Mateusz named the track? I thought it was ThumbMonks.

but it is Mateusz who describes the location, no?

Perhaps we can ask him.

Maybe in Submachine, Church has a different meaning than it does in our world. Submachine is host to many things much differently than ours. Floating buildings, portals that can take you long distances.

I liken it to any race or culture whose words and meanings are different than our own.

It just seems weird though, that a mosque would be a church while other things are what you would expect them to be. Sewers are sewers. A lighthouse is a lighthouse.

I insist the name "church".

I do not think the building at Layer 2 has deviated too much from Byzantine architecture. It sure looks like a mosque but there are still two things which are off, namely the floor and the spherical dome. Especially Islamic architecture does not use a spherical dome on the outside (they often make it pointy). It actually looks like Hagia Sophia to me.

Wow, I forgot completely about the Hagia Sophia.

Maybe Layer 2 is simply one of those places that's a direct mix of two different cultures. (Like the 32 Chambers)

The building we see could easily be just a hybrid of a mosque and a basilica that has church-like structures on the outside and mosque-like structures on the inside. The arches and walls are clearly Islamic, but the dome and the floor are clearly those of a church.

EDIT: However, I do not withdraw my statement. :shock: I still think "Cardinal Mosque" is appropriate and give equal representation to both cultures involved.

I noticed that Submachine 8: the Plan has a capital P now. So any theories associated with the lowercase p are gone, I guess.

It's already a location name.

Actually... it is the name for Sector 9 where access to the Temple is located in Layer 5.

You can pretty sure bet that the Exit is the location's name as well.

It's more consistent with the rest of the series that way :)
