- As above, so below...
repeats Ferran like an automaton. He slowly lifts his hands to his mouth to swallow the coin. Then he stops and eyes the wyrm once again. The Catalan says with an unexplicable urge.

- Grant me a name -- your name -- my serpentine conspirator. For we are one now my friend. As above, so below.

He swallows the coin, the sheer cold burning him inside. His mind explodes, his body emmiting a cold light, his being nearly consumed in the process, while Ferran starts speaking in tongues.

The wyrm continues. "As within, so without, as the universe, so the soul…"

In response, Ferran continues his tongues in Greek "And as all things have been and arose from one by the meditation of one: so all things have their birth from this one thing by adaptation."

The world around Ferran collapses, smothering him with light and warming him. As a far away whisper he hears the serpent's parting words in the sister tongue of Macedonian "Јас сум Ала."*
