"There is one Creator, who exists everywhere at once for all of these worlds. In the same way, there is only one Dark One, who also exists in all of these worlds at once. If he is freed from the prison the Creator made in one world, he is freed on all. So long as he is kept prisoner in one, he remains imprisoned on all."
   — Verin Mathwin

Setting: White Tower

Point of view: Egwene al'Vere

Egwene is summoned to Verin's study while doing chores in the kitchen. On her way she sees a flash of white that might have been a novice or accepted.[1] Verin's front room is cluttered with maps, sky charts, books and even an owl to take care of mice. Verin reads from a very old manuscript page that links Ba'alzamon to Ishamael by Rosel of Essam. Verin provides Egwene with all of the information about Liandrin and the other Black Ajah Aes Sedai including information on the ter'angreal that were stolen.  Verin gives her a ter'angreal since Anaiya says that Egwene may be a dreamer.  It is the Twisted stone ring that Corianin Nedeal wore.  She was the last Dreamer the Tower knows about, and she could willingly go into and out of the World of Dreams.  

Verin begins a lecture to Egwene on the world of dreams. There are many possible worlds some of which can be reached by the Portal Stones but they are all linked by the World of Dreams, Tel'aran'rhiod. But despite all of the worlds the Dark One will either be free in all of them or imprisoned in all of them. Verin warns of dangers in the World of Dreams and Egwene promises to be careful.

Point of view: Verin Mathwin

After Egwene left, Verin gathered Corianin's notes which she decided not to pass on to Egwene.  As far as she knew, she was the only one who knew about them.  Egwene was not ready for them yet, but perhaps later.
