That one is easy;

A stable Garternay or a D'ni undestroyed would mean no Atrus being born,
no Riven, no Myst being written, and...no Yeesha being born.

Even if she now does have the power of time travel, she cannot interfere with the events
that would lead to her being born.

Yeah! I agree. But I was still able to vist a vault with a dead Kadish in it. That means she can write an alternate universe in wich she dosen't exist and on where she does.

I think the idea is that she brought him back to life, in the present. Or just sort of saved his soul in some metaphorical skeleton-disappeary way.

And the D'ni weren't too wild about Garternay, remember. It was pretty corrupt.

Not necessarily...

If the Great Tree of Possibilities has an infinite number of branches/possibilities, might not there be a branch in which Anna and Aitrus meet under better circumstances? This would not preclude the birth of Atrus and, thus, Yeesha.

As I recall in back to the future, Marty DID interfere with events and then *fixed* them by re-establishing another branch of possibilities (giving his father the courage to stand up to Biff in the past).... hence the difference in his family situation pre- and post- trip to the past... THIS is what I am saying! wink3.gif

If she truly is "all-powerful" and "like a god", then why couldn't she figure out how to avoid the corruption of Garternay?

Remember, the symbol has changed to one which has no end and no beginning.... It is all tied together in one giant "circular" loop... much as we are. Perhaps the ending has not yet been written because it CAN'T be... everything brings us back to the same starting point. Ashes to ashes and dust to dust, so to speak....
