` I'm sorry, I really do mean to pack up shop and leave. This hideout isn't exactly a place I'd prefer to stay, though I have had to put up with worse.
` As it is, the water supply is so contaminated that even showering isn't a good idea. Not only that, but the scurrying noises coming from the crawlspace are really starting to worry me.
` It's also about 280 degrees Kelvin in here, which means that I constantly need to wear a jacket. I suppose I prefer that, though, as it helps to keep everything fresh.
` The important thing is that I have electricity, which is all I really need at the moment.
` Anyway, what have I been doing here besides scheming? Exploiting crazy homeless people for safety tests of my new antidenial drug. (Believe me, some of them could really use it!) If all goes well, I shall be able to more easily break down any barriers that have formed in my mind.
` It will probably hurt a great deal - if the tortured screams and heightened stress responses are any gauge - though I don't see any reason why I should not continue with this project.
` You see, I need to strip away any mental blockages I have in order to literally pull myself together in order to get through the times ahead.
` Really, I recommend this to anyone and everyone who has any type of difficulty accepting things. Which, I admit, I've had in the past. I don't want that anymore, though I am, unfortunately, still suffering some of the effects.
` What I want is to keep all the parts of my mind out in the open, so as to be easily utilized, rather than blindly root through my psyche as if it were a cabinet full of unlabeled files.
` I mean, you just can't live that way, not able to see your own thoughts.
` Personally, I think that this is everyone's dream, at least at some time in their lives. It is a common human flaw, to deny reality. Any effects from this denial, if any, are expected to be problematic.
` So, if I ever perfect this serum without killing myself, I shall have to offer it up for sale.
` Hey, I need the money!
` Well, I'd better go. Whatever is lurking in the crawlspace may turn out to be useful to me....
