EXPERIMENT NUMBER: 42-01A SUBJECT: Anomatic ability in humans (2) TECHNICIAN: A. Thyone


HYPOTHESIS: Repeated exposure to anomatter has given the subject (Aster Praxidike) the innate ability to travel through time

CONTROL VARIABLES: One sealed envelope. The participation of an unbiased third party (Madison Sayers).

PROCEDURE: Under my supervision, the subject will be prompted to travel to the future to learn the outcome of the test. He will ask M. Sayers to name the three objects she chose during the test, then return to the present. At this point, the subject will write the list of objects on a slip of paper, seal it in an envelope, and surrender the envelope to me. M. Sayers will then be brought in and asked to choose three objects at random. When the selections are made, I will unseal the envelope and read the subject’s prediction.

CONCLUSION: Failure. The subject did not accurately predict the outcome of the test. Success.

NOTES: After drawing my initial conclusion, the subject prompted me to flip his prediction over, revealing he’d written my response to the perceived failure verbatim. “Are you sure you traveled to the right day?”

I shouldn’t be surprised. I know the man well. After all, we spend countless hours working side-by-side. Though something seems to have shifted in Praxidike after this test.

Where I was thrilled to observe we could now fully explore alternity, as Aricus described it, he expressed fear. The fear of irreparably damaging the time stream. The “butterfly effect.” But I’m not concerned with the past: Our path forward lies in the future. There is nothing left for us to learn from the past.

After some discussion, Praxidike agreed to continue experimenting insofar as he is able to better understand the anomatic nature of his abilities.

And that’s all I need from him for now.
