Limits of Ascension

Becoming a Daimon seems to be a pretty nice way to go. You're effectively ageless and indestructable, and can enjoy the hall of heroes with many interesting fellow daimons. However, TMRE doesn't really go into the limitations of your Aspects. Apparently, they don't "study by turning the pages of books...", and its uncertain whether they need to be summoned to go where they want. Can one perform Original Research as a daimon? Bind a spirit familiar? Invent Spells? Create enchanted items? Can they, as an irrevokable rule, only learn via practice and teaching, or could they learn from a book if they absolutely had to? Let's have some discussion on just what you can and can't do as a Daimon.
