“There are no telegrams on Tralfamadore. But you’re right: each clump of symbols is a brief, urgent message-describing a situation, a scene. We Tralfamadorians read them all at once, not one after another…. There is no beginning, no middle, no end, no suspense, no moral, no causes, no effects. What we love in our books are the depths of many marvelous e moments seen ally at one time.”(88)
The picture connects to the quote because it is showing many views of one place at different times and different specific spots. Each picture holds a different “moment” such as the writings of the Tralfamadorian writings that show many moments of the same idea at once.
I think that being able to read a book this way would be quite beautiful. You could “read” one scene that happens to be placed on an island and understand so much about the scene without having to imagine it yourself. The images of the ocean and sand and people would just appear and you would be placed in that constantly moving moment. Except you probably wouldn’t be able to notice it was moving so you merely let what you see unravel before you.
