Subject: (urth) Silk-23 and the Silkicide mystery

Just in case it is slipping past unnoticed, and at the grave risk of
belaboring the obvious: the beauty of putting Silk-23 in to the
Horn-in-Silk-body is that the past 20 years are as unknown to Horn as they
are to Silk-23, including the mysterious suicidal events immediately prior
to the first switcharoo.

Horn isn't being evasive, he really doesn't know -- this we grant easily.
But the same would hold true for Silk-23 -- he wasn't there, either.  So no
matter which personality is in control of the Narrator, the result would be
the same.

It would also mean that the Narrator would be walking away from rulership
roles on Blue, not because of the crippling first-hand experiences of
Silk-43, but because Silk-23 has seen second-hand that such a path will
destroy him (i.e., as Silk-43 was destroyed, spiritually if not suicidally).
