         The rest of your post is interesting, and you may be right, but at 
present I'm more inclined to think this was a Neighbor calling to Horn as a 
"baby." I don't see evidence that Horn can "transmigrate his soul" in any 
way apart from Neighborly help. Maybe I'm forgetting something. Doesn't he 
only have such astral visitations and transportations when in contact with 
a Neighbor or a Neighborly artifact (such as an inhumu)?
         I thought of Horn as like a Babbie to the Neighbors, just as 
astrally Babbie is a kind of subhuman man (a baby) to Horn/Silk.
         But I don't have any thoughts on the 3-horned beast. Your 
hypothesis is interesting, to say the least. The Harlot in Revelation rules 
over the earth on a 10-horned beast, often taken to mean 10 nations (i.e., 
10 parts of the Roman Empire -- though I don't think this is the right 
interpretation). Doesn't Horn(/Silk) rule, one way or another, successively 
over three nations of Blue?
