An organising principle must organise.  What is organised by this storm of 
putative connections?  [And 'odd' things that are not really odd at all? 
Can't a hungry girl falling asleep under a tree dream of a planet seen 
through the branches as a giant fruit?]

5HOC is not Peritonitis, in which there is an explicit disconnect between 
the description of the protagonist as a humanoid hero and as a microbe, 
which the reader is invited to make of what he will.
