This is the eighth of the twelve journals written by Yeesha that were scattered around The Great Shaft in 2005 while Dr. Watson took the Quest. This journal was found at the controls for the fans near the third Eder Tomahn, and describes Yeesha's departure from Tomahna and journey to D'ni when she was 16.



There is a powerful conjunction between the in and the out, the beneath and the above. A wound, a mouth, a well, a pit. I wanted to make the journey for myself from where the D'ni dug upward, where they almost came to the surface,.[sic] From the place where Ti'ana first climbed downward, and where Father followed evil into the ground.

I began my journey with a heavy burden. It was Ti'ana who came to D'ni, and caused its fall. I am from her. I feel I am destined to bring another destruction.

Father and Mother tried to prepare me - tried to tell me who they thought I was. I still see the power of each. I have the best of each - and the burden of each. And as they watched me leave, I saw the sadness and the fear. But more terrifying, I saw their hope.

And I left my comfort to find me. And even as I took my first step away from Tomahna, my shoulders ached, for the burden I bore. Deep prophecies and weighty destinies.

So much to learn and understand about myself. My father said we can never understand - we can only understand more.

The more I understood the more powerful I became, and the more dangerous I became, and the less I understood.
