Im sorry but it is my personal opinion that it would be impossible to make a movie out of this as that the plot is far to complicated for a screen play as they would have to take large chunks of the novel out to because if they didn't the movie would be 3 times as long as a Lord of the Rings movie and a Star Wars movie combined. and also the cost for such a movie would be a large sum not many are willing to pay unless there is a gurantee of it being a hit. I hope i did nto just crush everyones hopes and dreams. But to be nice if Arnold Swartznegger grew his hair out he'd make a pretty good Cnauir view post

Im gonna have to go with what the guest idiot said [quote:2g5avxs6]He also had sex with the ground. Does that make him tri-sexual? Can you screw a planet?[/quote:2g5avxs6] Having sexual relations with a man does not make you gay, having sex with a woman does not make you straight, and so on. Its like saying having sex with no one makes you no sexual or a non sexual. Also i find it quite odd that Cnauir's sexuality comes up so often in other posts as well. view post

posted 03 Mar 2006, 04:03 in Author Q & ACishaurim explanation by Warrior-Poet, Moderator

The whole reason for my question was that I was thinking on how the Psukhe was part of Fanimry so it made me wonder if perhaps Inrithism is false and Fanimry is in fact religously correct. Thus being the reason for Cishaurim sorcerers being unmarked by sorcery. view post

Diem Kaye, Im pretty sure Kellhus had the haloes around his hands before coming down from the tree. I think there is a passage somewhere in WP that Serwe talks about his hands being golden or haloed. However it might be quite possible that the more time he spent in Earwa he became more emotional(more human) and unknowingly tapped into the Psukhe, but it seems highly unlikely. view post

Read pg 36-40 of WP and take special notice of the last sentence. Also notice the whole time she seemed to be getting him riled up about the Cishaurim and strongly disliked his pact with them. If im right i could see her being a skin spy since Xerius' childhood perhaps even the night she seduced him. I mean seducing your son and having him kill his own father to ensure his path to the throne, I mean what better way to manipulate and control an empire than that. view post

Anasurimbor Maithanet? posted 05 Mar 2006, 20:03 in The Thousandfold ThoughtAnasurimbor Maithanet? by Warrior-Poet, Moderator

Isn't Maithanet an Anasuribor as well. Something I find interesting is that everyone seems to think that Kellhus, Moeghus, or Kellhus' children as possible Harbringers and Saviors but everyone seems to forget that Maithanet is Moenghus' son therefore an Anasurimbor. So doesn't that make it possible for himself or one of his children to be the harbringer and savior. Personally I think it would make perfect sense for him to be the Harbringer because he started the Holy War. view post


posted 06 Mar 2006, 02:03 in The Thousandfold ThoughtAnasurimbor Maithanet? by Warrior-Poet, Moderator

This also makes me wonder just how many Anasurimbors there actually are I mean Moenghus seduced quite a few people in a very short time, Cnauir's mother was burned after giving birth to his child. Who's to say just how many others there are like this. Not to mention how many Anasurimbors there could be back at Ishual. view post

One question why would Esmenet's child be a bastard Anasurimbor? I don't think Kellhus is going to allow his child to be bastard, and as far as things go in Earwa I think there pretty much married. view post


posted 09 Mar 2006, 20:03 in Author Q & AInrau's sorcery by Warrior-Poet, Moderator

Ummm Maithanet was not there when Inrau used his sorcery it was only Aurang, Sarcellus, and another controlled Shiral Knight. If I recall correctly it was Aurang who said "Mandate fool!" One question though from his small amount of time among the Mandate wouldn't he still be damned using small amounts of sorcery, I think it said somewhere in TTT that even in the beginning of learning the Gnosis you would have all the weaknesses of the Gnosis none of the strengths in otherwords vulnerability to Chorae. Can you undamn yourself I mean is there anyway to remove the mark from yourself if you stop practicing sorcery. view post

[b:wlkz1mca]Andrew said[/b:wlkz1mca][quote:wlkz1mca]i think you guys are missing the fact that you can learn both elements of the cant - the utteral and then inutteral (whatever - verbal and mental) phrases separately. You only obtain the sorcerous mark if you actually complete a cant by "saying" both portions of the cant simultaneously (verbal and mental phrase). You can learn both portions without being marked. You can learn to think one phrase and speak another without thereby casting a cant - for example, you could learn to utter an inoccous phrase and think an innocous thought. So for Inrau, it was probably the first time he had ever cast a cant, ie. combined his learned spoken phrase and the learned mental phrase.[/quote:wlkz1mca] Im not missing anything I was just under the impression that that was not Inrau's first time and im almost sure that it says in Darkness that he had cast some minor Cants. view post


posted 12 Mar 2006, 01:03 in Author Q & AInrau's sorcery by Warrior-Poet, Moderator

[quote="unJon":2lwpn2k2]Andrew, I think what you say might, in theory, be true, but it does not seem to be the way that the Mandate teaches its students. [quote="TTT pg. 137 US hardback":2lwpn2k2]In Atyersus, teachers always started with what were called denotaries, small precursor Cants meant to gradually develop the intellectual flexibility of their students to the prodigious point where they could both comprehend and express arcane semantics. Denotaries, however, bruised students with the stain of sorcery as surely as any Cant....[/quote:2lwpn2k2] So if Inrau could "express arcane semantics" like he seemed to be doing when he cast that BA Cant on the skin spy, then it stands to reason that he should have been Marked given the Mandates normal M.O.[/quote:2lwpn2k2] You beat me to it by like seconds unjon.

