Conduits and the Entity

  • What are the Conduits conduiting?
    • Kazimir asks this in Wszyscy Święci
      • … The Entity? Something a level above that?
      • There was an answer given by Rouen in What You Are, but she admits it's only her take on the subject.
        • “We are conduits to the past,” Rouen finally explains, looking up to Nathalie finally. “To the memories of those that once held the gift we do. We are conduits for their experiences, their hopes, their dreams. To speak as Antoine did, we are mediums. But I do not prefer those words.” Rouen glances down to the snow, then back the way they'd come. “We are conduits to everyone who came before, that walks the purgatory shadows of memory.” Then, brows furrowed, she adds: “All conjecture. One woman’s perspective.”
  • The Conduit hosts seem to persist and maintain the same way that the Entity does — through memory of them
    • In All Saints, Peter says Kazimir persisted because of something Gabriel did that preserved the memory of him
  • Mosaics who possess the Conduit are 'vessels' rather than hosts
    • See lack of Gabriel in the Graveyards seen in Wszyscy Święci
    • See lack of Alfonse d'Sanmartin in list of Conduit hosts found on Kazimir page
      • Quote from All Saints: There's a subtle shake of Peter's head, the way he tiredly closes his eyes is more telling. "It was different for you. Different for Alfonse d'Sanmartin as well." Another unfamiliar name, one that comes with a shrug of Peter's shoulders. "Sometimes, this… ability. When it tries to possess someone, it's the other way around. The vessel takes control, wrestles the beast into submission. Then it's more like a tool, an instrument to be used. I think Alfonse lived in England, sometime in the 1700s. I had a dream about him…" Dark brows crease together in a look of concentration, "he was hung."
  • Mosaics vessels who possess the Conduit may somehow fuck with things in a way that cause its previous Host's memory to persist
    • See: Kazimir's spirit persists on after Gabriel, very strongly
    • Needs confirmed: Did Alfonse d'Sanmartin possess the Conduit immediately after Madeline Rouen?
  • Entity is HELLA old - likely Mesopotamian in origin?
    • There are various uses of ancient Sumerian in reference to the Entity
    • Manny dropped this tidbit 6/12: "I've technically already spilled the tea on what the Entity's ability is" "since it can manipulate genes on the fly" "It's not like anyone in 530 BCE knew what DNA was" "but if the Entity wants to do something, it flips its DNA to make it possible." "on the fly genetic manipulation"
  • Are mosaics immune to the Entity/Conduits / 'cut from the same cloth'?
    • In All Saints, the gold-eyed raven in the Graveyard "[n]ever crashes, of course, soaring past Gabriel's shoulder, though he never reacts even when feathers clip fabric. Or, more accurately, pass through it, as if they were made of the same substance"
  • The Zuni's take on the Entity -
    • In Sun and Moon, Laughing Coyote tells the tale of a well-meaning man who accidentally unleashed the vengeful spirit of his dead relative into the world and caused the world to be flooded in vengeance
        • In it, the major, world-changing actors are:
        • The vengeful spirit of the Towa who was killed by a Navajo, who kills nearly every Towa chieftain and shaman
        • The unnamed Towa youth, who did not die when touched by the spirit, and instead became possessed by it
        • The grandmother who came down from the mountain, died, and became Kolowisi
      • The youth calls on the spirit for guidance because he feels his clan is too greedy and proud. He asks for help in stopping the cruelties of his clan, setting right their wrongs, but the spirit "knows only one answer" and goes methodically murdering the leaders of the Towa clan. Catastrophes follow in the spirit's wake - great earthquakes. The Towa people, including the young man, flee to the top of a mountain. When the spirit comes, the young man descends to meet the spirit and deter it, and instead is possessed by it. The spirit says, through him, that the Towa will drown in 'all the world's waters.' A grandmother descends to ask that the waters wait until the children of her tribe arrive, and the spirit agrees; but takes her life as payment. The spirit is washed away in the flood that comes, and the remaining Towa people survive atop the mountain.
    • In A:dikwahna' — MORE MYTHOLOGY YAY :D — gods and aspects of Zuni religion are explained
      • Reintroduces concept of winged serpent of the water, Kolowisi (also known as: Awanyu, Misi-kinepikw, Unktehi)
      • Introduces Awonawilona; name for the sun, "Creator of all things"
      • Introduces the Ahayu'da warrior twins of the sun — Ahaiyuta and Matsailema — heroes who helped the first people defend themselves and rise up from the great flood
        • These two are shown with opposing color schemes, and it's believed they represent the Conduits, where Awonawilona would be the Entity in this case.
        • Where this gets fucking confusing for me (Emily) is I have no idea how well this ties in with the myth referenced in Sun and Moon?? Because you'd figure the vengeful spirit to be the Entity representation in that one, and the boy to be Adam, possibly?
      • Also introduces the concept of the Kachina — "living spirits that inhabit all things. Even time and space" — importance to them not immediately obvious?
