In the Pratchett's book The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents, there is a moment when

rat king causes that

the intelligent cat Maurice

lose his intelligence and attacks the albino rat Dangerous Beans. Maurice dies, meets Death and loses two lives (one for himself and one for Dangerous Beans).

After that, Maurice wakes up and

is intelligent again.

How is that possible? I think it is not explained in the book at all.

    It's probably Narrative Causality. – DJClayworth Mar 26 '18 at 16:18

    The RatKing confused him and drowned out his thoughts. When Maurice destroyed the RatKing, he could think again. – Aaron Gullison Mar 31 '18 at 22:47
  • @AaronGullison Hm...that sounds reasonable. – TGar Apr 1 '18 at 9:56