It is quite possible he thought it to be of little consequence in the big picture.[/quote:1ty83e4d] I agree he didn't know that Kellhus was a Dunyain and therefore did not know that he would have such a drastic effect on the Consult's plans. Or it could be that he saw this as a fulfillment of the prophecy. view post

Its likely that if the Dunyain are discovered they will A) Kill or capture them. B)Ally themselves if you could call them allies and manipulate the Consult for their own purposes. And just because both want to close themselves to the Outside so to speak I have a hard time believing that the Dunyain will ally themselves with someone who would be considered the outside to them Perhaps im wrong but if someone does find the Dunyain im not sure it will be the Consult. view post

uJ, Where does it say he doesn't know who was of the Few with Dunyain analyzation I think those who could see the onta would talk about it maybe not knowing what it was but knowing it all the same. Example Akka described seeing the onta when he was a child. Also its highly likely that almost all Dunyain are of the Few meaning nearly everyone he knew was likely of the Few. I saw it as this though he sent Dreams to all those he remembered before he left Ishual and only some were capable of recieving it. Rooster [quote:31pe7h6p]they most likely could break a lesser Dûnyain and thus demystify Kellhus, which would prove rather dangerous to him[/quote:31pe7h6p]. Breaking a Dunyain I see that as nearly impossible, and demystifying Kellhus will not help either because 1) He is already Aspect-Emperor with Shirah on his side. 2) Everyone see him as a Prophet and will think anything said is lies. 3) Achamian (along with a few others) was demystified and look what good that did.

Is there somthing I'm forgetting? cuz the Inchoroi can basically engineer flesh, since we've decided that the Tenke is more science rather than sorcery. If they can make sranc, bashrag, ect. why not otherthings. maybe the body that had sex with Esmenet was Aurang's own personalized creation, maybe it was his own body...besides, didn't TTT describe him as having dark wings, or somthing like that, when he seduced Esmenet the second time so that he coul posses her?

[quote="Entropic_existence":6ogq8e55][quote="stormchaser":6ogq8e55] Maybe, and certainly Scott has the last word. It's just that so much of what we're shown of the Dunyain and their techniques involves ways of understanding and mastering the natural world exactly as it is, as opposed to sorcery which involves remaking reality in ways that completely transcend natural law. I don't see a whole lot of correspondence between the two disciplines. The idea that the Dunyain have been breeding for sorcery without even knowing it seems just a tad too pat, given the complete worldliness and absolute practicality of the Dunyain world view. [/quote:6ogq8e55] The Dunyain believe that Sorcery is merely superstition, and do not believe in it being real until they are confronted with it. (As happened to Moenghus and Kelhus after leaving Ishual) But as Scott said the ability to work Sorcery is inherently based on certain cognitive and intellectual abilities and predispositions, making the two tied together. The Dunyain do not practice Sorcery obviously, but from what little we've been shown I think that a rather large portion of them are of the Few, and would have the ability to work Sorcery should they chose to learn. Whether they reject it or not is another matter entirely. Certainly Kelhus came to the conclusion that the Dunyain, should they learn the truth as he sees it, would ultimately side with the Consult because in order to achieve their mission the influence of the Outside would need to be removed.[/quote:6ogq8e55] I agree completely. view post

[quote="xhaldur":1up48h9h]to answer the original question of this thread, I believe thousands of gods exist. Some people call me a neo-pagan or whatever. Personally, I believe that men make gods. I believe that in the beginning, a god is just an idea, but after hundreds, thousands, even millions of people continually pray/worship to a certain deity, that deity is then made real. I make my own scented oils, incense, altars, charms. I've been working silver and other metals for over 10 years so I'm good at the whole charm thing by now hehe. I always wear around 3-6 charms on my body everyday and won't leave the house without them. I know that seems wierd and I suppose it is a little =P One thing I do is keep my personal practices to myself. I usually don't talk about them to anyone, I keep it a private relationship between the deities that I do worship and myself. I think religion is a good thing, it helps inspire many people to be someone better, to help others, etc. However there's always a flipside and it's sad that we have such extremists today in the world. Like Pat Robertson and other supreme asses of the Christian right or Islamic militants who decide to kill all the infidels. In general, I just try to be a good person and be nice to people.[/quote:1up48h9h] You sound like the book American Gods. view post

I mean that genetic engineering would be able to solve problems natural selection never could by itself. You're right that I probably went too far when I stated that we are beyond evolution now. Got carried away by my argument, sorry. Your comparison of war with locusts is apt, I think. I do believe that many of the natural constraints of this world have been overcome by humans. In that sense, we [i:9d03dx7x]are[/i:9d03dx7x] above nature. But the principles of evolution do still apply, albeit at a social level rather than at a genetic level.[/quote:9d03dx7x] You say humans have an advantage because they can actively search for solutions for specific problems while evolution needs thousands of years or might fail completely, you also say that genetic engineering could solve problems like natural selection never could. Genetic engieering could be considered just another form of natural selection because genetic enginnering removes the unwanted trait, form the process because we as the environment deem that trait unsuitable for surivival. When most animals search for a mate what do they look for? Strength, cunning basically the best chance for surivival this applies even to humans, we may say that we chose someone because we truly love them but really before we even chose them for their personality our body had alreasy chosen that person for their genes. Infidelity is a major example of the problems this can cause, a woman or man may love their wife or husband but when they see another person who they find to have better traits you had better hope love comes through. [quote:9d03dx7x]whilst evolution either needs hundreds of thousands of years to come up with something similar[/quote:9d03dx7x] A couple thousand years is a good long trial isnt it, thats why evolution in the long term works better theres time to weed out problems and see what a change in genes effects years later genetic engineering fixes problems for the short term removing genes for the present constantly [u:9d03dx7x]blindly[/u:9d03dx7x] without knowing the full extent what these changes will have done. Scientists still dont know what many genes do if scientists remove a gene similar to the Sickle cell gene we could be sufering from some future disease(if you dont know what im talking about look up malaria and the effects Sickel Cell gene has on it.) Another example are genes that cause mental retardation which i personally believe carry the key to evolution because of their ability to solve problems and memorize. If the communication barrier and behavior is removed mental retardation wouldnt be such a bad thig to have. Mental retardation is just one of the many branches that evolution is testing for surivival over time it may prove to be a good gene to have. [quote:9d03dx7x]Yes, with "humans have the advantage" I mean that humans can actively search for solutions for specific problems[/quote:9d03dx7x] What exactly gave us this advantage? Whats the word im looking for.....o yeah we got that form thousands of years of "flawed" EVOLUTION. What gave us larger more efficient brains EVOLUTION. All animals have this advantage there means to solve problems is the only differences so to say humans have this advantage would be foolish.

