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

That's the heart of my question. I understand the soul issue, and am not suggesting that the lesser animals of Earwa and beyond have any bearing on the world's relationship to the Outside. I was posing the question of whether other intelligent life in the universe--the Inchoroi or their perhaps annihilated brethren included--bears on the issue of Earwa's closure from the Outside. If the universe as a whole was contiguous with the Outside, that doesn't necessarily imply that it would be teeming with intelligent life, as ours doesn't seem to be. If the universe/Outside boundary is confined to Earwa, hwo would the Inchoroi have even known to come to Earwa, or for that matter even known they were damned?

I suppose this is an interesting question in its own right. How does the consult "know" what it knows about its own damnation? Is this simply a groundless belief? What evidence have we seen so far for the reality of damnation? It doesn't seem outside the realm of possibility that the Consult is just mistaken, as Scott has stated that they are degenerate (not in a moral sense, but in a sense of having once been greater than they are now). Did they come to Earwa "innocent" in a way of their "sins," and get converted by the Tusk? <!-- s:D --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- s:D --> view post
