What if Kellhus was one of us? posted 02 April 2008 in General DiscusssionWhat if Kellhus was one of us? by Cohen, Peralogue

Aren't we all frogetting something here?

Why would he even venture away from the Dunyain monestery? what would his mission be?

Without a plausible mission we can not even guess as to what he could accomplish in these times. Of course he could do anything and we could argue what levels of control he would have on our society.

Do we need to be saved? why would the Dunyain even want to save us? Would they care?

I't not as if the Dunyain are all sitting around watching T.V wating for some mission. view post

Aye, I was going to say that. But keep in mind, their mastery of circumstance isn't complete - that's why Kellhus leaves the monastary, because circumstances still control the Dunyain. Well, at the very least his dad thought mastery of magic was the next shortest step in mastering all circumstance, ergo, all circumstance is not yet mastered. Eventually circumstance makes one or more enter into the world - circumstance deciding their mission.

What creeps me out is that the idea of such a monastary is kind of not terribly out of the ordinary. Wartorn refugees with their emotions torn from them make withdrawal from emotion part of their goals and manage to find a hiding spot. They, in their cold way, are able to set up a rigid breeding program as well. The set themselves to their task for a great deal of time, without the deviations that emotions create.

Weve had enough wars in enough places over enough millenia just doesn't seem very epic fantasy.

In a long, drawn out way, it could be taken as a moral as to why you should avoid war - you might end up making Dunyain. view post
