the 'to hold their hearts' bit would make a bit more sense for the actions that happened in tSR though, which might be a bit of a hole in this idea. It's possible that Rand is wrong, but from a literary point of view it would make more sense, much like the Eye of the World, that some devices have already served their purposed, in this case the prophecy you're reusing, and that what's yet to come we don't have much of a hint at.

It would be very Jordan-esque to have a diversion that like, but somehow it doesn't feel quite like a diversion/red herring.
