Jacob is putting on his helmet, knotting up the string which holds it on. The window is his tv; but he won't climb through. Polite, he'll use the ordinary door.
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.
