Certainly an interesting theory, though I think you're wrong about the
"stimulating Gene" part -- doesn't he say that he has seen Ben in

At any rate, it being an afterlife does explain some things, but it leaves
others hanging. Can you elaborate?

FWIW, I didn't (and don't) see the worlds of the _Commedia_ in the
Seven Layer World; I see the worlds of the Edda.
