Okay, so I think we're on to something with the dates. It appears as if we have to pin down the last number of the above years and then describe what happened.

Not sure exactly how to track/twist/trap/test, though.

Also, we appear to have to write our own future. Maybe we should scour the THEY forum for that...

Okay, it's definitely working. Everybody should join if they have a Facebook! Tell your friends! And if you know anyone who's going to the event in the real world, have them invite you so it'll come up on your events page. That or friend NEX. I'm still waiting for a response, though...

There are seven people attending Commune on Facebook besides NEX. I think we need to get 88 people total to attend before the image becomes clear. The counter will go up as more people are added and more of the picture will be revealed.

It looks like this part wants us to go through the puzzles we've already solved in order to find the answers. These seem to be direct references to material that we've already seen before. I feel like 3 and 6 might be in reference to text adventures. I'll work on it for a bit.

Thoughts?

Yes. I haven't read enough by Descartes to make any actual decisions about whether his concept has any relevance to the game at all. It was just the first thing that popped into my head when I heard the voices. There does, though, seem to be a lot of disconnect between the physical bodies (if they even have them) and the thoughts and minds of the characters within the greater narrative. Just a little musing on my part, I guess.

I agree that the fact that the swan is missing his face is significant. Maybe more of these same ideas of disjointedness? Related to the sociopathic job interview answers we have to give where we dissociate from our humanity in order to answer correctly? Or maybe going back to the idea presented in the very first hub where the poem ends with "Call me JP" as if that isn't his real name? Also the insertion of the story goes along with the theme of quotations and texts derived from other people's works.
