I'd like to be able to agree with this, since I don't believe Silk-in-Pig
has been downloaded into Silk's body either.  But I can't.  Just because the
divine Silk is linked with Pas, it doesn't follow that Pas is present in the
human Silk.  And even if it did, I don't think Horn would say "Pas is here"
based upon Pas's presence in the human Silk unless he consciously recognized
that he was Silk.
