I KNOW WHAT YOU’RE DOING. I KNOW WHAT YOU DID. I SAW HIM. HE HAD A METAL BALL. IT OPENED. THEY WENT CRAZY. SHOOTING. STABBING. TORE EACH OTHER TO PIECES. I KNOW IT WAS YOU PEOPLE. SAW THE LOGO. HEARD THE NAME. I’M GOING TO TELL. ANYONE WHO WILL LISTEN. YOU’LL BE EXPOSED. THEY’LL KNOW THE TRUTH. AND THEN YOU WILL PAY. YOU CRAZY BASTARDS YOU’LL PAY.
I’ve finished my report on Subject Sixteen. You should take a look when you have some time as I believe it validates my belief that we nee to be treating them with greater care. Failure to o so will only result in further breakdowns.
I’ll summarize things for now since I realize you’re probably pretty busy. Prolonged exposure to the Animus caused a “Bleeding Effect” within Subject Sixteen’s genetic structure. The result was a blending of genetic and real-time memory. He became unable to distinguish his own life from those of his ancestors, as witnessed with the incident in his room.
I believe this effect is very similar to certain forms of multiple personality and delusional disorders. People who claim to be experiencing past lives or the presence of other minds within their own are quite possibly experiencing a naturally occurring version of this Bleeding Effect. Though the specific symptoms may very from subject to subject, the end result is the same: they may lose their minds.
This is what I believe happened to Subject Sixteen. One of his ancestors seems to have been involved in an important event in the ancient Far East. The wall writings he left us defy any conventional explanation, though I’m not ready to dismiss them just yet. Per your request, I’ve asked for a linguist and historian to research them further in case there is some significance. I’ll let you know if they come back to us with anything.
I’ll get you a full copy of the report so that you can review my findings when you have the time. I know this is not that important to you Warren, but it would mean a lot to me if you’d just take a look and think about it. We don’t need to push them so hard. We don’t need to kill them. From a purely practical perspective, there’s no point in destroying the subjects anyway. Once they’re dead their knowledge is lost to us forever. And we both know how dangerous that can be.
