What about those explicit errors in On Blue's Waters where he calls his son 
Horn and then concludes that he caught the ball, he won the game?  How much 
more explicitly can Horn communicate that he has merged with Silk?
By the way, it's a real hoot to read the descriptions of Horn at the beginning 
of Lake of the Long Sun where Horn writes what a fine, handsome, and 
intelligent boy he is and then he and patera silk talk about the childhood 
toys they had (which come up again in RttW)
