Just out of idle curiosity, do the same metaphysics/physics aply in the
Ender and Alvin universes, specifically are the "atoms" that Alvin teaches the
same as the philotes of the Ender series?

Related in a deep conceptual way (ditto with the strands binding people
in the Homecoming series) because the idea appeals to me -- but they are not the
same physical or metaphysical universes -- the rules are very different.
Interesting question though. Don't know if anybody has caught the similarities. I
didn't plan it, any more than Wyrms and Speaker were planned to use aliens that
adapt human forms for their own purposes
