A poll on souls posted 24 February 2006 in The Thousandfold ThoughtA poll on souls by zarathustra, Peralogue

As it has divided the board so much recently I have commisioned a poll to see what is the make up of people who believe that the Inchoroi creations have souls. view post

I'd go with option 2: They can gain souls in very special circumstances. Just a gut feeling, nothing I can substantiate with text evidence . . . view post

I went with option 2 as well. I think the Mandate Skin-Spy is the only example we've seen and I believe the creations of the Tekne to be inherently Soulless but Option 2 just seems to "fit" better for me. Liek White Lord said it is mainly based on gut feeling so to speak than direct quotes, etc. view post

I went option 2 also. It seems like the most reasonable expectation given Bakker's quote about the rare creature awakening and gaining a soul. view post

Wow, I never even noticed that my board rating did change at 250. I got all new glyphs and everything! view post

It doesn't make sense that only one skin spy could ever have a soul, but within the scope of the story I suspect we really have only seen the one- which isn't to say that we won't see more. It seems like something that will play a bigger part than we suspect in the next trilogy; exposing skin spy with a soul at the end of TTT seems foreboding, if anything. view post

What does the skin spy having a soul have to do with his ability to perform sorcery?

If a soul is linked with the use of sorcery, does this mean only the Few have souls (I don't believe this).

Or perhaps you can have a soul but not be able to perform sorcery, but you can't perform sorcery without a soul. view post

Not all with souls are among the Few, all of the Few have souls.

It is a requirement to have a soul to work sorcery, but having a soul does not mean you can work sorcery. view post


A poll on souls posted 13 March 2006 in The Thousandfold ThoughtA poll on souls by Edge of Certainty, Subdidact

I went with option 1...I think it's entirely possible that this particular skin-spy might actually be the soul of an Inchoroi bound to the body of a skin spy, I mean if the Inchoroi can bind themselves to a synthese frame, why not skin spies? Not to mention the fact that the skin spy was posing as Simas, a member of the Mandati Qurom...and since the Mandate is the only faction that had ever worried about the Consult's existance, maybe, for whatever reason, the Consult decided that the insight of an "old father" was required. Then again, I'm not entirely sure that Inchoroi have the ability to perform sorcery or have real souls themselves, in the sense of a being leaking through from the Outside...I'll have to check the book though. view post

There are only two Inchoroi left, Aurang and Aurax. In order for that to be true they would have had to be inhabiting the Skin-Spy the entire time, and we know this isn't the case. That and I have a feeling the Mandate definitly would have detected the presence of either, they are simply too powerful even when constrained by another shell, to not be noticed. No I think is is pretty clear from the books that the the Skin-Spy with a soul was just that, a skin-spy with a soul <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) -->

And yes the Inchoroi do have the capacity to work Sorcery, they learned the Gnosis long ago as their Tekne began to fail and they remembered less and less of it. view post
