Shion speaking to Joachim on the beach.

Shion, I like it here... I'm the only living thing that exists in this place. There's nothing else... no anger, no sadness, no happiness... not even a future. The only thing that's here... is me. And that'll eventually fade away. It feels good... this is exactly what I've been searching for all this time. Shion, you'll eventually find yourself here, too. I'm sure of it. It won't be much longer... I know... I can tell...
—Cherenkov, to Shion in the Beach of Nothingness.

The Beach of Nothingness is a mysterious and otherworldly all-white beach seen in both Episodes I and III. It is a limbo-like place visited by those who are either near death or have previously died, and may be compared to a purgatory.
