I have been re-reading LFB, and the first few chapters are very enlightening. I have a few questions some of you might find interesting.

1. TC burns his second book that he is working on when he finds out he has leporsy then burns his copy of his best seller because he finds them both to be full of drivel. Question: Do you suppose that there is a connection between this burning and the caamora of the Giants who, by the way, happen to be great storytellers?

2. When TC is walking to Bell Telephone a boy gives him a note from the beggar (Creator). TC sees the beggar and the sign he is hold which says "Beware". Then
Quote:
"For an odd moment, the sign itself seemed to exert a peril over Covenant. Dangers crowded through it to get at him, terrible dangers swam in the air toward him, screaming like vultures. And among them, looking toward him through the screams, there were eyes - two eyes like fangs, carious and deadly. They regarded him with a fixed, cold and hungry malice, focused on him as if he and he alone were the carrion they craved. Malevolence dripped from them like venom. From that moment, he quavered in the grasp of an inexplicable fear."

Do you suppose the Land and our world are really so disconnected? The note the boy gives TC says:
Quote:
".......If he is defeated, he will die, and his world - the real world - will be destroyed because it lacks the inner strength to survive".
Does this mean that our world will be destroyed or TC's life will be destroyed?

As many times as I have read these books, it never ceases to amaze me at the different things that I find! Isn't SRD a wonderful writer?!!! Very Happy

Yes, SRD is certainly a gifted writer. We've talked about the note before in here somewhere, but it was before you came to The Land. Smile I think the destroyed world that was mentioned is Covenant's real world, Earth. But I'm willing to listen to other opinions. Any? Cool

And I still think the Land is the real world, but maybe it's just TC's inner world that will be destroyed according to that comment...

Caamora, I believe that our world would be destroyed as well. If not immediately from the snapping of the AoT, then over a very short period of time when LF hits town. He would definitely want to see to it that the world that had produced his personal nemesis would be destroyed so as to not have anybody else come along to kick his butt all over creation.
And here is another question that can be posed about that. Skyweir, in that other thread said,
Quote:
Just because something inhabits a different dimension to you doesn't automatically imply it's not real.
So the question that I have is one of science or metaphysics, I'm not quite sure which. That being if one dimension is destroyed, would all linking dimensions be destroyed as well? And if so, wouldn't that loose upon the cosmos a whole bunch of angry creators a huntin' for LF?[/quote]

I'd completely forgotten about that note.

It seems to me the "real world" would be our Earth/dimension, since the note was clearly written to Covenant, and to him, this is the real world. Even if he believes the Land is real, I don't think he ever doubted that his world was also real.

Or maybe he did. I don't know Razz

However, if that's true, that means TC is the only thing holding our world together, and that suggests it is indeed an internal reality of some kind...

Bah, i've completely failed to reach any kind of conclusion Cussing How unusual for Kevin's Watch... Razz Very Happy

I agree with you, Torhm.

Aren't a lot of top physicists theorizing these days about a multiverse, where there are infinate worlds, all branching off of each other in the time/space continuums? There was a huge article about it in the newspaper last week...somewhere on some world, the Cubbies just won the World Series, I know this in my heart...and somewhere maybe the Land or something like it exists, too...

Multiverse?! Pfhah! The Land real?! *crosses arms* I am the one word of truth, and what I say is...um, infinitely true...till, um, something so mundane and insane as, say, the Angels winning the pennant occurs.

*blinks*

Cussing

This MUST be one of the minor multiverses we are in, then!! Why, Diamondbacks, why?!
