  1. I'd guess Thanasmia is an avatar of Autonomy. My entire reasoning is a bit circular, but as far as SP1 goes, the characteristics of Crow as the only spore eater we know is why I think this. SP3 spoilers I also wonder about whether the moons are made of bone spores, which Ann says are either white or black, or white and black at the same time. This could be Taldain sand, which is Autonomy's seat.
  2. There's a part where Aux teases Nomad about being brash that stuck out on reread.
  3. Just noting that aux's division is described as interaxial force. This is further specified as holding axons together. Making it weird that releases burn things, but maybe there's another thread for that. Wrt the dawnshard, chapter 21 lists its qualities. I'll have to check them on my pdf when I'm supposed to be awake.
  4. Right, but Sigzil used to have an honorspren. Page 63 implies he's neither Shin nor Alethi. Just rereading with details in mind.
  5. My new theory is Sigzil and his spren decide its worth it to deal with Moash. He bonds Aux, shanks Moash, and then when he takes up the "unchange" shard it half kills Aux due to his division component. When we read about the death of Sigzils honorspren, sunlit man will become super extra painful (whether or not my speculation about Moash holds).
  6. It was spoiled for me by an unreliable source, though that was good since I was leery of the resemblance to SP2.
  7. Its confusing. Aux says "we highspren" that's the phrase that threw me for a loop. I though nomad was sigzil and then I was trying to figure out if it could be szeth. They also mention a little female that was his conscience (Seth's could have been lift) and he says Master sometimes, wit others, and also hoid. Seth's master could have meant dalinar. ) I was working under that theory until he made the bridge 4 sign. I kind of hated it. But rysns dawnshard was change. Nomads was the complement of that.
  8. I favor "yes" because it's mentioned they are not like other scholars from the area. It might explain why Zahel describes himself as a fossil, as if he managed to be killed somehow. The place we run into trouble is in the storyline of the 5 scholars, at what point there would have been 4 who could have been working together. I'm guessing it was 5 minus Vasher, at some point between him making Nightblood and before he felt compelled to silence Shashara.
  9. There's also 4 arms on the denizens of the neighboring planet. But that's pretty random. I do think 4 is a strong argument.
  10. 13 is the number of tiles one has between turns in Mah Jong, and 14 is the number during a turn, including the win. Mah Jong has 3 suits, bamboo, cookies (but could be stones?) and numbers. In Eastern painting, there are 4 gentlemen: Bamboo, Cherry blossom (appearing in Painter's final portrait of Yumi), orchid grass and chrysanthemum. Also, there's 4 scholars. I don't know if they could somehow be the Nalthian scholars? I'm kind of embarassed that though I'm half chinese, most of what I know about these things I learned in college.
  11. I figured one was pushing and the other was pulling. But when it comes to Taoism, I prefer a Ba Gua where pure Yin and pure Yang are oblique rather than opposite one another (later heaven).
  12. I posted this elsewhere, but it was intendend for a discussion like this one. But I guess as long as we're entertaining corny theories, it could as easily be the intent of thinking Steris in heavy safety garb is cute. Extending that, it could be if the experiment is performed by someone who is content, as Wax is argued to be. Though I'm not sure that I buy him being actually content. I'm confused at his apparent inadvertent use of Iron and Pewter but not seeing and using the other metals (like say duralumin, or atium) he had access to, or realizing he had burned Lerasium. I guess I'm watching for uses of other metals as I'm reading. (P.S. copper, chapter 28, tin chapter 66, and possibly mental speed or gold? Or is he just able to concentrate? The mental speed would require feruchemical stuff I don't think Lerasium affects.)
  13. I know were out of the Spoiler timeframe, but I there's definite end zone content in this post. The Kandra say that if harmonium splits, harmony ceases to be harmony. In the Lost Metal, we see a progression of Discord splitting from Harmony, in the Part 1 conversation with Wax, in the conversation with Wayne, and then in the coversation with Kelsier. I believe Discord has happened. Thinking about it, I bet what we have now is a Gold/11th metal division of Sazed's selves, and based on the part 3 impression Wax gets WRT being a sword, it's a scholar/warrior divide.
  14. I had missed the perseveration on 17, but that does seem too many to be coincidence. I was bullish on Wayne becoming a shard, but it's really emphasized that he went beyond after his death. So I had considered that theory as dead as a taxidermized frog. I have a theory on the creation of atium/lerasium after my 3rd reading of The Lost Metal. the Kandra say that if harmonium splits, harmony ceases to be harmony. (spoiler not for any actual spoiler, but to offset a bizarre theory).
