"the tranquil inscrutability of her visage: the terribility of her isolated dominant implacable resplendent propinquity:" (U17.1165)
"her omens of tempest and of calm: the stimulation of her light, her motion and her presence:" (U17.1167)
"the admonition of her craters, her arid seas, her silence:" (U17.1168)
"her splendour, when visible:" (U17.1169)
"her attraction, when invisible." (U17.1169)

In the second storey (rere) of his (Bloom's) house the light of a paraffin oil lamp with oblique shade" (U17.1171)
"projected on a screen of roller blind supplied by Frank O'Hara, window blind, curtain pole and revolving shutter manufacturer, 16 Aungier street. " (U17.1174)
"Were they indefinitely inactive?
At Stephen's suggestion, at Bloom's instigation both, first Stephen, then Bloom, in penumbra urinated, their sides contiguous, their organs of micturition reciprocally rendered invisible by manual circumposition, their gazes, first Bloom's, then Stephen's, elevated to the projected luminous and semiluminous shadow.
The trajectories of their, first sequent, then simultaneous, urinations were dissimilar: Bloom's longer, less irruent, in the incomplete form of the bifurcated penultimate alphabetical letter," (U17.1185)

What different problems presented themselves to each concerning the invisible audible collateral organ of the other?

"How did the centripetal remainer afford egress to the centrifugal departer?
By inserting the barrel of an arruginated male key in the hole of an unstable female lock, obtaining a purchase on the bow of the key and turning its wards from right to left, withdrawing a bolt from its staple, pulling inward spasmodically an obsolescent unhinged door and revealing an aperture for free egress and free ingress.
How did they take leave, one of the other, in separation?
Standing perpendicular at the same door and on different sides of its base, the lines of their valedictory arms, meeting at any point and forming any angle less than the sum of two right angles." (U17.1214)
