Jacob holding an individualcomb, staring intently at its surface. A rooster is crowing in the background. He is shrinking, and his suit is shrinking with him.
His Memory Returns:
At Frisch, Jacob is a programmer writing code for gunsite displays in the simulators. The next day, twiddling code, Jacob feels an explosion in his brain, and remembers a previous experience of disapearance at the hives, which seemed to have occured after hearing voices within the comb. He is so disturbed by the memory that he leaves work, heading home to spend the afternoon watching tv. Inevitably, though, Jacob ends up at his hives.
