It's likely it will be a chakra type combination, like natural energy can be fused with owner's chakra to give sage chakra.
So yeah, it's basically fusion ^^
But there's a long run until it happens.
About the six paths, it's weird because in the spoiler it is said that Madara was the third to achieve the six paths, rikudo being the first, and Nagato being the third.
It was not about one person embodying one of the path, which is more confusing for me :s
When I read Bleach this week I thought it wasn't bad (previous weeks considering). Then I read this chapter and saw how much content Kishi was able to put into it, so Naruto>Bleach anytime.
So now we know that you need Senju and Uchiha powers to use Izanagi (wonder if there's an Izanami...there likely is), that Nagato's not the first sage since the original one, that he's an uzumaki, that madara has two sharingans (no more obito=tobi theories thank goodness) and a whole lot more about Madara's technique that makes him seem so much more possible to beat now.
I bet Madara doesn't need to worry about using Izanagi though, he's said that he's got eyes stocked up after all. But Konan, honestly I respect you a lot now but not burning Nagato's body at least (and on top of that displaying it on such a flashy pedestal no less) is just plain stupid. I remember way way back in the beginning of the manga Kakashi mentioned how ninjas had to be chopped up and burned after dying to prevent people from stealing their secrets. Is it me or is this not a ninja manga anymore, we've got ninjas who act like anything BUT ninjas (though this has been happening a long time...must be Naruto).
somehow people want sasuke paired with naruto to fight off madara... why do we even sure that it's not gonna be madara that will be suck in by sasuke, then sasuke be the final villain?? ah well....
anyway.. this just hit me:
if the uzumaki clan are spread all over the world and their special trait are read hair then these people could also be an uzumaki decendant:
1. rin (she got red hair right... i'm not so sure) rip
2. the 4tail jinnchuuriki rip
3. the chewtoy girl... from team hawk
5. .... and the very least likely sakura (it's not red, i know..... she's a defect)
i wonder if there are others??
Geez I hope Sakura isn't an Uzumaki or else Naruto's been chasing his cousin for most of the series..lol
I think if anything Sasuke will end up fighting Madara and at the end when Madara fuses with the Jyuubi Naruto will defeat him/Jyuubi.
so madara wasnt one eyed until now? which eye did he sacrifice for the technique anyway?
whats wrong with me?why is bleach making sense, and not naruto?
at least kishi ended this storyline on a blank page... hopefully the next bit of plot isn't another giant flashback.
You do remember Naruto has blonde hair right, I wouldn't just look at people with red hair.

That and the fact that my predictions are never wrong.

I would assume that the failed Izanagi used by a failed subject (Danzo) blinds the user while a perfected Izanagi doesn't necessarily do so. If it does, then I would assume the Rinnegan is the counter to this drawback. One hypothesis could be that he collects Sharingans to supply himself with extra Izanagis until he can properly harness the powers of the Rinnegan for himself. Another hypothesis is that his ability to remove parts of his body from reality to evade attacks is an effect caused by a perfected (and eternal) Izanagi. If it's the latter, then I would assume that the fact that his Sharingan deactivated after Izanagi indicates the time gap before he can use it again and he hides that eye to hide this fact from his opponents.
