A nerdanel is a local term denoting an intricate crackpot theory.  I'm sure Madness can direct you to the thread where the etymology of the term is more thoroughly explained. 
Welcome to ye btw, Ganondorf.

Someone else explained it very concisely but I didn't find it in my cursory searching. So I offer this one in meager substitution.

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.

Side issue: I hope we get a reveal about either old Moe or Kellhus using a pervasive network of 'turned' skin spies, have been spying on Consult for ages.  I'm thinking Moe might be particularly adept for this since he had all the extra time and the markless sorcery-neuropuncture know how combo.

Could be a double feint!  Consult completely aware that their skin-spies have been infiltrated, use this info to feed Kellhus/Moe false intel.   :P

Lol this is how a lot of the mysteries are being explained here.

I feel like everything ends up like "He knows they know he knows, but they don't know that he knows they know he knows about them knowing"

A feint wrapped in a mystery shrouded by an enigma.

Lol, Kellhus and Aurax both meet in the end holding a rubber chicken each.  "But I thought, you thought, I..." they both say at the same time.  Then they laugh, hug, and make out.

I will forever remember Key and Peele's wisdom when I ruminate on Moenghus the Elder's thought. This is what he must have seen in its thousandfold depths.

Any dip into the probability trance between two opposing Dunyain would look something like this.

Inrilatas and Miathanet come to mind.
