One too many TAR connections

In ToM ch.30 "Men Dream Here" Hopper says that all souls connect/come to TAR as "all connected to here" (which might be how Rand's mother was there at the end of tEotW and explains how DO can poses any dead soul if he wants to). Interesting that DO has access to all the dead, so it comes to reason that he has real and tangible connection to TAR, even now while in prison.

 

Another part of the same chapter has Perrin see in TAR the storm that seems to be representing DO directly and the shadow of Rand (those he is not dreaming). We know that Rand is connected (kind of) to DO through Moridin link, so again DO presence in TAR seems to be evident. In addition, the storm and the wind that Perrin sees does not completely duplicate the real world and seems to be more, which is the first time that I remember that TAR is not copying the real world but instead the real world is imitating TAR. Again, DO presence is very strong.

 

Considering all the other ways that TAR is connected to the world of the dead (The Horn, wolves) it again appears that DO is present. Other connections, such as Lanfear and the fact that she released DO in the first place (did she do it through TAR? who knows) and Slayer's abilities only indicate to the DO presence again. In addition, the whole "unseeing eyes" and entering in flash leads to evil only adds to this.

 

We know that DO's prison is outside the pattern (or at least that's what we are told) and SG is only a location. We also know that TAR is one constant that connects all the parallel worlds and we know that there is one DO for all these worlds, just as there is only one TAR.

 

At this point I guess you see where I'm going with it...

 

I propose a theory that the LB will take place directly in TAR with Rand in it (and maybe even others present, like Aiel and their "waking up" thing). Dragon's blood must be spilled at SG but there is nothing that I recall that specifically says that the LB (and here I mean Rand vs. DO) will take place there. Furthermore, I think that either TAR as a whole, or more likely, some fundamental part of TAR is the DO's prison which was created by the Creator at the moment of creation, thus explaining the Horn and the rebirth issues, as well as TAR being one true constant for all the worlds.

 

This might not be a new theory and if so I throw my support for it. (I've been more absent that present lately rolleyes.gif)

Well to me it sounds great. but it is possible that rand spills his blood then goes to TAR because like briget whom relived many lives reborn again and again rand is part of the patern an most likely dwelt in TAR awaiting his rebirth. so we see that briget was torn from TAR and came to life. SO it should be possible for rand to die and be brought back through this method.

There is the to live you must die business. If Rand is a Hero of the Horn, he will be dumped in TAR. Moggy showed that it was possible to rip a soul out of TAR and bring it back to life. Nynaeve was present and though she didn't see the weaves, she knows it's possible, she's as strong/ stronger than Moggy and a better healer. So she may puzzle it out. That makes it very likely that TAR plays a very important part in plot resolution.

 

We also know that SG cannot, so far, be reached in TAR - in fact, the Blight (whole area) cannot.

But that could change. So it's possible I guess that the fight/ confrontation between GLoD and LTT-Rand takes place in TAR and at SG.
