  2. Thwart lie detection methods* Oh yeah, theft of memory! Believe it!
  3. Not at all :) I'll break it piece by piece. 1. I hold you close. Human memory is beautiful, but also terrible. Memory holds our good memories and our own bad ones. Most aren't aware just how much our motor-functions are dependant on memory, mostly muscle-memory ingrained by repetition, but is retained by subconscious memory. Forgetting key things is the line between a reasonably healthy person and someone who is permanently disabled, hence with diseases like Alzheimer's and dementia. 2. I show you the way. Most are only tentatively aware how much memory affects one's personality. People who have experienced trauma however, are much more aware of this path, because with trauma, one's whole mind and personality are affected. This is good and bad. A person with a lot of good memories and good events in their lives may be more subject to a more peaceful or relatively non-violent life. People with excessive trauma and emotional difficulties, are drawn to darker paths. That's the generalization of it, not the rule. 3. Some call me a liar, but you know the truth. I can't be made to testify, but everyone calls me into question. These two statements were purposefully built in to reinforce the nature of memory. Depending on one's own capacity for their memories, as well as the receptiveness and memory of their peers, one may find themselves being reliable or unreliable. It's a very slippery slope. People often taken advantage of a lack of memory for specific details that they believe pertinent when others don't and decide that you do not remember anything, when the opposite is true. In most court systems, an eyewitness account is not reliable without evidence and sometimes multiple eyewitness accounts become too conflicting and can be entirely ruled out. 5.If I am not your friend, I can only be your enemy. What am I? Human memory is faulty. It's prone to damage and disease. Trauma can have a lasting impact, even altering one's own memory to suit their condition and their experiences. There's also well known phenomenon, when people lie consistently enough about a specific detail, they can convince themselves it is the truth and can thwart theft detecting methods. Then you have people like us. People with internal mental issues. Issues that tell us that we are something else, that we have memories of events and lives that we shouldn't. On paper it's fantasy and disease. To the people who experience this, it's something more and any combination of these things can either make a person indestructible in their resolve or can make them distrust themselves so much, they can't even trust their memories. Case and point, I have many of these issues and believe in my past lives and my Kin-self being revealed, but I distrust my short-term memory so much from experience, I'll do a task I've already done simply to make sure it's down. Locking my car three to four times to be sure I locked it or if a person double checks my work, I'll know I've already done it, but I'll still go back once, maybe twice to be sure I in fact did it. Hope that clarifies :) Swing and a miss xD
  4. @Yaakovana Tovah If memory is the answer then that's the answer, but do you mind explaining how it's the answer to that riddle? Maybe it's just me, but I can't make any connection. And for this new riddle, I'm guessing Pride.
  5. Very well. Hmn... I can be deep and I can be shallow. A poison to the youthful, a panacea for the old. I am as arrogant, as you are intelligent. What am I?
  6. Hm....probably would have been my next guess. They all connect to each other in some ways that get tangled up at times. Anywho, you may pose your next riddle, Yaakovana.
  7. Last week
  8. Lol, nope I see that quite clearly xD Alright, you guys are throwing darts, which has been funny, but I think it's time I just give the answer xD It is..........Memory.
  9. LOLXD Intelligence! Trying to guess with things that might fit as answers, but I'm having a very hard time rounding it down.
  10. Imagination? Lol XD Adding: If I were a sphinx I probably would've eaten myself by now for not getting the answer yet.
  11. Nope.
  12. Is it Logic?
  13. Are they? I'll have to look into that some time. I've never really seen a difference from what I can remember in my lucid states, but anything is possible I suppose. Alas, no lol I'd recommend re-reading it if you haven't and trying again.
  14. Lol well there is an argument for the subconscious and unconscious selves being two different things. So I'm going to hazard my next guess with the unconscious self, being that I often disagree with my unconscious, which is usually in charge of dreaming time.
  15. She'll get it... ...eventually lol xD I'm gonna give you a hint and say it's right next door.
  16. Earlier
  17. Pfft I want to know the correct answer, too. I'm trying to solve a riddle while doing my homework XD Is it.....the subconscious?
