Grayling page 0870 Transcription

In the first panel, Cal is gazing off to the left, still searching for the coordinates they're looking for. Only one of his eyes is visible, and it is sad and haunted. "The tedium, the emptiness," Cal says. "It became maddening. If we tried it as we are now, it'd be even worse.Lem theorizes we need real bodies, in a real dimension, to nurture our minds. Incorporeality, or staying in a shoddy pocket dimension...Neither are safe, long term. The real world is the safest place from the lagoon." Fola listens intently behind him.

In the second panel, Fola looks off to the side, his mind clearly churning at a mean pace. "So..." Fola says. "What IS the lagoon?"

Cal and Fola are seen from a distance in the third & last panel, floating in their gravity suits over the misshapen, heaving masses of cables around them. Cal continues talking. "I'm not exactly sure how it came about. The lagoon is ancient, even to me. Maybe my mother created it, as a mirror for herself, or a measuring stick, sort of. But that doesn't fully explain it either. No one REALLY knows what its history is. Simply put - it's a mirror dimension. It reflects our world, but strips away the cladding so you can see the rivers of energy inside. (By "cladding," I mean your physical body, & the physical world around you.) Unfortunately, it's ALL you can see in there, so it's very hard to navigate."
