Of course, given what we read in the first two books, a skin spy should not be able to pose as a sorceror anyway; even in the novel this skin spy is represented as a rarity among rarities, and his inclusion was very disappopinting.[/quote:18jnobdk]

It was specifically mentioned as an aberation, and an aberation we would be glad the Consult never seemed to be able to duplicate. Personally I think it adds that much more depth to the metaphysics of the world, and shows that as always, the world of TPON is not cut and dry. Like the real world, there are always exceptions to the rule and more shades of grey than all of the colours of the rainbow.[/quote:18jnobdk]

I replied first in the other thread to which you just replied. If you accept the aberration, how do we know that the Consult can never duplicate another Simas? How do we know in the next series of novels that Kellhus/Achamian/Nautzera etc. are not aberrant skin spies that turned off the principles? view post
