Egwene's dream in TOM in Wheel of Time Books Posted July 27, 2011 This is the Dream that you are talking about right? “She saw an enormous sphere made of the finest crystal. It sparkled in the light of twenty-three enormous stars, shining down on it where it sat on a dark hilltop. There were cracks in it, and it was being held together by ropes There was Rand, walking up the hillside, holding a woodman's axe. He reached the top and hefted the axe, then swung at the ropes one at a time, chopping them free. The last one parted, and the sphere began to break apart, the beautiful globe falling in pieces. Rand shook his head.” I dont have my book with me but where did the number 7 come from? Also What is the sphere and what do the 23 stars represent? As to the Towers one, that is what i think as well.
