With regards to Kellhus, he ceases to be a POV character in the next series, so discerning the intent behind his actions is so much harder. 

However, the Thousandfold Thought definitely revealed one correct thing: the gods have a role to play in what happens next.  They cannot see the No-God and so cannot understand the threat.  In fact, the only threat they see is Kellhus...

Incidentally, new hotel's internet is appallingly shit.  It's like being back on dial-up.  WTF is this nonsense, I thought this place was 4*?

You know who does take security seriously?  Hungarian border guards.  Especially when they break the law by detaining EU citizens at the border for over an hour.  Namely, me.

Verily, the words of the non-prophets are scribbled on the bathroom walls of the sub-universe.


Or something like that.

The holes in the walls and filthy stalls are their doing too.

Also have fun spending the next 8 years figuring out if Kelhus is mankind's saviour or mankind's doom.

So far (just finished The Thousandfold Thought) it seems like he's either a well-meaning guy who nevertheless sees a need to put human civilization through the grinder in order to save it, a la Leto Jr.; a person who has succumbed to the temptation of using his overblown intellect and conditioning for nefarious ends; are actually a god who is just beyond such petty distinctions. Stealing Esmenet was a dick move, though. No way around that, really.

Bakker has an annoying tendency to make his characters behave in a completely absurd way in what seems to be nothing more than a way to force the reader into feeling suspense. Luckily the episodes haven't lasted very long so far (with the exception of Kehlus...). The world building is pretty awesome, and the strong threads of philosophy and metaphysics are pretty neat also.

Is it not written in the Chao te Ching, "a nice tie opens many doors"?

Yes, it is. Chapter 27.

Spicer quit over the new WH Communications Director.  He's some investment banker friend of Trump with no background in corporate or government communications.

This just makes it tastier.
