I don't understand why you think Sev's universe can't be ours. The
"creation now vanished" Tzad is talking about is his own universe -
which may or may not be the same as ours and Sev's, it doesn't really
matter. How does its having a Conciliator and a New Sun mean that Sev's
can't have a Christ? Sorry if I'm being thick.
