Here's another cosmology question: How many deities are there, and how many Powers are there? My theory, which can only be confirmed or denied by Team Jordan in or after the Encyclopedia, is that there are in fact 3 deities and three powers. I thought this prior to ToM and I think it even moreso now. The three deities, and their corresponding Powers, are: 1) The Dark One, who uses the True Power 2) The Wheel, which uses the One Power 3) The Creator, which uses Pipe Power (as in, Rand uses it to light the Impossible Pipe). I'll post in more detail when time permits. Thoughts are invited.