If i were Akka as soon as i heard about Kellhus with Esmi i would have roasted the bastard on the circumfix but hey thats just me. but if had gotten all the way to the point of Kellhus becoming Aspect Emperor i would have done the same thing as he did. and yes Akka kicks ass view post


posted 13 Apr 2006, 02:04 in The Thousandfold ThoughtThe Aspect Emperor, Inrithism, Fanimry, and the Schools by Warrior-Poet, Moderator

To some extent i think Akka will end up kneeling to Kellhus in one way or another as much as i hope he doesnt. Even with all that has happened to him he still wants to prevent the apocalyspe or at least prepare for it and without Kellhus thats pretty much a lost cause whether he admits it or not he needs Kellhus. view post


posted 13 Apr 2006, 15:04 in The Thousandfold ThoughtThe Aspect Emperor, Inrithism, Fanimry, and the Schools by Warrior-Poet, Moderator

[quote:1i2onha7]There's a Kellhus centric passage wherein he seems to be communicating with the world and it seems to be answering back. The passage begins can be found on page 289-291 in the canadian trade paperback edition. In this passage, Kellhus can hear his name being shrieked and actively begins conversing with an entity that replies through seemingly natural phenomenon. I don't understand some of the imagery however one did stick out after rereading the book. Kellhus seems to ask the wind, "What was I to do? Tell them the truth?" and amazingly the world answers. He finds a twig in his sandal and on it are two leaves. One green and healthy; the other brown and dead. I think this is Kellhus invisible voice telling him that he must murder his father. Seemingly Kellhus is opposed to this idea as he responds, "No, I cannot." Of course, there might be some other explanation for this. Any alternative suggestions or help interpreting the other images in this passage would be appreciated here[/quote:1i2onha7] If you are referring to what Spamoram said ^ and my answer to him that he was recalling Leweth the trapper when he abandoned him in Darkness then yes i think im still right about Leweth pg 289 [quote:1i2onha7]Kellhus thought of snow hooded mountains, the flash of sunlight across glacial heights. He thought of deep forests and lost cities, of moss-limned statuary leaning from the humus. He thought of unmanned walls... It seemed he could hear someone shreiking his name through frozen forest arches. "Kellhus? Kelllhuuss!" How far had he come?[/quote:1i2onha7] Now after that point perhaps he was communicating with the world or the No-God or something even though i personally doubt that i think he speaks to himself or it is a part of the Thousandfold Thought but the passage above is most definitely Kellhus recalling his travel from Ishual. The "Kelhuss? Kelllhuuss!" part ultimately i think makes me right as if you go to page 25 in Darkness Leweth says exactly that. I could go on about other things that make me right but if anyone else disagrees with me and has good evidence to argue please post. view post

1.) All if not nearly all Cishuarim are dead and Kellhus will not form an alliance with them he has no need to and Cishuarim is apart of Fanimry Kellhus will not accept that. 2.) [quote:vfxk3p4v]Moenghus remained isolated for a long time and it was probably the Cishaurim which kept the Consult spies in check. [/quote:vfxk3p4v] The Cishuarim had no idea about the skin-spies until Moenghus revealed them. When exactly are you saying Moeghus was in isolation? THe Cishuarim as a whole did not keep the spies in check they foolishly thought it was the SS hence why the assasinated the Grandmaster of SS. 3.) I have no idea what your "pratical hunch" is talking about it is very confusing and i dont see how it is relevant. [quote:vfxk3p4v]I don't think it is an inconsistency either. I have a hunch that it is more of a practical thing. The skin-spies could stay away from Cishaurim, and we don't know how much the Cishaurim interact with the leaders. I think the Psukhe took a bit from their social life.[/quote:vfxk3p4v] view post

ASOIAF and PoN are among my favorite series but I tend to like Pon more because you can relate to it and its realistic. Its stupid that people dont like the way women are portrayed because thats how women were treated and in some cases still are, making the story all the more realistic, and those other reasons are also foolish because PoN is probably among the most interesting, most characterized, and pretty damn complex fantasy series ever written. Kellhus being too powerful is true but how many hundreds of other series do the same thing. And the "philosophical drivel" also makes this series stand out from other series. I can't understand why anyone cant like PoN all three series in my opinion are so different you really vant make a comparison. I like ASOIAF and PoN haven't read the Malazan series and thats probably good as well but theres nothing really bad to say about PoN. Thats my 2 cents. view post

Wow way way way to many questions and most have an answer in the books. 7.) Nothing stops soldiers from stealing them and yes sorcerors sense them. The Gnosis is more powerful than the Anagogic sorceries i really dont feel like discussing the why becuase its been said many times all you have to do is look around on forum. 6.) The reason they dont salt is beacuse of the socery they use they use sorcery remembering of the God's heart and not the mind. 11.) This has benn said many times also i think theres even a page that says 10 schoolmen are worth more than like an army or something similar, theres so few of the Few that a few sorcerors makes all the difference. view post

