What are the roots of the Inchoroi's prophesies? Not including the fact of their damnation which doesn't seem like a prophesy so much as knowledge.

Off the top my head the major one is the idea that if you bring the population of a planet (or maybe only the right planet) down to 144,000 ensouled creatures, then the way to other side will be shut off. The Synthese also says something about how all of the prophesies must be observed, even the false ones.

This feels different than their attaining knowledge of the other side and damnation. I can conceive of ways they might accidentally stumble on to that knowledge through exotic technologies (through whatever the inverse flame is). My theories are probably wrong but I can wrap my head around the possibility. In that case they have discovered a simple fact of their universe.

The specific goal of reducing the population to 144,000 to shut out the gods has something personal about it. It doesn't sound like something derived from analysis or produced by a computer. The fact that they reference prophesies points a similar direction.

Can you give us some hint of where these prophesies came from? How did the godless inchoroi get a hold of these prophesies long before they came to Earwa?
