Could be that the fact that the psuhke (how do you pronouce that btw) leaves no mark because it has no verbal component and is therefore not "shaped" by human thought and remains "pure", kinda.
Yeh, and I don't see it as being limitless of more powerful than sorcery either - my emotions work better when they are shaped by reason at any rate.[/quote:25sx5gdq]

I liked Kelhus's explanation myself, which was that by remembering from more angles it made it indistuishable from the Gods own work. Think of a sculpture. Ok so a "normal" person sees the sculpture from head on but has no depth perception and tries to reproduce it. It is crude because it is only really a 2-D representation with little depth or definition to it.

Now we take another person, who has full site and gets the change to see the sculpture from the fron and sides but not the back. Their copy is much better and from head on is almost indistinguishable. In fact if person one looked at the sculpture to them there would be no difference because they are not attuned enough to notice the differences.

Then we have a third artist, who gets to see the whole thing from all possible angles. Their copy is indistinguishable from the original to everyone who sees it from the work of the original artist.
