Notes about game

1.) The name "Dolores" means "sorrow."
     The name "Peter" means "rock."

     Peter is Dolores' rock; hershoulder to cry on and support in hard times.

2.) The name "Noah" means "comfort."

    When Dolores finally reaches Noah's room, she finds comfort in that she could move on from such a terrible experience of losing her baby.

3.) Dolores' last name is "Worth."

     Dolores's sufferings (her name) have not been for nothing.  There is value in suffering.  It makes us stronger and shows us what we are capable of.

4.) The magazine article was written by "Dr. John Scenedama."

     The name refers to St. John Damascene (reverse last name) who wrote about the seasons playing a role in balancing or unbalancing the humors in his "Exposition of the Orthodox Faith."

5.) The dreams were obviously a playful combination (like dreams usually are) of the magazine article, the poem, and Dolores' psychological trauma.

6.)  Each liquid represents one of the four temperaments/humors.  Pouring each liquid in the table represents her dealing with a particular struggle (she feels better every timeand sees the floating object above the table clearer each time) finally arriving at a "proper mixture."
