An even simpler explanation that doesn't contradict Raja/Horn/greenbuck is 
to say that Babbie was becoming Horn via an innate psychic ability to merge 
his personality to a human being. That seems to be going on. But I just 
didn't think that was the pay-off I was expecting in the prophecy.

There's lots of narrative and thematic reasons to like that. I certainly 
did. The Mommy references are between Silk and Kyris are sooo compelling to 
me, though. This is not an impediment in itself. It is just like Typhon to 
have the original Kypris implanted with a clone of himself.

However, my acceptance of Silk=Typhon explanation died by a thousand pin 
pricks. One of those was this: How does this get me to Horn riding a beast 
with three horns? Okay, Silk is Typhon. So who is Horn. Not Typhon. Could 
Horn be possessed by Pas? That makes Silk and Horn the same, but it seems to 
me it ends up making Horn ride a beast with three Typhons instead of Horns. 
You probably think I've done something similar to this already. I can't 
emphatically refute that. But this is just a Bridge Too Far.

Have you seen "The Lost Room"? I often identify myself with all those crazy 
object seekers with their Object Diagrams.
