I guess my overall question now is:  At what point does their pursuit of the shortest path stop being a conscious effort and start becoming an unconscious habit?

I also wondered this--when Cnaiur is saying that all men are slaves in Kellhus' presence, isn't Kellhus also just a slave to his conditioning?  Dunyains do what they are programmed to do.

Sane Dunyain do.

What happens to one who has broken on the cross and no longer accepts TDtCB - A Dunyain who doesn't accept cause and effect?
