The sudden awakening into the Swarm. The concept of interface is explored at a superficial level as we are introduced to the island and the mandala.

In the concluding chapter, which takes place solely within the mandala, we see human and machine consciousness together as one. We must use consideration in order to create an idyllic future with symbiosis with machines.
