Transcript:
MrMusicMan789 is playing a solo mission. Video starts in #1005 Hoadly Ave. The objective changes to “Everything is Fine”.

MMM789: (gasps) “Everything is fine…” Oh, it’s been a while since I’ve seen that pop up. (chuckles)

MMM789 walks from Lower West Hoadly to Old Growth, hops onto a bush in the median, and looks up to the sky.

TMC: LONG YOU HAVE WAITED, I DO KNOW.

MMM789: That I have, others know as well, though.

TMC: YOUR PATIENCE, AS YOU CREDIT.

MMM789: Well, thank you, no point in-

TMC: NO, THAT AS PATIENT AS YOU HAVE BEEN, I TOO HAVE HAD TO PRACTICE, PATIENCE.

MMM789: Ooooh, in what regard, specifically?

MMM789 begins climbing to the roof of Old Growth.

TMC: SUBJECT MAN, YOU WERE MARKED AGES AGO.

MMM789: True, I was told that someone – specifically you – had laid “claim”

TMC: IT IS TRUE, I TOOK NOTE OF YOU AT THE MOMENT OF CONCEPTION. THE PATTERN WAS CLEAR.

MMM789: Oooh, well, thank you. (chuckles)

TMC: AND WITH EVERY PASSING YEAR, MY SUSPICIONS WERE ONLY PROVEN CORRECT.

MMM789: Well I’m glad to hear that. (chuckles as he climbs to the top of the playground). This is exciting. Trying to contain the emotions, can’t let that get in the way of judgement.

TMC: I WISH TO DISCUSS MORE WITH YOU, BUT, THE SETTING IS… A DISTRACTION.

MMM789: I quite agree. And I have some questions for you, especially for where I think we’ll be going.

TMC: VERY GOOD.

MMM789: Let’s begin.

TMC: COME AWAY.

MMM789 is transported to the surface of the “Moon”.

MMM789: Ahhh… (chuckles) I like what you’ve done with the place. (chuckles, then begins inspecting the pillars. When MrMusicMan789 was last on the moon in October 2018, the pillars did not exist…)

TMC: IF IT EVEN IS, A PLACE…

MMM789: Indeed, indeed. Heard a lot of things about this place… What it is… what is isn’t… yeah-

TMC: IT IS INTERESTING, THERE ARE MANY THEORIES.

MMM789: Mhmm.

TMC: SOME OF THEM SEEM CREDIBLE TO ME, OTHERS, I’M NOT SURE.

MMM789: Well I think we can both agree the moon here is definitely not real.

TMC: I WOULD SUSPECT.

MMM789: Otherwise it makes no sense. It’s not plausible.

TMC: THANK YOU, SUBJECT MAN FOR YOUR DATA.

MMM789: (chuckles) I try my best.

TMC: IT HAS PROVED USEFUL IN MY OWN EXPLORATIONS OVER THE YEARS. PARTICULARLY IN THESE RECENT WEEKS AND MONTHS. AND…

MMM789: Mhmm

TMC: …YOUR QUESTIONS WERE HEARD.

MMM789: Well, thank you. (chuckles)

TMC: I DO HAVE THEORIES. THEY HAVE YET TO BE PROVEN TRUE. THEY HAVE BEEN TESTED, BUT PERHAPS NOT THOROUGHLY ENOUGH. HOWEVER, I AM WILLING TO SHARE THEM WITH YOU, AS YOU HAVE PROVEN YOURSELF SO VERY WORTHY.

MMM789: Of course, share away. Theories, after all, can’t always be proven, but we can try.

TMC: IN ANSWER TO YOUR QUESTION, BEFORE EVEN THE PROGENITOR, BEFORE THE FIRST VOICES, THERE WAS YET A LANGUAGE, A CODE, NO… A PATTERN OF INTELLIGENCE THAT EXISTED. MADE OF MOVEMENT AND MUSIC. THE BUSINESS OF EARLY HUMAN TRIBES, PERHAPS, BUT STRETCHING BACK EVEN FURTHER. THOSE WERE THE OLDEST ENTITIES. OLDER EVEN THAN MY PROGENITORS. CERTAINLY, OLDER THAN ME.

MMM789 throws his grappling hook onto the ceiling of the “Moon”, then takes it off.

MMM789: Okay… now–

TMC: I DO NOT CLAIM TO KNOW ALL THEIR MOTIVES, BUT ONE THING IS CLEAR, SUBJECT MAN.

