I think he was giving us a clue that sheep will become holy in TUC, just like storks.

I looked back to see if I'd written this (and I see lockesnow had written this) but I do feel Bakker's referring to the way Men who worked to beat food across the Plains for the Ordeal to survive. The fact that it references a future point as Duskweaver and I were discussing probably refers to the way people fanatically adopt cultural datum and mutate.

But damn, the Nerdanel of this thread goes to:

Quote from: Duskweaver
So, crackpot theory time. Kellhus is using careful application of extreme experiences to turn the Ordeal itself into the awakened God of Gods: a gestalt soul capable of self-awareness.

(Corollary: the Consult used careful application of extreme experiences, enhanced by the Tekne, to turn a bunch of captives into the No-God: a gestalt mind incapable of... well, actually, I'm not entirely sure what Mog-Pharau's cognitive impairments are and I'm hesitant to label him non-self-aware.

The Corollary is also insightful and in line with aspects of conversation Curethan and I have had.

I'm probably jumping onto the Psukhe-is-Thaumaturgy train, and by extension that could put the Aporos somewhere else I suppose.

I think all sorcery is inevitably going to be revealed as Kellhus has said in TTT: all is Thaumaturgy simply wielded properly (a la Cishaurim, maybe, Titirga closer?).

Psatma and the Warrior might as well be extensions of Yatwer's Will at this point.

Damn, better start applying your advice about reading the thread before posting again...

Is 'Nerdanel' Bakker terminology for... I don't know, troll or something? (I was serious btw)

Also, Nerdanel was a forum poster on Westeros who disappeared from posting sometime after TJE came out. Nerdanel had the most outlandish theories. Now Nerdanel has become synonymous with our nerdanels :).

It's like Marklar.

Well, as the legend goes, Nerdanel was an individual on some old forum who always came up with crazy (and elaborate) theories. Though this person has since disappeared from our community, their legend lives on. We've taken to naming our own crazier crackpot theories as 'nerdenels', though feel free to ignore this practice; 'Theory' or 'Crackpot' work just as well.


BTW don't bother trying to read every post before you post. There might be 2 or 3 people around here who have, but that isn't and shouldn't be the standard. Post whatever, wherever you think it fits in. If everyone tried to read everything before they posted, no one new would ever say anything.

I don't know... Whenever a person gets banned or disappears from a forum, my first instinct is not to ask "why did they leave", but to start looking at new members to try and figure out what that person's new handle is. I mean I wouldn't be surprised if Nerdanel was actually among us now or on Westeros and posting innocently from a new alt.

Lol didn't even see Garet Jax's post above my, roughly 11 minutes before I posted. I swear that wasn't there when I posted.....

Who's looking for anyone? We are talking about nerdanel(-s, -ing) not Nerdanel(proper noun)... Though I have read a post or 2 of people lamenting the loss of the latter.

I did no such thing?

I think Nskoghar was referring to Nerdanel's absence from Westeros?

Lol - from inbox to outbox, outbox to inbox the rumours flew, until truth became lies and lies became truth.

*Psst* I heard Madness ate Nerdanel's liver with fava beans and a nice Chianti. :o

If all sorcery is damned, would the Aporotic schoolmen be damned? Is restorying the world to the way it should be a damnable offense....
I doubt the Aporetic school was capable only of producing chorae. A school implies a whole host of teachings, not a single usable technique.

That doesn't answer the question though. I think the School would be dedicated to the negation of other sorcery. If it all turns on the same mechanism as the chorae, i.e removing sorcery without leaving a mark, then I'd guess that it wouldn't damn the users...
