Presumably they built 1024 because it is 2^10 

I guess I am more wondering if there's a connection between the various structures. For example, is there a function to there being 1024 pillars and 1024 Arks and Ark cities?

Finished this last night. I don’t re-read books and read all of Lawrence books as they were published so I was hoping someone could fill in some gaps.

Spoiler

1. Who were the two Red Sisters Mail/Pan spoke to when they went through the gate?

2. Jorg/Theus was cut off when explaining that the Missing needed underwater power to generate enough power for their elevated form of life but they didn’t seem to care what happened on Abeth. Then he goes, “In fact…” and gets cut off. What do we think he was about to say?

3. Was the living fire that Prometheus gave Yaz a part of Holy Sister? I don’t remember that at all.

4. I seem to remember Holy Sister ending with a reboot of the moon. How does the ending of this latest book impact the ending of Holy Sister? ELI5

Also, is Lawrence now done with Abeth? I was hoping his next series would further intertwine like his other series now have.

I don’t know that I’m much help here.  Maybe if @Azecap is still around, they could help out. :dunno:

In Holy Sister when Nona is deep in the path with a ship heart she sees the 1024 pillars as a map for the 1024 arks.

I’ll take a stab since I reread the Ancestor trilogy just now after finishing the Girl and the Moon. 

Beware spoilers follow:

No idea.

It’s mentioned near the end of Holy Sister by Nona that legend said that The Missing had a way to burn ice.

It adds more optimism to the end of Holy Sister. It goes from Nona’s possibly plan of slowly pushing back the ice while using the remaining propellant of the Moon, which maybe is a few generations of extension, to being able to burn ice, with Theus says could be tens of thousands of years of fuel. It also gives an explanation for why Zole goes back to the Ice at the end of Holy Sister. She says “I hear a whisper and it seems important. Perhaps the Missing are calling to me.”
