Chapter 19


Two years ago, when I came to Nohin to study, I was fresh off Machiit and I was unwilling to actually land on a new planet.  Convinced that my way of life in space was essential and unchangeable, I tricked myself into believing in artificial gravity.  I floated in space, but I mistakenly believed that my own space ship contained my own gravity.  From high above I watched the beautiful worlds below longingly, frustratingly, without knowing why.  I believed I didn't need a planet to orbit at all.  This is a very dangerous belief and it leads to long lonely journeys with extreme space sickness.
