Okay, I’m having a tinfoil hat thought-train about The Seven Tributes of Fancy Watches (Rochefoucauld) . If I was right about the disc being a kind of time-piece (remember Brandon wears the neogic resonator on his wrist, and describes it looking like a watch, with a crystal disk), maybe that’s what the tributes were. Discs. Given to the dearly departed to send him on his way (to another dimension). Maybe there are seven discs. Maybe it wasn’t really a funeral, but a ritual. Maybe.
I swear sometimes I fee like Roy in Close Encounters sculpting his mashed potatoes. “This is important, this means something”
