We know that she is bucking for Parson to game the system and break Erfworld, is the desire for knowledge for her own sake, or is it sought to be passed along to Parson in the hopes of increasing his chances?
Janis has some motives here. We don't know them. Janis and a Predictamancer are planning something. They were planning it before, when she urged Sizemore that Parson must lead.
I doubt it's knowledge to be passed along to Parson to increase his chances. Janis hasn't done things like that in the past, and besides - if she wanted to help GK militarily, there were earlier opportunities for that. (Though that's tentative - but again, she's a hippiemancer, I can't see her wanting to get involved in a war without higher motives.)I doubt it's knowledge for its own sake. She seemed far too rushed for that. And she told Sizemore that he should wait there - so the predictamancer could talk to him about something?
That doesn't leave me with any theories I like, though. We don't know much about what Janis is planning.
Also, the repeated reference to "A predictamancer" keeps making me wonder whether it's gonna be FAQ's predictamancer. And, if so, why everything seems to be coming down to FAQ.
