How does Ci + Ghost reaver + Vaal pact work?

Sorry to revisit this issue, but apparently I'm an idiot. So I was reading about the interaction between ghost reaver and life leech and read about ghost reaver here: https://www.pathofexile.com/forum/view-thread/76413/page/1 . Is this hidden life pool stuff really true? I always imagined that if I didn't take vaal pact with ghost reaver, the maximum leech cap would be calculated using my energy shield, not my total life if I wasn't CI. If so, I understand why if you take ghost reaver, it is almost mandatory to take vaal pact.
ES Leech is ES Leech, it scales off your Energy Shield and not your Life.
Nuro's Harp sure got shafted eh. From 42% Slow to 14%.
