The Life Span of a Gentled Man

I think it most likely that Cadsuane will teach Rand and the Asha’man humility, or the difference between hard and strong. But an idea worth considering is that she means to teach them something about the Power. While normally women could teach men nothing, the glossary entry for her in A Crown of Swords says that the men brought to the White Tower by her lived markedly longer after being gentled. Maybe this has nothing to do with the Power in the strictest sense, but it seems most probable that some kind of teaching is involved there.

wotmania says: Somehow, I do not think that whatever Cadsuane teaches the Asha’man will have to do with the Power. That is virtually impossible given everything known about saidar and saidin. The difference between strength and hardness is certainly something Rand the Asha’man could stand to learn.


A vague memory

I think it was indicated that Cadusane had bonded all of the men she had gentled.

Where did these Skimmers come from? I mean if they didn't want to read the book they could have just Traveled to another author. Why risk arriving at the wrong destination? Why risk falling into darkness?
