Part of a sequence of three along with Radio 35 and 36. They read "The transitory entities break down, and the room is filled with radiolight'.
The message arrives, in some sense. The message is perhaps simply that the room is always bathed in 'radiolight', in cosmic information. But perhaps the point of the messenger is not so much that we have to hear its message, as much as that we have to feel that the message is around us, always. It isn't necessarily about the passing through or the passing on of entities, even ourselves, as much as it is to do with the continuity of being.
I didn't realise up until I rewatched it a couple of months ago that this book owes a debt to the Robert Zemeckis film version of Carl Sagan's book Contact. There are sequences there that explore the passage outward of elecromagnetic information into the cosmos, and of course the film explores conlations of metaphysical and scientific truths. In sequences following on here, I'll take my viewer into the human cosmos instead, but it's the same place, really.
