The way forward
(see table below)
|1 - 19||[…] flagstones become a staircase […] and below you is a valley […] a bubbling hot spring of broth. Beside the broth-spring is a man in a chef's uniform who invites you to be clothed in dumpling-dough and bob in the soup […] You lose track of time […]|
|20 - 39||[…] You are getting smaller as you walk, so that […] becomes a sort of labyrinth […] Then they widen even further […] and you are traveling at the bottom of the crevasse […]
A little longer […] and you are walking again in Parabola.
|40 - 59||[…] tired of walking on your legs, so you grow arms in their place. The sensation of walking on your hands is a pleasant one[…]
[…] you become self-conscious about your leg-arms, because they do not fit very well in your clothes[…] So you grow your feet again.
|60 - 79||You stroll through a forest that comes up to your knees. Sometimes your footstep frightens a miniature stag.|
|80 - 89||You fight your way through jungle so thick that you can see no more than a few feet ahead. The leaves are always in your face and the vines always underfoot.|
|90 - 94||You walk for a very long time: so long, in fact, that you begin to walk in your own footsteps over again. They grow deeper and deeper each time you pass this way.|
|95 - 98||You pass through a valley of ash. At the far end, a few trees are slowly un-burning, forming themselves out of charcoal stumps. It is terribly cold.|
|99 - 100||You walk across a desert floor. In the middle of nowhere is a vast pile of top hats. Those at the bottom of the pile look worn and out of fashion. It takes a long time to walk past the hats, and new ones continue to rain from the sky.|
