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.
