! Notes (Possible Spoilers)

[#1] Of course [Balwer|Sebban Balwer] knew all along. He just did not tell. 
\\[#2] This is the second clear statement of this effect. [Rand|Rand alThor] noted the same effect in %%ot [Tel'aran'rhiod|TelAranRhiod]%% in [TGS,Ch15].
\\[#3] The presence of the [dreamspike] in %%ot [Tel'aran'rhiod|TelAranRhiod]%% prevents [Traveling|Weaves] in the real world and mental shifting in the dream world.
\\[#4] [Sigril]
\\[#5] Raising questions, exactly who were these men? Why did they make one huge push to knock down the wall, then leave?
