In 2021, an adventure began that led the Traveler through cosmic layers, diving deeper and deeper into the abyss of understanding. Now, two years after the beginning of the journey, the mixed feelings of fear have been replaced with peace of mind as his physical form dissolves into a sea of textures.

The View follows the Traveler’s story as he lets go of the final traces of his physical form while venturing into the unknown.

“Our individual growth represents the advancement of the species. The exploration of the cosmos is a voyage of self-discovery.”
-Carl Sagan
