In Response To: Possible texts that inspired some names? (Spectracide)

: I was Googling one of my favorite level names from Marathon, "Where are
: monsters in dreams", and found this link:
: http://www.santharia.com/library/tales/dreadlords.htm

: "As the wheels of the world carode in the heat of decay we must ask
: ourselves, *where are monsters in dreams?* ..."
: Could this book be where Bungie got the name?

From the link:

"As the wheels of the world carode in the heat of decay we must ask ourselves, where are monsters in dreams? And as we awaken from the illusion within an illusion within greater illusions we can only look in awe upon the ordered chaos of this our world, while finding ourselves searching for the mysteries of further worlds and the outer most rings of a continued circle that we in our foolish child-like desperation call reality, while a greater essence beyond the comprehension of any who fail to open the 3rd door and step into..."

I think that the references to illusions works will for Infinity.
