Who protects Mimara? A genuine force for good? It says when she's looking through the Chorae that oblivion is the skin of a deeper light - do the Inchoroi, Nonmen, Dunyain all get caught on this void and its preceding levels because of their deficiency of spirit?

The big question is: even with all this depravity and horror and evil, is there a bona fide transcendent, supreme God/principle looking out for Mimara?

I don't know that It is looking out for her best interests, per se...

The question for me still remains is the God of Gods the same as the Solitary God? Moenghus the Elder and the Vision both speak of the God of Gods as sleeping and the mission to wake It.

If the God is sleeping, maybe the Hundred are its dreams and nightmares.
Know what your slaves believe, and you will always be their master.

It certainly seems, via Mimara, that there is a deeper truth under all the bullshit interpretations of everyone else.

I think there is a single deity out there in Earwa, but I don't think any single person or religious sect has the whole truth figured out. It's likely a combination of all of them, imo, though how much of which is difficult to say.

It may actually be physically impossible for a component of a system to entirely comprehend the system it's a component of. There's some talk about it in sciences relating to cognition. Neurology, AI research, etc.

If the Hundred are archons, then Mimara saw the Pleroma/One True God
