Is Achamian the No God? (TWP, pg 12)... posted 22 April 2007 in The Thousandfold ThoughtIs Achamian the No God? (TWP, pg 12)... by Gravity Gun, Candidate

Let's simply admit this outright: Bakker has constructed the perfect mystery. We just have not the slightest clue what the No-God is. Upon re-reading TWP, the haunting words of the No-God has somehow managed to baffle me even more -- it's something that cannot see itself yet is desperate to know what itself looks like. Far from some battlefield boasting ("Mwahahahaha! I shall smite all you puny humans down and rule the world!"), the No-God asks these utterly incomprehensible questions before being cut to pieces by a laser cannon.

On a related note: Lokung is No-God, right? So the Scylvendi are also traitors to humanity, right? But why would they follow the No-God? view post
