Subject: Re: (urth) Two Silk questions

Pas is not yet dead when Silk sees his dead biological parents in the 
Outsider's "Mainframe," so he cannot be Silk's father. I think the 
blondness of Pas and Kypris is a thematic parallel, or a red herring, or both.
         You might be right that they chose Silk because of blond parents 
(how common would such be in South America?). Yet, given how the embryos 
have been ruined, how could they know when he would be born, or that he 
would be born before landfall? Not possible to plan this, I think. The 
selection of Silk's embryo for birth is part of the Outsider's plan, not Pas's.
         Thus, I think it is a literary coincidence.
