nobody read this part of my post? "If all plasma blades are of the same charge they will still repel each other,"

anyhow I'm no physicist but a very high concentration of superheated plasma would act somewhat like a solid, in that coming in contact with another blade of plasma would provide resistance enough to block the attack, even apart from magnetic repulsion. The same resistance upon contact with matter would also occur, except that the plasma cut a path thru the matter quicker than any tactile feedback could possibly make you aware of resistance. The way a hot knife slides through butter with no pressure applied.

If this were not so, we would not be able to channel plasma thru metal conduits such as with the plasma propulsion engines they designed for long range space travel. Plasma does not simply phase through metal, unless hot enough to melt its way through, and likewise, high density plasma would not phase through a separate beam of high density plasma.

IE the ONLY difference is that it wont be reflecting blaster bolts
