Question for Week 3:

A lot of made of prophecy. These prophecies were planted by the Sisterhood to act as release valves for archaic cultures and to provide a safe-haven for Sisters on the run.

Yet the prophecies actually seem to fit the situation.

Now- We need to postulate into the mind of the author. Pretend you are writing it all. Do the prophecies really fit events or is it merely hindsight?

What I mean is--anyone can look at an event and shape a prophecy to fit it. There are thousands of people who read Nostradamus and try to fit quatrains to historical events--but that's not prophecy, is it? Real prophecy would be to look at text and say "this will happen tomorrow" and it happens.

Then you have the Kwisatz Haderach--or as Paul says, something different. How does that enter in?

Excuse the stream of consciousness here.

Discuss! yay!
