What if Kellhus was one of us? posted 10 February 2008 in General DiscusssionWhat if Kellhus was one of us? by Khan, Commoner

I don't think Khellus would be able to control Earth humans as easily as he did the ones in the Prince of Nothing series. He might get a few followers yes, but I think that people wouldn't follow him so easily. 21st century human beings are much, much smarter than the relatively middle age humans you find in the series. We aren't as impressed by intelligence, because intelligence is so common. We'd also be able to tell the difference between omnipotence and psychoanalysis. I think that the only reason that Khellus (and his father) were able to control people was because peoples convictions weren't that strong. They believed in honour, they were free to destroy people in the names of religion and enslave humans. We however, have understanding of the basic rights of human beings. Khellus wouldn't be able to take that from us, and so long as he couldn't, then we would be free from his manipulation. view post
