If he discovers our presence, tell him that it was because we consider him a valuable resource and wanted to be able to rescue him if things went awry. It is imperative that researchers NOT go off grid. Ni "Dr. Ezekiel Calvin" <zeke.calvin@nia.ts.gec> wrote: Director Ni, I have informed Dr. B that Mr. Johnson is allowed to leave. Security has agreed to follow him, but they say that once he is far from cellular reach, he travels in v. hard terrain and following him will be difficult. We will deploy some high-alt drones, but it could be a bit like finding a needle in a haystack. I am leery about doing anything that would leave him under the impression that he is being shadowed. Calvin "Yuen Ni" <> wrote: Dr. Calvin, I have mixed feelings about this, but as we did agree earlier, and don't want to create any friction on the team, we should honor our agreement to let him leave. He should be monitored while he is absent from the facility. Ni "Dr. Ezekiel Calvin" <zeke.calvin@nia.ts.gec> wrote: Director Ni, I understand that you want to discourage Niantic investigators from leaving the facility during this period, but I was reminded by Dr. B that we made prior arrangements with Hank Johnson to let him leave for a short period to film a segment from his television series, "Nomad." I think we should let him go for two reasons: First, it would be awkward to deny his departure, and secondly, he has shown no symptoms whatsoever from the Shaper virus. My suspicion is that he is a 'neutral sensitive,' in that he has shown neither affinity nor aversion to them, unlike many of the others. Also, it might be informative to have the control case of an investigator who is absent during the expected XM spike when Dr. Lynton-Wolfe deploys his experimental exotic matter tech at the Niantic Portal. Please advise. Sooner is better. He plans to leave today. Calvin ---------- Forwarded message ---------- From: Dr. Ezekiel Calvin <> Subject: 'Re: Nomad' To: Dr. Devra Bogdanovich <> I agree. If he finds something, it would lend credence to the idea that humans are attracted to portals -- at great distances, and an urge leads them to mark them with art. Of course, we know that the correlation in urban areas is very strong, but if we were to prove that the portals actually draw people to them, that would really be something. Let me clear this with Yuen Ni, but I suspect she will be good with it, given that Mr. Johnson's absence was pre-planned. Zeke.

He will be exploring an area in the Congo Basin (where large XM spikes were observed) in order to see if there is any evidence that early man attempted to mark portals with statuary. He says that the overhead imagery we currently have is obscured by dense canopy. Frankly, I think it is a worthy line of inquiry. Devra
