Inchoroi Origins/Aims posted 17 February 2006 in The Thousandfold ThoughtInchoroi Origins/Aims by Mog-Pharau, Peralogue

It occurred to me as I was reading that the Inchoroi might not represent an entire species, but an exiled portion of one. Perhaps their brethren on whatever world they come from were as disgusted with them as the Earwans are. That would suggest an "Ark as colony ship" idea, but the problem with that is that the Ark crashed and killed 99% of the Inchoroi on board, not exactly a desirable design feature in a colony ship. I hope this is an original idea, and not something I gleaned from TTT. I'm too tired right now to flip back through the book and look for myself. <!-- s:P --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" title="Razz" /><!-- s:P -->

One thing I don't understand very well is why it is crucial that the Inchoroi kill Men to close the universe. There are at least two planets where life evolved, what about more? Does the conquest of Earwa represent the final stop of an eons-long war against every intelligent species in the cosmos, perhaps starting with their own (those who didn't agree with their philosophy)?

I originally posted this as a reply in the Author Q&amp;A section, and it doesn't really belong here because it's simply rampant speculation, but it also contains what is possibly a TTT spoiler regarding the motivations of the Inchoroi's war against Men. view post
