See Typhon's discourse to Severian . .

I don't have it to hand but it includes something along the lines of "the
scientists were wrong - solar radiation declined two parts in a  thousand,
then stabilised . . . "

The implication being not merely that the Sun had been wounded in Typhon's
time, but that he had had a part in it.

Yes, I recall that also ... but this does not automatically
imply that the Old Sun has just started to die in his time.
As I said, I had the impression it had been going on rather
longer than that.
