Nolan believes the Eyeonasphere will bring the world peace.

 

In it, he saw the Heavens.  He saw the threads holding everything together.  He thought he saw a way to save the damned...

 

Ida stood by, his willing assistant...

 

She gives him courage.  With her help, poison won't effect him.  She helps aleviate the anxiety.  With her, there is no pain.
