  1. Taim was still interacting with Rand just fine when he had his sheild up. It didn't effect their conversation at all. But it might effect their ability to shake hands or exchange a sheet of paper. It's also possible that the shields aren't mobile. But it seems strange that the Aes Sedai don't ask more of these types of questions. They are not very innovative with the One Power. but we know Aes Sedai dont try new things with the power until the wonder girls showed up. So i think it logical that they would not try new things like this but i think Asha'man will find things out like think and then maybe Aes Sedai might be able to work it out
  2. so i resubscribed on itunes and it still is not downloading it shows the episode but gives me an error when i try to download it
  3. the title of this thread needs to be changed to Wheel Theory 101 haha
  4. I think you're taking the Wheel metaphor a bit too literally. yea the wheel is just what churns the threads to make pattern. its all about the pattern to me or the age lace
  5. but why, what makes you think this or is it just a crazy theory (and i use crazy with all respect haha). I just really don't understand what you are trying to say
  6. Yes, but Rand also wove super-deadly anti-Shadowspawn only wards around the Waygate at Shadar Logoth. I understand that he decided that he lacked the time do it to _all_ the existing Waygates, but it seems epicly idiotic not to do it to those located in major cities under his control. Particularly since Moiraine demonstrated in TEoTW that it is possible for channelers to break through closed Waygates. The other option would be quite omnious - namely that even Rand's wards aren't unassailable. I thought the reason he did that specifically at Shadar Logoth was because he would not be able to leave anyone in that city to guard the gate. Although I agree that there is no reason he couldn't have done this at other gates as well. Especially since he sent an Asha'man was Loial. He could have shown Karldin the weaves and had him do this everywhere. yea i find this stupid, he used that waygate i dont understand how to ones in side cities are not priority number one
  7. Well for one thing each age mirrors the others in certain ways. For another there are often records from previous ages that may mention yet-earlier ages. Also, as mentioned, there are Heroes of the Horn who are spun out again and again and have a recollection of their past incarnations. One could even conject that since a given age 'n' can't possibly be exactly the same as its repetition age 'n+7' then time must be linear after all and the Wheel is just an abstraction. As well ask whether the Pattern exists if you ask me. It may just be an abstraction that helps people understand their lives in the fabric (there it goes again) of society but for all intents and purposes, in the scale of any given person's life, it may as well be taken as true. didn't Moiraine say that the "n+7" ages were not exactly alike but if you were standing in a hall with the patterns hanging on a wall they would look the same but if you got close you could see the slight differences. Its not that things happen the same but that the pattern is the same if everything was the exact same you would not need Taveren to get things back on track
  8. I assume that Byar was compulsed. I seriously doubt he was a darkfriend. Its possible, but unlikely. He hated Perrin already, and Graendal just took advantage of that and made it so that no amount of convincing would change it. he could have been corrupted by Fain, Elidia got so much worse after being around him and Byar was with him longer wasn't he?
  9. not like this, i think there is a quote somewhere from RJ saying in some ages channeling is lost and then is discovered in another age. The dragon is not "reborn" in that sense of the word in each age. Grandeal said that she had never heard of someone specific being respun by the wheel as Lews Therin is reborn as Rand. Lews Therin was not "something reborn" he just was the champion on the light. I'm not saying Rand's soul is not respun in each age it might be but i do not think Rand is respun in each age if that makes sense.
  10. Not exactly. The horn tells us there are beings from previous ages (still during the same rotation of the wheel) who still exist in Telerenrhiad (however the heck you spell that) though their bodies in the real world are long gone and dead. Those heroes of the horn are not from a previous turning of the wheel, but a previous age in the same turning. but Artur Hawkwing says "...I have fought by your side times beyond number....The Wheel spins us out for its purposes" when he was called by the Horn. So it seems in TAR they remember everything and have absolute knowledge of the wheel. Hmmm. Interesting point. At least, it's interesting to me. If someone else comes along and says you're dumb and that I'm dumb for thinking it was interesting, and it's wrong because (...) then I say screw'em. I think your post makes sense. hahaha

  12. and all i'm saying is there is no reason to belittle people; just link the answer, link the past thread, or tell where the answer is. If someone asks a "stupid" question just click off the thread no one forces you to read all new threads or respond to them.
