SUBJECT: RE: Level 7 Mission Directive – IMMEDIATE IMPLEMENTATION

//STARTS Programme irrelevant. Stars alive. Truth is a lie. Data follows. Flora and fauna observed so far: Rabbits, mushrooms, deer (LOOK ITS HOOF FACES THE WRONG WAY), squash, fish leap in river of golden amber (THIS FOAM IS DELICIOUS), conical beings with many limbs serve me fluids from dazzling antediluvian goblets (‘THIS IS A SMILE’), now we are one, the ice flows, smells of lychee & pomegranate //ENDS

//STARTS Special Agent is lost beyond all hope. Return to prime dimension. Cease investigation. File report //ENDS

FROM: Special Agent ‘Banjo Chutney’
TO: Chief Commander ‘The Mexican’
SUBJECT: RE: Level 7 Mission Directive – IMMEDIATE IMPLEMENTATION

//STARTS To be lost is to be found. Conical beings conducting thought-probe, beauty of endless possibility, human civilisation doomed for eternity. The Agency will be your downfall. Imminent arrival of Ancient Ones in cyclopean pyramid time-machine-spaceships. They are serving me the green ichor in human skulls now. YOUR MIND TASTES EXQUISITE //ENDS
