    An interesting theoretic question. I think that after letting Jake drop he realizes that he must put his humanity and love for others above his quest or he will not "deserve" to reach the tower. So, I think he would chose Algul Siento. Now the question that really makes me ponder, is, if he knew Eddie was gonna biff it at the battle of AS, would he have gone ahead???

    true, and adding to that, the story itself is a remake of the modernist quest for finality, certainty and meaning are turned on its head, leaving the overall plot partly the result of accident and arguably without meaning. And although we are not in the "meaning of the rose" thread i would like to add, The rose alludes to the possibility of many meanings or of nebulous meaning, the rose is a symbolic figure so rich in meanings that by the end it hardly has any meaning.
    Thoughts?
    to copress all of that i would simply add "Its the same old song and dance"
