I recently discovered Audible, and am in the middle of my first ever listen through of the WoT; I have read all the books many, many times, but listening is an interesting experience. I am currently on Lord of Chaos, and just finished the scene of Mat dancing with the serving girl in their inn. During the scene Mat is reflecting on the memories that he received in Rhuidean, and it crossed my mind that perhaps the memories are from his past lives, as opposed to just random Generals of history. I am sure this is not an original idea, but I don't think I have seen it discussed anywhere. Has this been revealed by RJ or BS anywhere?
