->Originating on Terra, the Astronomican is projected through space from a vast, tiered chamber carved from a single mountain peak where a ten-thousand strong choir of trained [[PsychicPowers psykers]] is agonizingly leached of their life energies to empower its divine light. The sheer quantity of such psychic energy generated is vast, and only the mind of the [[GodEmperor Emperor]] is mighty enough to direct such raw power. The prodigious amounts of energy soon reduces these psykers to dry husks of withered flesh, and more must be brought forth every day to replace the corpses of those who have perished. Though their fate is a sad one, [[ShootTheDog it is a necessary one]], for without the Astronomicon, there would be little or no space travel and the Imperium would soon collapse into warring factions.

-->At times one of the adolescent girls or boys who go to see the child does not go home to weep or rage, does not, in fact, go home at all. Sometimes also a man or woman much older falls silent for a day or two, and then leaves home. These people go out into the street, and walk down the street alone. They keep walking, and walk straight out of the city of Omelas, through the beautiful gates. They keep walking across the farmlands of Omelas. Each one goes alone, youth or girl, man or woman. Night falls; the traveler must pass down village streets, between the houses with yellow-lit windows, and on out into the darkness of the fields. Each alone, they go west or north, towards the mountains. They go on. They leave Omelas, they walk ahead into the darkness, and they do not come back. The place they go towards is a place even less imaginable to most of us than the city of happiness. I cannot describe it at all. It is possible that it does not exist. But they seem to know where they are going, the ones who walk away from Omelas.
