    I don't have the bricks with me right now, but I think the words for scrying translate to "dream stare". As we all know, the Ancient Language takes you literally. So why would the words for scrying be a metaphor for scrying? Wouldn't you have to say "show me where [blank] is and what she/he/it is doing"? It just doesn't make sense.

    As revealed in later books, it’s what you’re thinking about, rather than—

    wait. I don’t know.

    It makes sense to me.

    Do we really need this thread again? Nothing in Paolini’s world makes sense, and it’s not surprising that this little detail is flawed as well.


    The author did it.

    (the hallmark of many lazy authors, the answer to possible plotholes is: “a wizard did it” – except of course that Paolini’s world is so screwed up that not even wizard’s did it – only the author can)
