I actually thought it was quite the opposite... I'm just positing something, and seeing what thoughts it sparks. When people offer solutions, the phrasing makes it sound like they're saying, "This is the answer, the conversation is done." If I'm misreading that and people are just saying, mayhaps this is part of the solution, my apologies. I fully realize we prolly don't have the full answer. I had a (utterly speculative) but mostly complete idea on the listeners/Unkalaki which I was just discussing with comet, but the fact that Aimians ALSO interbred suggests my nice neat inclusive brainstorm makes no sense as a single isolated incident if it's happened at least twice. It's also too long for the shoutbox; would you like me to DM you, or since this is the second time I'm doing that with this one theory, should I actually make a thread at this point?
