The physics and mathematical puzzles related the Stone.
The realization of the true nature of the Stone and the imaginative delights and puzzles of its inhabitants and the world they inhabit.
An emotional dimension.
No, it's better to linger.
Suspend your disbelief: ignore the time the story takes place, pretend the Cold War has not ended. Immerse yourself in Bear's imaginative universe, and you'll be amply rewarded.
