Thanks to Trotsky and Nick:

Maybe I misunderstood what the roving searchlight theory was meant to
be. I imagined the moon was actually _searching_, what you're saying is
that it only appears to be.

Anyway, I'll read Greg's article as directed.

How will we see the White Moon - Yelm blinds us when we look skyward?

I _always_ notice. Sometimes I don't understand.

Ok. Does Glorantha reflect Yelm's light?

Fair enough.

<me>is it... the case, that those elemental creatures we call Lunes, are
<me> in fact embodiments of divine wisdom? Why do we direct them at our
<me> enemies?

But wait! Surely we should initiate them into the ways of the Red
Goddess a slow step at a time, so that we may stand a better chance of
converting them from their barbarian ways. Should we not reserve
Lune-exposure for our wisest teachers?


> To confound them and make them poo their pants. Whyever else?

What if they're not confounded? Is this not a tremendous risk we take,
that our enemies may learn our wisdom and use it against us?
