Do people lapse into thought about a thing that has lapsed into not being thought about enough only when the thing makes an empassioned enough plea or offers an incentive…?
Thoughts about being part of a self-contained entity so that going outside it and returning back into it is the only trace of you existing, thoughts also about what you take back in there as a vital clue as to where this place is and how it is possible it’s self-contained (What is an entry/exit point?

I say 48hrs or it is granting license to rule over people with martial law.
