Thank you. One of the things I find most interesting about it is that Miura seems to have somewhat modeled Barytes' relationship to the other elements around what Ęther was historically believed to be. But instead of its connotation of purity and a "clear sky" (or a void), he went for the opposite. I'm eager to know more about how it fits in Berserk's cosmology.

I'm always cautious when applying partial knowledge to situations we know little about. In this case, I would recommend to not try to completely redefine our understanding of the Eclipse (or other events) around Barytes. I don't think sacrifices work like what you're describing, for example. If you're interested, I plan to dedicate a thread to Barytes whenever I find the time (probably next week).

I am very interested to hear your thoughts on this subject. I completely understand that there is far too little information to draw any kind of concrete conclusions yet. Honestly though, barytes have provided one of the more interesting things to speculate about in recent memory.

How did you come to the conclusion that he was modeling Barytes' relationship to the other elements around archaic views of the aether? I am aware of that (Aristotelian?) view of Earth/Wind/Fire/Water being the fundamental substances reality is composed of, but not in relation to any aether. Perhaps I am not well-read enough on these topics. :???: If you are going to explain that in a full topic later, don't worry about explaining it here of course.

First post time!

Walter and Aaz's attempts at explaining concepts in general relativity kind of made my eye twitch, but I definitely love the idea of the connection between the human world and its negative emotions with barytes.

A couple of wild speculative ideas:

An event like the Eclipse would draw an immense amount of barytes into one place, and perhaps the sacrifices release the stored barytes for use in obtaining evil power.

The Vortex of Souls takes on the shape of a gravity well, perhaps filled with barytes.  Interestingly, the extremal case of a gravity well, a black hole, even more closely resembles the Vortex because it is infinitely deep and acts as a sort of discontinuity in spacetime. The Idea of Evil resides within the bottomless depths of the Abyss, a place that is "filled with all kinds of blurred negative feelings." Is there any connection there?
