Transcript: 

But the dominating hum of engines drowns the delicate vibrations without, and the laws of pressure design to give great pain to the ears as we descend toward the other world again. So I'll leave you here, where I remain, in the memory of that sphere of sensitive majesty in which I intended this lovely afternoon. It is to have touched a world where there is no thing which is not beautiful. Ever.
Eric.
