“It” being the thing once witness by Dodgson, one evening, after many days without sleep, when his thoughts had pondered the slight irregularity in the mirror above his fire place. As his mind wandered, the surface had rippled, its perspective peculiar, as though the very glass had peered at him. As he peered back, the reflection swelled and folded, and allowed him to glimpse beyond.

Dodgson nodded knowingly. As a child he had suffered from a bad case of flu and in his fever dreams witnessed visions so frighteningly real, he had awoken to find his hands bloody, clutching some alien substance, rather like fur. In his 20′s his schooling had suffered as his flights of fancy and an obsession to comprehend this formative experience led him to electric shock treatment and opium.

Henry called for a carriage and they made their way to a disused factory complex on the outskirts of Hackney. Dodgson stood and contemplated what lay ahead as Henry heaved open great rusted doors, He exclaimed “about five years ago I was commissioned by the British government to construct a series of large electromagnetic coils, coils that could generate fields that disrupted other electrical current.

What he saw left a hole in him so wide, he took pen to paper, and attempted to fill it with explanations. But this was not the last time he would see the other place. For a year later, the place would find him, and consume him, only allowing him escape when his wits were entirely broken.

That event had also triggered a life long train of thought, a hypothesis – that not only did planes without surfaces exist, coiled up in quantum voids, accessible via esoteric forms of physics, but also a distinct link between certain brain disorders and an ability to not only see, but pass between the veil that separates us from it.

In the late 1880′s, Henry O’malley often visited Charles Dodgson in pursuit of a number of unpublished thesis on the nature of extra dimensional mathematics. Dodgson was a mathematician, theologian and teacher who had once witnessed something so utterly terrifying that his faith and work had become his only comfort. His short lived but successful foray into literature was little more than a respite, a way to cope with the events that had inspired the subject of those books.

He closed the grand doors behind them and ushered him into a large room, three imposing shapes covered with tarpaulins lay before them. He removed them in a flurry of dust and awe to reveal the blackened iron edifices of the Triplets . They were an ominous sight, towering at nine feet each.
