Failed Theory Crafting

7 posts in this topic

How many times have you gone to make a theory but when compiling WoBs you actually kill your own theory? I'm going guess I've had three theories of mine killed this way.

I've gotta admit the one I killed this morning was gonna be a fun one.

More of mine die that way than survive the research and see the light of day. 

Worst was when I spent a long time on reddit trying to map each of the Shardic Intents to binary numbers correlating to positions on the Allomantic chart, only to be shown a WOB that confirmed that not all shards have specific numbers, and some numbers are system-relevant rather than shard-relevant.  The chart part still works pretty well, but that one WOB entirely killed off all the math-theory I was chasing.

All my favourite ones are Killed when I post them by either being already a thing or someone has more obscure knowledge than me

I essentially live in a constant state of having theories proposed and shot down. That's part of the fun. To paraphrase Thomas Edison: "I have not failed in understanding the Cosmere. I have simply discovered ten thousand ways not to understand the Cosmere."

I had a theory that should have failed because of it but I was too confident that, if Brandon were asked the question, he'd have RAFO'd it.

Still sad.
