“Tadeusz retrieves an airline sleep mask from his desk drawer. He removes the mask from it’s package, and slips it over Gregory’s open eyes. Tadeusz waits patiently. It has been well over a month since the diagram first locked Gregory’s vision upon its immobilizing design; therefore, it will take some time for the afterimage to fade from Gregory’s sight. Twenty-seven minutes and forty-three seconds pass uneventfully, and then the diagram suddenly shifts loose from the spot where it has been persistently hovering in front of Gregory’s face. The diagram then sways gently as it floats down toward Gregory. Only a small corner of it lands on Gregory’s nose and cheek, but quickly slides off and follows the rest of the diagram onto the floor next to Gregory’s recumbent head. Gregory blinks, and begins to breath again.”
