ハンク・ジョンソンはインドを発ち、新たな旅を開始した。コミックコン2012の折に明らかとなったタイコの五つの「ビジョン」に描かれた地を巡るようだね。

ハンク・ジョンソン:
ヤーハンと私は収蔵品の有無を確認していったが、彼女は既に私が存在に気づいているであろう品のみを見せただろうと考えているよ。実に賢しい女性だからね。

様々な品を目にしたが、それがどういうものかヤーハンから説明はほとんどなかった。プライムアーティファクトや太古の原書だったよ。言葉は伝達の手段を超えた力を備えているものだが、既にわかりきったことだね。

結局のところ、リモート・イントルーシブ・パーティシペーション(RIP)チームの企ては功を奏さなかったようだが、今後必ずしも失敗に終わるというわけではない。我々はプライムアーティファクトを秘匿し盗難を防ぐ新たな手段を語り合ったよ。新たな、そしてとりわけ危険な時代に突入したのだと認識したが故のことだ。ある意味で古から続く両家の果たしてきた役割はこれまで以上に重要となったわけだ。

途中、我々は食事をとったよ。インド亜大陸で名高い手間暇を掛けたカレーをね。それもほんのひとときのことだったかもしれない。おそらくは彼女かその屋敷のカレーだったのだろうが、実に魅力的なレシピだと知れたよ。その辛さと香りに眠っていた感覚が目覚めさせられるものだった。

ヤーハンと過ごした最近の記憶はぼんやりとした合成映像のようにしか覚えていないし、事件の細部や場所を正常な年表にすることは難しい。我々は太古の黄道十二宮を思わせる13か月から成るカレンダーを眺めた。私はそこにアーキタイプをみたよ。

そのカレンダーによれば、我々はトリックスターのシーズンにある。ロキやらコヨーテ、パックといったトリックスターを連想させた。そして巡らせた思いはナイアンティック時代へと遡っていった。ティキ・バーだ、おぞましい仮面、そしてミスティの姿があった。

ヤーハンは予言したよ、ミスティはトリックスターの時代へ戻るとね。だが、どのミスティなのだろうか今度は彼女にどのような悪魔が宿るというのだろうか。

それとは別に奇妙なこともあったよ。ヤーハンが言うには、ジャービスは今も存在しているというのだ、新たな姿でね。彼女にもそれがどういった姿なのかはっきりとはしないようで、我々は二人して同様の疑念を口にしたものだが、ここでは記載しないでおこう。

また時は巡っている。5年か、5年だぞ。コミックコン2012で起きたサンディエゴ・アノマリーでわかったタイコのポスターに描かれてある五つの地へ立ち戻る旅路に今、私はある。時を隔てたそのビジョンは、ビジョンに留まるものではなかった。実在していたのだ。

ひとつの周期が終えようとしている。引き続きお伝えしよう。可能な限りのことを記録に残していこう。これが安穏たる旅路になるといった幻想を抱いてはいないさ。私の知っていることは悪意ある者たちにも当然知られているに違いないからね。

Jahan and I took inventory. I suspect she was only showing me the parts of her collection that she knew I was already aware of. She's far too clever...

I saw many things, she explained few of them. Prime Objects, ancient texts (words have powers far beyond language, but we always knew that, too).

In the end, it seems that the Remote Intrusive Penetration (RIP) Team was not successful, but that does not mean that they will always fail. We discussed new ways of hiding prime objects and deterring their theft. We realize that we are entering into a new and particularly dangerous era. In some ways, the two role these two ancient families have played is more important than ever before.

In between, we ate -- those complex curries the subcontinent is so famous for. Maybe it was just the moment. Maybe it was her or the place. But I realized that recipes are really potions. The heat and fragrances awaken dormant sensory possibilities.

I remember my recent time with her in a blurry montage and it is hard to separate it into discrete events or place a normal chronology to it. As we stood looking at an ancient zodiac-like calendar (which had 13 months), I saw in it the Archetypes.

According to that calendar, we are in the Season of the Trickster -- evoking all of the Trickster's manifestations from Loki to the Coyote to Puck. My mind travelled back to Niantic, the Tiki Bar, with it's horrific masks, and Misty.

Jahan prophesied that Misty would return in the time of the Trickster. But which Misty? And what demons will follow her this time?

And there was another strange thing. Jahan suggested to me that Jarvis is still very much with us, but in a new form. It was not clear to her what form, but we both share a similar suspicion, which I will not record here.

Time is cycling around again. Five Years. Half a decade. My journey now is to return to the five places shown in Tycho's original posters presented at what I now know to be the San Diego Anomaly at Comic-Con 2012. His visions of distant times were something more than just visions. They were presences.

A cycle is completing. I will report more. I will record what I can. I have no illusions that this will be a safe journey. I am quite sure that what is known to me is known to others with darker intentions.
