Sorry for the delay. I've had a harder time getting on the computer since my wife had surgery and I've been taking care of both her and the kids. Recovery's going well, though, so things should be back to normal soon.
>LOOK INSIDE SPACE ABOVE CEILING PANEL
I only understood you as far as wanting to look inside the hole.
Yes, that's exactly what we meant, but apparently it thought we were trying to say something more. Simplifying...
You strain, pulling yourself up with your arms, until you can see over the lip of the hole. The space over the acoustical panelling is only a few inches high; but it spreads out around you into darkness.
A small package, wrapped in cloth, is sitting on the panelling, just a few inches from your face.
You move your hands a bit, one at a time, to ease the strain.
