"The Judging Eye . . . You will be furious when you realize how little I know . . . I tell you this because I truly know very little. The Judging Eye is a folk legend, like the Kahiht or the White-Luck Warrior, notions that have been traded across too many generations to possess any clear meaning . . . But I do know . . . that the Judging Eye involves pregnant
women . . . Perhaps because of the profundity of childbirth. The Outside inhabits us in many ways, none so onerous as when a women brings a new soul into the world . . . those with the Judging Eye give birth to dead children . . . The Judging Eye is the eye of the Unborn... The eye that watches from the God's own vantage . . .
'But I've had... had this... for as long as I can remember' . . .
But things are tricky where the Outside is concerned. Things do not... happen... as they happen here... I'm just saying that in a sense your life has already been lived
- for the God or the Gods, that is..."
- WLW, p. 89-91
Most of those are . . . segways (what is that punctuation actually called?) past description or Mimara's angsty responses. Mimara's one neccessary contribution to our understand is in the apostrophe's. Otherwise the ... are just Mimara and Achamian doing their best Shatner impressions.
Also, this is from Mimara's perspective, though everything quoted is Achamian's dialogue.
Edit: And I believe that's the only clarity we get on the subject because of Bakker's skillfully played addiction narrative - he basically has an ironclad excuse, in my opinion, for Achamian to keep acting out of character from the first four books, making it so that Achamian's perspective isn't clear enough to gives us the Authorial thoughts we're used to from his character.
