* Minor point: Near the start of the game, Ray mentions that Sissel's power to rewind time will only work on corpses that have not been dead for longer than 24 hours. Why did he point that out? Sissel never encounters any bodies during the game that have been dead for more than a few hours. [[spoiler: Yes, I know that Yomiel has been technically dead for 10 years, but as the Temsik fragment within him kept him trapped in the instant where the fragment pierced his heart, he is not "truly" dead.]]

** It might be in case Sissel got the sporadic idea to try and save a bunch of random dead people. Or better yet, it was likely a subtle hood-wink from the writers to avoid would've have otherwise been a hanging question of "if he can go back to save people's lives, wouldn't that mean he can save literally every single person who's ever been killed by something other then natural causes?". Limiting it to people who've been dead for only 24 hours limits the unfortunate implications that he could end up accidentally saving...say, [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/HitlersTimeTravelExemptionAct Hitler]]. Just to use an example - My point is that it limits the implications for what Sissel could actually use his powers for (whether it be for good or for evil). Especially since the end of the game reveals [[spoiler:He will actually exist forever. If they didn't have Ray drop that line in it'd have basically meant Sissel was a horrific abomination who had unlimited god like powers.

** We can't see the words anyway so might as well have Sissel get to it and examine it for us. [[spoiler: Besides, he can't read due to being a cat anyway so might as well just have him hop to it]].

** The game did mention about that. At the scene [[where Jeego tries to kill Lynne, if you release the giant box that could kill Jeego without Jeego beneath it]], then this is discussed between Lynne and Sissel. It seems Sissel just tries not to think about that.

** It could also cause [[spoiler:Lynne to be a part of this final Aversion and she may live the rest of her life with memories of the previous timeline.]]



** It would probably depend on [[spoiler: how he was hit, how his legs were broken, and how quickly he got medical treatment for it all. And given that Jowd knows that Yomiel got so hurt saving Lynn, he might have seen to it that Yomiel got really good care for his injuries.]]

** Seeing a RubeGoldbergDevice go off attracts the eye, watching to see what happens next. Also, [[spoiler:Lynne wasn't supposed be be in the basement, and had no idea what lay on the other side of the door when she entered.]]

** [[spoiler: Yomiel did say that if his fate was to die, so be it. So much better than living forever was his thinking. That and the goal was to prevent the meteorite from hitting him. And if Yomiel did possess himself, lets Lynne go and dropped the gun and ran away instead to avoid the meteorite fragment, he might get the death penalty instead of 10 years. Or better yet, the writers chose to make Yomiel sympathetic]].

***** The best explanation would be this. [[spoiler: Lynne's body for the first time was at the bottom because that's where her corpse lies at the longest. For Jowd, it's because his corpse was carried away and placed on the table. For the detective in the van, his corpse was in the van so technically, the van was at the park the longest than at the restaurant. For Yomiel, it's because he technically died at the park but the meteor fragment stopped life, death and time. And when the fragment was removed, that's the gateway to the past. But if you add common sense, there is no way you can save the van detective from the restaurant itself and there is obviously no way you can save Yomiel's death from the past in the park]].

* Why does Sissel have to possess the blackboard to read it, but can clearly see the painting Jowd made without having to possess it?
