Amaziah Lachish: Further Thoughts
After my initial thoughts on who exactly this enigmatic is, I began to ponder over what +Hank Johnson
had been theorizing about: Prime Trandimentional Objects, or PTOs for short.
"I suspect much of this has to do with a struggle for the control of what have been called 'Prime Transdimensional Objects'... original Artifacts capable of true interaction with Exotic Matter... Like the Shōnin Stone. The incomprehensible sophistication of the technology can't be replicated, but the form can.
They become purely ornamental as the original is lost, forgotten or destroyed: Future generations recreate objects in their likeness, and over time they forget the true power of the original artifact, but they remember that the form is somehow meaningful." -Hank Johnson
Is Lachish a MAGNUS? Could there have been a PTO in the Triangle, one he wanted to either activate or protect?
Could it be possible that the Shapers manipulated me and +Daniel Clague
secretly, unwittingly into forming the Prometheans with the idea of protecting whatever lies inside the Triangle?
If so, what the hell is in there? Why is it so important? Worst of all, if the anti MAGNUS decides to go after whatever could reside there, who will be tasked to confront them in order to protect it?
A couple of days later, I consulted Clague on his thoughts. He had this to say:
"Possible artifacts of interest which may have come to reside in the Bridgewater triangle: any artifact used in the pre revolutionary war Era, unknown relics brought in by cultists and any number of objects heretofore unassociated with the region. However a few which have direct connections can be mentioned. t. The thing that sticks out the most for me here Mustafa is the shining trapezohedron. This thing was supposed to be a window on all space and time, a transdimensional object. It could summon the harbinger of the N'Zeer, whom some have called Nyarlathotep. It's this crazy angled stone from another planet, and was associated with Atlantis and Egypt.
Archaeologists brought it to providence RI in 1843 and founded a cult that worshipped the N'zeer. It was eventually thrown into Narragansett bay but the darkness down there unleashed it's host, who possessed a Dr. Ambrose Dexter."
Further research led me to the story "The Haunter in the Dark," by H.P Lovecraft. The story speaks of the shining trapezohedron and a cult attempting to utilize its power, known as the Church of Starry Wisdom. The Shining Trapezohedron was discovered in Egyptian ruins, in a box of alien construction, by Professor Enoch Bowen before he returned to Providence in 1844. Members of the Church of Starry Wisdom in Providence would awaken the Haunter of the Dark, an avatar of Nyarlathotep, by gazing into the glowing crystal. Summoned from the black gulfs of chaos, this being could show other worlds, other galaxies, and the secrets of arcane and paradoxical knowledge; but he demanded monstrous sacrifices, hinted at by disfigured skeletons that were later found in the church."
"But don't you see? This isn't a myth. It's a mythic retelling of an actual event. It's just been coded so only the initiated could understand."
-Hank Johnson, the Library surveillance recording.
Was Lovecraft channeling into something larger than himself through his works, this one in particular? Was the Haunter in the Dark a secret parable talking of the N'zeer and a PTO that could summon them?
In the name of the investigation, I release this information. I can only hope it serves our journey well.
