What word was that again?

She talks so quickly, and in such long words, that it's hard work getting it all down. The next day on review the notes look like they were taken down by a drunk man. What's this bit? Idiography?

And did she really say that the heart is able to turn into a form of cabbage?

But if the artery grows there, then...

The more you concentrate, the less sense it makes. There are two or three ideas clear enough to hang on to, but the rest is imponderable. You are not sure that what the Acolyte says is even true.

Successful event
Close study, rewarded

The Acolyte talks on happily, indifferent to the passage of time, while a gaunt man comes and carries away a crate of black pellets bound for delivery to the Masters.
