Is the World really communicating with Kellhus? posted 30 Mar 2006, 16:03 by Spamoram, Candidate

There's a Kellhus centric passage wherein he seems to be communicating with the world and it seems to be answering back. The passage begins can be found on page 289-291 in the canadian trade paperback edition. In this passage, Kellhus can hear his name being shrieked and actively begins conversing with an entity that replies through seemingly natural phenomenon. I don't understand some of the imagery however one did stick out after rereading the book. Kellhus seems to ask the wind, "What was I to do? Tell them the truth?" and amazingly the world answers. He finds a twig in his sandal and on it are two leaves. One green and healthy; the other brown and dead. I think this is Kellhus invisible voice telling him that he must murder his father. Seemingly Kellhus is opposed to this idea as he responds, "No, I cannot." Of course, there might be some other explanation for this. Any alternative suggestions or help interpreting the other images in this passage would be appreciated here :lol: view post

Im almost sure that the shrieking of his name is him recalling Leweth screaming his name when he abandons him in the forest in DTCB. Im too tired to think about the rest. view post
