  4. Actually a really interesting theory, but Lan was suffering the effects of losing his Aes Sedai. The fact he was suffering from that means it wasn't her simply releasing it. His new Aes Sedai was bedding him and stuff to try and keep him alive. I feel RJ made a mistake with Moraine having the bond transfer. She told Lan about it in book 2, it would of made more sense for her to do it after going through the doorway and entering Rhudiean.
  5. Did Moraine intentionally fake her death? ie, the bond didn’t break, Moraine passed the bond before she launched herself at Lanfear. Lan was unconscious so he wouldn’t have noticed. And no one else would have either. She may have known she had to convince Rand not to come after her and her apparent death was the easiest way to accomplish it. Moraine may have also know Nynaeve needed Lan so she could have the wherewithal to help Rand.
  6. Is RJ/BS saying that a man can heal himself if he is mentally ill?
  7. Actually when Reading of Rand shielded I learned something new that changes things vastly. When Women link, the person leading actually loses the total she can draw. Siuan was using women linked, so she only had a fraction of what the ten women could channel independently. That fraction may have been large (9/10) or small (3/10) but it is probably somewhere in between. But when 6 women shield a man, they don’t link. All 6 independently shield the man, that’s why there are 6 points and if a woman leaves, she ties off her own weave (at one point Rand had three knots holding his shield). None of this answers the multiplier effect of the saangreal. I agree Nynaeve may have been wrong, but how far off can she be? Also this was before she reached her own max. Say Nynaeve attained her max some point before fighting Moghedien.

  9. You can carry water in a metal bucket, or a plastic bucket, or a glass vase, or a ceramic jar. You could scoop it up with a wooden spoon, or a glass bowl, or even a hat. Just as there are a lot of ways to do the same thing in mundane tasks, there are a lot of ways to do the same thing with the Power.
  10. Remember that there's also a fountain in the city that presumably gets water from the lake.
  11. Just because she thinks it doesn't mean it's true. Character POVs are not objective truths. In addition, we don't really know how the Power stacks up. Two women Linking does not double the amount of power available, it only makes the circle somewhat stronger than a lone channeler. However, being stronger means being able to do more things, things you couldn't do before. That's why angreal and circles are useful. A circle of channelers can easily shield an equal number of unlinked channelers, but if the unlinked channelers attacked the circle from different directions and in different ways, the circle would have a difficult time fending them off, since only one person can control the flows. So we really don't know how much stronger Nynaeve is compared to the other AS, and how much stronger the circle + sa'angreal makes them. I know there is a ranking listed in the BWB, but those values are not necessarily on a linear scale. For example, is Rand, who is rated 100, only 1% stronger than Demandred, who's 99? We really don't know.
  12. Thanks. Are you aware of any site that has compiled a list (with sources) of what each state is actually doing in plain-English as well as the exact wording used in legalese? Side Note: Apparently Legalese isn't actually slang.
  13. Ohhhhhh, ok that makes sense. I started reading chapter 12 at the beginning of a reading session and didn't make that connection. WAY over thought that one, thanks guys!
  14. The "Aes Sedai" over in Seanchan were also described as backstabbing, power hungry where alliances were constantly changing. The ones over there never took an oaths. So Luthair, who already distrusted Aes Sedai, had good reason to see there people collared. So some can argue what he did was bad, but others could argue he did what was needed to be done to stop these power hungry people from using the power like that.
  15. In this regard, we have a Ban on Machine Guns. Assault Weapons and Rifles are still legal. If we replace Abortions with Guns. Conservatives want to ban all Guns. (All Abortions) While Liberals want to keep only Machine guns Illegal in most cases. (Only non-medically required Late Term abortions are illegal.) As an aside. Did your fact check site mention anything about states that would punish people for getting abortions in other states?
  16. I didn't say it took a lot of time, Just that I had to scroll several pages worth of material down just to see actual posts from the guy and not retweets.
  17. Last week
  18. @SabioI'm pretty sure the Aes Sedai who were collared thought the Seanchan were pure evil and the female channelers Luthair took at the beginning of the conquest.
  19. Yeah but if we were literally talking about a ban on all guns it wouldn't matter if you called something a machine gun, assault weapon, an assault rifle or a one eyed purple people killer. You want it banned regardless.
