Hi. Thanks for your interest. I’m recording this for posterity.
Warlock thanatonauts die and come back with insight. I’m going to attempt the same process to get at buried memories. Specifically, I’m going to fire a charged particle beam into my head and see what comes out. We Exos have been around a very long time. I want to know what’s in there.
My Ghost is standing by to repair me.
Okay. Three two one

We are falling into the world. Everyone is on fire. There’s a ship above us but it’s coming apart just like a flower, alloy and fusion flash, pierced through and through -
The voice says Atmospheric interface. Trajectory nominal. Rabid two three you are outside the window. (I think I am the voice)
I can see the whole earth below me and the sky we are falling out of is black without stars.
Ghost, shoot me again.

We are on the ice. This is elsewhere and elsewhen. There is a mighty aurora and it is reflected in the ice so I walk between two fires although the one below is cracked and full of corpses. I have and am a weapon.
Up in the sky there is a hole in Jupiter and it tears at me when I look at it. It tears at me. It is hungry. Maybe the hole is not in Jupiter but in me.
