I think your post is excellent.  The foregoing paragraph still seems rather 
mysterious, though, as it seems to hint at events during a period about 
which we know little or nothing - i.e. a time between when people first came 
to the Whorl, and when they began living on the inner surface, in cities 
such as Viron.  Perhaps they lived in the tunnels while the main interior of 
the Whorl was excavated and terraformed.  Their tasks would have included 
hauling out thousands of cubic kilometres of asteroid rock (makes me think 
of ancient Egyptians constructing the Pyramids). Mainframe probably did not 
yet exist. Did Typhon (and/or his family) institute a special form of 
worship during this period?
