Sykes did not have a clear view of the monitor. Instead, he focused on the greenish aura that caressed the spikes of Ultra’s hair and felt something snap. It was as though he were sucked into the monitor through the back of Ultra’s head. Numbers and letters in a variety of fonts and point sizes flashed by like images in a 360-degree theater. Thin filaments of phosphorescent color snaked around him like the glowing trails of fireflies against the black of night. Every so often, they formed an entire 3-D network in myriad geometric forms, first as a cube; then as an ovoid, and so forth. Each time one faded, it was replaced by another. This succession progressed at such a frantic pace it appeared as an ever-changing lattice that morphed into any shape it desired. With more intense concentration, Sykes saw digitally written information within this greater framework. But, instead of characters and numbers set next to one another, they lined up in a progressive fashion. Sykes was a microbe swallowed by an interlocking cosmos of living symbols.
