I think thats a fair point to bring up. Though, his current state does show he is anchored to the material world.

Well, we learn a bit more about the Emperor and how he came to be the Godlike being he was, in Vengeful Spirit.



As for the comments in Aurelian, I wonder if it has to do with his perpetual status.

The human appendix. Proof of a higher power. A divine kill switch so to speak.

No one really likes a smartass, but people tend to like a dumbass even less.

Any indication in the book as to when this happens in the timeline, e.g. before/after DAOT or a millennia or two before The Fall.

The White Zone is for loading and unloading only. If you have to load, or if you have to unload, go to the White Zone. You'll love it... it's a way of life.

Nick Naylor: Cigarettes in space?
Jeff Megall: It's the final frontier, Nick.
Nick Naylor: But wouldn't they blow up in an all oxygen environment?
Jeff Megall: Probably. But it's an easy fix. One line of dialogue. 'Thank God we invented the... you know, whatever device.'

Thats pretty cool. I haven't read that novel yet. I'm still behind. That actually is pretty interesting because the state that he is in is pretty confusing. I presume he is only in that state because it requires so much power to close the web way. I wonder if fluff will change the fact he is not conscience.

I read the OP. and the entire question is moot. We know the nature of the Emperor in detail. We know how he was made, when he was made, why he was made. We know what he wants and what abilities he possesses to achieve his goals. GW has given us everything we could possibly want to know about the nature of the Emperor.

If the emperor could turn into a God to rival the four great ones I think he would need to join the spirits of all psychers that have died in powering the GT over the years. Then his spirit would be the equal to 100.000.000 psychers. Now that should count fire something.

Now if I remembers correct it takes 10.000 psychers each year to power the GT and he has been there for 10.000 years.

Compared to the Chaos gods who have been feeding off trillions of souls from countless races across hundreds of millions of years? Not really. Big E doesn't even come close, no matter how much the fanboys want it.
