    Why did [[:jackson-elias | Jackson Elias]] even start to write this book? Or more to the point, who or what persuaded him to investigate the failed expedition. Pnecotic Manuscripts detail a civilization on earth long before recorded history.

    So much sand! Must not be buried alive! Looking for a handle. A handle to stop up the sink. There is not, however, a handle. Inevitably, we have to just push the stopper in with brute force. Having sealed "The Jar," we cave in the passage to the …
