There's always been one detail of Nalthis that always struck me as odd. The fact that there is only one jungle in the entirety of Nalthis. It always seemed kind of strange to me. On Earth, jungles abound, and not just near the equator all the time. So why just one on Nalthis? Bearing in mind, this could be a simple coincidence. But this fact hinted at something else to me. One interpretation of this is that it's not just the climate they live in, but the soil itself that the Tears require. (Although, you can also read it other ways.) This again made me wonder at why a jungle would flourish in just one place in the world. But, there is another instance of a place that flourishes, unlike the lands around it. Harmony changed the land around Elendel, creating a basin where life flourishes, unlike the rest of the world. Is it possible that Endowment could have done the same with the jungle? Perhaps Nalthis is a bit of a colder world, further out in the habitable zone, too far for jungles to form. But thanks to Endowment's blessing upon the land around Hallandren, the jungle and all different types of life can flourish there. My biggest concern with this theory is Brandon's mention that he didn't want to make a map of Nalthis, for fear of getting the geography of a jungle wrong, which could point to the fact that the jungle is natural. But I still think there might be something to this. Thoughts?
