September 1, 1996 (CE) Oakland Science News- Marine Biologists Discover Giant Squid Population Beneath Alcatraz Island.

San Francisco Bay- Marine Biologists performing a routine biodiversity assessment in the bay found a large population of squids thriving beneath the erstwhile prison. They reported their findings in a joint announcement with the EPA, Scripts Institute, and CFFLISTO (Committee For Finding Lost Shit In The Ocean) on Tuesday. The team of three scientists and two divers were aboard the Hella Fish, a boat owned and operated by Jacques Alouette. The group had been listening for whales before entering the water when they heard an unidentified transmission. The source of the transmission was coming from the island of Alcatraz or more precisely, beneath the island. Team leader, P. Blossom of Elegast Labs, requested Alcatraz Island shut down all power and electronic communications. In a surprise move, the Parks Association complied. The island went dark for several hours, the transmission continued. “It had to be biologic in source. So we sent the divers down.” The divers returned with several photos showing thousands of squids living beneath the island.

Center and Circumference

You are the center and the circumference. The center of you would presumably be some atom behind your navel. Somewhere in the center of that atom is a whole mess of subatomic particles and so on and so forth. It works the other way as well because you are also the circumference. You don’t end at your skin, you extend infinitely outward with your sphere of influence. Across great distances and between the smallest of spaces, you exist. You are both of the earth and on it. Same subatomic particles at the center of you are also at the center of the earth. Just as you extend beyond your skin, the earth extends beyond the crust. It includes the wind and the sky. Beyond the edge of the sky, earth’s gravity influences spheres across the universe. You are both the center of the universe and the reason the universe exists. This is a heavy burden.
