This book is composed of two arcs. Both are launched from the surface of the Earth. The first does not escape gravity and ends abruptly. The second, however, does, and its series of instantiations continues off, past the sun, into infinity. Of the second arc only an excerpt is given in this version.

That is to say, the relation is multiple and a desert.
