Subject: (urth) Did the Library Survive?

It's been assumed that the Ushas Flood destroyed the Library, but I wonder. 
As Don noted, it's Borges's library, and is transcendental. Also, it's 
physically protected, arguably, being underground.
         Sev. put one copy of his book there. I think this was for the 
Ushas generations to read, not for his own to read. I think he assumed that 
the Library (symbolically in another way the Bible, or Bible of Bibles) 
would survive.
         Sev. put the other copy in the heavens. Wolfe seems to be doing 
something here, beyond explaining how he got his copy to translate. The 
same book in heaven and on earth? Or what?
         What think ye?
