A question about NonMen TTT(semispoilerish) posted 10 February 2006 in Author Q & AA question about NonMen TTT(semispoilerish) by unJon, Auditor

Entropic, I guess I wasn't very clear. I agree that the erratics are different (and seek different things) than the Inchoroi. What I mean to speculate about was whether the Inchoroi also had problems about their minds not being able to contain their memories.

Option 1: by their nature or through the Tekne they have managed to enlarge their minds to the point that their long lives don't drive out most of their memories.

Option 2: Like the non-men erratics, the Inchoroi have the problem of having a bunch of memories forced out. For the erratics its the trauma that is left. What would be left for the Inchoroi? Since their minds are fundamentally different from the non-men what would be the longest-lasting memories for them? Moments of extreme pleasure in torturing and destroying others? Moments of intense fear when they come in contact with the Outside? Whatever it is, I imagine that if they suffer from "selective memory loss" then it would impact how they behave today. It would be different than how the erratics are but a similar phenomenon would be occuring with possibly predictable results.

I could (perhaps) see Bakker playing with this parellel in AE. Just my $0.02. <!-- s:D --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- s:D -->

Anyone have any ideas about my Inchoroi question a few posts down this forum?? view post
