Thursday Evening Ouroboros

Dzyd D. Cairns—the illuminated magician behind Shadowplay—embeds an Ouroboros for us in this mind-bender of a post at The Auteurs—"The Forgotten: I Stab Sane."

The innovation of Sebastian is its bold, surreal transposition of wartime desperation to swinging London, an masterful, eccentric solution that successfully folds time back on itself to create a temporal ouroborous – in which 60s glitz is nourished by 40s passion.

The assorted anagrams for SEBASTIAN make me wonder: Is there a term for words/names that carry the same sequence of letters? E.g., Tokyo and Kyoto...


They are a step above being anagrams of each other..."Sequential anagrams"?
