The chapter The Shape of the Data refers to two stories once again; the first, explains Elena's report to the Costa Rican Government, and the second introduces a woman named Alice Levin at the office of Dr. Richard Stone.

It is the final chapter of the First Iteration.


Despite the terror that Elena Morales had seen the night that the newborn child was born, she had not reported the cause of death, in fear of being criticized. Back in Stone's office at Columbia University, a woman named Alice Levin looked at the drawing that Tina Bowman had made and called it a dinosaur. Stone, of course, called that claim ridiculous and absurd, yet Levin demanded something be done to ensure that it wasn't a dinosaur. Stone said that despite her request, he would do nothing at all.
