General Earwa / The Blasphemer's Guide to Blaspheme
« on: August 26, 2014, 04:00:58 pm »
And with this post I complete one and begin another of my many dreams.

This is the consolidated monstrosity of most of the relevant content discussions of R. Scott Bakker's The Second Apocalypse on George R.R. Martin's Westeros Literature subforum over the past decade.

My thought for this thread is that we might come together as a greater fandom of two forums and suss out the wisdom of the Westerosi Bakker noosphere a la A Song of Ice and Fire's The Heretic's Guide to Heresy.

I will slowly begin to go through the below threads to see if I can find the general themes, arcs, etc, of our collective descent into delusion. I will perpetually update this thread as I can and as others (hopefully) participate in my mad endeavour.

It is my hope that following or during the completion of this damned journey, I might find volunteers to aid me in writing a version of HERESY 100 for The Second Apocalypse.

Also, I will be removing/adding threads from this list as I figure out which ones are not speculation on content specifically. I know I missed a few in my endless search. As well, for instance, the Neuroscience, Humanity & Some Occasional Bakker as well as the Bakker and Women threads are debatable inclusions as are any review, preview, or recommendation threads.

Hi all,

This is MG's brainchild to imitate the Westerosi threads. This week's topic, just like any other week, is anything and everything!

Have fun, kids!

Hi everyone,

This is a subforum for any and all questions, no judgement, spoiler-conscious (as much as possible).

The question at hand should be indicated as much as possible in the thread topic.

All responses to OP that contain TSA story spoilers must be tagged and indication made as to which book(s) your post might spoil - this is to be new member friendly as much as possible.



Amended the spoiler conditions in lieu of geography and climate discussions ;).

[EDIT Madness: This thread is to serve as an introduction to new readers who find their way here as a result of our disseminating efforts via the "Who are the Dunyain?" bookmarks. Feel free to post accordingly.]

General Earwa / TSACast (SA Podcast)

EDIT (Jan 23/15): Hi all.

New, hopefully very last, update on TSACast link:

EDIT: Hi all. The link that seems to be working for everyone is:


But now
... And again... iTunes link ;D:

Original message:

Hi everyone. I realize this is premature and that "Podcast" is a title to refer to audioshows speficially released via iTunes system (which hopefully this and future episodes also will be).

However, Episode #1 is coming 8). Pretty proud of our discussion and considering that I'm listening to it for the second time since we recorded last night I'll say it's pretty entertaining.

Just getting it cleaned up a bit (if it needs - as there are a couple moments of technical difficulties).

Content is coming ;D!


And I will make two notations now:

- A couple questions... - White Lord/Zombie Three-Seas thread I mentioned.
- I know I'm wrong about the time frame of the TPB comment concerning Ishual being done in Ch. 1 (I said two months ago but it might have been closer to the original Ch.1 Excerpt release - I will endeavour to find it).

I remember the Russian Meteor video getting posted twice with the notation "Ark Crashing."

I saw this today and all I thought of was the Ark's Well of the Aborted.
