♥s are a powerful and fundamental force of the Big•Big•Picture. They are somehow involved in the transformation of sprout-butts into chow by the Hoi-Polloi: when the Hoi Polloi croon to a sprout-butt, they appear, and Beanish has observed them entering the sprout-butt directly as it dissolves. They are also used by Beanish to delay Dreamishness's passage through her private skypath, a process Dreamishness describes as being "bathed in bliss." In each case, they are an expression of devotion as well as an agent of change.
