I've never heard of "preservance" before - "preservation" perhaps? Or? :confused:

I'm late to the party here, but I have to say that I really enjoyed this. Fantasy philosophy is one of my favorite genres (if we can call it as such :P) and if I recall it's what sparkled my interest for the Santharian project in the first place (Arti's wonderful work on Ava and the likes :) ).

It's full of philosophers' "inside jokes" as well - which is great imo :))

Like:
Quote
Korania, tragically, was disgraced and discredited after the publishing of his most famous work, ‘The Pointlessness of Our Philosophy’, wherein he referenced practically every respected philosophical concept and argued it was useless and had no bearing on anything in reality, essentially arguing that pursuing philosophical truth was an ineffectual waste of time.
Rudolf Carnap FTL if I may say so... rofl

...or another one that made me "rofl" literally (although this one goes to Arti):
Quote
it could also be written in a more poetic form, so that you don't hear Hegel stomping around in the background talking about the "Weltgeist"
I'm still laughing at this one :D
