Embroidered on a fine silk cloth. The most obvious array of linked spheres in the spherepath are arranged in two symmetric arcs: the eye-feathers of each peacock. However, there are also many subsidiary multisphere structures that can be seen here:
- The matrix of spheres directly between the two peacocks' heads;
- The matrix on spheres on each peacock's back, just behind the neck; and
- The plant-like structure flanking each peacock, each of which is crowned by a bud of flower comprised of a cluster of spheres.
This particular spherepath is more than a representation of a set of connected spheres. The silk on which the map is embroidered is part of the fabric of the multiverse. In other worlds, this representation of gates and spheres is holographic and real. A normal spherewalker can use this spherepath as a guide.
A spherewalker with the special power and the training required to identify the Silk Portal within the spherepath will be able meditate upon the spherepath and open a gate into the textile. They will be transported directly to the Gateway Sphere within the spherepath. Once they have arrived, the Silk Portalist can use the spherepath's map to find and access gates between the spheres represented on the map. This is a normal spherewalk.
The secondary matrices or clusters of spheres represented on this textile are typically accessed via a different kind of gate. When these gates cannot be located, a desperate spherewalker may take matters into their own hand, suturing folds in the cloth to connect distant spheres directly to each other. This suturing activity creates consequences for both worlds, as well as for other surrounding spheres whose qualities may be distorted or changed by the folds in the fabric of the spherepath.
One question remains: since the silk that makes up this spherepath is truly part of the fabric of the universe, who wove the silk?
