On their way to the surface world by train, Doc explains to Ichise that his texhnolyzed limbs will be greatly weakened in the surface world due to dependence on Lux's obelisk. She also confesses that she used her cells as a biocircuit for the texhnolyzed limbs, being the reason why she lied before. Upon entry, they discover that the world above is sparsely populated. Keiichi Saginuma, a male disembodied voice who then appears as a little girl, accompanies them to see the government office building, where Sakimura plans to resume his work with his coworker Yamashita. However, they learn that Saginuma is apathetic to the news of the invasion, commenting on how the production of raffia to utilize texhnolyzation has been rendered useless in the surface world. Both disappointed, Ichise and Doc wander the streets and find a classic movie theater, which shows a film depicting how Lux was created when the Class rounded up people who were thought to be imperfect or impure of thought, killing many and forcing the rest into the underground city.
