What three questions did Rand al’Thor ask when he went through the twisted redstone doorframe in the Stone of Tear, and what were the answers he got?
Q: “How can I win the Last Battle and survive?”
A: “The east and north must be as one. The west and south must be as one. The two must be as one. To live you must die.”
Q: Wording unknown, but something along the lines of “How can I remove the Dark One’s taint from saidin?”
A: The answer was difficult to understand, and the exact wording is not known, except that:
- Herid Fel said it stated “sound principles, in both high philosophy and natural philosophy,” and
- Rand eventually unriddled the answer and got the job done.
According to Brandon Sanderson’s Wheel of Time Answers From #TorChat,
Rand’s third question to the Aelfinn involved Rand asking how to kill the Dark One. More detail on these will most likely be put in the Encyclopedia.
But note that,
in AMoL, Rand realizes that this is actually the wrong question to have asked.
