I've been to several ages, and I see Yeesha's seal everywhere. It's on our Relto book, on the floor of our relto, in Eder Kemo, and in the vault in Kadish. Is there any reason for Yeesha's symbol to appear everywhere? Is it because she wrote changes into these worlds and she couldn't resist putting her seal on it? As a kind of "Yeesha was here" graffiti... Any ideas?

Relto and the Relto book were written/created by Yeeshe. The Yeesha mandala is like a signature :)

The rest ... your idea of a "Yeesha was here" graffiti is very good :lol:

Think of it as Yeesha's version of the DRC stamps. Sort of an "I was the one who gave you these Ages" thing.

I think of it more as a "These Ages are part of Yeesha's journey" thing, esspecially seeming you can access some of the Ages without Yeesha (well you could not sure how that will play out this time)

I always thought of them as a dog marking his territory when Yeesha "was" in her Proud Phase (I'm not convinced she has moved out of the proud phase).

Agreed, John. I'd call it simple graffiti.

She is telling you a story. You might want to listen to it ;)

I don't see what leaving her mark everywhere has to do with the story. After all the symbols are:
* Relto - nothing related there on any of the journeys.
* Teledahn - she talks about the cells, however she has a journey cloth there so it was guaranteed we'd go there.
* Kadish Tolesa Alternate Vault - This is the only time I could see a valid point for the symbol being there to reference something in particular. But even so I question how well it works.

Seems more like a marking of territory to me.

Come to think of it, writers always want to be recognized for what they have written. Maybe D'ni Age Writers are no different. We see all of Kadish's ages prefaced by his name, and so it would seem logical that Yeesha would want to incorporate her signature into the Journey Ages.

Likewise, if Ages were books, instead of Books, they would have covers like, "Relto, written by Yeesha."

They were? I didn't see his name on the Er'cana or Ahnonay books...

The only book that had his name was Kadish Tolesa. Which, well, is his name. That's like me writing a book called "Calam, by Calam."

:lol:

His name is Kadish, not Kadish Tolesa.

Maybe it's just a way of saying, "This age protected by Yeesha", so that people don't stomp on the flowers or start littering.

I always thought of it as kind of a tag, like graffiti, only without the negative connotations graffiti has in our civilization. It is more an emulation of the Bahro practice of decorating all available surfaces with story. It is "leaving a sign for those who follow" not an egotistical defacing of property. I think of Yeesha as being profoundly influenced by the Bahro as well as D'ni and the hybrid culture of her parents.

There was a practice to put the name of the owner/writer of the age in front of the name of the age. So Kadish Tolesa is really "the age of Tolesa, written/owned by Kadish" Which means that the real abbreviated name of that age is "Tolesa," not Kadish.

However, I'm not sure if the Eder in front of Kemo, Gira, Tsogahl, and Delin represent the same author, or if it's a D'ni word for "Garden" or "Rest Age" or something similar. Any thoughts on this?
