There's a museum in the far future, tethered between the dimensions and holding more artefacts than you can dream about. It doesn't have many windows, just a nearly endless set of levels, corridors and display rooms patroled by a lonely staff of curators who are based in stations so far apart they seldom see one another.
The multicoloured coruscation of 2nd Harmonic Space vibrates ecstatically round the mathematical bubble where the Museum intrudes. Its illegal wavefunction is held in collapsed co-reference to the wavefunction of the rest of 1st Harmonic Space by a spider web of photon chains which anchor it to a hundred black holes scattered throughout the human local galactic group. Each one pipes it with the ‘pseudo energy’ of the 1st Harmonic gradient of entropy which the Big Bang had set in motion. There are several docking bays and interwing transfer stations. Iris eyes open into the ultra high energy void to form transit virtual and real tubes between different wings. Occasionally Generative Starships will Restructure here, their superimplicit drives playing with the order of the holomovement to tease the right quantum potential out of the metaquantum field. From here, you can sometimes see them ghosting into existence, floating over bright waves of discontinuity and fading out again like seagulls riding a storm wind to hover over a cliff. Behind their grey lines rainbows of protest blossom from 2nd Harmonic Space. It is the most dangerous of games, which if they ever get it wrong, could not only destroy their craft utterly but seriously pollute the galactic dimensional environment. When that happens, the fabric of space writhes in agony, the photon chains stretch under the strain and proto intelligent systems throw out extra anchors at the command of the Lords of the Museum to catch the new curvature and renormalise the whole structure. To those inside the building, none of this is ever noticeable.
But still, a sky like this can hurt the eye and the mind when viewed for too long. It is safer to leave the window and journey into the oddly catologued exhibits that chronicle the discoveries of man across many long ages and distant places. Wouldn't you like to visit?
