I'm also leaning towards the idea that he chose not to let himself die and resurrect, because dropping his vigil over Terra for a mere moment (now that Malcador also quite literally bit the dust) would have resulted in the entire planet being consumed by chaos and overrun by demons. Because losing Terra would pretty much have resulted in the end of the Imperium as we know it. The Emperor would essentially have resurrected back into the middle of a concentrated version of Old Night.
Overall though, I agree that the Perpetuals plot has gotten really ridiculous. Had great potential to start with, but got ruined with the whole Vulkan saga.
The human appendix. Proof of a higher power. A divine kill switch so to speak.
No one really likes a smartass, but people tend to like a dumbass even less.
