The nautilus was floating in the midst of a phosphorescent layer, which in the semi darkness seemed extraordinarily bright. This effect was produced by Myriads of tiny luminous animals whose glitter increased as they touched the submarine's hole. I also saw flashes of light in the midst of these waters, looking like streams of melted lead in a blazing furnace or metal brought to a red white heat. They were such that, by contrast, some of the other luminous areas were like shadows in the fiery waters, from which all shadows should have disappeared. No, this was no longer the calm gleam of normal light. It was full of extraordinary intensity and movement. This light felt as if it were alive.
