《克兰西的日记》更新:022 03MOON 18

根据这支录影带里面的内容,双手握住 Ned 头上的这对角并跳一段舞,就可以附身在其他的躯体身上并控制他们的行为——无论是活人(《Jumpsuit》里面的 Clancy),动物(《Saturday》和这支影片开头的 Trash)还是死人(这支影片末尾的凯恩斯)。

3月18日,《The Outside》音乐录影带解禁,讲述了 Clancy 和火炬手到达小岛后,幸运地获得了 Ned 头上的角,以此来附身于德玛城的主教凯恩斯身上来摧毁德玛城的故事。之前乐队曾经把 Ned 扩写为“神经扩展装置”(Neuro-Expansion Device,比如在这个 Instagram 个人页面)。根据这支录影带里面的内容,双手握住 Ned 头上的这对角并向上举起,就可以附身在其他的躯体身上并控制他们的行为——无论是活人(《Jumpsuit》里面的 Clancy),动物(《Saturday》和这支影片开头的 Trash)还是死人(这支影片末尾的凯恩斯)。

同日 dmaorg.info 更新一篇克兰西的日记和一张照片。日记基本上是对《The Outside》影片的复述。照片描绘了如何利用 Ned 身上的扩展装置来附身别的躯体,包括跳舞的动作。照片左上角写着“seize Keons”(夺取凯恩斯)。左侧关于角的图示下侧用罗马文写着“Ψυχή κίνησις”,即 Psychokinesis(念力,来源),使用意识去移动物体的力量。图示下方的文字应该是关于如何寻找躯体并附身主教的指示“seize available vessel at Voldsøy eastern cave intercept bishops/glorious gone = available vessel/bishops control the available vessel! intercept & seize/they will make you a weapon”(在Voldsøy东部洞穴夺取可用的容器 拦截主教/光荣的逝去者=可用的容器/主教控制可用的容器!拦截和夺取/他们将使你成为武器)。

18 日更新的照片 w-eap-ø-n.jpg

这是什么东西?这个装置?这个礼物?某种神经连结或者扩展装置。心灵制动的武器?

这太荒谬了。

为什么这个东西要送给我?为什么我是唯一一个可以掌控它的人?这就是我存活下来的原因吗?

当我在石块上面等待时,我的头脑飞速运转——向黑暗处望去。等着对面的火炬跟我们汇合——那个他让我等候的信号。

这个东西给我的感觉异常熟悉。不是手里的芒刺,而是它驾驭的力量。我以前感觉到过。

我在城市的黑暗角落里面听到过的说法是不是也是来源这里?那些传说和故事我原本以为是妄言,只是小孩的噩梦而已——关于主教如何使用那些躯体的传说。那些荣耀逝去的“光荣”市民——他们被称作空余的容器。

这一切都开始能够解释得通了。

我会出现的症状:血红色的画面,梦见自己飞起来,见到河上骑马者时的出体经历,电视节目上逐渐衰竭的主持人,指挥将沉之船的穿长袍的人……

我们是不是都被主教们用同样的方式“夺取”了?这是不是就是他们力量的来源?他们是真的永生不死,还是说他们只是从另一具躯体身上吸取能量,给他们的宿主带来短暂的第二人生?我还在我的第一人生里面,为什么我已经有了这种掌控力?

一直以来我以为我在和自己的内心世界作斗争。但事实上我是不是在受到其他东西的袭击?其他人的袭击?

这个神秘的小岛给了我一件武器。我们都相信我们可以用它来转变这场战争的势头。

现在,我们必须回到大陆,他们会在那里接收我们的到来。我们会摧毁那里然后重建。虽然距离他上一次跟他们说话已经过去了好几年,我希望他们还没有对火炬手的计划放弃希望。

但这一切是怎么会事先计划好的?

——克兰西

What is this thing? This device? This gift? Some sort of neurological connection or expansion. psychokinetic weapon?

This is absurd.

Why was this given to me? Why am I the only one that can weild it? Was this the reason that I survived?

My mind is racing as I wait here on the rocks - staring off into the darkness. Waiting for our torches to be mirrorred - The signal he told me to wait for.

It feels oddly familiar. Not the spikes in my hand, but the power it harnesses. I've felt it before.

Is this also the source of those rumors I heard in the dark corners of the city? Legends and stories that I assumed were myth, inspired by children's nightmares - tales of what the bishops would use the bodies for. Those "honorable" citizens who achieved The Glorious Gone - referred to as available vessels.

It all begins to make sense.

The episodes I would have: the blood red vision, my dreams of flying, the out of body account of the rider in the river, the decaying hosts of the television show, the robed figures that commanded the doomed ship...

Had we all been "seized" by the bishops using this same technique? Is this where their power comes from? are they immortal, or just feeding off the next body, giving their hosts a brief second-life? I am in my original life, why am I available to this control?

This whole time I thought I was battling my inner self. Was I actually under assault from something else? someone else?

This small eerie island has made me a weapon. We both believev that we can use it to change the momentum of this war.

now, we must return to the mainland where they should be there to receive us. We will destroy and rebuild. Though it's been years since he last spoke with them, I hope they have not lost faith in The Torchbearer's plan.

But how could any of this have been planned?
