Much discussion here about appropriateness of higher authorities flooding
the whole world for 40 days and killing everyone save a small band of
survivors.  I suspect this has been previously discussed in other
forums ;),

The only difference is that Severian is the instrument causing the
suffering, rather than the sacrifice himself.  As with Abraham (as
discussed upthread), he has to believe things will turn out all right in
the long term, even though he cannot comprehend the necessity of the
ordained methods.
