(I don't have a picture for this character. Sorry.)
...this is Professor Everald, recording experimental procedure 18-Drove. The plane of reflection has immanentized, and I can see...
...hey, what's this bubble coming through? I didn't call that. Has that tapioca-headed Water Forming journeyman been sleeping in here again, and leaving his weird dreams lying around? At least this one doesn't have any of those creepy inflatable pooltoys in it...
Wait, there's someone reflected in the bubble, but the image is hazy... is that a hamster, or someone else?
What I'm proud of? Well, along with my colleagues at Sophia University, I've directed a research project that's developed a theoretical framework to model the Noosphere, the etheric space composed of the thoughts of sapient beings. If the test cases based on our current theory succeed, then for the first time, it will be possible for living people to enter and study the layout of mental space in situ, instead of merely observing impressions of single objects or calling them into the physical world, but, ah, what's this reading...
The thaumatic background radiation within the bubble is out of phase with the baseline! That shouldn't be possible, unless...
Comets and Cobblestones, this is incredible! The Noosphere doesn't just contain the thoughts of beings from our own world, but from other planes of existence!
Well, whoever you are, I suppose I might as well ask if you have anything to say about the question that inspired this project: does the physical world govern our thoughts, or is it our thoughts that shape the physical world through our actions?

That's where the fin tried to drag me in
Don't look at me, look at where I'm pointing
Close your eyes, see what I see, Canajoharie..."
