    Question Talk Dar Backwards????

    Dar speaks forwards & backwards throughout the text EXCEPT when he is reciting the words of the spells. That doesn't make sense. He should repeat EVERYTHING backwards. Hmmmm.... are we to put the spell incantations backwards for a clue???

    Meaner ,

    Strange but that is something I have been thinking of lately also. I don't recall there ever being a reason put out for this in the story. Something is missing.

    I assumed that spells would not work unless the words were spoken exactly as written and at the right time. Since Dar did not write the spells in the first place there would have been no reversal of word order. He just had a different starting place.

    Knocka ,

    I had thought of that also . This is what has nagged at me , that Dar speaks like this all the time and that it would be a hard habit to break even casting a Spell.

    I like how you put that He only started in a different place. That stuvk out at me for some reason.

    Now you're making me think some more. Starting at one point may lead to success, starting somewhere else leads nowhere. "You can't get there from here"?

    Knocka,

    If dar siad it backwards also we would have 2 different wheels to work with.

    The spells always seemed a bit wrong . Maybe they do need to be re-arranged. We don't know for sure if the spells are only being read backwards by Dar. There are also 4 parts of each one too. Hmmmm

    Remember that Ana, Yorah and Zac each said one of the Eclipse spells to reverse the spell cast by Dar. The words spoken by each of them are given in the story.

    I still think that if DAR ISN'T reversing the spells lines as he says each it is significant. I'm going to anaylize each( forwards & backwards). I also think that we need to look closer at the spell pages. Maybe that's where we need to reverse everything??? I just think it's VERY odd that he easily said the lines without repetition.
