Yeah I know you're not an astronomer, that's why I'm taking the time to tell you nothing can be done with this. For one thing, in the case of Ansel Adams they're talking about pictures of the sky taken from the Earth, not an image of the Earth from the moon. It's only relevant because it could be compared to the lunar tables from the same spots in order to date the pictures. Requiring extensive information. Really, there's nothing you can figure out from that image alone. The two cases are completely unrelated aside from having something to do with the moon, like I already told you.DrPepperPro said:I think it does. The same way a lunar table could be used, one could be created using the angle the moon is above the earth's equator, or something like that, I'm not an astronomer.
An approximation of what? The time the image was drawn?DrPepperPro said:Which means I also believe it could be used as an approximation for the Berserk world.
Well I have no problem with people using their own words to formulate what they think in general, but keep in mind that we're using some pretty specific words for a good reason here. Often, even though the words are close in meaning, switching one for another can just result in being less accurate.DrPepperPro said:I like to change up my wording for specific things from what other people use. I know it's a subconcious thing, but I was trying to point out everything I thought about it, to see if it really is a more obvious thing, which is why I wanted to discuss a less obvious thing (to me), the hair.
It's a good example we have here: while we can suppose from the evidence plainly displayed in the manga that Guts' artificial forearm might have subconsciously become something he thinks of as a part of himself (the incident with Casca is the most flagrant example of this, almost definitive proof as it is), it is moving way beyond reasonable speculation to start saying that Guts might not feel the side-effects of the armor if he doesn't concern himself with them. Or to relate the wounds Slan inflicted him to his own perception of himself, as if it mattered. Things are just not that simple.
This is the danger of speculating using notions that aren't necessarily clear in everyone's mind, and that's why I've been repeatedly, laboriously contradicting and rectifying such theories for about as long as I've been an administrator here. It takes very little for people to get the wrong idea or to take things too far, as history has shown us.
Anyway, going back to the hair, not only is it less obvious, but it's also something we can't reliably predict. We know how Guts received his wounds, we know what they are. His hair was a freak accident and we haven't been told the details of how or why it happened. It could be related to the other side effects the armor has (losing one's senses) or not. It could have been affected by the wave of spiritual light or not. For now there's not much more to be said about it that what has already been posted.
