Finished TTT today - my thoughts... Holy War as training - posted 08 November 2007 in The Thousandfold ThoughtFinished TTT today - my thoughts... Holy War as training - by Israfel, Peralogue

Quote: "Callan S.":1tbch80l

Anyway, in terms of the war remember Moenghus realised the spiritual world (or whatever you'd call it) existed - and that by killing enough people, the link to it could be severed. Removing the potential for salvation...and more importantly, damnation. And Moenghus knew he was damned. The war was the first staging ground of mass butcherings for this purpose.[/quote:1tbch80l]

Ok, I'll have to go back to the book to be sure, but I'm pretty sure this was Kellhus's reasoning about why Moenghus had to die - because he would realise this, not because he had. In fact, I got the distinct impression that Moenghus was going "wtf is he talking about?" when Kellhus went off on his "when you realise you're damned" speech. It's part of what he sees as Kellhus's madness, so I wouldn't agree that it was Moenghus's rationale for the holy war... view post
