Alexa has just graduated from college, and is packing up from her favorite class and telling her beloved teacher ____ goodbye. She discovers the teacher’s back room filled with interesting items that come right out of very rare story books she enjoyed reading. The teacher asks, “So you’ve read the ___ and the ___? That’s the mark of a great mind. A great mind indeed.” Teacher offers Alexa a sort of exchange student internship at a very exclusive and amazing University that sounds amazing. …Except she has to leave right that moment! Alexa is dubious but loves the idea. Teacher seems to pack her up rather quick, giving her a few gifts and quick confusing advice as she rushes her out the door and to the front of the street where an odd looking hand pushed cart is waiting. She hands Alexa a few quarters to pay for the Ticket (the man asked for coppers, but the quarters seemed to be acceptable), and he gives her a ticket. Alexa is ushered in to a box that looks more like a set of chest drawers from the outside, but setting in to it, it looks like a very comfortable train. The whole thing is moving and she’s off before she can catch her breath.
Alexa arrives at her destination – which looks like a huge tower of random buildings all put together and stacked up like building blocks. Someone meets her out front, commenting about how atrocious this years University looks, and mentions that he thought the yearly contest for students to design the structure was a horrible idea. There’s a huge golden archway leading in to the University grounds that says “University of Infinitas Sententia”. Upon crossing under the archway, the University then looks much more like a normal building, but huge, beautiful, and well laid out. There’s very odd contraptions and creatures around the place. Inside the building is no different. Her guide is little help in explaining things, he just tells her that her room is ready, her assigned professor will meet her tomorrow, and she must be a grand thinker to be recommended by Teacher.
The University of Infinitas Sententia or University of “Infinite Thinking” seems to be some sort of magical place dedicated to actually dreaming up and making happen the extraordinary things that happen in stories, legends, and myth. The entire place seems to be a haphazard collection of all these thoughts and creations. Professors have their specialties and pass on tips and tricks to “grand imagining” to younger generations that must continue the thinking. Apparently without the University, nothing interesting would ever happen anywhere. Life would be a bland, repetitive, and monotonous existence.
