The shackling of gravity itself is the purest expression of the Unseen Shackles discipline, this stance is reserved for the true master of gravity.
You gain perfect control over gravity, fully shackling the shackles which bind us to the universe. While in this stance you gain the benefit of both Unshackled Hands and Unshackled Tethers. You also gain benefits based on which Unseen Shackles stance you know.
If you know the accretion disk stance you may create an accretion disk as a move action, however unlike the stance you do not drop out of this stance once it is destroyed. You may use a move action to refresh the temporary hit point of the disk, recreating it at will.
If you know the interstellar distortion stance, you may create the gravitational distortions as a swift action, but you create six instead of three. You may only fire up to three per attack.
If you know the jovian steps stance, your unseen shackles discipline weapon deal damage as if they were two size category larger and you gain a +8 stability bonus.
If you know the personal orbit stance you gain the ability to have objects orbit you much like it, however you can grab objects one size category larger than normal. This grant your equipment the floating properties like the stance as well.
Finally you are constantly under the effect of freedom of movement and become able to ignore any gravitational-based natural phenomena, such as the pull of a black hole. A notable exception is crossing the event horizon of a black hole, which still bone you.
