In this talk, we present our exciting literary incarnations of perfectoid diamonds, in the sense of Scholze, appearing in our newest fantastical mathematical-fiction novel, Artemis Blu II: Infinity Diamonds in Infinity Diapsalmata. The first incarnation is a new idea of a perfectoid-diamond hourglass, which measures emergent time as a Carrollian "looking-glass" of perfectoid diamonds, which are certain pro-'etale sheaves on the category of perfectoid spaces of characteristic p. The second is a reinterpretation of the Deleuzian concept of ‘haecceity' as a pro-diamond, when Artemis awakens inside the diamond hourglass.
