and so it is time for the orthos to adjust their party line yarn

PB

Talk about a muddle. Can you advise (clarify) how "the party line yarn" needs to be adjusted?

What is it ?
Were GT folk agrarian (settled a civilized into towns ) etc
OR
Were they nomadic hunter gatherers?

They "tell" what they know from gathered evidence, consensus (something which you endorse), until better information is available. Simples

But apparently you know better? What is it?
Cheers
