>Koishi: "Um..."
>"...No."
>Shiki: "Then perhaps you should speak to her about it. Most are not aware of what truly happened, but I would assume that Utsuho is, and obviously you are as well. And I find it highly unlikely that Utsuho has completely avoided Satori. So that means that Satori would know, as well. So why not ask her about it? Why not discover her own thoughts on the matter?"
Koishi: "Um..."
>Shiki: "It may be a good idea to head down to her, anyways. Yukari says that in situations where one world is known to another as fiction, the events of the fiction match those in the actual world, and these people are, in their game, currently meeting with Satori. It's probably a crazy idea, but there may be a small chance we could communicate with them by taking advantage of this property."
>Reimu: "And also, the Utsuho thing is one of the things that voice wanted us to do before it would meet us, right?"
>Shiki: "Don't remind me. Finding myself in agreement with it is... unpleasant."
>Koishi: "Um..."
>Shiki: "At least go speak to Satori."
>Koishi: "Um... um..."
>Pause.
>"Um, all right."
>Shiki: "Thank you. All right, time may be of the essence here, so as much as I hate to ask this of you in your current state, Yukari, could you-"
>Yuyuko: "One portal to Satori's place, please."
>Reimu: "There's no reason you need to do that every time."
>Shiki: "Rikako, I believe we're done here. Thank you for your assistance."

Don't know why Koishi would have spilled the beans on something intensely personal, but...

>Before Mus' bit:
>Serpent Striker: "You don't strike me as particular sorry about the affair."
>Id Evangelist: "Should I be? We made a better world, where everyone could be happy, where people could explore to their heart's content without the chains of their natures holding them back. It was a paradise."
>Serpent Striker: "So I see."
>Go for the spellcards!

>To elaborate on IronE-Nazrin's command:
>Shiki: "That's... not quite what I meant. Rin and Utsuho were there, perhaps, but not Orin and Okuu."
>"What I mean by that is that they were not the same people you know. Their memories, their lives, were completely different. Different experiences shaped them into different people than the ones you know. The woman by the name of Satori in that world was not the Satori you know here, was not truly your sister. The same holds true for Rin, Utsuho, and everyone else. Satori didn't have Rin and Okuu in that world; she didn't even truly have herself."

Yeah, I know some of that may seem like stretching Shiki's knowledge a bit, but she knows that people in Gensokyo Isle had no memory of the real Gensokyo, and the rest follows from that. There's nothing there that Shiki would be unable to conclude.
