No, I disagree.  The gun on the wall was nothing so cosmic as having 
Silk and Severian in the same universe.  It's much more simple:

Horn/Silk could, in certain situations, astral-project to places that 
either he or one of his companions had actually been to.  The "sleepers" 
from the Whorl -- even though their memories had been tampered with -- 
were from Urth.  If Horn/Silk were to get together with one of these 
sleepers, then . . .

That's the gun that has to go off.
