>>107879589>ATLA World ... You just interpreted it that way.
Anon. The entire world is just a rip of eastern influences stop being a retard>Wrong. Balance being found in "divine power" AS WELL doesn't mean it cannot be found in non-divine ways.
Well then if it can be found without the help of divinity, divinity is not a requirement or in anyway tied to balance, and is instead just an extraneous addon slapped on that adds nothing to the concept, which is just as bad as a retcon.>How exactly living in mountains is in any way related to moving boulders and manipulating fire?
It’s not, it’s about finding the strength and ability to live with the world around you. Not everything is about bending>You were the one equating balance with power.
I equated balance with being able to transcend seemingly unmovable boundaries like death and the spirit world, you’re the one conflating that with powerlevels>Also, canonically, bending power is defined by spirituality, not genetics.
Your skill of how much and how well you can bend (you know, the other definition of ability) is tied to spirituality. The ability to bend, yes or no, is genetic.>The fact is, there is a source of power other than 'balance
The fact is that you are really stretching to try and make this work>Basically: Being born that way.
if you want to stubbornly ignore all the metaphysical aspects of what’s going on before he’s born again and after he dies again, then yes. >His Avatar State wasn't really any more powerful before and after in terms of raw power.
The Avatar state’s itself is a manifestation of his past lives being able to carry their knowledge over you dolt. It’s already been made by his previous forms having existed and learned for thousands of years. It’s not a secret Naruto technique. Whether or not the Avatar’s 634th time around starts to understand it now or later doesn’t change it’s nature.
You can’t think of spirituality in terms of fighting anime.
