Would elevators and electricity work in the World of Dreams?

I was under the impression you could just think something up and it would work a certain way, without really needing a rationale for why it works.

ex: "I want to stand on this circular platform and it will hover in the air." No need for electricity, pulleys, shafts etc.

Well it would be even easier to fly or teleport, but using an elevator might be cool. I was reading the part in book four or five where they are searching through Elaida's papers in the World of Dreams and the papers keep disappearing because their reflection in the dream world is weak...I wonder what would happen to a computer, if you tried to turn it on or access the files or...go on the internet. There's no electricity in The Wheel of Time...I wonder if it was in Robert Jordan's notes about how electricity works in the World of Dreams.

Also, seeing the percentage bar move so fast is really cool. 400,000 words x 1% = 4,000 words, which is about 5 single spaced pages in Microsoft Word. I bet if Mr. Sanderson pulled an all-nighter he could finish the first draft before his birthday.

Mr. Sanderson is your house filled with swords and weapons and armor and stuff like that like Mr. Rigney's was? Just wondering….

I hope they split the book if necessary, hell, split it three time if it's needed.   Last thing I want to read is a 15 pound book with itty bitty font.

To Shaggy: To advance in levels you have to post. If you look at your profile you will see how many posts you need to post before you level up. Also you can look under other posters names next to their posts and see how many they need to post to level.

To Publius: I would not agree whole heartedly. I mean if they decide to split the book then fine. I mean prolonging a series like this that I enjoy so much really just makes it longer and for me I never want series that I like to end. The thing about it is, I wouldn't mind it being in one volume. Reading large books with small print isn't that bad especially when you love a series. I know the books can be unwieldy (i.e. Stone of Tears book two of Sword of Truth) but I wouldn't be upset about it. Plus reading large books with small print makes me feel smart and others think your smart so its a win win. Mainly I don't care too much either way. As long as the series gets finished and the book/books are coming out at some point then I am happy.

I went to Brandon's house a couple weeks ago and it wasn't filled with weapons. His house looked decidedly normal on the inside. In fact, his living room only had one small shelf of books (all the foreign editions of Brandon's books, like the Russian Elantris, which looked pretty cool). Pemberley probably makes him keep most of his books upstairs, but I didn't see up there.
All Saiyuki fans should check out Dazzle! Emotionally wrenching action-adventure and quirky humor! (At least read chapter 6 and tell me if you're not hooked.) Volume 10 out now!

IIRC when Brandon visited Harriet, she let him visit Jordan's study and pick out one of the swords to keep.

Maybe one day young padawon. I'm kidding, I would have loved to have bought some thing that belonged to him but I was unaware of the auctions at the time.

Me, too. When I heard about them and went to the site everything was sold except for a couple of things but they were going for hundreds of dollars and that's a little out of my price range.

  I mean if they decide to split the book then fine.

I am actually hoping they make two books out of AMOL. I have had to buy a second copy of several WOT books because TOR does such  a lousy job with binding. A book double the size of anything already out would not hold up unless they re-invent their process.

Yes, he did. However, I believe Brandon has mentioned he doesn't have the clout RJ had and doubts he can force them to come up with a new method.

Also, kudos to BS for the naming of characters in AMOL oportunity (in his blog). If I participate I would have to do the $20 option but the chance would be better than the lottery and much more prestigious.
