INT. ELEVATOR – DAY
Falling upward, Jill and I stare blankly into the car’s interior panel, marveling at the banquet of call options its many buttons have to offer…

Travel dynamics would shift, as new options emerge—fractional floors, for example. You could divide one prime number by another, call a floor with a repeating decimal, and wind up in a place you never thought you could be…
Yes. And consider what possibilities which might arise with the inclusion of operators like square root, or natural logarithm. Negative numbers…
If you called the square root of a negative number, you could wind up on an imaginary floor!
A tone sounds, indicating stop. The double doors part…
Why don’t you go to an imaginary floor?
