She had been one of the four staff team members that had been tasked with having to examine every little shred of biological matter that each of the expedition groups brought back from the frozen land mass.

Spreading Joy To Others
Take a look at the picture and what do you see? Children sat together, sharing... It is the innocence of childhood that we all sadly lose touch with as we all develop and grow. Of course, we all know why this inevitably occurs, don't we? Several reasons come to mind straight away.
Epitome Of The Algorithm
Has the hour of 'Algor' indeed finally been reached? Is humanity beginning to see that our decisions, whether it involves writing or when it comes down to our very own choices, are now being, once-and-for-all, monitored and presided over by 'Deep Though' himself?
