I had been swallowed… swallowed by an infinite, inky blackness. I was enveloped by this blackness. When I looked around me… it was nothingness. It was the abyss.

August 4th - 3:21 A.M. I’m keeping this record for posterity. It’s clear to me now that I’ve been swallowed by something I truly do not understand. The assumed qualities of human existence do not apply here, and their substitutes are unfamiliar to me. Everything I’ve come to know… all the knowledge I’ve amassed in my life… is now useless.

With the introduction of this foreign environment, came recurring instances of moral temptation. This recurring choice between firmly established ambitions and short-term desires. I’ve put forth immeasurable effort to keep this from altering my manner, but it’s proving inadequate in the face of uncompromising inevitability. My judgement is gradually drifting towards the irrational, as this environment wills.

I’ve fallen victim to this blackness. My resolve… diluted by the very nature of my own existence. I’m human. Mentally weak... emotionally unpredictable, and innately flawed.

My captor is far stronger... I’ve been swallowed by a force to be reckoned with… I’ve been swallowed by society.
