And yet, remember the Secret is referred to as a "weapon," which means 
violence is not exactly ruled out. Indeed, if "love" is a weapon in this 
"war," I think Silk would get that.

Also, the "typical" human must surely be of little interest to the 
Neighbors. It's humanity's /potential /that they see.

Once again, the Fay/Sidhe template emerges. The Neighbors can no longer 
interact with the world the way we can. But they need just one hero to 
start on the path they have set for us.
