You're going to have to imagine that this happened at night, because it did if it happened at all. How we imagine his soul considering between here & there. Wherever there is. On a glass planet or something & how the soul considers & where no one really knows. But we imagine this temporary departure. Or at least some believe the wager took place & I guess that means if his soul came back to fill the half of his body that it animates that perhaps the other half is still on that glass planet looking down. As if earth is a downward destination. Like a yoga pose where all the action happens. Like how the sun has to hightail it down behind whatever is in the west for night to happen & for all of us to glimpse those glass planets.
