Author Q&A / Holy War
« on: July 13, 2016, 11:59:41 am »
So I'm wondering if you've done any background research regarding the Holy War (Inrithi-Fanim) in regards to RL Crusades and if so do you have any books on the matter to recommend because I realized I know staggeringly little about that period in history and would like to know more.

General Earwa / Nail of Heaven & the Golden Ark

So in all my reads of the series, I always figured Nail of Heaven was the poetic term for the World's moon. Reading the 1st part of history on Wertzone it was pointed out to me that it was a star and there are some theories regarding it. My own guess based on this info, that it was an extremely luminous stargate and the flare-up was it's activation that signaled the arrival of the Ark bearing everyone favourite party animals and probably not an insignificant amount of direct descendants of Keith Richards, Charlies Sheen and Gary Busey.

That said, how did the Inchoroi know Earwas was the world where it all comes together? Spin-off thought from that is that their ship didn't break down, but they attempted to use it an extinction level event orbital strike, but somehow miscalculated or there was a last minute intervention of the Solitary Gode that thwarted that plan and promptly put him/it to sleep and created all the demons Gods.

General Earwa / Gods, Gode & Absolute

So the Solitary God is asleep. Is he simply a unification of all the Gods or is it its own thing and the Gods his runaway demon slaves having a grand old time while it's asleep? The victory condition for the Fanim then would be to murder all the Gods by depriving them of worship (which is in doubt somewhat since apparently everyone is damned by default) and waking up the Solitary God by some superset union of all the demon gods. Also, since the Cish get their power from their feels, doesn't that mean Gode would be the agglomeration of all the feels and the Dunyain Absolute, based on the complete negation of any feels would be his direct opposition and the No-God, in fact the logical endpoint of the Absolute.

Gods/Gode being blind to the No-God, yet his brilliant sarcophagus was being protected by Chorae (themselves based on negation) always struck me as a bit odd. Mimara sees them as pure holiness, because they revert the World as it was, or should be. There is some kind of disconnect there but I can't put my finger on it.

Greetings fine wise men of the SA. I've been covertly mining this forum for years for thoughts on Bakker's works and have finally decided to join the strip mining of smarter posters than me for insight.
