    I attended the book signing in Pasadena, also. It was Halloween, so I'm the one who was in the long Turkish coats and gold cap.

    Question

    A man asked if the Dark One can resurrect anyone after death.

    Robert Jordan

    RJ answered that, yes, the Dark One can resurrect any soul, but probably doesn't want to bring back someone who hates him.

    Question

    Another man asked about Siuan's Talent of seeing ta'veren. Was she able to see them after she was stilled?

    Robert Jordan

    No.

    Question

    Could she see them after she was Healed?

    Robert Jordan

    Yes.

    Question

    So, if the ability to see them was based on the Power, what about the Ogier Elder who knew Rand was ta'veren?

    Robert Jordan

    For Siuan, yes, for the Ogier, no. The Ogier was able to see (or feel, I can't remember which RJ said) the Pattern shifting around Rand.

    And another asked the usual question about his writing day, to which he gave the usual answer.

    Question

    Another man asked if Cyndane is actually Lanfear, even though she denies it?

    And RJ laughed, and said RAFO.

    Robert Jordan

    Then RJ explained that all the men in his family are strong because the women kill and eat the weak ones, and he wanted questions from women.

    Ursula

    I'm sorry, but I faded out at that point and don't remember those questions.

    Ursula

    When I got to the table to get my books signed, I asked my question.

    Ursula

    Why is there no religion?

    Robert Jordan

    RJ answered that most religion is people meeting to affirm their own impressions and reassure each other. In a world where the miraculous happens every day, religion is not really needed. And there is no Book. And I said, so you didn't write any, and RJ said Yes.

    It was great, and I really appreciate the chance to talk to Mr. Jordan, even for a moment.

    Cheers, Ursula
