I do the God Learners were correct to interpret them
as chaos. After all those limbs were the origins of
the cosmos turned inside out according to Cults of
Terror (Greg added two more - Evil and Seduction -
in ToTRM#8).

Or one could combine both concepts and suggest that when
all six limbs have been negated, then the egg either
transports the dragon to the perfect world or becomes the
perfect world. Which begs the question of what happens
to the six limbs after the event.

I suspect the Kralori have turned the Orxili concept on
its head and use the six arms as chakras to reach draconic
