*Vul Ag - reserved for more advanced organisms, this protocol explained how a bio-engineered creature would be made to transpire more easily. (The entry on Vul Ag refers to a guideline establishing the ease of transpiration of lifeforms engineered by the Yuuzhan Vong race. However, the word transpiration makes no sense in this usage. Literally, the entry states that this Shaping Protocol establishes the ease with which an artificial Yuuzhan Vong organism "occurs", or, logically, "exists", which has no meaning in this statement, at least without further specification.)

The Shaping protocols were the guidelines and blueprints used by the Yuuzhan Vong to create their technology through bioengineering, stored within the Qang qahsa. Stored in levels known as cortexes, the first, second, third, fourth, and fifth cortex were available to viewing by any member of the shaper caste. Only Master Shapers were allowed access to the sixth and seventh cortex. The highest of them was the eighth cortex, believed to be the most perfect information the gods gave to the Yuuzhan Vong. In truth, the eighth cortex was near empty. Violation of the protocols was deemed heresy, and was grounds for automatic death.
