Third Recording in J'nanin
"This what you expected, Atrus? When you followed me here, hoping to reclaim Releeshahn? Is this classroom what you expected to find?
I read your journal, you know. In Tomahna, after I found your linking book abandoned outside this observatory. I read all about the D'ni, how you started their world again. Can you really do that, Atrus? After everything that's happened to Narayan, could you start the world over again? I don't think so. I think there's too much blood on our hands, too many ghosts. Surely you can't change that with a pen stroke.One more symbol, Atrus. Narayan is waiting."
