Would the Giants' experience's imprint on the rotational Wheel of Time, cause us to feel what they may have felt?✶ I felt very sad that day.
The Giants are telepathic. The race was in one-mindedness. The slaughter of such a large group of their own, caused them to come to the painful realization that the world was not a safe place; that others will not rest until they exterminate all giants. They all felt great sadness.
They decided after this tragic event to preserve a small number of giants through cryogenics.
