Right now, their specific assignment at the Tower of Babel is one of Aunt Ella's inventions, a two-way television that lets them talk to the dead.
Happy Days Ahead
It is a beautiful day, and Jacob has become two women, Allele and Zillah Lamech, genetic researchers who use the visible patterns of mutating corn as their tool. The funds for their research come from funds left by their grandfather, James Hive-Maker, and his half-sister, Ella Spiralum, who emigrated to Alamogordo some years before, wealthy with profits made in their Mesopotamian beekeeping business. Under Ella's direction, they began a flight simulation company in their new country, where even in the current day, Ella continues the variety of her experiments. The four brothers of Allele and Zillah work at the company's research center, currently engaged in research towards a two way television meant to let them speak directly to the dead. It is work which has had success, as the dead have appeared on the device, promising the family and their new world a thousand years of peace... and so, at the end of all worlds, we see the beginning of a delicate darkness. From far away, in departure, we can see their world, self-embedded and rotating in a dark shared with this movie's titles.
