  1. But RJ never described the link being broken. It is just left to the audience to assume the link must have been broken since Mat is still alive a year later.... In fact, Padan Fain got the dagger and kept it, so Mat never retrieved it to break the link! Or did I miss something?
  2. In one of the first books of the series, after Mat gets healed, he is told that his healing is incomplete and that the dagger sickness will eventually grow in him again. This is never mentioned again, and by the end of the book, instead of succumbing to dagger sickness, he appears to be immune to it. EXPLAIN!!! :-)
  3. When he was developing in the womb, he acquired a certain eyeball. Without a doubt, this was his most useful item.
  4. In my opinion, the SL/Mordeth "evil" is not so much a theological evil as it is more of an uncaring/unknowing/coldness like death. An absence of life. This can be viewed as evil by people who are alive, because they are rightfully frightened by it, but they would just be confusing terms. A lot of people in the books look at something they don't like and call it evil. SL/Mordeth's goal was complete cold - death - everywhere. This type of "evil" would be an oppositional force to the DO naturally, as much as it would oppose light. I don't think it would need to get its power from either the DO or the creator - it gets its power from the cold physics of the universe and the 2nd law of thermodynamics. See this article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heat_death_of_the_universe
  5. I haven't read this entire thread, but has anyone thought about Egwene's test for being Accepted? I know that the terangreal is more of just a dream, but the scene it painted was very vivid and I was thinking it could be a foreshadowing of a potential future. I was really disappointed when Egwene died, because I was counting on her leading the WT for many years, possibly culiminating in a real life experience of her "dream" in the accepted's test....
