  • hey tech,

    so i had a thought, and i was wondering if you could help me out. i was looking at the spirit world page, which says the past lives of the avatar live in the spirit world. the source for that is escape from the spirit world. however, in escape, the past avatars didn't seem to reside there, they just kinda..appeared... there, which seems to indicate (to me at least) that perhaps they don't reside there. so the reason i'm coming to you on this is because i was wondering if you could ask someone "official" about it on twitter/tumblr - where are the past avatars?

    thanks in advance!

    p.s. Could you also ask if the avatar is one or many? Thanks again! :)

    • hmm....I don't exactly understand this...could you rephrase it for me?

    • The page titled Spirit World on avatar wiki says that the past lives of the avatar live in the spirit world. the citation for that is the "escape from the spirit world" game. But nothing in that game seems to indicate that the past avatars live there - for example, yangchen appeared out of thin air to talk to aang. So i was wondering if the past avatars actually live in the spirit world, or...where?

      1. Where are the past avatars?

      2. Is the avatar one spirit or many spirits?

    • Uhh I asked GY if I could ask him a question no reply yet :(

      Thanks :)

      Uhh that was a leak that came out once :)

    • did you tell him you were from avatar wiki? i remember once someone interviewed him for the bsst newsletter, and he said he actually uses AW to check his facts sometimes, so if you tell him you're an AWikian, he might be more likely to reply.

    • Just did. Eagerly awaiting a reply. If not, I'll email him.

    • okay, sounds good, and thanks again! let me know what you guys say! :)

    • np. and yeah, i can't wait for a response :)

    • what do you think about it (the avatar(s) being in the spirit world)?

      i wonder if there's a way we can contact bryke through one of their blogs and actually get a response from them (b/c they don't usually answer fan mail)... o.O

    • If Gene doesn't respond on tweeter and through email i would ask atff to ask through tumblr. i could ask but she can do it through the avatar wiki tumblr.

        Loading editor
    • i'm thinking it's time to take it to atff...gene yang hasn't responded, right?

        Loading editor
    • Wait wait wait, I'm a bit curious, why are we going to Gene Yang for this? Intelligence calledme here and I'm a tad confused…

    • @ATFF Intelli want to ask this :)

    • Escape from the Spirit World Isn't Yang's though...? Why would he know any better than us?

        Loading editor
    • that's why we called you in...to ask bryke on tumblr. :)

        Loading editor
    • Oh... sorry guys but there's no way I'd be able to ask them and be likely to get an answer. The fandom would be all over it if we could just shoot asks to Bryke. Sorry but I don't think its happening.

        Loading editor
    • that's why we (tech) went for yang first - figured that if he couldn't answer, then he could ask bryke, or someone else will official say-so

        Loading editor
    • Could you do it from the AW tumblr?

        Loading editor
    • I told you– I can't just ask questions to Bryke. And even if I could, I'm not an admin on the tumblr so I can't use it to ask or answer questions.

        Loading editor
    • Ahhh, all right. Guess I just have to email Gene :)

        Loading editor
    • that sounds like a good plan for now :)

        Loading editor
    • I still don't know why you guys think Gene Yang would know the answer? He didn't write that comic, and he doesn't have an infinite knowledge of the Avatar universe…

        Loading editor
    • no reason, just doesn't hurt to ask :)

        Loading editor
    • Oh… ok?

        Loading editor
    • and he might ask bryke about it

    • what about something through korra nation? who runs/updates that?

        Loading editor
    • Thanks for the invite, Intel.

      Just a thought...It could be that they don't know. If I were them, I'd be doing the research before answering. It's a pretty deep question. If they are strictly following the tenets of eastern religions, then the answer might be easy. But since we're talking about an individual's spirit housed/fused with the Avatar's spirit, it might get a little complicated.

      Roku told Aang that all of his past lives are/were available to him. If they are available, they're hanging out somewhere. At this end, it appears that Aang can call on them at need and they (must?) answer.

      As usual, it seems I have more questions than answers. Sorry.

    • tech, anything from yang yet?

    • crap, i totally forgot to email gene. on that now!

    • anything yet?I hate wiki mobile.....what browser do u use?

    • those were supposed to be spaced out, but nope, thanks mobile.

    • have you seen the latest trailer? in it we have the first explicit mentioning of the location of the past avatars: "all the past avatars live on inside you." seems like my dynamics theory is correct so far....and the spirit world page needs updated.

        Loading editor
    • we never did get an answer from this did we?

        Loading editor
    • nope :(

        Loading editor
    • i think we should try again...and go straight to the horse's mouth this time, considering the confusion surrounding the finale. thought?
