Well, yeah. In the prologue of TDTCB one of the first things they do is to burn the grand vizier's books and chisel the sorcerous runes from the walls - they have rejected the gods etc, which is different from not believing in them.

They seek to master that which lies within the circle of the world, only by isloating themselves from the polluting influence of the rest of the world (and that includes the consult) can they achieve this. Their conectedness to the outside and the physical world is important - they need it in order to access the logos - but they isolate themselves from the viramsata that walk the ground of other souls by their isolation. That is Moenghus' sin - that he pollutes their sanctuary with the Thousandfold Thought by sending his dreams.

The world being closed would end their quest I think - no more eugenics, no more viramsata, nothing new could enter the circle and the enlightened soul they seek to produce certainly would be able to step outside the circle of the world.[/quote:2xlaquv8]

I don't see the Logos as having inherently anything to do with the Outside, it seems to be more... real world/logically oriented than anything.

There may be alternatives to natural breeding programs like the Dunyain have been doing if they were to side with the Consult. After all the senior human Consult Sorcerors are over a thousand years old.... view post
