Don't like it, but have to agree. (Side note -- Lilith is often
identified with the Greek snake-women, lamiae, which adds flavor
to this.)

Realistically, _none_ of this makes sense...

I can't help thinking you're seeing what you want to see there --
indications of crisis are ambiguous at best; I suspect that, if
there's a crisis going on, it's only a crisis for the NP, not 
for the whole country.

I certainly think you're reading-into the conversation with the
security guy.

I think a good analogy here is to the Narnia books -- it isn't
a "replay," but, if God made multiple worlds, how things might
play themselves out, differently but according to the old 
patterns, in those worlds. Like those, I don't think Wolfe
writes to be taken allegorically, but perhaps symbolically.
