** 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.]]

* Two questions regarding the ending: [[spoiler:Who gives kitten Sissel the red neckerchief in the ending timeline (I'm assuming Yomiel gave it to Sissel in the game's timeline), and why do the Noisy and Curry-Loving Jailbirds still have their striped "jailbird" clothing if Yomiel never possessed them and committed their crimes?]]

***Of course [[spoiler:he died]]. [[spoiler:We can clearly see Sissel's soul]] just before the credits roll. You can't [[spoiler:show a soul if you're not dead, even if you're in the alive-dead state that Yomiel was in, which I consider to be more dead than alive.]]

*** The thing about the corpses in this game is that if the corpse is on a surface that had moved between the instant of death and the 4 minutes before moment, the corpse will transport to where it would have been located on that surface 4 minutes before death. [[spoiler:In the case of Rindge, his corpse is on the van back at the park. This isn't the only time this happens in the game. When possessing Jowd in the submarine's control room, Sissel is sent back to Jowd's corpse on the floor in a moving room. If this rule didn't apply, Sissel would end up at the Chicken Kitchen 4 minutes before Rindge's death, and in the middle of the ocean in Jowd's case.]]

* 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.]]

** 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.

*** [[http://vignette1.wikia.nocookie.net/ghosttrick/images/6/63/Metal_Yomiel.gif/revision/latest?cb=20120126155046 The shades]] kind of look like a broken piece of metal.

** 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.]]
