so you have never watched stargate then?

at least this makes some sense out of those myths not old men with snakes in their heads did it while fighting little grey naked dudes for control of the galaxy:)

Mah'alleinir (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mjolnir).

I took me an embarassingly large amount of time to actually get that. Like, at least half an hour after I read it did I figure it out.

The Fourth Age (World) (http://books.google.com/books?id=kSY4AAAAIAAJ&lpg=PA238&ots=XRqtMoFT2y&dq=popol%20vuh%20fourth%20world&pg=PA238#v=onepage&q=popol%20vuh%20fourth%20world&f=false), The Third Age (World) :cool:

How about them, Four Ta'verens (Four Suns), 11 Stars Constellations Constants (Immortal Gods)? :)

What's this text called?
Popol Vuh. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Popol_Vuh) It can translate into English to mean: 'The Book of Community', 'The Book of Mat', 'The Book of the People'.

Who is Mat? Matrim Cauthon.
Who is the People? The Da'Shain Aiel.
Who are Mat's People to be? The Da'Shain Aiel.
Where is one area Matrim Cauthon & Valan Luca each need to go to in AMoL book? The Aiel Waste. Rhuidean. Cold Rocks Sept's Hold.

Ever catch WoT's 'Animal Farm' allusions? Or WoT's 'Anthropomorphism (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anthropomorphism)' allusions?

Or what is an anthropomorphic symbol of Rand al'Thor?
A Black Lion. A 'Black-Maned Lion' harassed at Valan Luca's Circus. A Black-Maned Lion collared like a Plowman is to a Mule, plowing a field.

The Plowman L.T.T. created the Isle of Tar Valon in TEOTW Prologue, an event in parallel to the tale of 'Gefion creating the Island of Zealand' in Denmark (See The Prose Edda).

Who is Faile's character in this Popul Voh and Meso-American mythology?

A Were-Jaguar, a Nagual (Shapeshifter). Or a Were-Toad, in meso-american mythology. A Toad Mother.

Joline Sedai is one too: a Were-Toad, a Were-Jaguar, Toad Mother (http://books.google.com/books?id=ZMaNSreOS5wC&lpg=PA149&ots=grCbLi7VRx&dq=Jaguar%20Baby%20or%20Toad%20Mother%3A%20A%20New %20Look%20at%20an%20Old%20Problem%20in%20Olmec%20I conography&pg=PA153#v=onepage&q=Jaguar%20Baby%20or%20Toad%20Mother:%20A%20New%20 Look%20at%20an%20Old%20Problem%20in%20Olmec%20Icon ography&f=false). The Olmec mythology's Toad Mother is a type of Earth Goddess motif, a symbol of Death & Regeneration. (Ila's character is an Earth Mother.) The Toad is also mentioned in Creation Epics of the Miao/Hmong People's found in Vietnam and China. Also see 'Frog Kings (http://www.pitt.edu/~dash/frog.html)' folk tales.

Faile's character is a part of the biological Felidae family (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Felidae), which includes Lions, Leopards, Jaguars. Felidae (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Felidae) Suborder (Cat-like) is part of the Carnivora Order, an order which includes Caniformia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caniformia) Suborder (Dog-like). Take Bayle Domon's character, he's part of the Caniformia Suborder symbolically as a Bear, in the Wheel of Time series.

Many Wheel of Time major, minor characters in the series, have both Animal and Plant based anthropomorphic symbols. One example, is Elayne's personal signet of a Lily (a part of the Rose Family of Plants), and to the White Lion of Andor. Anthropomorphism is found throughout WoT. Metamorphoses is what WoT is all about.

Thus, Elayne and Rand's twin unborn children are the procreation of Black and White Lions.
