Can the Flame of Tar Valon create people forward in time

Recommended Posts

So I've been thinking about the Flame of Tar Valon weave and what it's effects.  We know that it and balefire are opposites.  Well, if balefire destroys people before a particular moment, would it be logical to surmise that the flame might be able to create a person ahead of that particular moment?  Could it transport them to a different age or even a different possibility.

Well they're not really opposites, it oddly only seemed to harm bad people and it didn't seem to bring any of the people the bad guys killed back.  If it was the opposite then it would have the same limits, it would all depend on the strength of the power used as to what happened.  Balefire works because it removes something that had already occurred, the pattern can't add something that has never happened yet.  Flame of Tar Valon IMO was the dumbest thing added in the series.

I think the Flame Of Tar Valon was a weave that stopped balefire from destroying the threads of the Pattern past their deaths. Instead of zero summing history like balefire does, it generates a time lock. That locks everything those people did that were destroyed by balefire; it essentially shores up and anchors that history that balefire destroyed. The physical aspect of the weave was off putting entirely because the people it turned to crystal were all restored by balefire and M'hael was crystallized because he restored them.

I see it differently.

the flame had two properties.
one:  When two channelers setup for a Voldemort/Potter faceoff, the two beams of power cancel out at some point between the two of them until one overwhelms the other. This is unique as presume that any other weave pointed at a balefire beam would be consumed immediately regardless of power, and the balefire would cut right thru and destroy the victim.

two:  When balefire strikes anything, that object ceases to exist prior to the strike. This is described as the weave loosening. What that means precisely is not clear, in scientific terms, imagine the energy used to create the universe and as the universe expanded from that original singularity, space-time was formed. The destruction of space-time may cause a local singularity as distance no longer exists in a local area and all matter collapses. Presuming this creates a small blackholes which evaporates in seconds generating hundreds of kilograms of antimatter, without doing the math, that may destroy the planet. So long as Egwene gets there in time her weave can reverse the looseness of Space-time, and prevent the entire planet from being broken.
