Tho it makes sense, do we know for fact that seswatha and the dreams will remain now that Akka has renounced his faith? And when the dreams chaged, isn't is possible (in theory) that perhaps the dreams were never accurate to begin with? perhaps Seswatha purposly corrupted the dreams to reach some other conclusion or perhaps to trick the Mandate into guarding the Gnosis?

Not to say seswatha was evil, but perhaps just not completely truithful?[/quote:1ppyrrkk]

A most interesting point. We have been shown the dreams, for more than one time, all the way up to the firing of the Heron Spear (I think it's safe to use the word &quot;fire&quot; rather than &quot;throw&quot; <!-- s:wink: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=":wink:" title="Wink" /><!-- s:wink: --> ) -- but never the event itself. Why? The firing of this terrible weapon of light must have been spectacular for a people who have never seen such things before (all other such weapons were used up in the war between the Nonman and Inchoroi). Even more magnificent and certainly memorable would have been the destruction of the No-God as a result of the firing. So why did we never see that?

Why, indeed, in the last &quot;showing&quot; of the dream, things seem to take a horribly wrong turn as the Heron Spear was never fired? What really happened?

It may be all coincidental. But perhaps not. Is it by chance that this last strange dream for Akka takes place after the encounter between Kelhuss and Seswatha? Remember the spinning knife? We know the Dunyain are master hypnotists: Kelhuss is described as having &quot;scraped away&quot; Serwe's memory of rape. So it seems he did something similar here: it seems all Mandate Schoolmen underwent some very deep hypnosis procedure during initiation, but Kelhuss manages to loosen or even break the hold of this hypnosis in order to learn the Gnosis.

Once that hypnosis loosens its grip, is it possible that some deeper, truer memory might surface?

The study deepens, father. <!-- s:wink: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=":wink:" title="Wink" /><!-- s:wink: --> view post
