“… when the Dragon, something I’d thought to be merely a metaphor…”
I’m not sure what to make of the idea that the Dragon would only be a metaphor while dealing with the invasion and forced change of reality by actual magic.
They probably thought the Dragon was a metaphor for a powerful, but scientifically explicable force – like a spirit of thunder’s wrath explaining thunder.
You know, because people who have been dealing with something for generations but lack the benefit of the same education you enjoyed must be prattling superstitious nonsense when warning you about meddling with something you’ve only begun to learn about…
Yes, exactly like all the superstitious uneducated people over the centuries that tried to hold back scientific progress while prattling superstitious nonsense. Exactly like them…
Observational evidence seems to imply some differences.
He and all the others in those suits come from the Itteration of the 7th sphere that never had any magic. Wayland at least could see the world change around him.
Also he is admitting his own hubris right there.
Never underestimate the power of metaphor….
“Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons…”
For you are crunchy and good with ketchup!