MMM789: Mhmm (light chuckling)

TMC: THE PROGENITORS WANT TO KNOW WHAT CAME BEFORE.

MMM789: Ah. And they can accomplish that–

TMC: THEY WISH TO KNOW WHAT BECAME OF THE OLD TONGUE. BEFORE THE SPOKEN WORD CORRUPTED IT.

MMM789: And they think they can accomplish that with what they’re doing in the Maze? Or, what’s under Redacre?

TMC: I ASSUME SO, BUT YOU AND I BOTH KNOW, ASSUMPTIONS CAN BE DANGEROUS.

MMM789: True. Hopefully their efforts are, uh, futile, to say the least. Especially if they have negative consequences.

TMC: WHAT IS YOUR THEORY?

MMM789: Hm, I don’t quite know. Every time I sorta start to develop one, uh, things get complicated. Additional variables get thrown in. For example, the Unknown Caller, so many – myself included – have been hearing from, complicating the matter, how everything ties together, if it even does…

TMC: THE FIELD IS MESSY, IS IT NOT?

MMM789: (chuckles) Couldn’t be messier probabl– That’s yet to be seen, but it is quite messy.

TMC: YOU AND I ARE FANS OF CLARITY AND PRECISION. MY SIBLINGS… NOT SO MUCH.

MMM789: Yeah, I’ve-

TMC: THEY HAVE THEIR CHARMS, BUT…

MMM789: (chuckles)

TMC: I RECOMMEND KEEPING YOUR DISTANCE.

MMM789: I have tried, (chuckles) I know some of them are not so friendly towards me, for that.

MMM789 reinspects the pillars again.

TMC: AND SOME OVERLY-FRIENDLY…

MMM789: Yeah…

TMC: BUT THAT IS A DANGER IN AND OF ITSELF.

MMM789: It is, yeah. Possibly just as dangerous as the other type.

TMC: MY TIME HERE IS SCARCE…

MMM789: I know, I know, though I do have to ask–

TMC: I’M AFRAID TO SAY I MUST DEPART SHORTLY.

MMM789: I know.

TMC: BUT I DID WANT TO EXPRESS MY GRATITUDE FOR YOUR FRANK DISCUSSION AND OPEN EYE, YOUR HUMILITY IN THE FACE OF THE UNKNOWN, SUBJECT MAN.

MMM789: (chuckles) Well, thank you. Though I do have one quick question for you if you have the time to answer while we’re here. There’s what – five pillars? What exactly are they, the symbols? We have no understanding of that. ‘Cause while we’re on the moon, what better time to ask?

TMC: SYMBOLS… HUMANS ALWAYS RIDDLE OVER SYMBOLS…

MMM789: …we do (chuckles), unfortunately.

TMC: IF WE ONLY… WOULD APPLY MEANING… TO WHAT WE DO NOT KNOW.

MMM789: Hmm.

TMC: I WOULD SUGGEST, YOU BE WEARY OF MISDIRECTION.

MMM789: True.

TMC: THERE IS MEANING TO BE FOUND, BUT OCCASIONALLY… WE CAN BE LED ON A, “GOOSE CHASE”, AS IT WERE.

MMM789: Yeah, as we’ve often seen so far, in trying to figure out what’s going on. Lots of uh… directions, and splintered paths.

TMC: HMM. DON’T BE FOOLED BY THE CIRCUS. AFTER ALL, YOU AND I ARE STANDING ON THE… “MOON”.

MMM789: Indeed, indeed.

TMC: OR ARE WE?

MMM789: That is the question.

TMC: SUBJECT MAN.

MMM789: Yes?

TMC: I MUST GO. AND YOU MUST AWAKE.

MMM789: Indeed.

TMC: YOU KNOW WHERE TO FIND ME. AND WE WILL… TALK AGAIN.

MMM789: Sounds good!

TMC: THIS WAS A LONG TIME IN THE MAKING.

MMM789: (giggles) 8 months apparently (chuckles)

TMC: IT IS VERY MUCH APPRECIATED.

MMM789: Likewise. Thank you. (chuckles)

TMC: I WILL JUST SAY.

MMM789: Mhmm?

TMC: TO BE CONTINUED.

MMM789: I look forward to it.

The mission ends.

MMM789 returns to the Hideout and finds he has another Halo waiting for him.
