Maybe we should start making a list of these.
This would be nice.

Name one thing besides your construct theory that proves Rand insane.

Interestingly, though his black coat was embroidered with blue-and-gold dragons that twined around the sleeves from elbows to cuffs, he did not wear the collar pins.

Oh, it is. Gonzo is, as usual, playing devil's advocate, in this instance. Also, there are lots of things that are obvious that people just don't get. Doesn't make those things any less obvious.

like the fact that the KC prophecy about kneeling to the crystal throne is "obviously" false

I'll ask you the same thing I asked WH - ever heard of a red herring?

I have. They are yummy with the right sauce.

While I will admit the possibility that you are correct in that idea, the possibility seems so exceedingly small as to be negligible....

I assume that you mean the herring is for us, the readers. I don't see hom the binding idea serves as a red herring for us. Under ordinary circumstances, red herrings have some strong emotional connotations and cloud an issue. The only idea that fits that bill is that Rand will kneel. *I* hardly care whether Rand does kneel to Tuon or not, but I could see how it would upset others.

As far as I'm concerned, she is already bound to him by Mat, it's just that none of the three realize it yet. If some further binding occurs, well and good. My issues with the kneeling are that there seems to be so much good evidence against it and it introduces complexity I don't think we need at this point.
