There is no fear. You have suddenly submersed into the great state of slumber neither feeling ashamed nor having doubts. Here came that in which you have no care for how accessible you are to the external world. All that is superfluous has been superseded by the joyful anticipation of a journey – nothing else matters. Hitherto unknown beasts have picked up the instruments and taken places around you. The Guide reveals the password. Breathe in his wake and do not be afraid of being naked amongst this new world. It shall soon save you.
