How about a more direct example of of it with the WLW. I understand the mechanics and that its meaningful (obviously, or i wouldnt have bothered askin) but i dont see it in the writing.
"He heard the people talking in the streets, voice piled upon voice, and he had difficulty sorting reasons form conclusions" -wlw 498 "Sometimes he gazed out the lone window..." -498 "He heard the horns call, realized what he had always known" -498 "He almost stepped upon it then thousand times" -498
Don't all those represent past tense? While Mimara's sections, every line is most obviously present tense "She unties the laces of her jacket" She unlaces her leather breeches" "Motionless the scalpers gaze." "Even Koll ... watches with licentious fury"
Though maybe I'm just cherry picking section, but at least to me the WLW seem decidedly not present, except, like I said above, when he's seeing the future rather than the current time.
Interesting point, I think Bakker definitely has something going on with that, but I don't know what. I assume it's tied to her Judging Eye (the God judges/exists the present at all times?)
