Thank you for the welcome!  I am enjoying everyone's input. 

Philosophy and concepts like this are ones that never really entered my sphere of thought.  Being a hard science student I rarely ventured into this realm but have always been a tad bit curious.  When I started reading Bakker and these concepts started arising I was drawn in. 

The philosophy of Object versus Subject is something I wasn't explicitly exposed to until reading Bakker and I am thoroughly enjoying it.

Thank you for the refresher of who Koringhus was ... there was a long gap between the readings of the Great Ordeal and Unholy Consult.

One thing I realize is reading these books before bed isn't the best way to enjoy them.  One needs to have his brain functioning fully and not be sleep addled.

It is time reread them.

Ahh that is a shame ... there is so much to discuss in the 2nd apocalypse series .... meeting in person and with the author must have been a wonderful experience.

I am going to sit and think about what everyone has written.  In the final chapters when Kellhus is conversing with the Disfigured (?) there were several equivalencies made that are the basis of my confusion.  I'll try to tease them out further.

The name Koringhus has appeared ... does anyone have a reference as to where in the texts his name has appeared.

Now I do recall in TUC referring to the No-God as the conjoining of the Subject and Object, the No-God being the Absolute ... I find this interesting and I need to brew on this more.

Hello all,

I am struggling greatly with making the mental abstractions to process the idea of how Tekne is the equivalent of the Logos.

I struggle with why attaining the Absolute leads to damnation ... my initial thought is that reaching the Absolute is essential creating a number divided by 0, an irrational, an impossibility. The Subject and the Object coalescing into one creates the irrational.

Please share your thoughts and understandings ... I have had my brain working on this for a few days but im left feeling thrilled by my inability to resolve this. It's fun to ponder.

Hello all ... My name is Kabir Singh (Unrepentant Schoolman).

I have been a reader for a very long time but I just finally finished the Unholy Consult.  I started reading it when it was published but life happened and it got buried in a pile of books to be read later and I finally got back to it and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I live outside of Sarnia, ON in a town called Camlachie. If Zaudunyanicon is still a thing count me in.

I have many things to discuss with you all about what I consider to be the greatest epic fantasy series written.
