The Dark One is IMPRISONED outside of time, therefore, he does exist outside of time.
0.o ah yes missed that....but once he breaks free will he not be part of time or still outside time?
I think he exists outside of time, like the Creator
Think of the prison as a barrier between outside of time (where the Dark One is) and Randland, the weaking seals gradually allow the Dark One to break through and touch the world.
hmm....i wonder how rand can kill him then....this kinda makes the Do kinda invincible
i wonder too... *can't wait for the end*
jeesh, i haven't been here in a while
Isn't balefire the most powerful "weapon" saidin can make? Does that make it impossible for Rand to channel and kill the DO, or can he use a different one?
Can he use a sword to kill the DO? Is that maybe the only way?
I think everyone is getting hung up on how to kill the DO. I dont think that the DO is going to be killed, just sealed back up in his prison. If the world of the Wheel of Time is cyclical then there always has to be a DO; he is just sealed away from the world at times. Jordan even eluded to it in either book 5 or 6, cant remember it has been a while since my last re-reading. Rand was discussing the DO prison with the philosipher at the school in Cairthien, cant remeber his name either and i am to lazy to look it up right now maybe later.
Talking about Herid Fel? yea i remember that bit, but i didn't understand too well, have to read that part again.
would breaking the wheel kill the DO? or would sealing him up and then breaking the wheel keep him sealed forever?
I think breaking the Wheel would destroy the universe....
I didn't know it could be broken... (but maybe thats just me being an idiot... I forget so many things - short attention span paired with a bad memory.... Not good )
I think there have been a few hints at it. Like the overuse of Balefire.
I think if it was broken I think it would end the universe too.
There has to be a way to kill the DO. Rand coming is the sign that Tarmon Gai'don is coming within his lifetime. It's called the Last Battle, there had to a way to kill the DO and end the struggle with him and LTT/Rand, or RJ would not have called it that. If they sealed him up again, he could just break out again. The 7 seals were supposedly indestructible, are breaking. If it can happen once, it can happen again.
Don't the prophecies of the dragon say it will end with one of them dying? I can't remember.
Wouldn't that be the twist for RJ to let the D.O. win and the world turn into shadow. I doubt it happening though.
Exactly if time is cyclical, then it would have to happen again and again. Maybe when they used the Bore to drill through the DO prison it was just seals from a prior sealing. Also the last time they sealed his prison they only used saidin, and this could have been the reason that the seals were flawed. Maybe if they used both sides of the power the seal would have been indestructible. Just my opinion.
I believe that in the end the Dark One's prison will be resealed, and time will continue as normal, until the AoL and it'll happen again, the Dark One will be discovered again. And start a whole new war.
But, in traditional fantasy fashion, this could be the LAST Last Battle, and something different could happen. The destruction of the Dark One, or even the destruction of the Dragon ?
