Thanks, Richard, if you look at the code I posted, you will see that as the generic instance is created, the generic Type is injected into the instance.
public IBeing AddBeing<T>(string name, T value) where T : class
{
    Being<T> newbeing = new Being<T>(name, value);
    newbeing.BType = typeof(T);
    Beings.Add(newbeing);
    return newbeing;
}
when the generic Type is added to the interface instance collection, it is "downcast" to the interface, but the Type variable is there, and accessible from the interface instance at run time.

Your code example has no relevance to the issue here.