Im not understanding what your asking for six, the mark does not cause a sorceror to salt when they touch a chorae, the use of sorcery causes the salting. People of the Few that don't practice sorcery do not salt because they have [url]never used sorcery[/url]. The only difference between Cishuarim and other Schoolmen is that the mark is not seen on the Fanim socerors he reason for this is explained in my previos post, chorae affects all sorcerors. view post

Cause is right about genes, and something I think people often forget is that many people born in Ishual are not geniuses and the Dunyain root these out from their tests like finding their way through the Labrynth beneath Ishual theres a passage in one of the books where it mentions that many die during the test, so although refined genes play a part in making Dunyain the tests and training is what makes someone truly Dunyain. view post

All depends on what you think inhumanly beautiful means. It could mean many things inhuman is a negative word where as beautiful is a positive word. If you look up inhuman in the dictionary you get words like "lacking pity, kindness, or mercy: Savage, b. Cold impersonal, 2. of or suggesting a nonhuman class o beings. So when it says inhumnaly beautiful it does not have to be a positive thing. view post

A problem that most schools have is the strictness on fighting, by stopping fights and discouraging that kind of behavior students bottle up all of there emotions to the point where they take out that anger in a much worse way, Id say fighting is quite healthy at least mentally and stops violence from escalating to guns. view post

Two ideas that would make sense to explain the altered dream, 1) Things happened much differently during the Apocalypse than the dreams depict or a warning of what is going to happen the second time around with Kellhus or one of his sons taking on Anaxophobus' place but on the side of the Consult.

With the Schools weakened greatly what are your ideas about whats next for them. I personally think that Kellhus will unite the Schools into one Super School. Not only does Kellhus have enough power to do this he also has good reason to do it, by uniting the Schools animosity and war between Schools would cease to exist and help focus on a common enemy(The Consult). view post

All the members of the mandate had intense dreams; we were witness to some of them because they were shared.[/quote:37tif5nl] I was less talking about the intensity of the dreams and was more talking about the change of events and nature of the Dreams, also Akka's annihalation of the SS imprisoning him and his overall attitude has changed drastically. It seems to me that if anyone is going to be the Seswatha incarnate it will be Akka. However if the connection exists the knowledge Akka could obtain would be immensely useful to Kellhus view post

Just because his shame is associated with sex does not mean he desires Proyas in that way, its much the same with some homosexual men in the modern world who are ashamed of their behavior or the way they are who would also in all probability think of someone they had great respect for.

Nephilim=Children of Fallen angels. Wikipedia's definition: In the Torah and several non-canonical Jewish and early Christian writings, nephilim (in Hebrew הנּפלים means those causing others to fall) are a people created by the crossbreeding of the "sons of God" (benei elohim, בני האלהים) and the "daughters of men". (See Genesis 6:1.) The word nephilim is loosely translated as giants or titans in some translations of the Bible, and is left as nephilim in others.

Your connection to the Dune books is valid, as are many of your points. Referring to the Daimos, all sorcerers and Schools are capable of using Daimotic sorcery however only the SS has delved so deeply into it, most Schools and sorcerers choose not to use Daimotic sorcery as to not suffer the agony the agencies they summon will inflict upon them. Iyokus will likely be a double agent so to speak, and a definite thorn in Kellhus side. view post

Despite what many people think and what the media shows good things are happening in Iraq and many of the people do want us there, with the all the trouble going on over there if we were to pull out now another dictatorship or something worse would spawn and we would right back to step 1 or put ourselves in a worse position. view post

As Napoleon said "Religion is what keeps the poor from murdering the rich." Meaning without religion morals quite possibly would obsolete and we would certainly be warring and murdering, etc, Without even thinking it is wrong or right. Gods keep people in check. Most of the earliest laws created were religiously based, ex. Hammurabi's code was said to be instructions from a God to Hammurabi, Ten Commandments, the 5 Pillars. Religion is both a blessing and curse people fight over which one is correct but also gives them morals. As for sorcery. magic is in the eyes of the beholder early sorcery was likely just early forms of science or unexplainable events of nature, though im not saying sorcery couldnt have existed in this world anything is possible. view post

On the idea of whether less wars would have been fought without conflicting religions I agree religion did cause large scale problems, but what I was saying is that on a smaller scale morality comes into play which makes people think about their actions whether something they did was right or wrong. As for the magic aspect, people do fear what they themselves do not understand or do themselves, you would have to say jealously must have come into play. Who wouldnt be envious of such power and if you cant have that power then noone should, which eventually would use religion to kill off these old ideas and beliefs about sorecery using words like unholy, What better way to kill a powerful belief or magic than using something even more powerful to say it is wrong like a God if someone tells you it against a god a being with unlimited power your thinking will change pretty quickly. view post

Well there is so much we already have no understanding of in this world parallel universes and such is a definite possibility. One example dark matter is a substance we have very limited understanding of, what does it do, where is it from.

O I do not make the common misconception of thinking Buddha was a god, sorry if it seemed as though thats where I was going with it, though I agree many do, what I was trying to say however was that people are always trying to make something into something its not. When Buddha began he was not trying to start a new religion or anything similar he was trying to enlighten people and reform ideas that were already there, but many people simply could not accept that he was a mere man so they would often question him asking if he was a god or an angel and such. Yes Buddha is a teacher but people still ignorantly think he is something more, and by simply having his statue is veneration which evolves into something more more often than not, kings often turned into religious objects a few years down the line. Rubbing the belly seeming silly to some, is not so silly as some think its very similar to superstition and ritual worship. Religion starts out with the small things. Another example Jesus was a [u:2d5uhwa3][b:2d5uhwa3]carpenter[/b:2d5uhwa3][/u:2d5uhwa3] who wanted to reform Judaism and look what happened with that. I could go on and on with more of my thoughts but I would be blabbing all day. Sorry to make it seem as though I thought Buddha to be a god Im a bit tired so getting my point across was a little more difficult. I look forward to continuing this topic. view post

To answer your question no humans will never be satisfied not understanding something, the whole reason science was even brought about was to explain unexplainable things without using a God as an answer.

