I don't remember that being a puzzler - I thought it was pretty clear that the thousand-fold thought was basically being able to hold the Future in your head and see exactly where things would head, using predictive logic. But I read it over a year ago, so your memory is probably better than mine!

As for Kelllhus' motivation - from the time we spend with him in his head in The Thousand-Fold Thought, I thought it was pretty clear that he is actively trying to stop the Consult. There could certainly be other elements to his motivation, and other layers of plans, but I do think that Kellhus doesn't want Earwa to become a lifeless husk of a world. YMMV

Sweet. Wonder when it comes out, and if he'll still need to write The Book With No Name to finish off the series?
