|The third excerpt represents the element of Water. It speaks of pure spiritual influences and feelings of love, and is drawn from U. S. Project Trinity Report by Carl Maag and Steve Rohrer:
o Provide monitors to conduct radiological surveys onsite and offsite
o Provide and maintain radiation detection instruments

An exposure limit of 5 roentgens during a two-month period was
established. Personnel were provided with radiation detection
instruments to determine their exposures (1).
The Medical Group consisted of physicians, scientists, and
administrators, as well as radiological monitors. Many of these
personnel were nonmilitary, but all worked on the Manhattan Project
under the administration of the Army Corps of Engineers Manhattan
|The fourth excerpt represents the element of Earth. It speaks of physical influences and the impact of the unseen on the visible world, and is drawn from Charmides and Other Poems by Oscar Wilde:
Eagle of Austerlitz! where were thy wings
When far away upon a barbarous strand,
In fight unequal, by an obscure hand,
Fell the last scion of thy brood of Kings!
Poor boy! thou shalt not flaunt thy cloak of red,
Or ride in state through Paris in the van
Of thy returning legions, but instead
Thy mother France, free and republican,
Shall on thy dead and crownless forehead place
The better laurels of a soldier's crown,
That not dishonoured should thy soul go down
