What if the Vessel decided to seal himself anyway, maybe even to prove himself to the King, or trying to unburden the King from doing something horrible again. He did so many horrible things to stop the Radiance, but after the Vessel failed, only then he disappeared. The problem with path of pain is that you don't know how unrewarding it is .

I feel like everyone who says the White Palace is Super Meat Boy hasn't actually played Meat Boy.
