My name is Tedesco and I am the sole survivor of an eight-man expedition. Should I reach the surface; my story will change the course of human kind. However I do not believe that this is mine to share. All those who came before me, have met the same fate, their shattered paths set before me, left behind to lend caution. We as humans are taught never to surrender; to fight until our last breath. I fear that alone I cannot escape this vast black underground, I am trapped within a maze of endless fractures; meant to confuse man and keep their secret concealed. However I now know the truth, and what I have learned must never be exposed, for mankind can never know the truth! When I first learned of this place; I focused upon the advances that could come from such a discovery. Possibly the knowledge of a greater existence could bring forth unity among nations or cure our most deadly diseases, but there is no hope here, only death. Alone there is little I can do to assure that this secret remains locked inside the earth, still I will do all that is humanly possible to protect mankind.
