True, and I suppose this was a dawning realisation as there probably isn't
an easy way to find out how much time the average relativistic space
traveller has been away simply by looking around, particularly as the
Autarchs have been trying to keep society in stasis until the New Sun comes
ever since the time of Ymar (as Palaemon remarks to Severian at the
beginning of his journey).
