I would argue that Silk's awareness of the time stoppage is an anomalous
of his being out of time, by way of his enlightenment.  I think it more
likely that no one would notice a change in the velocity of a body the size
of the Whorl.  It is, after all, the size of a small planet.  As for
disruptions, the Whorl is already quite disrupted before Silk's
enlightenment, and it grows quickly worse as the narrative progresses.  Of
course, I know very little of ftl travel.
