What drove Kellhus mad? posted 25 January 2008 in The Thousandfold ThoughtWhat drove Kellhus mad? by Israfel, Peralogue

It was the time on the Circumfix, I'm pretty sure.

Moenghus, when he meets Kellhus, says his probablity trance failed him at that point, and comments a little later that he didn't forsee that it would break him rather than enlighten him.

It's from that point onwards that he starts to see halos around himself, I believe. Although I personally am coming round to the view that being mad, he has opened himself to the outside and the divine (see Cnaiur's report of what Akka says about the connection between madness and divinity), I'd say it was definitely that point (when he weeps onwards, essentially) that he starts going mad, and the voices convince him of 'destiny' and that damnation and salvation are facts. view post
