What it was, so far as I could tell, was the surface of our three-spacial universe, but with a fuckton of tiny little extensions out into four-space. From what I could see, they were part of the human nervous system, in the frontal lobes. Whatever, I'm not a biologist. They looked pretty blurry in what I had so, taking a few more readings of the same coordinates, I figured out that they're actually vibrating. There you go, not so amazing, but whatever.
Anyway, while it was interesting, I sure as hell wasn't going to get a Nobel Prize for this, so I kept taking readings.
This is where it gets shocking. I was taking more readings of what I'd dubbed 'the abyss', the seemingly empty sections of four-space which I assume are the gaps between planets or something, and I made out a faint splotch out in the distance. I cleaned my equipment a few times, disassembling and reassembling it, but the splotch didn't go away. There was something out there.
Anyway, this too was interesting, but unlikely to get me a nobel prize, shitloads of money and a Nintendo DS, so I built an enhanced version of my apparatus, which would hopefully increase the magnification and let me see what celestial object I could see.
Well, I was wrong, but not about the magnification. It wasn't some kind of hyperspacial planet or star. No, this was unmistakably biological. I mean, from what I could see. You have to understand that human eyes and, infact, most of our bodies function only with three-spacial stimuli, so this whole time I've only been getting snatches of things. Weird cross sections. Whatever.
