<<The haunted hotel that Weer's Aunt Bella describes in
her article "Ghost-Chaser Number Three" actually seems to be a case of a
temporal cross-over; perhaps Weer's haunting of his own past involves real
time travel.>>

This possibility recalls the possibility that Severian's rescuers in the inn
during the Age of the Monarch were himself.

<<Weer has been dead a long time, far too long for there to be much in the way
of mortal remains left, much less a corpse capable of undergoing rigor.>>

So Weer, as he is narrating _Peace_, is purely mind? And his "house" is simply
his means of exploring his memories, I guess.

<<Remember, the elm tree that was planted on his grave (after he died) has
become quite large and has fallen over.>>

I assumed it fell due to the storm that Weer reflects on in the beginning
