Redirect and Sphinx's Revelation

Sphinx's Revelation doesn't explicitly target, so does this mean I cannot Redirect your Revelation to myself?  Or does Redirect allow Revelation to recognize me as the "You" in the card's text, as if I was the caster?
To whom it may concern: it's getting really old, being unable to see the top half of anything autocarded in the first post of each thread. Fixplz,kthx.
The Revelation does not target, it can not be redirected.
MTG Rules Advisor
note: it is legal to cast Redirect at it, but it just won't do anything.
114.9. Spells and abilities can affect objects and players they don’t target. In general, those objects and players aren’t chosen until the spell or ability resolves. See rule 608, “Resolving Spells and Abilities.”

114.9a Just because an object or player is being affected by a spell or ability doesn’t make that object or player a target of that spell or ability. Unless that object or player is identified by the word “target” in the text of that spell or ability, or the rule for that keyword ability, it’s not a target.

114.9b In particular, the word “you” in an object’s text doesn’t indicate a target.

While not explicitly pertaining to the question at hand, actually taking control of the spell would make you the "you" it refers to (ie. Commandeer).

This is exactly what I'd expected. I hate being right sometimes. Thanks for confirmation, guys.
