“Yes,” Roc said. “But a window so thin we’d never see it looking at it from the side. And that actually explains why Triana passed out.”
“Why?” Channy said.
“Because the transition between the two sides of a wormhole is not only a division of space, but a division of space/time. It’s one time on one side, and another on the other side. It could be an infinitely small discrepancy in time, or an infinitely large discrepancy. But the point is, the two sides are not only in different places, but in different times. Triana’s brain was essentially in two places—and two times—at the same time, until she passed all the way through. And even though it only took a fraction of a second to pass through the boundary, her mind was in two places and two times at the same moment. That caused her brain to shut down instantly. A sort of reboot, if you will, for safety purposes.”
