I've come to call a certain phenomenon the "conglomeration effect." This is when several smaller, seemingly mindless animated entities come together and generate a collective intelligence and form a larger body composed of the smaller parts working in tandem. Most of these conglomerates have focal points that act as a central nervous system as well as a weak point. I feel that if one were to disrupt these points, the being would be forced to disperse.
Not only do conglomerate entities use the energy from possessed physical objects to cobble together a body, but they can form simulacra from the solid residue of ectoplasm itself! Under the right (or wrong) circumstances this could potentially result in an autocatalyzing system with a geometric growth rate.
These guys are tough! Most equipment won't do much to their stony form. Use the Stasis Beam to pin them down, then launch a few Boson Darts to expose their weak points. Wrangle and slam those loose to make these walls fall.
