MPS, just because legends are generally true doesn't mean they're 100% accurate and don't involve metaphors of any kind. I mean, just because it 'flows in her veins' doesn't mean it's actually physically in her bloodstream or anything like that. That was my point.
Yes, this I know. However, the game implies that it's passed from one Zelda (or whoever) to another almost like a genetic trait.
Interesting that you bring up the Force Gems actually. Force Gems are said to be the source of the power of the Four Sword. Now, the Minish brought the Picori Sword (the Four Sword) and the Light Force together. If the Light Force is related to the Triforce, then maybe so is the Four Sword, and therefore it make sense that Force Gems bear some similarity to the Triforce, if only in name and image.
I figured that too. My idea was always that the Force Gems were created after Vaati's "death" in TMC when the Light Force scattered everywhere.
The Triforce is no different. When ever you see the Triforce you see it you see people touching it and holding it, it has to be solid. To use the Triforce one must touch it and make a wish.
Uh...yea! In TWW, there's a scene where Link presents the Triforce of Courage at the Tower of the Gods, and it physically vanishes into his hand. The King of Red Lions even SAYS that it now resides in his heart. Stupid.
When know the Triforce is a solid object. We see it and its peices being touched all the time. The thing is made of gold and gold is a metal. The Triforce just can not be energy.
The Triforce is not made of any earthly material, it's divine. There's plenty of nonmetals that look like gold but aren't. The Triforce can take on any form it wants! There's even evidence that those three birds at the end of OOX is the Essence of the Triforce >_>
The word golden normally means made of gold. The Triforce is magic but that does not mean it is made of magic. Many other material items have magic power.
The word golden normally means colored gold, like the "Golden Power Ranger." The Triforce is made out of nothing we as mortals can familiarize with. It's divine. A hypercube, you can say. Also, those other objects AREN'T GODLY RELICS OF WORSHIP THAT ALL RESPECT AND BOW DOWN BEFORE!
Shadow of the Triforce?
We know from the goddesses themselves leaving the triforce where they stood, and forming the SR there, that strong magical things can leave an imprint on their surroundings... What if the Light Force is an imprint left by the Triforce after such a long period? So it's like a less powerful shadow of the triforce itself, but not so corporeal...
OOOooo I like that idea.
But the soldiers do say, more than once I believe, that the Light Force is said to grant wishes.
Indeed, but the Soldiers could have been misinformed by Vaati's own ignorance about the object. He thought it was a physical treasure as well instead of a metaphysical energy. Perhaps Vaati was mixed up and was ACTUALLY searching for the Triforce?
