“There are many universes and many earths, parallel to each other. World's like yours were people's souls live inside their bodies and world's like mine where they walk beside us as animal spirits, we call daemons. So many worlds but connecting them all is dust, dust was here before the witches of the air, the gyptians of the water, and the bears of the ice. In my world scholars invented an elithiometer, a golden compass and it showed them all that was hidden. But the ruling power fearing any truth but their own decided to destroy these devises and forbade the very mention of dust. One compass remains however and only one who can read it.”
