A Few Questions - Most likely Spoilers

* Possible Spoilers
Otherland is one of my favourite series by far. WHile I've read all four books three times already, a few questions came to mind on my way home today, and I was hoping I could get some answers to them (I've tried to search previous topics but couldn't find what I was looking for).

1.) What is the significance of The White and Black Ocean? Is it in reference to the Otherland network and the realm The Other created?

2.) I understand there were many Ava clones created, however, why did she seem to experience physical pain when Paul caused her to be in the presence of another clone? In fact, was the clone that Paul summoned (I think this was when he was in Ithica??) significant from the other clones?

3.) The title of the fourth book; Sea of Silver Light. What is this in reference to?

I await your responses :)

Hi canadaboi, welcome aboard!

I don't really have any answers, but there might be others who can take a guess.

The sea of silver light is that ocean all the lost children talk about. At least, that's what I thought it referred to.
