An absolute was a work of gramarye (magic) with only two outcomes, success or Death. Eragon learned not to use absolutes while training with Oromis[1]. A substitute for absolutes was to phrase the spell as a process, which you could stop any time. Absolutes were shorter than non-absolutes. Eragon used non-absolutes on Murtagh during The Battle of The Burning Plains.
