Letís not get carried away here, chaps. :-)
A lack of new buildings may be a consequence of -partial- infiltration
by the Annese into the human colonies, certainly, but itís no proof of
Veilís Hypothesis. If the abos had replaced the human population, there
would be no new anything. Even the most decadent of civilisations
requires regular, widespread, daily use of tools. Who printed the
newspaper Number Five reads when he is released from prison? Who shoes
the horses? Why is VRTís handwriting so much worse than anybody elseís?

If Maitre and his family are abos stuck in human form, how come theyíre
all such a dab hand with the scalpel?

I would be more of a believer in Veilís Hypothesis if Dr Veil herself
wasnít the person who comes up with the most compelling argument against
it. As it is, I remain firmly in the Liev camp.
