maria, I always wondered, since she was never shown healing people on screen (at least not that I can remember), if she was simply a very charismatic leader or doctor, and the supernatural healing aspect was fabricated or exaggerated by Fonse and the Gattle party to elevate her to the status of a diety. We do know that certain very powerful newtypes can manifest their powers externally, like Judau, and Ple Two had some sort of psycommu-like device that allowed her to control ground funnels outside of a mobile suit. It's possible that Maria may have had something (psycommu, or a piece of psycoframe) that allowed her to do the same that was never revealed, however that is just speculation.
its true that anyone can become a new-type it is something that is manafested from a combanation of exstream stress placed on a person. however there is also the seperation of family across distences greater then the earth is round from forced seperation of family via forced imigration to space. well some newtypes do actualy develup PTSD (in the seventys called battle fatige) its not always needed to be a newtype. an awakend newtype needs to go through exstream situations like amuro and banager did. however in the end all newtypes are pepole who have been seperated by vast distince greater then the diamater of earth.
healing pepole is a ability that some psychics are said to have and may be a secondary power gaind by awaking as a newtype.
Juda used the bio-sencer to empower his suit and by the time of v gundam the psycomu evolved into the bio computer. psyco frames were no longer by uc0100 mostlikey do to the fact that they tend to crystalise there pilots when a Psycho-field is created.
the most famous newtype in the gundam franchise amuro ray was a first generation colonist and his newtype abilitys first manafested do to the fact taht he was seperated from his mother who lived on earth. stress does play part of the role of becomeing an awakend newtype but its about a raised level of consisness to conect familys across massove distences. an awakend newtype is a newtype who has elevated his consisness from exstream stress.
The function of a Bio-computer and the psycoframe and psycommu are actually exactly opposite. Also, the psycoframe only formed crystals in the case of the Unicorn. Beyond that it's a total unknown why the technology seemed to vanish even for experimental mobile suits. Newtype tech seems to be far less commonplace in the second universal century, especially Victory Gundam. The only newtype suit in that is the Gengaozoa, and the only real other relevant newtype tech in that show is Angel Halo.
Judau is able to manifest his powers when Leina is shot by Haman, and he is not in a mobile suit. As for newtypes developing, there are plenty of characters who's family were close to them, or were dead and developed into newtypes. Stress seems to play somewhat of a factor, but it's a bit of an unknown what causes the newtype phenomenon.
new types dont really need a mobile suit to use there abilitys its the other way around a new type use mobile suit needs a newtype to use its fancy toys. the quzi psycomu made it so they didnot realy need a newtype to use funnles and bits anymore. the biocomputer can be reversed to work as a psycomu as stated by seabooks at teh end of the movie.
Maybe so, but the intention of the bio-computer is more like the Zero System. It is a piece of hardware designed to increase the abilities of the pilot, by feeding him/her information directly from the mobile suit. Traditional newtype technology, like the psycommu, psyco-frame and later the neo-psycommu, are built with the intention of improving the response of the machine, by feeding the pilot's brainwaves directly into the machine. And while the quasi-psycommu allowed regular pilots to make all range attacks, they were limited to incoms, which in terms of mobility and range are inferior to funnels and bits. Where a funnel or bit can move in any number of directions, to any range and fire as long as it has energy and fuel, incoms are restricted to the length of their cable and how many relay incoms they can deploy to change directions. Also a disadvantage to the non-newtype remote weapons, was the number available. Most suits that have incoms have only two to four incoms. Most newtype units that use funnels or bits carry a minimum of six, and some up to thirty. I do find it odd though that in the later UC, all range attack seems to have become much less prevalent, especially in terms of funnels and bits.
true about the bio computer but your missing the bio-sensor of the zeta gundam series of ms which is also simuler to the zero system. i feel that the lessining of the all range attack in second centery of the UC calonder was do to the implamentation of smaller ms and the fedis trying to cover up isistence of newtypes out of there fear of them.
The Bio-Sensor was basically Anaheim's and Scirocco's attempt at a downscaled Psycommu, as at the time, the only mobile suit scale Psycommu was built by Neo Zeon for the Qubeley. It didn't feed any information to the pilot like the Zero System or Bio-computer, it was intended to improve the link between MS and pilot. However, it had the side effect of amplifying the suit's power, if the pilot was in an extreme emotional situation, similar to the psyco-frame, but apparently with less potential output.
As for All-Range attack, the reduced size of mobile suits would have made the damage done by a funnel more severe than what would be done to a larger suit. Also, all-range attack would have allowed attacks to get around beam shields, by attacking from an angle that the beam shield could not cover. It more than likely has to do with the Earth Federations fall into stagnation, as the high performing mobile suits/mobile armors were being produced by other factions, like League Militaire, Zanscare, Jupiter Empire and Cosmo Babylonia, and all the space based groups had some degree of all range attack on at least one model,
