As the originator (as far as I know) of the Silk-cut-himself-in-
grief hypothesis, I have to point out that this hypothesis does 
_not_ involve Silk bleeding to death, accidentally or otherwise.

In fact, I profoundly doubt the value or validity of _any_ theory 
that involves Silk being (physically) dead at the time Horn 
"possesses" him. The whole point of what the Neighbor offers Horn 
is to take a living soul from a dying body and put it into a 
living body with a dying soul. (My wording; I don't have the text 
before me.)
