I DON’T KNOW IF IT WAS BECAUSE I WAS RELIEVED TO LEARN that I was still being actively investigated for the security clearance I needed or if the home search indicated that I was under a new level of scrutiny, but I began to feel more comfortable talking with Dennis about our lack of real progress. Not only that, but Barry and I both began to let him know how much a hindrance it was for us to not be allowed to see and to inspect the other systems of the craft. We could study the reactor and the emitters in isolation, and we were getting closer to having a working instrument to measure the gravitational effects produced, but how that propulsion system functioned within the larger context of the craft was a gaping hole in our understanding.

“This isn’t like a car engine of some unique design that’s been dropped into a conventional automobile. We don’t have a baseline knowledge of the drive train and the transmission and the steering and the suspension that are all common to most cars,” I explained to Dennis in defending ourselves against his accusation that we weren’t trying hard enough. “How this entire craft functions, how this reactor and emitter work in synch with the rest of the components and systems is something we have no idea of. We’re working with an unknowing inside of a larger unknown. That’s not a great situation to be in, especially if others have knowns that they can share with us.”

My analogy seemed to work.

“Makes sense,” Dennis said. “I’ll see what I can do.”

Barry and I took every opportunity after that to work at that tiny fissure in Dennis’s armor. Every chance we got, we mentioned something about how seeing the entire craft was going to help speed the process.

“No one ever said that this was going to be easy,” Dennis said to me one day.

“We’re not asking you to make it easy,” I told him, “We’re asking you to let them know that they don’t have to make it so difficult.”
