Interesting quote, and goes along with something I'd wondered myself.

But looking at it from the flip side, do you think it might be possible 
that, when Severian refers to the ghost of Malrubius, he's actually using a 
sort of euphemism? To be more direct, perhaps it was Silk astral travelling 
again, and since Severian had opted not to explain Silk in the first place 
he filled in a name to substitute in the ghost sequences?
