|'Hometime' by Cathleen Tarawhiti|
Zeta wanted the banner to depict the three domains of the physical universe and three major characters in The First Reality who each inhabit one of the three domains.
To depict Gohrlay, Zeta made use of a DeviantArt stock image called 'Hometime' by Cathleen Tarawhiti. A cropped portion of 'Hometime' is shown to the right on this page. Gohrlay in a normal human who resides in the Hadronic Domain of the universe (the universe of planets and stars).

According to Zeta, the scene in the banner is meant to suggest how beings from the three different physical domains of the universe can interact. After being selected by Talni from among her many clone sisters, Alpha Gohrlay was eventually instantiated at Observer Base. While growing up, Gohrlay believed that Observer Base was located on the Moon, however, Observer Base is actually inside the Hierion Domain. The banner is shown below:

In the banner, Talni is shown reaching through a kind of portal and and trying to make contact with Riaw. The Nereids and the Grendels were carefully nurtured by the bumpha as hadronic lifeforms that could survive for long periods in the Hadronic Domain.
