Hmm... I can see that there are indeed some (*cough*) holes in my theory. Alright I'm re-reading chap. 65/66!!!
OK, then tell me. How in the world would Nagi be able to know that his homevillage was about to be attacked? If it would be Negi then we know why. It would also make sence that he would say "my coming was to late" as he would want to save his village (which he just have failed to do so). Then he remembered the scene he is in at that time (which might be why he's dazed) and thinks like;
Oops! Act father-like! What should I say... oh yeah
"You've really grown."
Oh yeah, I have to give him the staff now...
"think of it as a momento..."
Now he really thinks I'm dad...
About him being ruthless. I would be two if I was trying the save my village in which everybody gets slaughtered. Especially by demons, which Negi sees as utter evil. He has no problem destroying demons as far as I know.
Also the Demon says "I see... you're that..." He doesn't say "...you're 1000 master." Being a demon (have you guys noticed this is the demon Asuna made a contract with in the anime, just wanted to tell you) he might have the abilty to see through magical illusions, thus seeing Negi not Nagi. He might want to say "you're that... man's son." And in which drawing did Negi block a petrification? I can't find it... But we know Negi is pretty good at healing himself. I'm reffering to the match with Setsuna in which Negi recieved a really deep cut in his cheek. He tells the worried Setsuna "Don't worry. it is nothing I can't heal up myself..."
Did we ever see 1000 master use a staff while fighting? I don't believe he would be needing one anymore. He can fly without one for instance.
But then 'Nagi' did fly away after giving his staff to Negi. Maybe the Cassiopea 'pulled' him back to his own time. 'Nagi' did say "there is no time left." That might also be why he said "I'm really sorry I can't do anything for you." Because he wouldn't exist in that time anymore.
Also the fact that Nagi is older then the pills could make Negi, could be discarded simply by the fact that his face is covered in a shadow all the time. But please look at the drawing of his face when 'Nagi' flaots away. Just barely one eye is visible. Nagi has sharp eyes like Kotarou, but this eye is like that of 'grown Negi' during the practise-date with Asuna.
About the fact that he says "I have no right to say this, but grow up happy and well..." Negi would say he has no right say this exactly because he isn't Nagi (who would have the right to say this because he is Negi's father.)
There I hope if cleared a few things up. well that's the way I think about it anyway.

By living outside the circle of destiny, one attains true freedom of creation...
