Well, if Silk were in a two-headed Pas-body, he'd certainly be a
topic of conversation and very unlikely to pass anywhere with-
out notice.  We probably won't have much evidence on this ei-
ther way until Horn makes it back to the _Whorl_.  

This argument, of course, doesn't address why Horn doesn't say
that he is (or thinks he is) in Silk's body.  I think that he is aware
that he looks like Silk--I believe he thinks that's why the Gaonese
made him Rajan--but we can't yet say whether he's in the body 
formerly belonging to Silk, or in another one that's very like or
identical to it.
