    Interview: Oct 11th, 2005


    Are Tel'aran'rhiod, the Skimming space and the Gap of Infinity all part of the Unseen World?

    Robert Jordan

    No, they are all separate from each other.


    'Gap of Infinity' is the Theoryland name for the place Egwene goes to find dreams.

    On Skimming and Traveling he said: "In Skimming, one need to know the target better than the starting place. In Traveling, one need to know the starting place better than the destination." [Not exact quote, but nearly so, and the effect is exact. Very interesting implications if taken literally.]

    Also, in Knife of Dreams, Beonin does speak wrongly, and as much as I would like to call it an editing error, it is such only in that neither the editor, the copy editor, nor my assistant caught it. Homer nodded, and I blipped. It will be corrected in the next printing.


    In the first edition, Beonin stated that to Travel one must know the destination, and to Skim one must know the starting point. (It's the other way around.)
