>>They can avoid a direct disaster for themselves, but the disaster the niggling suspicion might cause for someone else has the potential to create a lot of collateral damage which might affect them, even if they don't care about the damage to the person directly affected.<<

To a certain extent this is true. On other hooves ...

* Messing up the environment by killing things really can cause more damage.

* People who get into negative thought patterns tend to attract trouble. This is just one example of that.

* Sometimes the consequences of a poor choice can be a wakeup call.

I haven't figured it all out yet either. But the questions are interesting.

>> We know from other stories and backstories that what started out as human can become something else, and that what looks human might not be, in this place. <<


>> That cloud seems like a bad thing for a normal human child, but perhaps that's so unlike what the boy is (now) that that's not a good yardstick -- perhaps they're a crack team of emotional predators, and while that's all kinds of bad for the folks around them, it's a pretty dandy matchup for them. <<

Yeah, it's definitely not good for people around them. I am starting to think they're a mutually loyal match though.
