  1. Taravangian's "Capacity"

    At the end of Words of Radiance, it is revealed that Taravangian asked the Nightwatcher for "Capacity." Clearly, Taravangian believes this capacity to be related to his intelligence, given the focus on the Diagram and his daily tests of his intelligence. But there is something else that varies on a daily basis for Taravangian. What if he has it backwards? What if Taravangian's curse was his intelligence and his boon was the expanded capacity for compassion? What if what was needed to save humankind was a Compassion Diagram instead? (My first post. Apologies if this has been mentioned before. I didn't see it when searching.)
