Just came up on my mind: why are we discussing if Link was or wasn't able to leave the forest when he was sent back DIRECTLY IN THE TOT? He wouldn't need the Spiritual Stone, because he's already outside the forest. no?
EDIT: nevermind, I messed up. Still, many items can be carried over from the future, why not the Hylian Shield?
I think ganonslayer2000 is a bit of troll, the way he acts. I mean, one could try to prove or disprove a theory, but he's deliberately denying evidence. So yes, I agree with you saying he's narrowmind.
I think that it isn't completely impossible that Link was even send back to a time before he gained the Kokiri Emerald, however hints in the game for thatcannot be seen.
If the Hylian Shield has any value as a evidence in the game, Link couldn't get it until he gained the Sacred Stone beforehand.
The Hylian Shield can be gained in the graveyard by beating the redead under the tomb or by purchasing it on the Hylian Market.
As for the sentinent Master Sword, it could have the powers to open the DoT. Perhaps the blade was responsible for oping the door in the first place as it listened to the Song of Time and feeled the presense of the Sacred Stones.
What do think personaly of Ganonslayer2000? I think that he is very narrowmind and stubborn to recognise his mistakes in his theory.
Sorry being late, here's my opinion.
I mostly agree with what you said. For instance, I can say I totally agree with what Erik Destler posted yesterday. It's literally impossible (and silly) to think Link was sent back in time after he already pulled the MS.
Without involving the "bubble" you mentioned, one could simply assume Zelda had the power to send Link back AND open the DOT. Not to mention that in the upcoming Skyward Sword they're hinting that the MS is some sort of sentient being, which I doubt would entomb the Hero of Time alive. You can see what you want, and bring different points to the discussion, but IMO there's too much evidence (as stated by Erik) proving that Link was sent back to an earlier time (maybe even before obtaining the Kokiri's Emerald, who knows?). What do you think?
Please don't take it to seriosly.
It was just a question. Perhaps the wording was to offensive for your liking. I apologize for that. And no, your post wasn't outrageous.^^
Anyway... What do you think about Ganonslayer2000's statements? For me he just focus just on a few things, without to take the whole matter into consideration. For sure the Entombed Alive statement would be surely logical under normal circumstances, if the DoT can only be opened from the front with the keys.
However the Sages who built the temple and their successors, would not have the problem to open the door. Also we should not forget that the Temple of Time has also some powers of time itself as it showed us in Twilight Princess.
But it is too farfetched to say that, when Link returned at the end to the temple of time, that he was in a temple of time, which existed in adifferent time and space. You might call it a pocket dimension, a temporary rift of space and time in form of a invisible bubble. When you leave it, you will be in a different universe. In this case, the spacerift was in connection with the Adult Timeline, while the outside is a universum which appears to be same, but younger as the other.
When Link gets outside of the bubble, he will takes the place of his counterpart in, meaning that the two links merged or just one was erased from existence.
If you have played Chrono Trigger you might get what I am trying to say. Anyway this theory that Link was in a pocket dimension in form of a temporary rift of space of time is to ludicrous.
It is a shame that the powers of the temple of time aren't documented in a official sourcebook.
yes...I red the whole thread, why?
I hate people who just pass by and throw in a comment without reading the OP, so I didn't, if it's what you're asking. What's the point? Did I say something outrageous? @_@
