Very nice :)

Not sure I'd say nonmen have soft bones, but otherwise seems self consistent.

Hey Wilshire. Sorry you might be missing some of my meaning - after re-reading my post I can see it is not entirely clear. I will edit it.

I meant that Inrilatus was the difference. His soft bones were an indication of a throwback to his human lineage - I took it as Maithanet expecting his bones to be stronger. Therefore I surmise most of the Dunyain (excepting the known throwbacks) have Nonman genetics. The strong bones are due to Nonman genetics and not the other way around.

Ok well so far there seems to be two options for Kellhus and the heart:

1. Kellhus performed a miracle.
2. Kellhus has the largest anal cavity in Earwa - HITB

3. Moenghus was standing next to him using an invisibility spell and he handed him the heart.

I fully expect it to be something we will see explored through Kellhus next PoV - or at least I hope so. Some sort of Dunyain understanding of the laws of the Bakkerverse. Just wanted to have my own little pet crackpot.

Oh I see now, makes way more sense that way.
One of the other conditions of possibility.

Roamer, I think tearing a spare heart out would leave a mark. ;)

Maybe that is the example of Prophet healing we have yet to see!

I just wanted to post a fully formed and supported alternative to the HITB theory. On a serious note I fully expect it will be a metaphysical miracle brought on by Kellhus.

Locke has posted some interesting thoughts over on the other Forum regarding Serwe that seem pertinent to this discussion. Will extract some of them later today when home from work.

Some type of thaumaturgy, no doubt to me.

I went and read that and there is some nice tie in to things Bakker has said out of text, but as a whole I think it largely abandons the idea of what makes Dunyain techniques effective.
I tend to think that the political climate in 3C's makes the idea of the conditioned path to Shimeh via the Holy War acceptable.

Idk, "2 hearts" seems less likely than just having one heart and sticking it back in.  If Kellhus had just one heart, ripped it out, stuck it back, then it's quite a thing to talk about.  If he has 2 hearts, then there's the additional question of where that other heart went.  If anything weird happened with it, I would expect something from Proyas "The Prophet hefted the heart in the air and then chucked it at the Padirajah's butt which burst asunder in white light and pink flesh."
