  1. I thought Rand was just using his ta'veren state to manipulate the world around him to counter the blight the Dark One creates as He's arising from His prison. Rand, the Dragon, just brings balance so that the Pattern does not unravel under the "only-evil" pressure the Dark One applies on the world. When Mat asks him whether he's singing and says he recognizes the tune of a common song, Rand just tells him to be quiet for he just wants to trick Fortuona into thinking he CAN Sing, like the Ogier, while he's just using his ta'veren "ability".
  2. I hardly see how the Creator could be Good and Evil, since He consciously imprisoned the Dark One for being pure Evil. He is just the Balance that allows the Pattern to weave following His schemes. Balance is beyond the mere human view of things as being bad or being good. Plus, every human is good and evil made flesh. No one is just good, or just evil (perhaps safe for Padan Fain...), since Rand showed when fighting the DO that a world ruled only by the Light will be as terrible as one only ruled by the Shadow (their versions of good and evil). Humans need their own free will, the right to
  3. Oh, my bad, then ! I was certain once he recovered all his memories from being Lews Therin, he recovered the ones of all his precedents lives but yeah, hundred years is quite something !
  4. But when Rand, aka Dragon Reborn, sealed the DO once again, he was something more, he was ta'veren, he was the most powerful channeler of this Age, he was Lews Therin Telamon and all of his precedent lives so that he indeed reached for the purest form of Power, the True Source where somehow all the Five Powers mengled to become the Light So, because he was something more, he could achieve the channel or manipulate or have access to something that was more than the original Powers : Light.
  5. Well, that's what I figured as well ! Rand, when outside the Pattern, saw all his friends being in grave danger and he desperately wanted to help them, but then Egwene - dead already unfortunately and I personally hate Jordan for her death - stopped him doing so. But, yeah he rescued Lan somehow..
  6. I talked about it with a friend of mine, and he thought that Rand, since he has known the world with the point of view of the Creator, since he has seen the threads of the Pattern and manipulated them, then he gained over them a certain kind of power, which joins pretty much your idea, Agitel. This, or else he has gone mad because the body of Moridin had been soiled with True Power as the presence of saa witnessed but that seems too much.
  7. Prophecies have however proved themselves to have deeper meanings. The mere fact of concealing one's weaves, should it be with saidin or saidar, does not make one as being able to fulfill such a sentence. You're making me doubt, yet...
  8. Then, what of this "weaving without weaves", because Demandred was obviously weaving the One Power during the Last Battle, with the assistance of a full circle of 72... But, if Robert Jordan wished to let this remain a mystery then so be it, I guess... We shall be free to multiply theories upon theories..!
  9. Some would argue that it is the beauty of the thing, that we are now free to make our spirits wander here and there, let our imagination figure this out the way we want it to, but NO. It is admittedly a pleasure to imagine all sorts of solutions, to ponder theories after theories but at some point, it just gets frustrating. Like, really. I see no other way to go out of this but insanity...! This particular point is outraging !
  10. I totally get that point of yours, but I however cannot drag myself into accepting it. I mean, Rand, as almighty as he'd be, is not the Creator and thus should not be able to touch the Pattern. When he fought the DO, he was indeed OUTSIDE the Pattern and could then manipulate the threads themselves for he imagine them as such. Nevertheless, once he reintegrated the world and then was a part of the Pattern, I do not think he'd be able to manipulate It anymore. Saying otherwise could lead to the maddest ideas, he could manipulate the livings as well as the dead ones. But, hey, I guess you a
  11. Channeling the True Source as a whole would be convenient, but I cannot help but think that cannot be. I mean, the True Source is clearly made of two opposite yet complementary forces known as saidar and saidin, male and female. I hardly see how he could have shattered such a principle that ruled the world for so many Ages. As for shaping the Pattern as he wills, it is but a heresy, somehow, aha. Rand is not the Creator although as he fought the Dark One he created worlds from what he wished the world to be. Also it is really tempting to believe so, I really do not think it'd be the answer.
  12. First of all, I would very much like you to be a tad bit merciful towards my grammar and spelling since I am not a native speaker. Then, let's get to the heart of the matter which I assume has already been discussed on, but I could not find it in the Forum. I suspect all of you have already finished AMoL, not to say devoured it from beginning 'til the very end of it, and found yourselves horribly frustrated with the end Robert Jordan & Brandon Sanderson chose. So, here's my question : Rand, whose soul has been reincarnated - or transfered - into Moridin's body, appears to not be able to
