Re: Sword of Damocles -- comments & opinions ****SPOILERS***

I'm digging out my account here that I haven't used in like 2 years to tell you how much I loved this book. I didn't start reading Titan until the 3rd volume was released and I burned through those fast, so I was disappointed to have to wait so long for this one, but it was totally worth the wait!

One thing I'm still trying to wrap my head around -- you explained in a post above that the Eye was actually the incursions of the planet Orisha from different time periods, caused by the space-time folding of the Veil.

But am I correct in understanding that the reason the Orishans developed the Veil in the first place was to hide from the Eye -- if they cloaked the planet, they would no longer have to suffer the catastrophes that had destroyed all their past civilizations?

So then, it's a predestination paradox/self-fulfilling prophecy? Sigh, temporal mechanics...
