"Dave, what do you see?"
The air in the cavern seemed to lose all moisture instantaneously, leaving him parched and without words. A sudden sensation overcoming him, of being infinitely small.
He was the first man to walk here, four and a half miles into the earth. The recently discovered cavern presenting a unique chance for research and exploration; a subsequent program getting him here to conduct it.
"Dave, are you there?"
The great chamber stretched out around him; the walls perfectly chiseled from the stone, partly comprised of some unknown metallic element. A radiating energy pulsed through the entirety of the chamber intermittently, like a beating heart. An overwhelming pressure was building inside of him, his legs feeling as if they would give way at the slightest notion of a breeze.
He didn't know what to tell them about this; the Sumerian glyphs, the mechanical and organic chimera that was the very chamber itself? He was beginning to sweat now; a cold feeling creeping up the back of his neck, so that the hairs stood on end.
How could he explain the button he had just accidentally pressed, labeled only "Reset"?
