Lol. Imagine finding two contrarians on a Bakker forum ;).

Eden was never all that attractive to me. Neither for that matter was bowing in the presence of God for eternity - I still get goosebumps wrestling with that idea (mostly for the forever and ever variable).

However, it most certainly harkens (yeah, that's right) back to an ancestral memory of ecotones where as many as six different ecosystems overlapped in different places around the world - we've actually been partially responsible for the destruction of diversity in regard to their historical existence (big surprise). Probably even lots of snakes...

There should be sarcastic brackets.

Lol, no. I thought at 6ish this morning that harken was a hilarious word - I tend to socialize outside of our Second Apocalypse niche. Not by choice. There are very few people I meet up that rate this caliber. Normally, people in my environment might say "what?" to a word like that.

"What?" is a perfectly good response to "Harken!" if you think about it. ;)

LOVE THIS THREAD!!!  Going to have to go along with the idea that the IF is some kind of 'compulsion machine.'  Perhaps the inchoroi at some point long long ago realized that their quest would be unfinished unless they possessed absolute devotion to their cause?  They create the IF to propagandize themselves and now no one is the wiser.

It will be neat if we see the judging eye and the IF agreeing, but if they disagree, which one is the standard to measure the other one as false?  Is there a third thing?  Kellhus gonna look in dat thing and get the ITCH.  He was already so vulnerable to possessed Esmi...

Very cool image, pilgrimfoto. 



I mentioned this on the other site, and it might not mean anything, but I find it interesting that the first prophet Angeshrael supposedly became "the burnt prophet" when Husyelt told him to bow his head into the fire as some kind of demonstration of faith or something.  If the Tusk came from the Inchies, I think it is potentially a parallel to their faith based on peering into the IF. 

I don't have any theory or anything.  Just an observation, Isaac-fucking-Newton-style.

A little left over sentimentality from their past... I can dig it.

throw in kellhus seeing-flame while we are at it!!!

god knows why...they are all in league!

is this what kellhus uses the anagogis for?  An analogous fire for seeing through?  I bet he could make a vary niice dragon.

Lord knows what the IF is, but it would be the kind of thing that could undo dunyain conditioning--turn a dunyain against the dunyains.
