Possibly the greatest evidence RI's content is becoming more threadbare.

(I can't help it. Cats like to play with string)

scene 1 mixing ingredients

Beleth, Ann, Link. Center stage, kneeling around bottom half of black pyramid.
(Pyramid is small enough to carry, big enough to fit all ingredients inside. Beachball-sized)

Beleth (stage left side) holds apex of pyramid in her lap.

Ann behind pyramid, facing audience, holds Pixel kitty in her arms.

Link (stage right side) opens box of Boo Berry cereal.

In front of pyramid:

draw-string pouch
mason jar of ink
Maru Mari (softball-sized, orange-and-yellow swirl-colored)
Reaper Orb (crystal ball, slightly larger)
Rat Tail (gold 6' guitar cable)
Athame (onyx cat on ivory hilt)

***

(lights up)

Ann gives Pixel pets and head-scratches occasionally, distractedly.

Link: (pours Boo Berry into pyramid) Every grain of sand is a dead Pac-Man.

Ann: When he opens his mouth, where does the yellow go?

Beleth: Hilbert space. A Purrr state.

***

Link puts down empty box, picks up pouch of dirt, unties draw-string.

Ann: Is that like purrrgatory?

Link: (pours dirt into pyramid) The qubit state is like purrrgatory. Where you're simultaneously alive and dead.

Ann: Sounds like an everyday place for everyday people.

***

Link: (puts down empty pouch, picks up Reaper Orb) It is. (drops Reaper Orb in) And it was.

Beleth: But now you're in a quantum supurrrposition.

Link: I am. (picks up Maru Mari) It's a purrradox. (drops Maru Mari in)

Ann: I think you're doing magic on me.

***

Link: (picks up Rat Tail, feeds it in) I can't help it, cats like to play with string.

Beleth: Link doesn't do magic. He practices spooky action at a distance.

Link: (picks up mason jar, unscrews cap) My tentacles reach out for you. (pours squid ink in)

Beleth: (looking down at Athame) Isn't the Dancing Knife sharper?

Link: Yes. However... (picks up Athame) the Athame of Souls has a cat on it. (shows hilt to audience)

***

Ann: (not quite a question) Even with all the changes, you still have to bleed.

Link: (science professor tone) For when the pyramid passes through the Chaos Ring. This way, when I split into three bodies, the pyramid also splits in three.

Ann: (softly, looking up, giving Pixel distracted pets) oh.

(lights fade)
Both his words and manner of speech seemed at first totally unfamiliar to me, and yet somehow they stirred memories - as an actor might be stirred by the forgotten lines of some role he had played far away and long ago.
