Subject: (urth) memory of Seawrack

Roy gave this passage:

"Every time I remembered something that happened there, I would
think of something that's happened since I've been with you, some little
thing or something you said, and put it there instead."

This is the passage I was referring to: she is able to place memories in other 
places and times.  What is the "there"?  It is the past, underwater life she 
lived ... she is saying she can place events that happen with Horn in her 
past, and he can do it,too.  In any case, that is an ambiguous there that 
seems to mean a time as well as a place (and I don't think it refers only to 
her memory.)

William Ansley said something about that being a scrubbing brush?! Why would 
it climb up a tree?  If it's a soft brown underbrush,it will be right next to 
a tree right?  Why would a hair brush run up a tree? How is there no basis for 
further discussion?  I don't understand what you are saying.  Besides, the 
leaf sprouting stuff is a foreshadowing of the vile intelligence of the avern, 
obviously a sentient plant that knows Severian is there and wants to kill him.
 I don't think my recollection was that faulty ... are you saying that it was 
a hairbrush?!
