Diary of George Howard, 52 days after landing

Discovered an animal today. While we were preparing camp a lemur-like creature casually strolled up to us and tried to take a nut bar that Julia had put down for a moment. It was about half a metre long (not including tale), covered in grey fur with an oddly large head. The strange thing about it was that when we picked it up and took away the bar it didn’t resist. It just calmly accepted that we wanted it to stop and be examined.

Diary of George Howard, 53 days after landing

I woke up from a dream unlike any other. There were no images or sounds but instead a sense of vastness. My mind was expanded to fill the universe and there was unlimited wisdom and unlimited peace. As I watched the dawn I took off my oxygen mask and breathed in the air trying to hold onto the feeling. With the thick perfume of jungle flowers the staleness didn’t seem to matter

    I looked up some statistics about the safety of being in environments with various Carbon dioxide levels. George Howard is running a very high chance of serious permanent brain damage, coma and death… Could lead to an interesting next chapter 😀 🙂 😛

    • I looked up the advice divers go by and choose an amount that would take about 25-30 minutes to kill someone. I should have thought of passing out though. Hopefully I’ll hit the right mix of interesting ideas and stupidity hiding vagueness in tomorrows chapter.