Telepathy is such a specific word, Id say all humans have a sixth sense a subsonscious intuition that helps us daily with interpreting peoples feelings and intentions, or communication without words or body language. As for can other humans achieve what Hawking did I suppose its possible but we would likely have to sacrifice another function of our brain. What I think humans as a majority should focus on is developing the use of our brain we have now. You can train your mind to do things many consider impossible, I completely believe that people are capable of what the Dunyain are capable of in PoN. view post

Before i answer your question I will say this many people hide their true intentions and reactions behind other ones. The average person would show fear or disdain torwards that statement but under that would secretly desire to know more about it, because human curiousity knows no bounds. My reaction would probably be that of disinterest some things are best left not understood. As for the clinically insane who knows if the clinically insane are actually insane, maybe they know something we dont. view post

Science is just a fancy word used to describe the art of understanding why things do what they do. I have read very little of the Unified Field Theory though I probably should because I am fond of Einstein's work.

Your question on the word "familiar" interests me. There are many definitions of such a word but the only one I could think of(though I suppose I could be wrong) would be something along the lines of a familar spirirt which could be defined as such, a supernatural spirit or demon supposed to attend on or serve a person, or could be something that aids you in your use of your power. Whether I am right or wrong would be up to you I suppose. And out of curiousity just how young are you Cordelia, and dont feel required to answer, im just curious. view post

And Cordelia I apologize in my earlier post I forgot to answer the question you asked about how was I different from other children. I suppose I was different in many ways, I was more knowledgeable in any topic you could possibly think of other compared to other kids, my maturity was beyond most high school students at the age of 9 and my creativity and ideas were pretty crazy: I thought about things normal kids normally would not know about, and if I ever had to say I had a "magical" gift it would be my intuition with nature and animals, I am very much a person of the mind I am more likely to achieve something like Kellhus' brain power rather than the gifts you seem to possess. view post

Sorry for making such a generalized statement when I used such words as "magical" and "gifts" what I was more implying was that while you seem to have developed that particular (I think I will use the word talent) talent that I am more of an analytical person rather than being capable of controlling energy and such not to say that I myself am not capable of developing this talent. As for the familiars and parallel worlds/dimensions I thought i had stated earlier that I found this to be a distinct possibility possibly I forgot to mention this, but yes I do believe it is a possibility. And where you seem to be leading this topic of "familiars" Sounds nearly identical to the Bronze Canticle series by Tracy Hickman where three worlds exist and one person from each world develop a partnership with a creature from one of the other worlds to use their "magic" so to speak. As for the age question I will answer an educated guess if you return the favor too me without using this board to find the answer. You could be anywhere from 14-100 with your apparent knowledge and wisdom but again I will narrow this because of fairly obvious reasons down to perhaps 14-40 and again I will narrow this once more because of your manner of speaking and your rather newer ideas to somewhere between 14-29 give or take a few years Im not really one for specifics. I could be completely off but this is would be a pretty safe bet view post

Well Im quite familiar with the timeline so most of what you said was not of much interest to me, however I did like your idea about Mekeritrig's statement [quote:2z4gfc8p]"I am a warrior of ages, Anasûrimbor . . . ages. I have dipped my nimil in a thousand hearts. I have ridden both against and for the No-God in the great wars that authored this wilderness. I have scaled the ramparts of great Golgotterath, watched the hearts of High Kings break for fury."[/quote:2z4gfc8p] That would be a good explanation for it, though Im not entirely convinced that was what happened. As for why people aren't active much in this section of the forum, I think I can answer that for you. For one thing most people don't have much else to write or say about the book, they are burned out so to speak on speculation, this is somewhat the case for myself I only reply to a topic in this section if someone raises an excellent point or something that has not been said before, anor does much the same. as much of the topics and posts these days are simply restatements of what others have already written, most of the members of this board just check back for updates on the next books in the series and since Scott has not frequented the board in so long theres not much incentive for them.

Quite an interesting theory Ulyaoth. I think its plausible even if it does not turn out to be true but as Harrol said Scott's work is very ambiguous and as Ive learned from reading his books often things you read that seem to have more to it, either do not or take a complete turn from your own train of thought. Which makes Scott's work all the more enjoyable, things could be interesting if this turns out to be true. view post

I will again comment on this simply because I feel the need to agree with Ulyaoth in the fact that he is correct about salting and also correct that the scene in which Moenghus was "salting" was quite different from how salting was previously described to us by Scott, while Im am still not sure he is correct in his theory of Moenghus transposing out of Kyudea I do believe there might be more to it than Moenghus simply salting away. As Ulyaoth points out such words as sagging do not seem to myself an ordinary salting or a sorcerer. The true reason I like his theory at all is his explanation for the scene with Aurang, which to me seems important in a way we have yet to realize. view post

