A massive amount of designs throughout the Zelda series and generic and reused, yet that doesn't mean they can't be theorized to have meaning. The Palace of Wind and City in the Sky Symbols are quite similar, and similar enough to give some support to the theory!
That is a possibility, but I don't think the Goddesses would have helped. They never seem to interfere with what naturally happens in Hyrule at all. In fact, the only time they do anything after creating the world is flooding Hyrule.
So I doubt they aided the Oocca in creating the City in the Sky.
It's all Oocca creation.
Don't forget about commanding the Light Spirits to stop the Interlopers...
And choosing new holders of Triforce pieces if/when the Triforce splits...
And aiding Link in his quest in Termina...
And continually filling the Master Sword with evil-repelling power so long as Sages pray to them...
The goddesses are more active than we give them credit for.
THIS is the beacon on alternative theorizing I have longed for aside from the relentless timeline bickering. I entirely enjoyed this; almost more than I enjoy Lex's work. haha
I've been poundering on these relations for a long time but I never could pinpoint the Oocca - Wind Tribe. The Maazal comparison brought up earlier just solidified my opinions on the ordeals you've compared and contrasted. It appears you did your homework... And I see you share an obsessive trait in the art of taking notes while playing through the games. Quite impressive dedication.
Although it's a shame this was not prompt for a ZI article release...
I have no regrets. I am content and fulfilled here. You might have even made THE breakthrough of making TMC - FIRST fanatics cry from now on. For that, I toast you:
Hopefully "Master Skeptic" doesn't come barging in here with non-innovative reasoning.
You can have a timeline, or you can have canon, but not both . If one strictly follows the strictest form of canon, the timeline is ultimately destroyed. On the other hand, if one strives to create the most coherent timeline, the canon must be broken by corollary. It is the unfortunate world in which Nintendo has placed us, and now it is up to decide which road we shall follow: the road of truth where nothing can be created, or the road of imagination where nothing can be destroyed.
I think I understand... I found it hard to believe that "chickens" were able to build cities when they lack opposable thumbs, but then we have the dominion rod, which would make a city built by chickens possible. See, the Oocca are the brains controlling massive statue warriors, builders, etc. which supply the brawn and acutal physical ability to do things. Does this make sense to anybody else?
