Iris has spent her life exploring things like what it is that makes people happy and what makes them realize that they are happy once they are, and then shows as she loses touch with those things without even realizing it.

 The Iris
The iris, visible through the clear cornea as the colored disc inside the eye, is a thin diaphragm composed mostly of connective tissue and smooth muscle fibers.
The iris divides the anterior compartment, the space separating the cornea and the lens, into the anterior chamber (between the cornea and the iris) and the posterior chamber (between the iris and the lens).
Anatomical structures posterior to the iris, which also are part of the uvea, are the ciliary body (within which is the ciliary muscle which controls the shape of the crystalline lens) and the choroid (located underneath the retina and which contains the retina’s blood supply).

 [No title]
As with URIs, an IRI is defined as a sequence of characters, not as a sequence of octets.
An IRI with a scheme that is known to use domain names in ireg-name, but where the scheme definition does not allow percent-encoding for ireg-name, meets scheme-specific restrictions if either the straightforward conversion or the conversion using the ToASCII operation on ireg-name result in an URI that meets the scheme- specific restrictions.
Protocols and data formats often limit some IRI comparisons to simple string comparison, based on the theory that people and implementations will, in their own best interest, be consistent in providing IRI references, or at least be consistent enough to negate any efficiency that might be obtained from further normalization.
