PostForum: The Last Dark   Posted: Thu Oct 30, 2014 1:39 pm   Subject: To Zarathustra re: entropy
It occurs to me that if time travel (backwards) is possible then overall entropy could be decreased. I am a physics teacher. This idea interests me. Could this have a metaphorical meaning in TLC?

When I read TLD I experienced the sinking feeling that many on The Watch have expressed. About a year later I reread it, this time aloud, to my girlfriend. While doing this I experienced the story qui ...

While I would say that the changes you mention would make sense to have been instrumental in making TC prepared, this is not so easy to get from reading the LC (I found).

When I read the end of WGW ...

I agree with you. Even if TC were in a position to assimilate Foul at the end of WGW, SWMNBN would still be in the Land and it's my opinion that her release from within the Arch was a vital part of re ...

Possibly being worm food is like being Appointed, it's a constraint on the freedom that the Elohim crave which obliges them to become something less edifying but more necessary for the world to exist. ...

It has been asked why TC couldn't absorb LF at the end of WGW. I think it is because Foul wasn't weakened then, as he was weakened at the end of TLD by SWMNBN slapping him down, making him small and & ...

I think that SWMNBN was the Creator's heart. The Creator from earlier chronicles was the mind of the Creator, split from its heart. Foul's 'deeper purpose' was to trap SWMNBN in the Earth when the Arc ...

Thoughtcube, in my opinion you're on the right track. Others are entitled to their own opinions, of course, but I didn't want you face the opposition alone.

It's not merely a subjective opinion ...

Simanent, it seems to me that, in the Last Chronicles, Lord Foul whispered words here and there, and tried to get a whole lot of help destroying the Earth. He was defeated because Linden and Covenant ...

I am aware of the many criticisms of TLD and LC generally, however, I felt that LC could have ended in a way that would have made them seem very good (but that didn't happen).

My concept is that th ...

From the Creator's absence in this Chronicles, to SRD's frustration with Creator questions in the GI, I think it's safe to assume that he didn't like how readers were interpretting the Creator as a li ...

Publishers decision to make the book short was really unhelpful in this respect.

Do we know that this happened?

Personally I don't. Seems to be the consensus though.

If this is the culmination of all the Chronicles of Thomas Covenant, SHE has to be someone we've met before.
I vote for Osondrea. She was just a bit of a witch, if you catch my drift.
