The Rest In Pieces

The Rest In Pieces

Ocarina dreamed of a grey stone with the words "Rest in peace" addressed to ourselves by our ancestors In short. they think that we have reached our ancestral land. I can see the truth in what Ottoman told me; it seems very likely that we have attained our homeland. But 1 am very disappointed. Even if—as Otto assures me—the spot itself is congenial—the surroundings are dismal, and not interesting. now that I can see we are in a city. These are the points of similarity of this place with our homeland

i.the rock
ii.within a cily
iii.surrounded by stone walls (so Ottoman has told me)
iv.is it a peninsula? This is the last question I can ask, since this is all that I can remember of the ancients' description of our homeland. There could well be further hints scattered through the journals of Hexatriximenia and Quinquagesima. and even in the Meditations of Pandemonium.
