I guess Eliot wasn't totally uninterested in that book.
I did that thing where I tuck the background behind the previous page. I'll update the previous page to reflect it. Here's the spread:
Also, so that no one has to strain their eyes looking at low-resolution imagery on (potentially) tiny screens, here's what the book says:
May 4th 1986
I have decided to conduct my own experiments. Despite the depths of my research, I am no closer to understanding how one might move beyond the bonds of causality (as we currently understand it) at a macro level, and yet, I have seen it with my own eyes. It was not illusion, no trick of the light. And if my own memory would lie, the camera cannot.
It has been over two decades since I captured my "invisible bird," and while I no longer believe it to have been invisible, I know there is some yet unexplored wonder at work. Sadly I have been unable to generate enthusiasm within the scientific community, and so like Newton, I must work alone.
And that's it for Chapter 3! Wooooo. I hope you all have a super lovely break if you get one, and even if you don't, I hope you still have a good time. I am going to see family on the east coast, which means I will definitely have to deal with cold temperatures and possibly snow. I will also get to hang out with pets, including two aloof cats (one that might let me pet it for a bit) and a playful jack russell terrier named Penny whom I affectionately refer to as my step-sister.
I hope you have the happiest of holidays, and I'll see you in two weeks!!
