The Dream that went wrong posted 04 February 2006 in The Thousandfold ThoughtThe Dream that went wrong by Twayleph, Auditor

Lots of great ideas, theories and corrections here.

First off, I agree with Andrew that the No-God should be still dead, but from Kellhus' experience when he was bound to the tree, I think we can assume the No-God is still around in some form (and not only as a memory imprinted on the Battleplain) - I don't buy Mo├źnghus' explanation that Kellhus is just externalizing the darkness within. Perhaps the No-God's nature is such that he can never truly disappear, or perhaps the Consult has already started to re-animate it and it is capable of projecting its will outward to "receptive" souls. In any case, I think there's more to the No-God than memories, even at the time of the events described in PoN.

Very interesting theory Tol h'Eddes, I like the idea that Kellhus had to "purchase" the Gnosis from Seswatha. I wonder, however, what Kellhus would have to do with Achamian being taken over by Seswatha. For a while now there were signs that Achamian was already becoming a new Seswatha in power, character and position. Would Seswatha really need Kellhus' help to take over Achamian ? This is not a rethorical question, I'm really curious as to just how much influence Seswatha's shadow has over the Mandati and what it can force them to do. It can certainly force them to betray their closest friends. Perhaps all Kellhus gave was his permission, to allow Seswatha to take over his "friend", but both characters seem so heartless and unsentimental that I wonder why that would be an issue. view post
