I can never decide if these disappearances of yours are more likely explained by the travel time between here and the nearest alien planet, or if it's simply the period of time between someone leaving the door to the asylum open and when they catch you again. Welcome back grognads. 'moi'
JUST "had a dream"
last night in which an 'interplanetary excursion'
occurred, taking place perhaps within the NEXT 100 years, or around then from the appearances for the environs of such! No single person was readily recognizable to myself, although these ALL knew me, and some even were lifelong acquaintances, colleagues, or whatever. We were a "follow on"
group, as previously a 'Colony'
had been established to where we had headed, and arrived. The current inhabitants were too eager on departing immediately, for reasons they couldn't, or wouldn't discuss just then. They all seemed 'afflicted'
with dread as a result of being there longer than they'd anticipated, while 'moi'
resolved upon remaining in their stead, along with any others deciding for this as well. Perhaps, I'll 'dream-up'
the sequel for this sometime later, since I've never HAD that kind before, and it was quite remarkable for their details, while the journey seemed to take place in about a single Day from when we left until our arrival, as this then might indicate some futuristic means of "faster than light"
SPEED, although not nearly at 18-times THIS
for some current Shuttles, accordingly.
