As Bak was exploring the Alaska terrain from on and off the ship, he contemplated nature. He saw that people treat science as more of an autopsy: something to be examined and nothing else. Bak sees nature as more of an enhancement on scientific study.
As he presented slides of moving through the Alaskan scenery, his thoughts drifted. Instead of continuing with his meditation on science, he jumped back to comics. He said that comics are visual symbols that do not have to include text. Through these narratives we understand ourselves and our world. Bak sees comics as being absurd, but that makes them a perfect fit for explaining our world. Against the screen, images of the scenery of Alaska traveled on.
