These are complicated and highly theoretical concepts, but Dartnell manages to convey them without lecturing like a professor of philosophy. One way this is done is by the creative use of lighting, designed by Katharine Williams. At the start of the show Dartnell explains the two spotlights that will sporadically appear.

There’s also the white light of religion that shines down, which he states he will skirt around but not dive directly into.
