Wang Miao visits Ding Yi, Yang Dong’s grieving fiancée, who recounts, in an odd game of billiards, Yang Dong’s frustration at the extreme variability of the results from the particle accelerator, as well as her disturbed reaction at the evidence in Prof. Munphy’s death. Wang Miao reluctantly accepts his invitation in The Frontiers of Science and, upon returning to a meeting, witnesses a fellow group member’s psychological deterioration when faced with the group’s main hypothesis – that mankind occupies a realm of existence, the viewpoint of which dooms it into inevitable ignorance about the full nature of reality, forever stuck at the frontier of science. Later, at Yang Dong’s funeral, he meets her mother – Ye Wenjie, to give her the photograph he took of her daughter, but notices an odd timestamp on it, and promises to give her a correctly developed photograph. However, at his home studio, he discovers that all of his photos have a similar timestamp. After experimenting with his old camera, he comes to the conclusion that the timestamps are a countdown that ends in 49 days.
