A point here: I have a background in astrophyics and cosmology, and I know that it would be quite "easy" to create a black hole and drop it into the sun. It is not too far beyond our own technology today. I mean only a thousand years or so. The *theory* is simple. On the other hand, cancelling out the black hole with a White Fountain is a million times harder. I have no idea how we would go about it even in principle. I have always assumed that the sun was wounded by Typhon. The idea that it was in fact done by Abia and her cohorts is an interesting one: Perhaps Typhon had it done *in alliance with* her? The idea of Typhon allying with these forces for revenge, or simply as a sort of Sampson strategy, is compelling. hartshorn --
