I was reading about "Cats" the musical, which I've never seen, and the premise is apparently that one cat will be chosen to fly up to the "heavyside layer" to be reborn into a new life

The heaviside layer is a real part of the earth's ionosphere. You can bounce radio waves off of it.

TS Eliot was such a weirdo. How the heck did this musical based on his plotless book of twee cat poems become one of the bestselling shows of all time?
