我在一個狹小低矮且陰暗的冰下甬道中,四周潔白光滑而寒冷。我一路匍匐前進,經過無數曲折如迷宮般的轉角和小階梯,直到我找尋到一個位於上方的光源,並朝著光源沿著梯子往一個煙囪狀的細長出口向上爬。最終我爬出地底,周圍只有白霧跟冷冽的空氣。我向下一望,煙囪狀的出口遠端是急速變遠縮小到猶如一個模型的地球。 我突然意識到,我剛從地球的南極穿越地心中央,抵達北極。

I was in a narrow, low and dark passage underneath the ice, and I was surrounded by the white, smooth and freezing ice. I crawled all the way through endless winding corners and small steps just like I was in a maze. I kept crawling until I found a light source above. Then I climbed up along a ladder towards a chimney-like narrow exit, where the light came from. Finally I reached the surface, surrounded only by fog and cold air. I looked down, the end of the chimney-like exit is a globe, which was rapidly shrinking to a miniature size. I suddenly realized that I had just gone through the center of earth from the South Pole to the North Pole.
