Perfect Masters Of Chalakanesia

'For this reason, it was anciently recognized that the affairs of those who have been shunted must be managed on their behalf. In the Matrix of Logic, that system of written law by which the Perfect Masters of Chalakanesia's classical period claim to have given flesh and bones to those generalized notions of natural justice which previously governed Chalakanesia's law courts, we find it clearly stated that a person who has been geotemporaly displaced, and is presently presumed to be in limbo, must be regarded as incompetent for purposes of law, and that their affairs must be placed under the management of others - without, however, any presumption being made of the displaced person's death.
'According to the Matrix of Logic, a person who had been displaced to limbo was to be presumed to be latently alive, as the phrase has it, and their affairs were to be managed in such a way as to best preserve their position against the expected day of their return. [NoP Ch16]

'Judgment is supported by experience,' said Atlanta. 'So said Logadon, greatest of the Perfect Masters. As a child of Chalakanesia, I know, as do you all, that persons who are spatio-temporally displaced are likely to ghost at the moment when they are shunted. Often the ghosts are displaced to limbo along with the natural person. Often the ghosts return with, before or after the natural person. It follows that the Vignis Vo Gorkindachina whom you are representing may well be one of those substantial, fully-fleshed ghosts which we refer to as doppelgangers, which are indistinguishable from the real thing except inasmuch as they are transitory.
'By its own testimony, this thing which you are representing has only been back in the World of Events for a few days at most, therefore there are ample grounds for regarding its claim to be a natural person as unproven, at best. There are ample precedents for delaying judgment on a host of matters on those grounds alone. In such contexts, the figure of ninety days is often quoted. [NoP Ch16]
