  1. So I figure I should put together some examples because it...doesn't seem to just be what you suggest. So, varyingly there's references to Radiants feeling cold when Stormlight...does something. Grabbing the quotes would be excessive, so I'm just going to give some examples. When Kaladin/Szeth infuse something, they feel cold as the Stormlight leaves them. Varying descriptions of skin feeling chilled, feeling a chill, and frost forming on them/their clothes or even in the air around them (the latter from Szeth Lashing the platform near the end of the WoK Prologue. There are also references to feeling cold and frost forming when they Lash themselves, alongside descriptions of the Light leaving them (but no specifying of where the Light is going.) Frost also forms on Kaladin's fingers at one point when he draws Stormlight in from a gem. Kaladin feels a "jolt of coldness" through him upon impact after falling a great height. His Stormlight is described as coming out of his body in a visible burst. At a couple points when Stormlight heals him frost forms on his skin and he feels the Stormlight drain from him, at one point specifying a bit later that he felt cold from the Stormlight he consumed. There's some language that seems to link the Stormlight that's seen flowing out of the wound as being what heals him, but it's unclear. There are no references to frost in context of any other Radiants (save instances of Oath swearing). I want to say I remember scenes where Shallan feels cold, though I cannot find any atm. Interesting thing to note: Kaladin notes that Stormlight he senses feels warm, and when it's inside of a Radiant it feels warm to them.
  2. This quote might be of interest to the discussion here. (Bolding for emphasis)
  3. I'm really late getting around to reading all this and responding. Jasnah says she had to Soulcast multiple times because Shallan's body kept absorbing the poison. Also my immediate thought was that, given what we've seen of how Soulcasting works: I think Jasnah told Shallan's poisoned blood to become what it was without the poison, as it should have been able to remember what that was like.
  4. You've entirely missed the point of what I was saying. I made no mention of any kind about physical light or such. Stormlight that is in the Physical, has no visual or illuminatory effect on the equivalent location in the Cognitive, nor do we observe it having a presence of any kind. As such, this theory, does not hold up. That is what I was and have been saying. Btw, as an aside, there *is* light in Shadesmar, or at least a form of illumination, given off by the sun and the flames that represent the souls of people. Also by any other light source, such as Stormlight that has been brought *into* the Cognitive, fires, etc.
  5. None of the photons bounce off, all of the photons are absorbed.
  6. When we are following a character who is in Shadesmar, any Stormlight that is in the same location in the Physical does not have a presence or effect in Shadesmar. That's what I was saying. Shallan while Soulcasting the Wind's Pleasure is just an example I was using because it's called out there are infused gems in her cabin, in the Physical, but there is no reference or mention of the Stormlight from them having any effect on her surroundings in Shadesmar.
  7. I honestly kinda figured it was a hint towards her deeper connection to Preservation.
  8. I, yes? I was talking in reference to the proposal in OP that the illumination of Stormlight in the Physical is just it spreading through the Cognitive.
  9. The Stormlight isn't present in the Cognitive. When Shallan is on the ship there are lamps in her room but no illumination related to them while she's in the Cognitive. Important to note two things: Kaladin says you can't feel any heat from a sphere usually, and also Kaladin at one point describes the light of Stormlight as calm, almost cold.
  10. We have WoB on how the change is actually occurring btw. It's a Spiritual change that reflects in the Physical.
  11. Sorry to burst the bubble, but we already got an answer from Brandon, as outlined just...4+ posts above yours.
  12. This is not how this works. Photons do not continue to exist within a thing. They cease to exist as their energy is transferred to electrons/atoms. Generally, what's happening is that all the light that hits an opaque object is absorbed but depending on the properties of the material and the frequencies absorbed, it'll emit new light at specific frequencies. There's obviously more to it than that but that's the basic idea.
  13. Actually, on this point at least, Confused is accurate.
  14. I guess that's a way of interpretating it. The spren that appear around Shallan are creationspren and they don't look like Cryptics, and she says one of the spren on the wall looks like Pattern.
  15. She specifically says ten kinds of spren. You think it's murals of lesser spren?
