  1. NBA 2017: Playoffs? Playoffs?!

    Truly, I don't see how this is even debatable. A superstar caliber player in basketball can have a significantly bigger impact on the game than in any other sport that I can think of. The only other sport that comes to mind where one individual can make as big an impact is soccer.

    Funny, that you say that what he says is false and what he thinks is true. That would align with my thoughts that emotions drive Kellhus. In his mind he think how if Esme would die, "His heart would crash to ruin..", in his convo with Moe. But, in WLW he tells Proyas that, "Love is for lesser souls." So, yea, by your line of thinking Kellhus truly did return to Momemn to save Esme and what else he could salvage.

    Well, yea that's a great point. But, I think we'll be surprised in TUC as to what Kellhus is actually after and how his thoughts are interpreted, more clearly. Here's the quote I think is relevant to the teaser.

    Well a lot is contradictory I seem to think. Read that chapter in TWP and tell me it doesn't remind you of "Pick a point....any point" (borrowing that from another poster). Well, when he talks with the soldier about the dead girl Kellhus explains how seeing is separate from witnessing. Paraphrasing here, but when one makes a judgement on what they see then that is witnessing. I'll see if I can find the quote.

    When we was discussing it at SA, those sections in TWP also Kellhus talks a lot about how everything is connected, every soul that is. Reminds you a lot of Koringhus's so-called revelations. Makes me come to the conclusion that Kellhus deduced the same things as Koringhus. But, unlike Koringhus he wasn't absolved of sin, basically the JE is what spurred the Zero-God and Koringhus's "leap". Mad Max, great movie. Never would have got the reference though.

    ? I'm not getting the reference.

    There is a lot in TWP, I think chapter 10 about how witnessing is different than seeing. Kellhus has a convo with Akka and a soldier who seen a dead girl and it bothered him. Also, the Imprompta is the collections of sermons gave during the Holy War by Kellhus.

    Yea, even though OKC lost the series I feel vindicated. Because, the exact argument I've been making for Russel to be the MVP just played out in front of all of us. He's got a shite supporting cast and the arguments over usage are pointless, because he has to do what he does in order for them to have a chance.

    Bakker did say there was a right way to believe or worship, so to say. And the whole nations would be damned, I figured the one would have it right. Zeum worship their ancestors as a way to avoid the 100 altogether. And true, I do believe that the magic damna them, but they don't use it as a means of power. It's like Zeum has stayed hidden from everything. I'm sure I'm wrong, it's just a thought relating to Serqe being a cipher.
  10. Bakker XLVIII - Selected to LEAD not to READ

    I think the Zeum might be the only nation that isn't damned. If we go by Serwe is a cipher for the series, look at who she worshiped as a slave of the Patridomos, their ancestor list. Zeumi do not worship the 100 and their magic involves using totems to give their user power, sounds shamanic in nature, no? I wondered why Kellhus took such an interest in Malowebi's chalice. Also, I believe it's why we only get a cursory glance at Zeum.

    Mmmm, yes the league might have more overall talent. But, you can't convince me that huge portion of players in the 80's wouldn't benefit and flourish with the way the game is played today. You can't hand check for christs sake!!!
  12. NBA 2017: Playoffs? Playoffs?!

    Well, I never mentioned the 60's, I don't think there is an argument to be made there. In my mind, and you don't have to agree with me, the talent level from the 80's to now isn't that different. I argue that rules changes have aides in higher scoring and if those rule changes never came about, Steph would be getting hand checked at half court. The game was more physical back then, there is no denying it. Only with the rule changes has the athleticism been able to shine, hence increase in scoring and a multitude of other things. If you don't think Jordan would be as dominate, or even more so in today's game, I say you have a short memory. Or, never watched Jordan when he was a freak athlete on par with any of the freaks of today's game. Your fooling yourself.

    She forgives Koringhus, and the Eye approves. I could quote it all for you or you could reread the section.
  14. Bakker XLVIII - Selected to LEAD not to READ

    Ok. I bet You a whole pack of Ramen noodles. ETA: I never said anything about Mimara forgiving the Consult, only that it was interesting.
  15. Bakker XLVIII - Selected to LEAD not to READ

    Interesting. Though, I'm on board that Mimara will forgive Kellhus and destroy the No-God by looking upon it with the JE and answering his questions.
