Are these two many questions? :) When it is in this world, Tsorelai Mundya is on a small landmass that emerges in the middle of the Black Sea... sometimes other parts of Teon have been observed in the Caspian Sea, and I know for a fact that islands with towns on it have pushed up into Morris Dam in the San Gabriel Mountains behind Glendora, California. :) Otherwise, Tsorelai Mundya is in the country of Teon, uniting Ilirila, Menarila, and Melpomnea, the three major provinces of the Teonim, on the continent of Feleonhhea (named for a cat-worshipping people). This is on a world called Nenddeyly, which has a sister planet called Rrordaly. There are hostile relations between these two worlds, and each is jealously guarding technologies that neither wants the other to have. Nenddeyly, not unanimously supported by its various peoples, has imperfectly mastered the art of following the Niffistery Eptrot, "the matter tunnels" (shortcuts through matter and time), whereas Rrordaly has almost perfectly mastered the Fandary Felrreot, the art of robotics and artificial intelligence. I haven't started exploring their language; it is related to Teonaht. But I'm not done, yet, with Teonaht, to start on that. At any rate, I don't know how Nenddeylyt technology works. It sends parts of their city--or simulations of it--to earth, but they're not in complete control of it. Sometimes it ends up in other places. At any rate, they've been here, and borrowed from us, for several thousand years, which explains their strong connection to Indo-European and Middle-Eastern ideas while having an otherworldly dimension to them.

Don't forget that he is totally amnesic (he > has even difficulties sometimes to remember some words in Moten). BTW, do > the Teonim usually abduct young people? |Sela was only 8 when he was found. The Teonim who allow a visitor into the city when it's unstable and don't make an effort to get someone out before it "melts" have taken into their midst men, women, and children of earth. Sometimes the Teonim get stranded on our side. Like Issytra. She's here to stay.
