  1. When you convert your brother, who then goes on to convert your sisters and now has your mom started on Emperor's Soul.
  2. I think that the extent of the reduction would affect the time taken for a shard to splinter, and perhaps the guidance from the vessel would need to be removed entirely. An idea that I had as I was re-reading the origional theory: What if we used as a model the concept of a Shard being a collection of splinters, each representing a thing that the shard wants done, with a small allocation of power to influence things in that direction, rather than a singular whole? The focus then would not be so much on the splintering itself (under this idea, the Shard comes pre-splintered), but on causing the vessel to lose control of all the splinters that make up the larger entity of a Shard. I think that could be a much easier task. Splintering as we know it would then occur when the pre-existing splinters lose their sense of Shardic identity, and the connection between them is no longer strong enough that any vessel could bind with one of these splinters and assert controll of the others. Reforgeing the Shard would also be an option by trying to collect all of the splinters in a singular vessel, and hold them long enough to restore their connections and sense of Shardic identity.
  3. I had thought that the mind was considered part of a Shard's power. The actual theory seems to have held up to the debate so far. It seems to be well established that a Shard over-extending its resources will, at some point, splinter; especially if the guidance from the vessel is reduced or eliminated. Do we want to try to find counter examples to look for flaws in the theory, or do we want to continue on to the mechanics of how to cause a Shard to over-extend itself to the point that it splinters?
  4. Excellent points. Thank you for the correction. The OP's theory, to reduce scrolling and spoilered for length: To get back on track, as I see it the theory states that a Shard is splintered when it is made to over-extend itself, and is left with too many demands on its resources to remain stable. If I have understood correctly, I would like to bring up the state of Preservation before Vin's ascension. It seems that he had had so much of his power invested in Ruin's prison that he was unstable, yet he did not splinter. Do we know if Preservation would have splintered if no one had ascended to become its vessel?
  5. I think that for huge events we could also add the shattering of the shattered plains to the list. As far as where Honor's investiture is, I had always assumed it to be mostly in the physical realm, due to all the spren and also the effects of the highstorm. That said, would determining the location help advance the theory of how to splinter a Shard?
  6. I think that my point of view can best be summed up as "I think, therefor I am". I can observe the world around me, and I can act in line with my preferences. Independent of how deterministic the universe may be, my will to do something exists, even if only as a perceived preference between physical needs, and I am free to follow it, even if only as the natural result of some complex chain of events in my head. Is this not free will? The ability to have preferences and follow them?
  7. I whole heartedly approve. I can't wait to see how this looks.

  9. I suspect that the plane where the splinters manifest may be influenced by the form/direction the combat takes. If the Shard is primarily active in a specific realm, I would expect that splintering said shard would leave the Splinters in the same realm. If the Shards are not all focused on the same realms, they probably will not end up having their Splinnters in the same realms. Of corse, this presumes that Odium "stuffing the Splinters of Dominion and Devotion into the Cognitive realm" was not so much actually moving them there as waiting for a time to strike that would result in the Splinters being traped their without any Intent to guide them back. The search for an intent to guide themselves back to the Pysical realm would also explain the semi-random selection of Elantrians, as a type of "mini-vessel".

  11. I have had several people say that I should switch from Debian to Slackware or Ubuntu. How would you describe Slackware?
  12. android tablet

    Thanks for the response! I was not really set on Debian, that was just my example because I knew that they had generic images. Do you have any ideas about where I could look for the old mobile version of Ubuntu, or where I should check to find drivers? Is it possible for me to get the driver files off of the device?
  13. I recently found an old Ematic Funtab pro, and I decided that I wanted to make it into something useful, or turn it into a brick trying. I have been unable to get to any sort of bootloader or recovery menu, but while looking around with adb shell I found a flash_image command, which I intend to try to use to put a new image on, unless anyone else wants to recommend something different. My main question, for those of you still reading, is where should I go to get the image to put on the tablet? I have checked for just a generic android image, similar to how you can find generic versions of Debian at https://www.debian.org/distrib/, but there does not seem to be any such thing for android. I have not been able to find reports on what kind of hardware the Funtab uses, so I do not know if I will need specific drivers for any of it, but I am willing to try without any drivers. Any help would be appreciated. P.S. Before someone posts it, I know that devices like these are typically considered worthless, bricks, or better off left alone, and that any attempt to change them may break them and is almost certainly a waste of my time.
