The Report

Social Experiment No. 65: the last attempt by scientists to unravel the limits of the human mind in the age of freedom and the ever expanding universe. Since birth, Eliza Stuart was locked into the four walls of her own fabricated home with only her mother for company. As far as Eliza knows, that is the universe.
'The Report' is small selection of daily reports which have been gathered and collated as the last surviving documents in the experiment, and these slowly reveal Eliza's life, the lies she is fed, and how ultimately, you can never shut off one human mind from the universe. For the Might there be more than this? competition. 3892 words. Cover VERY kindly made for me by Luke J.R :)

E: Mum, stop pretending you know what I’m talking about.

H: OK, I admit, I haven’t a clue.

E: So you didn’t write this dissertation?

H: No, I wouldn’t know where to start.

E: Henry! You didn’t tell me you wrote this!

HK: That’s because I didn’t.

E: What? Well one of you two did.

HK: What makes you think that? You think your mum wrote all of those books up there.

E: Where else did they come from?

HK: Other people.

E: But there aren’t any other people.

HK: There were. Or will be. Just like I wasn’t here a while ago. I’m another person, so there were more other people.

E: Like my dad?

HK: Yes.

E: So he wrote this?

HK: Not that I know of. Your dad loved science.

E: You knew him?

HK: No, not in person.

E: What is that supposed to mean? You know, you make no sense most of the time!
