Arya kiddin' Posted October 8, 2013 Share Posted October 8, 2013 <snip> Ok this maybe entirely crackpot, and I don't know where else to post it, so here you go. The whole imagery of old gods being (white and red) - what is the meaning of this? So far we consider the Old Gods to be the Gods of the North, the Gods of Ice. What if they are actually the true gods who embody the union of ice and fire. We know that the old gods are not gods in the literal sense, they're no supernatural beings. But what they are is the collective conscience and knowledge of eons past, seeing that weirwoods are actually immortal. Is that what Martin is going for, and is that the meaning of the theme that magic exists but no supernatural beings? Gods are actually the natural forces that are a part of the nature, and comprise additionally of preserved wisdom of what has happened on the earth since the dawn. Just a thought I had. :) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
