An interesting theory, all in all, but with potentially fatal problems: 

Krait tells The Secret to Horn, and the narrator refers to The Secret in
_Blue_. But the narrator does not discover that he can astrally travel
until partway through the frame events of _Green_, and is surprised by it,
which implies that he was not told about it by Krait and thus it is not
part of The Secret. 

Also, the astral travel surprises even the inhumi who participate in it,
which makes it even more unlikely that Krait told Horn about it.
