Many people have different interpretations of the nods to other games. Some people say that they are all referring to the other games not from a meta perspective, but also from a historical perspective, requiring a convergence, or that they're referring to other events that are similar, or that they're hypotheticals. Personally, my theory currently is that the ceremony is speaking about SS Link. Let's look at the nods and see if they match up: Skyward bound: Duh. Circulating through time: Timeshift Stones. Steeped in the glowing embers of Twilight: Silent Realms; interestingly, Dusk Relics are mostly found there, and Tasogare, the JP word used in the BotW ceremony, can mean ''dusk'', as well. A definition of Twilight is also, ''a faint light'', which fits the Silent Realm. Cross the seas: Lanayru Sand Sea. In search of the gold of the gods: You get the complete Triforce in the game, making SS one of the few Links(along with ALttP Link, ALBW/TFH Link, and LoZ/AoL Link) to do so. Also, doesn't it make even more sense to make the ceremony about the bond that the MS has with the Spirit of the Hero if it's about the hero who founded that bond?
