The absence of weight and aspects of size provides an opportunity for the video to describe a gigantic, or a microscopic, universe. The place of streams, that has no horizon, can expand out in the room through the eye of the beholder.

The title Mare Tranquillitatis (Sea of Tranquility) aims at the place where the first lunar expedition, Apollo II, landed. In the old days, it was thought the dark spots on the moon were seas, which gave rise to the name.
