Now, that is interesting! So he wants to suggest something "highlander" style! Occult powers, and/or "observers", who do or do not "mix" much into human business, but run the things from the shadow. I have to go to find and read those books soon. I was a bit pissed off when I found out about the missing years in his age in the book, and I wondered to desperation about how the author could make such an elementary mistake! But what you say, it makes sense.
