Thankyou for the kind words.  Yes the image did have a recurring scifi 
attraction for me.  Like the opening shot of a movie where some sort of 
multidimensional sensor picks up an intruder, or a multidimensional 
intruder endangers a isolated human or, or...

though a sense of the transience of humans, accentuated by hostile 
environs, as starting point for rumination (as you say), was probably 
the more enduring thing I had in mind.  As usually with me, I got pretty 
far afield from the original intensions of the topic.
