  1. I think we got a big hint during the Dark Rand period, when Rand demonstrated and ability to affect the pattern through the force of his will, e.g. Tuon having to resist agreeing to Rand's treaty. While Dark Rand's ability to affect specific changes in the pattern does not seem sufficient to seal the DO outside the pattern, a combination of the wills of the three Ta'veren could be enough to fix the hole in the pattern. Specifically, and in outline form, here is my opinion of the method used to defeat the Dark One: 1. Rand breaks the seals, removing an obstacle to the reformatio
  2. Ok, so I've posted this before in this thread, but no one seemed to notice, but after doing some more research, I think it warrants considering: In chapter 56 of The Shadow Rising (Book IV) we are given a PoV of a defeated Fain leaving the Two Rivers. He says (on page 942 on the paperback) that he is taking his remaining darkfriends to Tar Valon, "But Caemlyn first!" We next see Fain already in Tar Valon in the prologue of The Fires of Heaven, with no hint of what he did in Caemlyn. We know that Fain can have a corrupting influence wherever he goes, so it seems important to consider what
  3.

I might have some of my fa
  4. So, as I was walking home today, I realized something shocking; we could see tanks at the last battle. By tanks I of course mean motorized artillery pieces created by combining that dude from Rand's school's steam wagon (which has completed a journey to Tear by KoD) with Aludra's cannons. I don't think this is a huge leap, as I recall Mat saying he'd want two horses to pull his cannon carts, and Rand is aware of the pulling potential of the steam wagons. Plus the people involved with construction of both these devices are pretty ingenious, and its not much of a leap from "Let's pull the
