I personally think it's a backhand statement of the fact that Severian is
the Narrator.

Wolfe's universe is a Catholic one, and in a Catholic universe The Narrator
has a special place.

A way of putting it would be that S's memory is perfect **because this
reality conforms to his memory** not the other way round.

I am sorry if this sounds semi-mystical, but it expresses more or less what
I mean.   I think.

I am still lurking here with great enjoyment but I only have time to drop in
the odd note nowadays, and some of the notes are very odd indeed :-)
