Re: Kishimoto I hear what you're drawing.
I don't know the details to your theory and I am not going to pretend I do, but I like where your thought process is, it is definitely one of the more original ideas floating around the base. I can't say I agree 100%, because I feel like it would require some massive explaining on Kishi's part (he can't go back to each individual "error" in a flashback and say, "see, see what I was doing here") which is why I struggle with this. However, if you're correct, I believe it will have to do with Izanami. When Kishi introduced Izanami, he had more in plan for it than just a means for Itachi to trump Kabuto, I have a strong feeling it will play a role later in the story. If you recall, Izanami takes an event from point A to point A' and memorizes the sensations in between causing the target to remain in a loop between these two memorized points. But remember, B and C (the points between A and A') were a bit different each time, resulting in a slighly different variation of the "loop". If I am understanding you correctly, this sounds a bit like what you are trying to get across. Some one or something, has put the entire world in Izanami and until the world can take the "right" path it will continue to loop. Write now, the story lies between A and A' (closer to A' I assume). But has already been through this loop several times, for when it came time to make a crucial choice, the world so-to-speak chose wrong and was forced back to point A. Kishi is showing the variations between the loops of Izanami. Will the world finally make the correct choice ( I assume this has to do with Naruto) or will they be forced back to point A. This is just something I came up with when trying to make sense of your thoughts. I cant say I believe this will happen, but I feel its an intelligent way to look at the story. One thing I know for certain, Izanami will make another appearnce in the story, and play a BIG role.
And for those saying, "Ohh this is wayyy to complex for Kishi's audience." Please, have you read the story so far? Sex jokes, complicated thought processes, and Izanami, dont tell me a 12 yr old should be able to understand all of this, they are not the target audience, it just happens to appeal to them.
Sorry for the block formatting, I just didnt feel like making it pretty this time.
