On night watch, an exhausted Paul imagines being in a quiet cathedral and thinks about the meadows behind his town. He realizes that all his memories are silent and calm, and that they always make him check his gun in case he gives in to their serenity. The memories do not provoke desire, but sorrow, as they no longer exist in the current world.
