Description Edit

A petal is described as a tightly packed grouping of IDENTICAL WHITE ARCS. They come apart with some effort like the ribs of a small rodent.

Origin Edit

A petal is produced by using a WOODWORKING FILE to whittle down the remains of an Aged Funnel.

Connectivity Edit

Euclid soon discovers that Petals can be connected to each other, and once connected, cannot be detached:

He is able to get two Petals to join by touching them together end to end. He strains to pull them apart but can't.

A connected set of Petals is later described as a flower.

Alternate Purpose Edit

Later in the script, a Chorus is seen turning a decayed funnel into power, which is then used to feed the Circle Frond, which was originally held inside the maker / govenor:

The Plywood Chorus has put the just-dug-up Decayed Funnel on the Leaves of the Circle Frond. It is grinding it into powder 
with its Hands, feeding the Frond.
