Didja Notice?


The "bird" that attacks Steel on the roof of the apartment building is a swan. This may be because the actual physical object that was moving against Steel was a down-stuffed pillow.


Steel demonstrates extreme strength when he pulls on and twists up an elevator cable from the elevator shaft.


The voice in the walls of the apartment seems to transform the baby Benny into an older boy (who soon becomes a young man) while speaking the statements, "Time is the measure of durational continuous existence without reference to extension in space. Absolute time is unrelated to matter or motion, and is continuous, unlimited, and infinitely divisible. Relative time, by which duration is measured with reference to things. Sidereal time is based on the rotation of the Earth with respect to the stars. Solar time is based on the same movement with respect to the sun. And as the solar day varies in length, because of the Earth's own movement in its orbit, time is measured by clocks, chronometers, etc. is computed on the basis of an average, or mean, solar day. Solar time is always at the same length and has no real existence."


Rothwyn records a report from her urban study group to the rural study group. Eldred also mentions a provincial study group a bit later.


Near the end of the episode, why does Sapphire have tears on her face as she talks about time with Steel?
