"The four points of the compass be logic, knowledge, wisdom, and the unknown. Some do bow in that final direction. Others advance upon it. To bow before the one is to lose sight of the three."

Or can you actually pump up the magnification on any of them and start to make out a shape? I'd assume they would be too small for that but some are also pretty close so I'm not sure.
