Just the Outlander chapter

The chapter starts with Brianna being the only one awake that night. She is writing while Adso is curled up on her legs. However, Adso digging his claws into her makes her get up and she decides to get into bed. Roger has woken by Adso being placed near him on the bed.

This is when the two get into a discussion about time travel. Bree spends her time sharing how she’s thinking about what happens to a person after they die while time traveling. Why do some of them not make it all the way through, and what happens to them?

The topic of ley lines comes up, and Roger shares that he knows about them from folk lore. They connect the old sites. Bree then brings up how everything is made up of stardust. Is it possible that people are broken down to the dust as they go through the stones. Those that don’t survive, end up remaining as star dust on the ley lines. Those who are able to materialize, get through.

Some people don’t materialized funny, which is what explains heart problems when time traveling.

How do gemstones fit in all this? It’s possible that they help to generate energy to help bodies rematerialize while traveling through time.
