Memories from the depths...

"It works better if you have an object." --Konstantine Bothari, on beating Barrayaran brainwashing to forget things.

Adults see what's real and what's not real better than kids do. At least, most adults can see between consensus reality and the reality that we spin out of ourselves...

...I think.

All I know is, when you've got reality, and a spinner of realistic tales, and a tower princess, you're bound to have problems.
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?

-- "The Question Song", Anne McCaffrey
