What if Il Ilah isn't a completely nonsentient blob of magoi? What if it's a collection of everybody's rukh? What if the Great Flow returns to it, so it's a collection of everybody's will but it's driven by the one that assimilated with it. Wasn't it running out of rukh on Alma Torran before Solomon assimilated with it. Comparing to Inuyasha - The Jewel and Naraku's mass of demons body.
I don’t think that’s a “what if” question. I think that’s precisely what’s going on. Ill Illah is a mass of rukh. The rukh as a collective are gods that resemble the kami of Japanese folklore. Just as Sinbad describes in Magi 346, when amassed together in their Illah form, they collectively act as one of many gods.
Wasn’t it running out of rukh on Alma Torran before Solomon assimilated with it.
Yes, it was, but that was part of Elder David’s plan. By extension, that was the rukh’s plan. David was a singularity whose mission was to realize the Ill Illah/the rukh’s long term plan. It had already been decided that Sinbad would be born in a different world and would have some special ability that the rukh wanted to acquire to compete in their realm full of many other competitive gods.
The rukh may even have the role of determining destiny’s flow and driving a cycle of death & rebirth of worlds only because some other god has forced them in the position. The rukh themselves might be a slave to another god, and fusing with Sinbad was the only way they could gain the power to free themselves. Perhaps the kami that determine the flow of destiny have been trying to shake off that role this whole time!
Sinbad might be correct in a very literal sense: he could have been chosen to destroy destiny because of the actions of a god higher than Solomon or Il Illah.
Regardless of their motive, a few facts are clear:
- Il Illah and the rukh are fundamentally the same thing.
- A singularity is a person who has the ability to defy destiny (the collective will of the rukh) while coexisting with destiny at the same time.
- David was given the mission to destroy Alma Torran so a new world would be created in which a “true singularity” would be born.
- In order to be lured into fusing with Il Illah, the world the singularity (Sinbad) would be born into must have a motivation for wanting to openly defy destiny and feel driven to fuse with the rukh at some point in his life.
- Solomon was used as a patsy by David and Il Illah to create a world of white rukh that create depravity. This created a “Hell” for non-singularities to end up in if they defied the collective will of the rukh.
- That dynamic would motivate the “true singularity” (Sinbad) throughout his life because he was assigned the destiny to come into contact with a great deal of people falling into depravity through no fault of their own.
- The “true singularity” would have the will to join the rukh in their fight against higher kami, and operate in a fashion that differed from the way the spiral of “spaghetti monster” Illah-shaped masses of rukh did in the spiral that the Dragons of Origin observed.
In summary, your “what if” questions have already been confirmed. The rukh have ultimately been pulling the strings of every human antagonist in the story thus far. It may result in something that will benefit humanity, but I doubt they have enough of a perception of or sympathy with humanity’s plight. Their objective is to fight the other kami above them, destroying the old order.
I am absolutely convinced the story will end with the shell of Ill Illah in Alma Torran, Solomon’s World, and the realm where those who have fallen into depravity will become one becuase of the rukh’s long-term goals.
