The Veil mostly keeps us anchored solidly in our own world. But, occasionally, it’ll part for you. It’s far more ephemeral than it looks.

For one fleeting moment, it’s as if you might, with a mere step or two, embark upon a grand adventure of an otherworldly sort.

I say, this is one of the greatest adventures you can take. If The Veil parts for you, Break on Through to the Other Side.
