She told him the transformation from base to gold was a microcosm; a cosmic engine within ordered her memory and thus her perception of things sublunar and celestial. He laughed out loud when he understood she had inverted the universe; the trick mirror of finitude had been smashed. The starry realms became a jeweled bracelet in her hands.

The opposites arising from the dark matter of your birth will confront each other. You must learn to endure the tension of the extremes. For after many battles, even deaths, they will ultimately unite in an indestructible and starry state.

"And yet", she said, "though we wake, though there is no end to waking and saying, 'Oh, I see!' ... not ever". But still, within the dream that we find ourselves, every other dream is nested.

He raced to the place where she disappeared, knowing even as he ran she was gone for good. "Don't!" he called out, lost, " Please, don't go … you're the only secret I've ever had."
