The eleventh and final track on bis's 2001 album, return to central.

This track bleeds out slowly, distancing the listener from the frenetic action in the previous scene. Through a slow stretch you move gradually away and upward, mimicking an actual ascent through the stratosphere (in a very idealized space==silent sort of way). Your heartbeat slows, your feet lift off the floor almost before you notice. You are layers away from the earth, floating in a capsule outside an earth-shaped capsule, layered in air and cloud and water and land. You look through the window of your camera, through the window of the capsule, through the layers of air on air on air.