First of all I'd like to say I really enjoyed reading your post, not only was it eloquently written, it was also largely to the point and insightful, and for that alone I thank you. However what brings me to respond to your post was this [quote:eov5k2py]The one question he never seems to confront seriously is what all this logos is supposed to be *for*--logic can't be an end in itself, it's a means by which to pursue ends. The ends themselves cannot be founded in logic; if you have an end that seems to be founded in logic, you haven't gone back to look at where the logic chain started that it's founded in. Kellhus is as vulnerable to a little kid continually asking "why?" to every answer as anyone else, but seems not to realize it. I have a sneaky suspicion Bakker is well aware of this; it's an intentional, fundamental flaw or limitation, possibly even an Achilles heel in the end. [/quote:eov5k2py] This a very insightful thought, as Im not sure whether or not you are a philosophy enthusiast I cannot say whether or not you have ever heard of Parmenides which is where I first learned the concept of logos. In the case that you are unfamiliar with Parmenides then I will use a very good quotation explaining Parmenides' prologue to his poem. [quote:eov5k2py][i:eov5k2py]The Prologue to the poem describes Parmenides sudden insight into truth as a religious experience guided by divine hands. A chariot is described as bearing Parmenides torward "the gates of the ways of Night and Day." Guided by the maidens, he passes through into the realm of the goddess Dike ir Justice. He is there taught "the way of truth" and encouraged to "judge" or "examine" truth through "reason" or "rational discourse"(logos as it is described) -[u:eov5k2py]Great Thinkers of the Western World[/u:eov5k2py], Harper Collins[/i:eov5k2py][/quote:eov5k2py] I would go on to say much more however as I was writing I realized I would be spoiling future books in my examination of such.

The ceremony allowing the madate schoolmen to become accompllished casters requires a mummified body part, prob. of Seswatha. Seswatha is prob. floating around in some sort of outside realm as some sort of demi-god, the Mandate scoolmen being his contact to the world. Or not. [/quote:2pneuu42] The ceremony involves the potential Mandate Schoolmen to touch Seswatha's heart afterwhich they have the Dreams. The touching of the heart has no factor on them becoming accomplished casters, the touching of the heart is mainly to show the horrors of the Apocalypse and prevent the Second Apocalypse from happening and allows Mandate Schoolmen to go under extreme torture without giving any information, as seen in WP with Akka. view post

You ask who would stand a chance against Kellhus, Im sure there are more than a few Dunyain who would come close, as well as many many characters from the Dune series such as Duncan Idaho or Muad'Dib or his various children. I know Kellhus isnt invincible Im just saying that from what we have seen of Drizzt he would not be able to handle Kellhus' supreme intellect. view post

[quote:2t7n5ys7]Touching of the mummified heart of Seswatha may allow for more than just the dreams though. This is world of magic, and as such one must be ready to allow for possibilities like Seswatha's continued existence. He may yet be around in some other-worldly form. The touching of the heart is a ceremony which gains the initiate the right to learn the greater incantations of the school. So in effect it does play a factor for becoming an accomplished caster.[/quote:2t7n5ys7] A part of Sewatha lives through all Mandate Schoolmen I dont really think he exists in an otherworldly form as youmay be describing but rather lives through Mandate Schoolmen, and when I said earlier that the ceremony has no effect on an initiate becoming an accomplished caster I meant more in the form that the touching of the heart has no direct effect on an initiates casting ability, but the way you said it originally led me to believe you thought the touching of the heart made them better casters not allowed them to continue their training, if I knew thats what you meant originally I wouldn't have said anything. view post

Well we could tackle the issue of Kellhus' ability as a caster but you would have to take into mind that the metaphysics of the sorcery and the metaphysics of other novels are quite different, but if we were to take in to mind both sorcery and magic their would be much less few who could actually defeat or come close to defeating Kellhus. view post

[quote:2d78c5fq]Seswatha is dead; it's been a while since I read the books, but I am sure I recall a passage where it is revealed that the mandate schoolmen partake in a ritual involving a mumified heart thats subsequently 'gifts' them with the dreams. I can't imagine whose heart that would be if not Seswatha's. How could he be manipulating the dreams? How could he choose a succesor at this stage? Are you suggesting that he 'ascended', perhaps? I am quite sure that the creatures of the outside (such as the demons summoned by the Scarlet Spires) are not of this nature in the PoN, more likely they are a type of meme formed from the collective subconcious, and Seswatha's continued existence in any form would strike me as being highly unlikely. [/quote:2d78c5fq] If I recall correctly other people in the books have "ascended" so to speak such as in the scene of the Harbringer prophecy being spoken, he says I see my son riding or something as such stirring our people to fury. So I would say that "ascension" to a point is possible and that the touching of the heart possibly could bind all Schoomen to the Outside Agency that was formerly Seswatha. However I could see equally as well that the touching of the heart takes a part of Seswatha into the Schoomen. You must remember that nearly everyone goes into the Outside its what happens once they get there that matters whether they are tortured by demons, or cycled back into the world, or simply stay there. view post

Ascendant really is a bad word used to describe plus it likely reminds people of Malazan novels, however back to the subject at hand I would say Shauriatas in the terms I would describe the opposite of someone who has gone into the Outside and acting their which earlier is what I meant by "ascendant" he has as it seems to me cut himself or rather his soul off from the influences of the Outside. Perhaps Im wrong but did not Celmomas' son become something of that if I recall correctly near the beginning of TDTCB in one of Akka's Dreams Celmomas says he sees his son with the sun as his charger riding amongst his people stirring their hearts to wonder and fury, and that he whispered to him the prophecy of an Anasurimbor returning. Does this not lead to the possibility of people becoming active Outside Agencies after death. view post

[quote:375hydg9]- I'm very sure that when that bird/man consult thing asked someone about the dunyain, he knew the OLD group of them. My thought is he knew of the pacifistic group that probably wandered the earth, telling of the end of the world and all that prior to finding the northern fastness. [/quote:375hydg9] What evidence do you hold that the Consult knew the old group because quite frankly I havent seen any evidence to suggest this however we have seen evidence that the Consult have no idea who the Dunyain are. Now I suppose its possible they knew at the time of the Apocalypse of the Dunyain but because it didnt mark them as important they forgot them. [quote:375hydg9]- I wonder how well the dunyain could fight an army. Individually they are allegedly without equal. But I recall back to the germanians versus the romans. Now, dunyain could conceivably adapt to group fighting very, very quickly. But from some comments about Kellhus about needing to be taught about war and about reading a manual on how to use something...[/quote:375hydg9] Possibly but I doubt it, the Dunyain are very adaptible the only problem in terms of fighting and war for them would be sorecerors, you must also realize Kellhus needed knowledge of war because he was with non-dunyain who are less superior in terms of fighting. view post

