I feel boorish saying it, but the scarf in Mattak's drawer (I'm sure that
is Mattak's drawer) is not necessarily peach-colored; the perfume reminds
Silk of a peach-colored handkerchief of Blood's.

I always thought that scarf would lead to something, but I thought it was
just another clue to Hy's perfidy, that she slept with both Oosik and
Mattak. But a historical clue....

But how could it be? The antechamber scene takes place centuries after
Typhon dispatched the Whorl. Doesn't it?

(alga, excited, gets up to join the dance, but trips over own cilia)
