What if it gained sentience before the Shattering but wasn't active?Well what if it can't feel different parts of its "body" when separated?
But even if an animal is playing dead, you're not going to be fooled once you take a closer look. The GBs certainly delved deeper than that in their research. However, since it's more of a material than an actual being, I suppose it could've made itself inert or something upon instinct...? Or maybe the reason that the GBs couldn't have figured out its sentience early on has to do with the physics of protodermis which we still don't know for sure. (I'm sure bonesiii will have something to say about that.)
And what a quote was that.
Hiding intelligens would recuire too much intelligens for a semi-intelligent being.
Woa what a sentence was that
That's true, but animals can play dead, and they are not intelligent. Who;s to say the EP didn't do the same?
That's an interesting theory... You mean like, if it's not touching the main pool of EP, he can't control it?
