Its curious, isn't it...

Olive makes a motion as if to stack the pineapples from the garden atop the cactus. Although there is no sensation of touch here, she assumes that Heera can understand physical movements and how they will represent a desire to relocate the scenery (similar to how a virtual chair was lifted and levied against her)

She imagines this will be somewhat clumsy since she doesn't have tactile sensations, but that the computer can still vaguely understand what she is trying to grip/move and vaguely relocate them.

Stacking the 'apples atop the cactus she tries to build an approximation (like a snowman) of the umbrella-leaf-stalked plants in her dream.
Olive is able to figure out how to modify the plants via "touch". Heera makes a few useful prompts on how to use the controls, and Olive starts sculpting. Its not too hard to make something vaguely like the plants, but when she tries to go beyond the general shape, she finds herself stuck.

Still here she has a pretty good approximation of what she wants.
