Interesting Marc. The first thoughts which came to my mind when reading your post 
Were about Wolfe's willingness to create species who seem to be on a higher 
spiritual plane than humans (Neigbors and Hiero-types, e.g.).

Might it be in Wolfe's mind that we humans still remain unready for some higher 
divine revelation than that of Christ? And eventually something beyond that?
