But, if it's a collective consciousness, then it had to come from somewhere? The universe itself? That could be considered an "always was".
Well, maybe?  But not as I see it.  Bakker has likened Earwa itself to a mind.  I don't presuppose it always was.  It was once it was.  Before that?  Well, who knows.

I guess if we want though, we can consider something like a panpsychism argument, which is all well and good, as far as it goes.  The key though, to me, is that it isn't just consciousness, whatever that is.  The key is the self-consciousness which critically is human consciousness.  And, critically, that is what Earwan spirits are self-consciousness "objectified" in the sense of somehow being "external objects."

Like Sci usually bring up, the cosmology of Earwa is a sort of monism, it is all just different "parts" of the same thing.  There is no "separate" realm of the Outside vs. the Inside or the Real.  It is all just different relational parts of the same "system: Earwa."

I honestly thought of "someone's mind" when I read that and I hope that it's not. St. Elsewhere already did that and wasn't appreciated. "It was all a dream" is usually seen as a negative.

Borderlands 2: Lillith DLC. Will be playing Borderlands 3 shortly and that will be for months, I'm sure.

I'm watching this YT video:

That song seems to be pretty new. Please tell me they're actually against that. Interesting that they're quite mysterious. Might check them out. Been around for years.

Really Toll The Hounds. Started strong, but then almost immediately hit a little snag.

Man, I was about #teamSansa (I honestly still believe that she is a better ruling Queen than Dany) until she basically dismissed the sacrifices that DANY made. For slaves/change in Essos and for the North. She was on the field FIGHTING. I still do love Sansa and always will, but right now, I feel the way about her as I felt about Proyas when he was nasty to Achamian. It'll pass though and I'll be more rational. Especially since I'm most likely mad at the GARBAGE WRITING and taking it out on her. :/ That being said, I'm fine with Northern independence as neither side needs each other at all. Not anymore.

The only thing is that the Iron Islands had wanted to same thing and Bran being who he is probably knows that the Kingdoms will divide again. Probably knows that maybe Dany will be back. Drogon took her somewhere...maybe to Kinvara? What happened with Dany was bullshit. >:(

I've heard about what happened, and it WOULD have been satisfying if the writing wasn't so damned sloppy and well, forced. Honestly, Bran wouldn't be a bad choice at all because I think he would be unbiased and very hard to shake emotionally, if at all. It helps that he as the knowledge of the Three Eyed Ravens.

The one good thing was Drogon melting the throne. The Dany fans are certainly angered. It almost made me turn on Sansa, and I've always liked her more than Dany. Yoiks. Still, Dany was done dirty. I want the Night King back, damnit!

At least #No one sits on the Iron throne technically won. That's the one I voted for! LOL!

I just keep thinking CONTRIVED! CONTRIVED! CONTRIVED! No one is thinking! GAH!

Cleganebowl was excellent though. That was the one good thing. Felt ZERO for Cersei/Jaime. I would have preferred it if Euron was the one who got away.

I miss the Night King. >:(

Oh, and those who've read Reaper's Gale will know what I'm talking about
(click to show/hide)

Makes me wonder if D/D read Malazan and if they have, STAY AWAY FROM MAKING IT INTO TV!!!11

This is me after everything:

I have yet to see Episode 5, but I have seen the leaks and the ones I feared the most turned out to be true.

I heard about that too and I'm actually inclined to believe it. And then, there is this(SPOILER):

So there really was a Starbucks coffee cup on the set. Wow...I didn't notice.

Well, I saw the new episode today. I'm all over the place, TBH. It should be obvious that Cersei doesn't care about the people and that she wouldn't surrender. Cersei should have known that NO ONE in their right mind would surrender to her. That parley was POINTLESS. Then again, a lot of them are.

Jaime is making no sense. No wonder the actor was asking the writers what the characters motivations were!

I'm gunning for NO ONE sits on the throne. NO ONE. Gah. I need to unpack me fee fees before saying anything more. TBH, maybe I'm ambivalent about Dany because I see a little of myself in her.
