A simple device answers the question: "How deep do I have to dig to get to the real world from here?" The answer turns out to be "Not very deep."
This rudimentary Reality Well is about thirty centimetres wide and one metre deep, marked by a raised pipe so you won't fall in.
The extension of the steel casing up ninety centimetres from grade prevents accidents, but gives no view of the bottom.
The Well works better if it sits in a hole in the hypersphere. In future, this hole will be provided by the insulator shown in the isometric drawing -- a cylinder two metres high and four metres in diameter, with small doorways cut into it.
(The hypersphere is a layer of psychotic nonsense, covering the planet at eye-level.)
