Author Q&A / Re: Unholy Consultation - *SUPER SPOILERIFIC*
« on: December 15, 2017, 06:19:56 pm »
Well, I'm not Bakker, but I'll give it a shot - the "un-mutilated" mutilated could well pose "superior" as he/she/it appears unharmed ( will refer to as "he" heretofore for ease of conversation ). But then again, maybe not - could be a lot of things:

  • He was easier to trap/subjugate
  • He was an inside man ( we have zero details on the approach to the Ishual battle/war, could be Consult turned one of them before going in )
  • Could've been one of the first engaged and was surprised, so was subdued before he could escape
  • He could be Shae
  • He could've been re-architect-ed with Techne
  • He could've surrendered serving as a poison pill ( and could still be acting in that capacity )

And the list goes on. Interesting that the most fascinating battle/war was barely covered as a recollection ... any additional detail on that conflict along with more insight to who/what the mutilated are in the next books will be butta for me.

But I can't imagine any Nonmen remaining with the Ordeal are going to appreciate that practice.

Don't know about that - Cleric started the practice and perhaps sacrificed himself to Akka knowing he would need "him" to continue to Ishual. Me thinks there's more to quiri than the objective benefits - some connection occurs for which non-men may not consider a violation or disrespect, even flattery that humans still need/rely on them.

I'm a simpleton, just pulling from something cool/fun to read - no expectations from me.

I don't how you Can't get that from his answers and the question. My perspective, I mean. I can't see it any other way, that's just me though.
I originally interpreted that post of Bakker the same way you do, but now I also see that it can be interpreted to mean that the No-God existed previously and served the purpose of reducing any living population to the 144k, and so without it the Inchoroi of old needed some cruder methods of committing genocides. And lo and behold, the Womb Plague.

I honestly can't tell which interpretation is more likely considering the information available, so this is probably the point when we find ourselves requiring additional clarification from Bakker.

I summon and he returns! Missed you, SL!

Before all of this rich discussion - I had the (mis)understanding TNG was was part of the plan all along ( i.e. was used in other worlds ). But I agree with Wilshire, they probably ( were all told ) every world they eradicated was special per his point.

Now after reading through all of this, I see hints/evidence from Baker, et al that either could be possible. Even the original insertant reference could be stretched to still refer to someone from Earwa before NC ... by all appearances, to me, it seems TNG was used throughout the galaxy, it broke on its way into Earwa with the "original insertant" no longer living, they repair TNG and then find a lucky candidate to power/use it. A big question is why NC and Kel resembled those candidates. Just random luck? Someone goosing their souls on the way in?

Oooh, aaah, pretty! Wish I looked that cute. Yeah, happiness is for suckers ... sign of a shallow mind.

Happiness is awareness of reality. Nietzsche ( at times ) beautifully expresses components, such as happiness is the feeling power is growing inside you - but there's more.
Conversely, unhappiness is the feeling that an Alien is growing inside of you. ;)

I don't know - that could tickle  :D

Hmm, think I'm getting lost with the recent comments ( which is quite in character for those of you who know me ). Are we saying that if the world is "shut", the remaining denizens won't have a soul anymore ( ergo, p-zombies )? I just thought the souls would be "trapped" on Earwa - where else would they go if they couldn't reach the Outside?

I think the underlying message is that whatever that means, a tall glass of beer with sort it out either way.

Statistics are great. Using statistical correlations to "show" blacks are inferior is not great.

Statistics can be "ok" when used properly, but unfortunately they are mostly used for propaganda/manipulation.

This has definitely not been my experience with statistics. I'm sure you'd like The Undercover Philosopher, Tao.

The less aware, the higher the manipulation  ;D
