What's your theory about what happened to his lost sixth prelude?
Possible answers: real theories or fictional fun time!
I'll go first, with some fictional fun time:
Villa-Lobos is quoted as having said that Prelude No. 6 was the most beautiful of the cycle. Perhaps when he sent this to Segovia, it was intercepted by a time traveler who was trying to prevent a future in which nobody ever listened to another piece of music, becoming mesmerized with the inspiring melody of this heavenly work.
