You unlock this door with the key of imagination. Beyond it is another dimension - a dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind. You're moving into a land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas. You've just crossed over into the Twilight Zone.

Through Moses’ eyes, he glimpses a shimmering light.
The craggy hills gleam in the distance.

The Hebrews sigh in relief.
Shouts of joy sound throughout the desert.

Grizzled Moses sighs as he hobbles toward the mountain.

Moses sees the flaming bush.

“Moses,” God’s voice booms majestically, “you’ve done well, and freed the Hebrews.”

Moses’ heart pounds with a sharp pain. He clutches his breast, and collapses to the ground.
The Hebrews cry as their leader lies on the ground.

Moses’ eyes blacken as his pain vanishes. A white light flashes.
“Welcome to Heaven,” God booms, as Moses approaches Heaven’s gold plated gates.