  13. but things like the horn, when used, tell us there is a wheel
  14. It makes me wonder if it's just an angreal (or was it a sa'angreal? I can't remember). It seems like an odd request - "Please give me an item of Power that I already have access to in the real world" - I am willing to bet that Moiraine could locate an angreal or three if she needed them from the WT. No, I think there's more to this bracelet than a simple enhancing of Power... otherwise it seems like a god-awful request. Are people's memories REALLY this poor? Seriously??? The angreal in question, which Moraine is now using, is one which she took from Rhuidean. She laid it out on the wagon the night before she went through the gateway at the docks of Cairhein, and it was being used by Lanfear at the time, which is the reason she was able to so easily handle Rand during that fight (along with his unwillingness to actually kill a woman). I'm pretty certain Moiraine actually stated that she got it was a result of one of her requests. I recommend you examine your OWN memory and re-read the relevant chapters. No, it is the one that Lanfear was using at the end of FoH to hurt Rand/Aviendha/Egwene. Moiraine was able to keep it as one of her requests. It's described in that chapter as well as a man bent backwards with his arms and legs tied together. And we know that no two angreals are similar (until the dream ones that Elayne makes that is). Moiraine even says that she hated it, which makes it even more curious as to why she would ask to keep it. About that bond with Lan, I don't see why a death needs to be involved. For all intents and purposes, Moirane died to Lan as soon as she went through the door way and his bond was transferred. He would just assume like everyone else that she died. He just says something along the lines of "she's dead, I can feel the new one now, I must go". The shock of seeing her fall through the door and it going up in flames and having his bond transferred to another was enough for him to just assume she died. Also I think it would be a bit lame for her to have to waste one of her requests on something like that. its on the cover of the ebook, so she had it before going in the doorway
  15. That makes sense... merchants can charge a little more than they usually would for the things they sale and pay the taxes fopr the wool and tobac using the extra gold. agreed
  16. and... are people new to the forms are supposed to know every thing that has been written or discussed on here, that kind of attitude drives people away from posting, when people jump on them for having a thought they have not heard before i don't care how many times i see Olver is Gaidel Cane, its just more people posting and joining the discussion
  17. So does anyone think that team jordan told tor when making the cover of ebook 5 that the bracelet would come back

  19. is it a problem for anyone else that rand did not have that waygate closed. He sent Loial and the eldar haman to close them why would he not do the ones inside the cities first then the other ones it just does not make sense to me
  20. You ought to have tried reading the Glossary in, say...Eye Of The World? Or any book up to Lord of Chaos: That or looked at the symbol that appears on every map in the series, the title page of every book, at the beginning of many, many chapters and at the end of all of them. You know: that Wheel thingy. With the seven spokes? ......................well..........but..........you got me, i admit i never looked at that entry. But, to use the picture as a reason people should know there are 7 ages is a little weak. yes that is why it has it but to expect the average or even the above average fan to figure it out just by the picture is a little much. There are a lot, i mean a lot, of things in this series and even some one who is on their 3rd read through, me, can miss things. and fyi none of my friends who read the books have any idea about the 7 ages per turning thing
  21. i think wolves are different than other animals in this universe. I think they might have threads since we see they are making a choice to fight in the last battle and we know they are not mindless animals. I don't see a Narnia thing where all the animals of the world turn up for the last battle i don't think the stag or the ravens have souls to be respun.
  22. Birgitte also mentioned that death for the Heroes in Tel'aran'rhiod is permanent. i always took it as that if something that has died and is waiting in TAR dies then they are dead forever ex. hopper or if Brigitte or another hero of the horn were killed in between respinning. I think if a live person like all those people who died in that awesome fight just die normal. I think someone who dies, who has a thread in the pattern, in TAR just dies but if that person is in "limbo" TAR dies, since there is no thread to tie off, is dead for ever...FOR-EVE-RR
  23. i think what everyone is overlooking is that the OP is calling the Dark One the great lord of the dark....Darkfriend!!!!!!!!!!!!!
