“The blue star is visible in the ceiling, as certain celestial bodies were in the burial chambers of the ancients. We go to sleep, watched over by warm walls and breathing beds. Our eyes and ears and hands reach for that star and move us there, through the quantum veil of time and space. Since our observations must be corroborated, we are three.”
