Although Brand claims that his quest has been successful, the reader wonders why he does not share the wisdom that he should have gained with a successful quest.  Since he does not and jumps in the lime kiln instead, one can only assume that either the wisdom was too great to bear or that the knowledge was such that he felt he had failed.
