Of course, just letting go of sanity would not have been guaranteed to have good results, either. There are bound to be a lot of ways of being bonkers that are incompatible with Finnland.

The "mirrors" thing allowed him to dismiss strange sightings and continue on, which was what he needed to do. So while he was factually wrong, it did work, which in a combat situation counts for a lot.
Yes, lol, that was essentially my point - that Jain made up the mirrors thing in order to come up with some rationale for the strange physical laws he was experiencing in Finnland...
