Well, the Encyclopaedia is different from the Big White Book (BWB), which I'm guessing is what you own. It's far more accurate than the Wiki.

also just my 2 cents in not a theory just roaming thoughts. i did enjoy that twice dawning day thread but what im wondering is... what min sees is important A. min saw a viewing of three women weeping over his funeral bier so im not sure of him getting balefired but hey who knows. B. going off of the importance of the viewings she sees a kid in nynaeves and lans future(gaidal cain maybe maybe not) just conjecture but how is this important. C. who are the two women that will help him nyn moiraine<not strong without angreal > nyn cadsuane or maybe nyn olivia<sp> also was the merging of the two people in reference to him and ishy and if so how do they unmerge??? like i said just roaming thoughts. didnt mean to carry on.

Yeah, I considered that. But if his body is being burned, then why is he dead yet living on a boat? The explanation that makes the most sense is that the body on the boat is the one that was ripped out of Tel'aran'rhiod, and the other body is his dead body. But if he was balefired, then there shouldn't be a body. But then we have this dream of Egwene's, where she sees Rand's body on the funeral bier, but when she touches it, it falls apart like a paper puppet. I think it's significant that this only happens when she touches it.


Quote:
TITLE - Lord of Chaos
CHAPTER: 6 - Threads Woven of Shadow


She threw back her head and laughed, a trill of gay amusement, plainly too silly to see the implied insult. Plainly, as long as you did not know her. "Oh, Sammael, why would I let them see anything but what I want them to? I certainly do not send my pets to serve them. Alsalam’s supporters and his opponents, even the Dragonsworn, leave here thinking I support them and only them. And they do not want to disturb an invalid." His skin tingled slightly as she channeled, and for an instant her image changed. Her skin became coppery but dull, her hair and eyes dark but flat; she appeared gaunt and frail, a once-beautiful Domani woman slowly losing a battle against illness. He barely stopped his lip from curling. One touch would prove the angular contours of that face were not hers – only the most subtle use of Illusion could pass that test – but Graendal seemed wedded to flamboyance. The next moment she was herself again, wearing a wry smile. "You would not believe how they all trust and listen to me."
This is why it's best to disguise yourself without altering bone structure too much.

B. going off of the importance of the viewings she sees a kid in nynaeves and lans future(gaidal cain maybe maybe not) just conjecture but how is this important.
She sees a baby in a cradle in Lan's future, not Nynaeve's. Most think that this symbolizes the oath he took in the cradle, and it might have been fulfilled when he finally named himself king.

This gets discussed a lot (here is the active thread at Dragonmount), but IMO it's not one of the more interesting WoT discussions. It could be a lot of different people, but I vote Tuon. (If you're interested in why I think that, read the thread I linked.)

Consider yourself officially welcomed to Theoryland Fin!!! (Now... theorizing in the Noob thread...this one's a keeper )As I'm sure you've noticed, we have a pretty decent community of WoT fanatics over here. One of the ways that we keep it all friendly is a short list of courtesies we ask people to follow and, once in a while, actually do get followed. Imagine that! Insane people following some sort of order!


1) Don't flood the board with multiple THREADS all at once.
Allow us the time to absorb, evaluate, and discuss, OR LAUGH at one or two ideas, OR JOKES at a time. Some of us like to do a little research before responding and that can take a little time. Of course, we also have those others who are just a bit slow. Read that as "just can't handle more than one thought in their heads at once" or "dial-up modem". Your choice. I'd suggest "have a real life", but not likely. Does anyone still have dial up? Wow...it's getting hard to give the slow people an excuse

Addendum to 1) Try to stay on topic.
Going off on tangents can be super fun and is something we are all guilty of your's truly included but try and keep threads on topic unless, 1) the thread is dead or 2) the thread naturally moves over to another topic. This rule is much more lax for joke threads, pop culture threads...etc.

