Но корабль по-прежнему целеустремленно скользил над застывшим каменным морем, сгустившимся в многочисленные огромные волны, бросавшие вызов небесам. Вскоре корабль замер – видимо, робот наконец вернулся к самым истокам своих воспоминаний. Под ними, из центра внушительного мраморного амфитеатра, вздымалась колонна из снежно-белого камня.
