although I do find merit in the notion of symbolic resonance. The worm is the world's demi-urge for destruction that is necessary to it's life. Qwelling that urge is part and parcel with restoring the world. I just don't know how much I equate the state of the covenant/foul relationship with the state of the world. Covenant and Foul were the least unified early in the story, and the worm was resting sweetly. They have become more unified each Chronicles, with the Last Chronicles being the last step. Or so I take it.


They aren't mutually exclusive.
Loosely/analogically as
the White/Wild is the structure/physics...and the Worm/other beings are the biology/life.
Despite all that's happened we are, in an essential way, still engaging with Plato's Perfect Horseness and All The Lovely Horses.

the hyperbole is a beauty...for we are then allowed to say a little more than the truth...and language is more efficient when it goes beyond reality than when it stops short of it.
