From in-book The Way of Kings, we have: Those candle flames were like the lives of men.

This is being used by Nohadon in a metaphor about men and kingdoms. Read tWOK chapter 26: Stillness for the metaphor.

Don't the souls of people appear like candle flames in the Cognitive Realm? How much did Nohadon know? Perhaps his metaphor can tell us a little more about how the Cognitive Realm works?

Perhaps that metaphor permeated the Rosharian consciousness enough for the souls of men to literally appear as flames. I'm not sure it's likely, but Nohadon was, in likelihood, a Knight of some such, or perhaps a Lightweaver, Elsecaller, or Willshaper took him to the Cognitive Realm to visit.

In any case, I think you're on to something. I don't know what, but you're on to something.

Or it is only a coincidence. It's not a unusual metaphor, flame as souls.