  18. I just want to see what the correct answer is. So I hope you get it Rhannan!
  19. I've got a new one, although I haven't started reading it just yet. Been a bit busy since I got it and when I have been free I've usually forgotten that I have it. It's called Dreamworking and that is exactly what it's about. The point of it, if I recall correctly, is to help encourage dream recall and interpretation by exploring dreams you've had (and are currently having) and finding the deeper meanings within. It's meant to help you figure out what you're dreams are trying to tell you so that you can better deal with whatever is going on. However, be advised that it doesn't appear to be from a metaphysical standpoint, at least not purely, it was written by a psychoanalyst/psychotherapist and, since it is about working with dreams, it was placed in the dream book selection of the metaphysical section at the bookstore. Makes sense, I suppose, since dreamworking is largely metaphysical in nature in my experience (especially depending you Path), but it has become more popular outside of metaphysics lately and psychologists have been taking dreams and their impact/implications much more seriously. I intend to start reading at some point, perhaps once I have some more dreams I recall well enough to try and work on.
  20. I'm glad to see that my riddle is quite puzzling xD perhaps a little too much so, but that's the best kind. Alas. Tis not the correct answer.
  21. -________________________________________- Le sigh. Is it the conscience? (Totally not using a guess limit here, I just want to get the right answer lol)
  22. You're getting hotter! xD
  23. Thought(s), then?
  24. I'll be fair and say that it is related to the mind. So once again, close, but no cigar!
  25. From what I heard there are two high dragons total in DAO if you count the DLC and DA2 has 2 as well I believe, maybe a 3rd in the DLC. There are a lot of dragonlings in parts of DA2 to fight but I've not played the first game yet so not sure. I can say that there are quite a few high dragons in DAI to fight, though I'd rather not kill them, and they are much more varied in form and power than the other games. They actually have different elements they use so they're not all fire-breathing. They do, however, fly and they can summon smaller dragons to feast on you while they cackle from some unreachable spot on the terrain -________- I'd much rather not have to fight and kill them, there are some draconic mounts in the game that you can aquire (not that I really use mounts, kind of a waste of time if you want to actually explore the world), and there is one race in the game that has mythology stating they are descended from dragons. They don't know if it's actually true but that's what their lore claims. Some people didn't care for the re-spawning enemies in DAI but I liked it because it meant I could level up more; didn't care for the level cap-off but whatever. Not played Assassin's Creed yet. Also, totally just finished Witcher 3 main story and I am waiting for the end of the credits so I can get back to the DLCs. I did have a pretty good ending (apparently there's a more negative ending depending on some choices you make) and have that yay sense of accomplishment. But it won't be complete until I finish everything! Like the one with the vampire lady who sings the creepy (but oddly soothing) lullaby. Credits.....neverending. Mog, did you sit through the credits after Trespasser? I can't recall if you said you did or not.
  26. I really have no way of being a part of these conversations since I don't play Dragon Age, or Assassin's Creed. I tried Assassin's Creed, but I was never able to get into it because it suffered from two major problems for me. First being that it was a long game. Not that I have a problem with longer games, it's just I think Assassin's Creed started coming out around the time people started demanding 10+ hour long games, and they hadn't figured out that quantity doesn't equal quality. So what we wound up with was five hours of decent content spread thin across a 15 hours of game. My second issue was the core gameplay was all about stealth and sneak attacks, and I'm more of a hack and slash kind of player. That's actually the same problem I have with Metal Gear Solid. They create an awesome world of war with great action going on so frequently, but all Snake does is sneak around it like a pussy. Thank goodness for Raiden, he made Metal Gear Rising the most fun of all the Metal Gear games. Dragon Age I honestly never picked up. I remember I asked someone about it, and the only thing I wanted to know was "Does it have dragons in it." I'd just got done with Oblivion, another midevil fantasy adventure, and it only had a dragon as a cutscene. So when I heard that Dragon Age couldn't be bothered to have dragons - I think they said it had 1 and she was in human form the whole game - I considered the game and any that followed it to be an oxy moron and never looked at them again. Not only that, I've grown rather tired of all these midevil fantasy games that have you play as a knight in shining armor running around slaughtering dragons and other cryptozoological creatures. Where is the game that lets you play as a dragon flying around slaying knights in shining armor? That's the fantasy game I want to play. Those are just my own personal issues with the games, You guys can enjoy whatever games you want.
  27. Yea on my first two files I managed to save everyone, but I've been making different choices in this file, letting others do operations instead of solely using Leliana. My bad on that one. Now my Inquisitor is in mourning and should be allowed to have a special cutscene with her lover like in DA2.
  28. Well I know my sanity is frequently called into question but I can provide no proof that it ever existed lol. Then my next guess, since one of us is close, would be the mind.
