But I can't resist one more reminder. Who do we KNOW was worshipped on Urth
from the time of Typhoon on? Why, the Conciliator, that's who, though it's
not formal worship. And who do we KNOW who coos? Thecla, that's who. And
not for a minute do I think that Wolfe would create a character with a
trademark coo (it's a family trait, her sister coos too), and then be so
careless as to assign this coo to another character in a related book--even
if, as some of you suggest, that character is the BVM.

I grant that the Sevarian is not the Increate (neither is the Outsider),
but by the end of the Urth series he is certainly as much of a god as JC is
thought to be on this Earth--I think some of you want parallels to be too
literal . Remember how the Brown Book twists things....
