Soul, no Soul...I'm the one with the gun. posted 22 Feb 2006, 23:02 by Cu Roi, Candidate

What I've drawn from the narrative and the glossary so far is that as far as this planet is concerned, only the Nonmen & humans have souls. That's why the Inchoroi are trying to drive them to extinction in order to seal the world off from the Outside. Since the Nonmen were rendered sterile and unable to reproduce by the Womb-Plague, that part is pretty much taken care of. So if that's the case then I'd have to go along with you and say the Techne is unable to produce creatures with souls, barring the occasional abberation/stroke of luck. It would even be undesirable to do so since it would let the Outside in. Some clarity on this would be great, as long as you don't feel it's a too concrete an answer for the tone of the series...or if it deals with themes arising in the next books. Wet our appetite a bit, Scott. view post
