"It is known to all man that coins have two sides. This fact is ingrained in our collected mind, held to be as true as the color of the sky and the heat of fire. Dualism exists in all things; to push means to be pushed back, and inevitably, to be attacked means some force rises to defend. But why is this accepted wholeheartedly, without question or concern? Why do we stretch our belief so far, already strained by the existence of monsters, to include the fortuitous appearance of a 'magical' shield right in our moment of need? Yes, a coin has two sides, but both sides exist on the same coin."
"Do not take my words as insult or derision. I am grateful for the protection born of circumstance, and understand that without it, we would be far-pressed to protect our lands and children from the evils that be."
"However, I merely present a different way of thinking, a way that, for curiosity's sake, explores the seemingly coincidental rise. As a man of science, I believe coincidences are to be scrutinized, and that their existence might conceal a trend that is, not only far from luck, but actually rooted in the same mechanics of origin."
"The following collection of essays are based in research over many years. Do not take my conclusions for truth, as much of the discoveries based in my field are still shrouded by natural phenomena behind our current technology's ability to grasp, but understand it still shows the unmistakable signs of a potential pattern."
Haines, Molly Bridget - A theoretical physicist with the Nikai Intellectual Society (NIS), and a common partner in research with Richard Doughtery. She, alongside Dougherty, is one of the top minds in emotive biophysics.
