    CONFIDANT. At this level, you’ll get all the perks mentioned, plus a personal note sent to you by the great architect himself: signed, sealed, and delivered. Display it in a glass case if you want, or keep it locked in a safe, away from prying eyes. Regardless, don’t lose it! It could be worth a lot of money in the future. You'll also get to ask any question about the Stairwell to actual world-renown academics for the documentary interviews. How does it work? Does the Stairwell disprove all our laws of logic? Ask away, and they'll give you a personalized response.

    ADVISOR. What would you do in the Escherian Stairwell? Throw a bucket of ping-pong balls down the steps and watch them rain down from above? Tie a rope to your waist, loop it around the Stairwell, and pull yourself from behind? Tell us what you’d like to see happen in this architectural marvel and we’ll film it (keep it kid-friendly, people). And you also get the above-mentioned rewards.

    LEGEND. The authentic t-shirt didn't convince your friends that you were there? You're clearly hanging with a very pompous crowd. Well, maybe video evidence will. That's right. Come to the actual Stairwell in Rochester and we'll film you doing something creative in it. And you'll get to meet the team! And give us hugs and hang out with us. (Plus the above perks).

    IMMORTAL. Become a part of the myth forever. Decide which you want: Your name in the credits as Associate Producer of the "Can You Imagine?" webisode. Or the name of a loved one you'd like to honor. Or any name you make up (within the bounds of good taste). Or have your business introduced at the very beginning of the show as an underwriter. The potential for visibility is limitless, and you will be linked to the Stairwell until the end of time.
