ScanScan has taken to wearing a poncho, a military cap and a fake beard.

We have visited seven different cults based on the leads we received at the wormhole exit point. We know McEdifice was adopted by a group of youths who assumed he was a visitor from another planet. This was perceptive of them, although genetic testing of the inhabitants suggests that they are human-basic within normal variation.

Our last visit (see entry 32) was to an obvious fraud named "Smith" who claimed to be a "Martian" (a nearby planet). Even using the limited telemetry I have available it was easy to verify that the neighbouring planet is a lifeless icy desert with barely any atmosphere. In addition this "Smith" seemed to be under the influence of a very creepy lawyer who liked to show off how he could boss his three (female) personal assistants around. Not as weird as that other guru who turned out to be a science fiction author with a boat obsession, but in neither case the cult we were looking for.

Yet the visit was not a total waste. They had heard of a different "guru" also assumed to be an alien who was apparently heading to some sort of cultural gathering. ScanScan and I are making our way there in a transport device known as a "VW Kombi".

ScanScan has successfully assimilated the ansible projector and his dimensional abilities (developed from attempts to make images of the intersection of his legs and torso) are improving. However, he is concerned that there were temporal anomalies as well as spatial ones in our journey. For the moment we are using mundane transport.

The journey has largely been uneventful and so far I have only stunned and memory wiped eight members of lo

ScanScan began his trans dimensional preparations but as he did so McEdifice took notice of him for the first time. Grabbing ScanScan's fake beard, McEdifice shouted "Its Fidel Castro and he has come to steal my trousers!"

I collided with one of the acolytes, as McEdifice threw his arms around in attempt to wrestle ScanScan to the floor.

"Call the CIA!" shouted McEdifice to the horror of the people around us, "I've caught myself a commie!"

Luckily for us, that was sufficient to give me some breathing space to get a better grip on McEdifice, who was still clutching ScanScan's fake beard.

"Time to jump ScanScan, " I shouted and with that space began to fold. We nearly made it but just at the moment McEdifice threw a punch at ScanScan causing a progressive ripple through hyperbolic manifold.

As the three of us were pulled into the warped space-time, I shouted back to the surrounding crowd: "This didn't happen. It was all just some freaky drugs you took." Then we zipped out of existence…
