  1. The Finns are said to feed on emotions and feelings, not memories, which is why they prefer channelers because the power augments feelings and emotions. This was said a couple times by Moraine, in various times throughout the series, most notably in ToM after being rescued.
  2. Again I suggest you read up on the q&a's as you are working without complete information. The only possible past life memories are the "Aemon" ones as I said. Why does Mat have no memories of the Tower or the Finns? If every memory he has is from people entering the tower or ta'angreals....he should have something. And why are his memories of generals and battle commanders i.e. not typically adventurers or people that don't go anywhere without an army?
  3. Tower of Genji point is debunked. The treaties do not extend to going to Finnland through the tower. The treaties exist with the ta'angreal doorways. If the treaties existed at the Tower of Ghenjei entry point, Thom could have went in by himself. And moreover, if Mat had the memories of travelers who went into the Tower of Ghenjei, he wouldn't have needed to ask Birgette about it as he would have already had a slew of memories about the place. The fact that Mat has no memories of the Finn's other than his experiences in the Ta'angreal pretty much spells it out.
  4. You're proving my point. There was the one true Aiel that lived in Rhudien before the current Aiel. And again, if no one goes through the doorway in Rhudien because non-Aiel are not allowed....how does Mat end up with wetlander memories, especially wetlander memories well after the breaking? Because the memories he gets has to be those of his past lives and not those of wetlanders who some how magically made it to Rhudien without getting skewered by the Aiel. Robert Jordan may have said one thing in an interview a decade ago, but the contextual basis changed
  5. Mat had no memories from Aiel. He should by all accounts have memories from Aiel as the ta'angreal was set up in Rhudien.
  6. This has been well established for some time. There is nothing you are bringing up that conflicts with RJ's answers. My theory is consistent with this..... Memories Mat received are not from his grandpa or great grandpa or great great great great grandpa i.e. his ancestors....they are from his past lives. His "soul" isn't bound by blood, which allowed him to live in many countries and many nations through time..
  7. The treaties don't extend to the Tower of Genji. See Birgette's story. The ta'angreal doorways are under treaties. If the Tower of Genji was under the treaty, Thom could have gone in alone and been fine.
  8. Rand is tied to the horn... > Interview: Oct 22nd, 1998 TPOD Signing Report - Pam Basham (Paraphrased)Pam Basham Regarding the Dragon and the Dragon Reborn (and Graendal's thoughts about Ishamael's musings): "Is this soul born in any other Age, or only at the advent and (theoretically, of course) the closing of the Third Age, as the Dragon/the Dragon Reborn?" Robert Jordan This soul is one of the Heroes, and bound to the Wheel, spun out as the Pattern wills. "It" is born in other Ages, but in a non-Dragon incarnation, to suit the pattern of that Age.Pam BashamIn the course of this

  10. It still exists. That's where heroes of the horn chill out when they aren't needed and history always repeats itself.
  11. Rand is tied to the horn... Mat gets spun out every 100-200 or so years to fight wars and battles. Mat can't be tied to the horn to do this.. Rand gets spun out every 3000 years or so as the Dragon. The Dragon as an entity is not tied to the horn. Rand/LTT not as a non-dragon maybe tied to the horn, but the dragon itself is not.
  12. I think it's because Mat is the Son of Battles. The Wheel will need Mat reincarnated when history repeats itself, so he can't be tied to the horn. It's like tying Rand to the horn. If Rand was tied to the horn, he couldn't be the dragon when he needed to be.
  13. Perrin is too teddy bear to kill his childhood friend. If Perrin tried to assassinate Mat, Mat's luck would probably have him find a coin on the ground and look to pick it up making Perrin's hammer swing miss as he materialized into the real world. Anyways, Aveindha's vision changed. So the future is still up in the air. With Rand's decision to make the aiel basically marshall's of the eastern held countries, the eastern countries probably won't bicker and will be more unified against the Seanchan. Plus, that dreamspike, only Perrin knows about it, so it will negate an
  14. Bela dying. If anyone other than Rand should have made it, it should have been Bela. She should have spent her twilight years in open pasture eating apples until she burst because she went through as much as many of the main characters. It would have been more fitting that Rand rode out of camp on Bela on the final page. That damn horse should have been at least a hero of the horn.
  15. I really liked Logain's glory. I was expecting him to kill Taim, as would be fitting. He was striving for power but learned in the end that caring for others carries much more power than a sa'angreal. It's a fitting end for someone who has been a punching bag since book 1.
