Hmm. So Sev is a kind of eidolon or entelechy of the future cosmos entire,
a sort of temporally extended Tiplerian Omega Point deity. [I refer to
Frank J. Tipler's outrageous skiffyoid eschatology, now holed by the
disovery that the universe is expanding faster rather than slower.] Cute.
I'll buy that.
