In the last two panels I can't help picturing Sara saying "Where's my money, bitch?"

That said...the problem I had with Future Meji was a case of what I'm terming now "Shitting in the Middle of a Highway" syndrome... the jump in the story was confusing, then you add a confusing character spouting confusing dialogue and cockteasing with info that leaves about as soon as she comes, cleverly sidestepping the whole 'making sense' issue and it's just frustrating...

I gather Senilis was the one with the triune entity's knowledge pool, and that was passed on to Meji...
Which makes me wonder WTF did Ian get? Triune entity's PMS reserves, rage? POWER, UNLIMITED POWER?

So maybe all the men of their ancient race bound together into a single Ol Bastard with phenomenal cosmic knowledge and all the women bound together into a single Ol Bitch with phenomenal cosmic hormones? :ducks: ;)

(And all the sexless old people bound together into Ol Dead Guy?)

On a srs note, I was refering to this http://www.errantstory.com/2003-08-29/139 and how the three ol' people were one big ol person at some point

On a not so srs note...Ian is overdue for his period =_= god sometimes I hate the way my brain works.

Ah yeah, forgot all about that. That explains why the loss of Third Collective would destabilize the other two, if the three were originally parts of a single whole.

I wonder if Exitialis, besides being a Dead God, actually was a God of Death of a sort... perhaps responsible for 'recycling' the constituents of the Collectives, somehow, keeping them stable in the process. Sort of the idea that without death to cleanse it, eternal life stagnates and rots... so without Third Collective, Self and Other began, I suppose, leaking dead constituents, without anything recycling them back into new ones.

Huh . . . good commentary on the new Doctor, anyway. :ugeek:
History celebrates the battlefields whereon we meet our death, but scorns to speak of the plowed fields whereby we thrive; it knows the names of kings’ bastards but cannot tell us the origin of wheat. This is the way of human folly. --- Henry Fabre

Keep in mind Ian is describing elven myth there, which is somewhat low on the cosmic reliability scale, as it consists of what the two gods thought they should believe... plus some stuff that Continuity made up, according to Nookie. And that's without the elves mutating it themselves.