[quote:4c705n12]I actually doubt the dunyain would do as well at fighting highly disciplined soldiers as others may think. They have no experience, and while they would easily adapt I'm sure, lack of experience is big AND their fighting style is individual and very mobile. It's hard to affect probabilities when you must occupy a very tight space in a line. I, again, imagine something like the barbaric germanians who were fierce fighters, but evenutally lost to the group efforts of the roman fighting style.[/quote:4c705n12] Your point about the Romans is somewhat invalid because the reason the Romans were able to overcome the Germanic tribes was because of better training and mainly [u:4c705n12]discipline [/u:4c705n12] who do you know in the series that is more disciplined than a Dunyain I cannot think of anyone. Besides look at the Beginning of TDTCB, Kellhus is already able to kill all the Sranc and likely could have defeated Meketerig if not for his use of sorcery. Dunyain seem to have more than a basic grasp of fighting skills along with their ability to quickly learn. The only disadvantage would be in term of numbers and lack of sorcery. view post

I enjoy a wide range of music from classics to rock as well as others but I think what makes a band or song truly great is when it "moves your soul", so to speak that is, you can feel it inside you, moving you to wonder. Music greats I can think of off the top of my head(besides those mentioned) are Jimi Hendrix, Peter Frampton, The Who, Billy Joel, Colplay, the Eagles, Jack Johnson, Johnny Cash, The Killers, The Offspring. Red Hot Chili Peppers, Santana, and others I cant think of but its all relative to who you are. So whether or not anything matches Pink Floyd is all upon what moves you.

[quote:2yjki0i0]Anyway, I find it hard to divorce Seswatha from the Mandate, and from Achamian’s denunciation of the latter. The school was his instrument and he went to extraordinary lengths (apparently) so that it remained true to its original mission. And I feel the Mandate has remained faithful to that mission; it has always looked towards the re-emergence of the Consult, to the point of being a laughing stock in the Modern Three-Seas. The personal ambitions and feuds and infighting that seem to mark the other schools (bar the Cishaurim) do seem to be largely absent from the Mandate. Even Achamian said as much; when you dream the same series dreams every night and witness the same terrible scenes, personal ambitions tend to pale in comparison. The modern school engages in kidnapping, espionage, murder, and must forcefully appropriate all of its resources from a subject population. And this was the institution that Seswatha founded. Of course, in this respect, it is no different from the other schools who must engage in the same thing, but if you damn the Mandate (and they are reasonably damnable) I feel you also point the finger of blame towards the Mandate founder.[/quote:2yjki0i0] Yes but we have no idea how the Mandate has changed over time methods and behavior wise. Look at how they have treated the Anasurimbor prophecy, they go about it as though Kellhus could be manipulated and would rather use him as a tool than a person, something I do not believe Seswatha wanted to happen. So yes perhaps they have remained faithful to the mission but how they go about it now compared to originally is up for debate. view post

New synopsis for Aspect Emperor sheds a few details on next book. Which apparently will be called [u:rqtzrnlf]The Great Ordeal[/u:rqtzrnlf](Aspect-Emperor) [quote:rqtzrnlf]Some twenty years have passed since the events narrated in The Prince of Nothing. Anasurimbor Kellhus now rules all the Three Seas, the first true Aspect-Emperor in a thousand years. The masses worship him as a living god, though a few, the Orthodox, dare claim he's a walking demon. With Proyas and Saubon as his Exalt-Generals, he leads a holy war called the Great Ordeal deep into the wastes of the Ancient North, intent on destroying Golgotterath and preventing the Second Apocalypse. Esmenet, meanwhile, remains in Momemn, where she struggles not only to rule his vast empire, but their murderous children as well. And Achamian, who lives as a Wizard in embittered exile, undertakes a mad quest to uncover the origins of the Dunyain. [/quote:rqtzrnlf] view post

[/quote:3erjxulw] Just for clarification Akka exiled himself, Kellhus asked Akka to stand at his side and Akka did his renouncing of his school, prophet, etc. As for Baby Moenghus Im still almost positive that the child absolutely is Cnauir's however that doesnt really matter, the child is still regarded as Kellhus'. Though I dont think it really matters which Anasurimbor is the Harbringer because all the Harbringer means is that the Second Apocalypse is coming so the possibilities are huge for who the Harbringer could actually be. As for the bad guy role, I agree it likely will be one of his kids and the synopsis supports that somewhat. view post

Provide good points for your idea, and feel free to disprove another's point.

Of all your options, which is the only one that is testable, is falsifiable; it's also the one with all the evidence supporting it. At any rate "random evolution" is quite properly a misnomer; evolution, the change in the frequency of alleles within populations over time, is demonstrably not random, it is governed by natural selection.[/quote:2xjqjhre] When I said random I did not mean it in the sense that the changes are random, but more in the sense that life was not intelligently designed that it was not a planned event, that organisms by chance randomly came to exist. So forgive me if that sounded like a misnomer because it was not in any sense meant to be that. I'll change it just the same, so as not to confuse anyone.

