OK, I get that, and I can understand to some degree why one of the first comers would get angry enough to start lashing out. But what we saw there was someone launching an outright war. I have a hard time seeing a gentle peace loving and highly intelligent being to get so turned around. Something like this can't come out of a person if it wasn't already there to begin with, and the glimpses we get from their original world(s) doesn't show any evidence of that. I can't help but wonder if either the High Ones weren't quite as evolved as they thought they were if they could allow themselves to be filled with hatred like that, or if some of the writing for these books went completely off course - but then why would the Pinis allow it...? I just don't understand it - it doesn't quite fit for me...
