	This I've heard of, but it is not specifically mentioned in the story,
and it would contradict the dependency the abos have on their physical
bodies. "A Story" has ghosts and the Wise Old One, but they are
ultimately dependent on abos with physical, living bodies for influence.

	But doesn't Jinas travel confound this process of catclysmic
refinement? It lets the old, unimproved races escape their purification
by traveling to other planets, where they endure to late mingle with and
contaminate the successive civilizations' "higher virtues."
