They would show me my victim at the moment of the kill.

White Sands to Space Shuttle
Jacob walks through the night, and the next morning arrives at White Sands, a huge stretch of white dunes made of gypsum particles eroded from a deposit miles away. There, in the dunes, oscillating shapes drop from the sky, breaking through the thin layers of time to show Jacob the variety of forms that the future dead can assume. During this show, the landscape fragments ; Jacob rides the pieces to a tower in the desert. This is a transit point, where he meets the Space Shuttle as it drops from the sky. The shuttle takes him back to his bed at the Garden of Eden, where there is a message waiting for him in his grandfather's diary, written by the dead. The message tells him that he will not be able to stop walking until he has found the victim that the future dead intend for him to kill, somewhere on another planet inside the earth.... the bees, waiting for him there, will identify the victim for him on his arrival. At the end of this communication, Jacob returns to the White Sands.
