Hi all, I too am new to the forum. I just completed TTT, and have spent some time thinking about it and pondering many of the questions brought up here. My primary responses to just about all of it, though, are along these lines. There seems to be little discussion (at least until the start of this thread) about the veracity of religion in the Three Seas. Is it, like on our world, primarily a tool used by the powerful to subdue the weak, or is it (at least in Bakker's mind) a representation of true sprituality. (Incidentily, I don't want to give offense; I consider myself to be deeply spiritual, and accept all forms of expression of spirituality as valid. My issues are with organized religion, which, by and large, as I stated before, is a tool of the corrupt powerful.) The tone of the novels seems to indicate that the religious systems are basically corrupt (The thousand temples), and the existence of different hierarchy of dieties (Inrithi, Fanim) and heathens (Scylvendi, etc.) suggests that the people of Earwa are, like us, just trying to find an earthly way to understand that which is not of the Earth (or Earwa), and are failing at doing so. The Mandate, with their knowledge of and belief in the Inchoiri and their otherwordly origins seem to have the best start at grasping what lies beyond their worldy confines. Anyway, dont want to get too long winded w/ my first post. If someone wants to respond and make a new thread of this topic, that would be awesome. Down with Kelhus, up with Akka. view post

Quick adendum. I posted this entry on this thread b/c thinking about quantum mechanics always leads me to origin of universe theory, which leads me to God (or whatever is out there), which leads me to my own spirit. (Guess this is sorta my version of Akka's map :wink: ) Just a quick clarification. view post