2) Try to back up your opinions & theories.
You'll get a lot more respect if you can. Quotes from the books (of which you CANNOT read too much) are your best weapon. Quotes from interviews are semi-acceptable. Gut feelings are pseudo-acceptable. Whitecloak blind-faith is best submitted while wearing asbestos panties.

3) Feel free to get as emotionally involved as you'd like.
Discussions can get very heated. But try not to take things personally. Remember: we only insult the ones we love. Or the ones we eventually hand over to the Trollocs.

4) Be respectful.
A lot of people have been around Theoryland for a long time. Being a Youngling means you're new around here. We do understand that you may have been reading WoT forever, but if you're gonna pick a fight regarding a WoT theory with someone who's an Elder, Ancient or Hero, understand that they've been around for a while now, and probably have posting friends. And Tamyrlin is Lord of the Board for a reason: this whole place is his brainchild. Keep that in mind. They also have posting enemies.... a good little bit of information to tuck away.

Addendum to 4: This is an international community.
In regards to the Non-WoT discussion groups, please respect the opinions of people from nations and cultures other than your own, even if you disagree with them or the policies of their leaders and politicians. Try to remember that not everyone here has the same outlook or life experience that you might. If you want to send a letter or e-mail to anyone in particular to indicate any specific moral, educational, intellectual, or genetic deficiencies they may have, feel free. Just please don't do it here.


Addendum 1 to Addendum 4: Please no angry profanity.
If you really need to tell someone off, be creative. And replacing characters with @$$ does NOT constitute creativity. I like tend to like the Shakespearean approach myself. The smarter and more subtle you are with it, just makes the person look that much more an idiot.


Addendum 2 to Addendum 4: Please be nice to Newbies.
We were all new at one time you are one right now and there is no need to come down on anyone for asking questions that to the elder community may be basic knowledge. This is for you to remember after you've been here awhile.


Addendum 3 to Addendum 4: Please TRY not to feed the Trolls.
Trust me, it ain't easy at times, but ignore the obvious instigators. Just sit yourself down between the Heroes and Ancients sharpening the WTF Couch sticks. There are many on the board who know how to deal with this breed, leave them to it. It can be quite entertaining. If things get too offensive to the population in general, Mods will intervene. We like to try and use enough wit to neutralize the trollies without help...

5) Please don't use the New Users Forum to recruit.
We have plenty of room in the other forums for begging for support for factions, theories, and the TCA. Please let the newbies look around for a while before taking sides in any pseudo-battles. ~do not feel you MUST click on Lordy's sig links and join just cause he's Lordy... it's not mandatory, butt shhhh! I did not tell you that!

6) Most important: Have Fun!
We do this because we love it and like to think that we are, at least, reasonably intelligent. Hell, some of us have deluded ourselves into believing that we've evolved into supremely intelligent beings! Half the posters here believe that divine supremacy has already come to them! My vote is for Frenzy, and myself, of course. You know the Truth when you see it. Don't let T and her massive bag o' quotes fool you there are always ways to fight back! With your on bag o'quotes of course!

We will assume some intelligence on your part. You found us, didn't you? Until you prove otherwise…and there are many who have, you'll be safe. If you get hurt if you do prove otherwise, I will offer my one free Healing…but just that once. After that you get to meet a special pair of chains, Mwahahahaa

Remember, you EARN your respect here, it's not given out freely and some may never know the pleasure.

Welcome to our little rounded corner! It’s a great time!

Enjoy!

I agree whole heartedly Zaela. I just enjoying knowing that im not alone in my enthusiasm for the series. In fact im currently in a re read and nearing the end of the shadow rising. i am moving at a slow pace and expect to finish the series in time for AMOL so everything is super fresh. as many times as i have re read the series i always catch things i didnt notice or previously ignored now i know nothing is really unimportant. i need to come up with a quote if i did my favorite in the book series is Paraphrased "Valan Luca would help capture the Dark One if the pay was right."
