Hi everyone,

I'm way way way behind on the list, but I have to put in my two cents and
take a counteroffensive to the "how do you explain this" contingent that
argues Blue is not Ushas.  While I agree that the burden of proof is
generally on the Blushas group, as the default answer is the negative, I
need a reasonable explanation for this:  Why does time stop on the Whorl
during Silk's enlightenment?  And don't say that time doesn't stop.  It
does.  As I argued to Crush (and Blattid agreed)  since Silk was outside of
time during his enlightenment he saw everything as it happened/happens -
past present and future.  So if he perceived time as stopped on the Whorl,
it was stopped.  And don't argue that Wolfe was careless in this.  He knows
full well what being outside of time means.  If time didn't stop, the proper
way to show Silk's enlightenment would have been for him to see his own
prone body on the ball court as everyone huddled around him wondering what
was going on.  Silk's enlightenment and the stoppage of all action on the
ball court are completely separate events.  So again I ask, why did time
stop on the Whorl?