They ungird their loins and call it reparation. They bark like dogs and call it reason. --Ontillas, On the Folly of Men [/i:1jvn1otd] [i:1jvn1otd]... and my soldiers, they say, make idols of their swords. But does not the sword make certain? Does not the sword make plain? Does not the sword compel kindness from those who kneel in its shadow? I need no other God. --Triamis, Journals and Dialogues [/i:1jvn1otd] [i:1jvn1otd]If all human events possess purpose, then all human deeds possess purpose. And yet when men vie with men, the purpose of no man comes to fruition: the result always falls somewhere in between. The purpose of deeds, then, cannot derive from the purposes of men, because all men vie with all men. This means the deeds of men must be willed by something other than men. From this it follows that we are all slaves. Who then is our Master? --Memgowa, The Book of Divine Acts [/i:1jvn1otd] [i:1jvn1otd]The vulgar think the God by analogy to man and so worship Him in the form of the Gods. The learned think the God by analogy to principles and so worship Him in the form of Love or Truth. But the wise think the God not at all. They know that thought, which is finite, can only do violence to the God, who is infinite. It is enough, they say, that the God thinks them. --Memgowa, The Book of Divine Acts [/i:1jvn1otd] [i:1jvn1otd]The Poet will yield up his stylus only when the Geometer can explain how Life can at once be a point and a line.

[quote="Incu-Pacifico":1xj76rt1][quote="Jamara":1xj76rt1]I agree. As I was typing up the qoute, it came to me that what is described of the Dunyain is from the young boy's perspective. This is how he sees them. Which is how the Dunyain work. They could have cried out if it were the shortest path, a lie. Because the next sentence after what I quoted speaks of them scaling the walls. So they weren't haggard enough to prevent them from scaling the walls of a fortress.[/quote:1xj76rt1] Another interesting question is why was Kellus's line chosen as the "special line" for the Dunyain's selective breeding? Presumably they'd been around years before finding Ishual and had already started their selective breeding program. Or maybe it was the case that Kellus's line of selective breeding was just one of many. Kellus's memory after all made reference to several other children. Did all these kids survive into adulthood? We know a lot about the Dunyain, but there's still so much we don't know...[/quote:1xj76rt1] From my interpretation of the Dunyain I wouldn't say that Kellhus' line was chosen as the "special line" however his line likely had more genetic benefits than others because of the Nonman ancestry and such. Also, I do not believe they had a selective breeding program from the start, I think in the beginning they were just a random non radical group of people who after experiencing the hardships and catastrophes of the Apocalypse decided to seal themselves off from the world and seek to accomplish their current goals. view post

There is the abandned Noman mansion (sorry can't remeber the name) which needs to be tied in as well in some way (Scott says he has something feundish planned for it) so perhaps Achamian will go skulking around there and find something he shouldn't.[/quote:to85zrg5] Im thinking we will see Akka either ending up in Atrithau, or in Scylvendi land, namely Utemot land, I seem to recall a certain mention of one of Cnauir's daughters in the Glossary of TfT, so I believe she will tie into the story in some way.

Seswatha (as Nautzera or Akka, I can't remember) tried to remind the Non-Man how "great" he once was, his benevolence, etc...I believe the scene was either in or before the chapter that opened with the poignant quote of Non-Men's only constant from their long lives being insanity, or something like that... [/quote:mwp81u1t] No, the man tormenting Seswatha on the wall is in fact the same man Kellhus confronted in TDTCB. view post

[quote="Phil":219hg30g]I remember another thing I wanted to ask, but forgot. Either in TDTCB or TWP (can't remember which), Akka comments that Kellhus is not one of the few, and so he doesn't need to worry about whether or not to teach him sorcery. Obviously, that gets overturned later on. So, what's the deal with this? Surely Akka would have seen straight away if Kellhus was one of the few. After all, they can see it in kids.[/quote:219hg30g] I think you might be referring to when Akk was considering how he might not even need to worry about it if Kellhus was not of the Few. However, I believe he tested Kellhus with the Wathi doll and found that he did need to worry. view post

[quote="Phil":28tg4bfs]I'm pretty sure that prior to this, probably in Darkness, he remarks that Kellhus was [i:28tg4bfs]not[/i:28tg4bfs] one of the few. It stuck in my head because I already knew the final outcome. I won't have access to the books for a week or so, so can't go searching.[/quote:28tg4bfs] Hmmm I'll have to check on that. view post

[quote:18x8bdyq]I think Kellhus, and the Dunyain are an abomination that I can only liken to something from Dune. Kellhus is the Quisatz Hadderach. God Emperor. Anyone see a similarity? Shit...I have not read Dune in many a moon. I think I'll read it again for the umpteenth time. That was a seminal book.[/quote:18x8bdyq] The Kwisatz Haderach was different because he was human and possessed feelings, hence why he could not continue the Golden Path as his son later did. The point is that both the God Emperor and the Kwisatz Haderach were forced to sacrifice emotions, for the Golden Path, whereas Kellhus does share these. Though not to say I dont see the other many similarities between Dune and PoN, such as the Dunyain and Bene Gesserit. view post

[quote="dirk69er":2opnn0tw]If you are going to pit Kellhus against anyone in the Dune Universe it would have to be Leto II the God-Emperor. He would be totally immune to Kellhus' manipulations and has more than enough intellect to match him otherwise. As far as fighting ability, pre-worm, he has Prana-Bindu training. As well as the Voice, so it would be more likely he could impel Kellhus to do what he wanted not the other way around. After the transformation, his body is near impervious. Only point blank range with a lasgun would even damage him. Of course there is his oracular vision which would allow him to predict pretty much anything Kellhus could even do. Not to mention that he is also a mentat. So Leto hands down.[/quote:2opnn0tw] Certainly view post

You know when I first read the title of this topic I was preparing to write a massive angry rant, and then I watched the video and sighed with relief. That video basically summed up what I've been telling my peers from the very beginning, yet they still admire him for things that have no reflection on his ability to lead such as being "young" and the first black man to win the Democratic nomination. view post
