Sci-2 Posted September 9, 2015 Share Posted September 9, 2015 Sci, all great questions. I think we speculated before that the Inverse Fire may have been an accidental invention.Inchoroi 1: Hey this new quantum phase-shifting phallus ring is ready for testing.Inchoroi 2: Sweet, let me put it on. Um, oh shit, this thing hurts. Ahhhh, fuck, OMG the agony. WHAT DO I SEE? Yeah, I recall us all talking about the possibility some investigation of the quantum level of reality resulted in seeing the true nature of souls and the outside. Since it takes a rather advanced civilization to make soulless creatures the easiest way to discover the distinction between souls and soulless beings is probably going to occur too late for many species going with Bakker's ideas about evolution making mean fuckers like the Inchies. The other possibility is it took something like a nuclear explosion or worse device to cause the amount of suffering necessary to cause a topos on a world where the veil between Inward and Outside is thicker than Earwa's. This seems like a possibility that we've not fully explored. To wit: It's pretty clear that there are gods and that the Hundred, specifically, exist. It's largely hinted that there's a "god" whether that's the transcendent, solitary god or the many-aspected god of the Inrithi. So could it actually be the case that the Intrithi and the Fanim have both observed shit correctly but may have just made different interpretations of it? Well in some Hindu/Buddhist thought as well as Plotinus there's the idea of an underlying One that isn't exactly a deity but more a sort of Ground of Being that precedes gods. Then from there comes gods. It's possible both Kellhus and the Cish have anthropomorphized the One into something resembling the idea of Yaweh or Krsna/Isvara, a Ground of Being with a distinct personality but this is not actually the case at all.
