  1. So, hey, I'm not dead. Ahem. Ah. Anyway.

    I've been wondering a while, and I'm no physicist so I have no idea where to begin, but I was wondering how y'all thought that the surge of Transformation would be affected by a knowledge of molecular or nuclear physics? Do you think that using said surge would be easier or more difficult?  Idk, I'm kinda just rambling, but anyway, yeah.

  2. I don't know how many of you have been to Seattle, but if you're coming from the south and don't want to brave Seattle Traffic, there is a light rail station in SeaTac (Angle Lake Station) that goes all the way to the University of Washington. That station is about a 15 minute walk from the signing it's about six and a half dollars round-trip, there's free parking right next door and I think It's a forty-five minute ride by train. Train station website: My brother and I will be taking the train that day. Cause I don't want to have to deal with Seattle

    I don't know if that helps anyone.

    Granted, but everybody you meet in real life get a glimpse of your thoughts for a good 5 seconds. Even if you already know them IRL they would still get a glimpse of your thoughts for a good 5 seconds each time you meet again.

    I wish to learn the secrets of physics 

    Granted, unfortunately now you spend the rest of your life stuck to the ceiling.

    I wish for a bright future for the world.

  4. Hmm...

    If I had access to stormlight I would absolutely opt for being a Lightweaver. For many reasons: I, just like the Cyptics, am obsessed with the difference between truth and fiction, I love to tell stories (some are taller than others), and am musically inclined. Additionally I have been told I am fairly self aware, so there's that.

    But on Earth? I would most likely opt for either Feruchemy or Allomancy, simply because they would be the most useful. (I mean I would ace college as a fullborn) though awakening would be cool for a wow factor.

  5. Whew, I walk away for a day.

    So allow me to make some clarifications: when I'm talking about spren I am talking about firespren, windspren, honorspren, etc. And when I said shardspren and investiturespren, I meant those as examples of realmatic things. Basically realmatic things getting spren. –\_シ_/–

    I wish to witness the most awesome event in earth.

    Granted, but upon witnessing this event you are doomed to life of boredom, nothing even remotely exciting ever happens in your presence and you cannot hear or read of anything interesting.

    I wish to be the last living creature in the Cosmere to pass into the Beyond.

  7. I've been pondering over the nature of spren recently and have come to this question/theory that I would like to propose.

    We know that the races of spren are not finite in number and new ones can come into existence.


    AllomancerSam[PENDING REVIEW]

    Are there a finite number of types of spren, or can new ones be created?

    Brandon Sanderson[PENDING REVIEW]

    New ones can be created.


    We know that spren come into existence because men think of a concept as alive, giving loose investiture life, though I cannot find a wob on this after searching.

    My question/theory (hypothetically speaking) is that if all of Roshar became Cosmere-aware would spren such as investiturespren and and Shardspren (as in the shards in general) eventually develop?

    What do the great minds of the shard think?

    I'm going to this signing, but I'll be coming up from Eugene OR (about a 6 hr drive). I'll record the signing line if no one else can do it, but I probably won't make it to the UW campus until about 1:00 pm.

    If any sharders are going to be there, let me know and we can meet up. Hopefully I can get my buddy to go to this too (one of my only friends irl who is into the Cosmere).

    Hey, so my brother and I should be heading up to that signing --I'm not 100% certain though-- I planned on being there about 12:00-12:30 and was willing to do some recording. We don't have stellar equipment though and have never been before. But here's hoping!
