PG I think that's an assumption a lot of people make, including myself. Might not really be the case though.

LOL I hadn't thought of it any other way until I read .H.'s post above.

Yeah, I probably took one leap too many with this one, folks.  I was thinking (wrongly) that the No-God closed off the World to the Outside.  But there's no textual justification for that so it's more likely that the No-God is an expedient way of creating the conditions under which the Outside can be shut out.

There's nothing to see here, move along... ;-)
That was my assumption too before this thread. I told myself not to make any pun is any series disscusion thread but... Can I move ashort?
“The thoughts of all men arise from the darkness. If you are the movement of your soul, and the cause of that movement precedes you, then how could you ever call your thoughts your own? How could you be anything other than a slave to the darkness that comes before?”

Despite more than 10 years ago being pretty sure the No-God was little more than a tool, multiple Bakker posts to the effect, and my persistent thought about it, I never realized the disjunction between that and thinking that the sealing and the No-God were somehow one until I posted that...
“I am a warrior of ages, Anasűrimbor . . . 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.” -Cet’ingira

What could we accomplished with 20 years in this wilderness
One of the other conditions of possibility.

I wonder how many other things are probably somewhat obvious but that we have built on simple misapprehensions and so end up in the wrong place...
