The colourless clearness that comes after the sunset flush was darkling; the blue sky above grew momentarily deeper, and the little stars one by one pierced the attenuated light; the interspaces
of the trees, the gaps in the further vegetation, that had been hazy blue in the daylight, grew black and mysterious.
This wall was adorned, at regular interspaces
, by square towers of white marble; the lowest sixty, and the highest one hundred and twenty cubits- in height.
Then the new molecular philosophy shows astronomical interspaces
betwixt atom and atom, shows that the world is all outside; it has no inside.
The wood is alive with them, and full of confused noises: the occasional rattle of wheels as a battery of artillery goes into position to cover the advance; the hum and murmur of the soldiers talking; a sound of innumerable feet in the dry leaves that strew the interspaces
among the trees; hoarse commands of officers.
This is only a record of broken and apparently unrelated memories, some of them as distinct and sequent as brilliant beads upon a thread, others remote and strange, having the character of crimson dreams with interspaces
blank and black--witch-fires glowing still and red in a great desolation.
Tess sat up in bed, lost in a vague interspace
between a dream and this information.
The answer, as I believe, is, that mammals have not been able to migrate, whereas some plants, from their varied means of dispersal, have migrated across the vast and broken interspace
Implants were at costal interspaces
just caudal to the caudal edge of the rib near the intercostal nerve and approximately 1 cm deep (Figure 1).
Colour in life (Figs 1-3) and in preservation: white to pale, overlain on head, trunk and tail with about 50 or more brown saddles, extending from base of dorsal fin to ventral edge of flank (many saddles incomplete, some irregular, and all wider than pale interspaces
, meeting along ventral surface posterior to anus); snout, chin, and anterior nostrils markedly white; eye within brown mask, followed by two diagonal bands and several eye-sized brown spots; throat and anteroventral trunk region overlain with several eye-sized brown spots; pectoral fins pale; median fin margins pale, brown body saddles extending onto base of dorsal fins; tail tip pale.
Microsculpture of undulating spiral striae in interspaces
and on ribs.
Attempts at the interspaces
above and below the initial insertion point were unsuccessful.
Noteworthy colour features are the four dark orangish brown bars on the body with irregular dark markings in the bluish to whitish interspaces
, the dark brown, blue, and orange markings on the head, the ocellated orange spots on the dorsal spines (the spines of females tipped with orange), the second dorsal fin with an orange spot just posterior to ray tips, the basal part of anal with adjacent longitudinal bands of black, orange, blue, and blue-green, the orange upper margin of the caudal fin, and the pale blue pelvic fins.
