What'd you think of Omphalos? The utterly fascinating bit for me is that the last prayer outlines basically the same mental shift I had to do, and coincidentally the scientific push for me to do that was also learning a bit of astronomy.

I feel like that shift could have been better foreshadowed, though; I feel like it was wanting to be a twist of an ending, and in my opinion such an ending should lend a new perspective on a re-reading of the story. I'm not sure this one does.
