I can't sleep.  If my genetic recombination theory is right, Horn went through 
the process of being eaten on Blue when he fell in the vine pit (he fell in a 
tree) and the genetic recombination process that occurred created the neighbor 
who would then identify himself as Horn.  Perhaps the recombination does not 
kill the "animal" part of the hybrid ... but maybe it does and that blue glass 
that Horn picked up had some sort of restorative power that returned him from 
consumption. (HMM What other BLUE GLASS fragment have we seen before with 
restorative powers?)
I have satisfied all your arguments against Blue as Green many times over with 
the plant genetic recombination arguement, especially in light of the emphasis 
on corn genetics and on the release of eggs by the inhumi.  I am going to say 
that the vanished people are not the green men, but are the result of 
recombination with normal people, eventually replacing them as they did all 
the animals.  I will further say that their original city is on Green, and 
that they are the terraformed trees that killed the colonizers there and then 
came to Blue (the city on Green of the vanished people is almost as big as 
Nessus).  They are, in essence, the trees that make up many of the islands of 
blue, humans live on top of them.
That man in the colorless cloak on green still interests me.  Heirax still 
interests me.  I will no longer talk about Blue as Ushas or Green as Lune 
because I have satisfied myself that I have met every complaint against it and 
now Occam demands that the idea that there are two solar systems instead of 
one be thrown out. I'm very proud of myself. I'm very impressed by Wolfe once
