What you are about to read is mind altering and may very well undermine the foundations of all previously acquired perceptions relative to man's subjective state of being and objective relationship with the material universe. Before you is the transcript of an informal, extemporaneous and non-structured debriefing of AN UNKNOWN FORM OF EXISTENCE. Approximately three hundred questions were answered by the sole survivor of a technologically advanced flying craft that collided with a Soviet Nuclear Icebreaker. Six sober-minded officers, a secretary and the captain of the icebreaker participated in the debriefing of a visitor from an uncharted planet in our own solar system. During this debriefing the crew of the disabled Soviet Icebreaker was ordered to salvage the wreckage of the alien craft in anticipation that the sole surviving pilot would assist in the understanding and reconstruction of this advanced piece of technology. Such an achievement, if realized to fruition, would project one segment of our civilization away and beyond the primitive perimeters of present day technology. The questions of sharing the details of such accelerated technology with political, military and economic friends, let alone enemies or adversaries, would be ludicrous, considering the selfish and violent state of man's present level of consciousness. So the entire incident, including the debriefing of this "Unknown Form of Existence," was classified as "Volatile Secrecy" or in the parlance of Soviet Intelligence as a "Non-Event". This unprecedented incident transcended the normal branches of the Soviet Government and was placed into the hands of an independent organization known as THE FORCES FOR EXTREME SITUATIONS or ESF. This autonomous structure, covertly funded and not responsible to any branch of government or known chain of command, seems to have superseded all social and moral imperatives, let alone democratic or socialistic obligations.
