"every meat part of the brain, in a global, door-jamb rattling bang, splitting all the hinges when each synapse and connection slammed open,"
the mind's contents are stored in a substance called "chain-fluid" which afterwards are drawn out, and
"everything in a human brain, the mind, the knowledge, the personality, the memories and the essence... was decanted into a jar entire."
" They speak of places they never knew in life as existing structures within their visual understanding. But nothing can be in that chain-fluid that wasn't in their original brains. Nothing should be strange or unrecognised to them. But they speak of distant buildings, and when we drilled down into it, they all see the same structures. And they're drawn to them."
