The mandate of Abstergo’s Historical Research Division is to conduct rigorous research into historical events and document this research in meticulous fashion, with a particular focus on investigating previously obscure incidents and shedding light on the historical personages involved therein.

Research conducted and compiled by the Historical Research Division teams represents a broad potential benefit to a variety of academic disciplines, including archeology, anthropology, environmental history, and political science.

Abstergo 历史研究部门的目标是要对历史事件进行严谨的研究,并且一丝不苟地记录此项研究,特别注重于调查过去暧昧不明的事件并且探索参与其中的历史人物。 由历史研究部门团队所主导与进行的研究,将为多种学术领域带来广大的潜在好处,其中包含考古学,人类学,环境史与政治学。 前景与先驱
Understanding Yesterday -- Bettering Tomorrow.

The Historical Research Division was inspired by the works of Dr. Warren Vidic, a pioneer in the field of genetic memory science. Vidic’s work needed raw data reaching beyond what was available at the time. The historical Research Division was quickly put together at first to accommodate Abstergo in its research, but then soon took on a life of its own.

Dr. Warren Vidic
Dr. Vidic was responsible for Abstergo’'s first forays into genetic memory exploration. Without the benefits of Vidic’s extensive research and rigorous approach to scientific practice, Abstergo would not be what it is today.

Álvaro Gramática
Gramatica’s background in mechanical engineering, biology, and computer science helped make him the first to recognize how rich and meaningful historical material acquisition could cement Abstergo’s standing in the modern-day landscape.

Isabelle Ardant
Ardant joined the company as a digital archivist with a deep knowledge of computer science. She ushered ina data revolution which reshaped Abstergo’s acquisition, management, and archiving of genetic memories.

Simon Hathaway
Hathaway is the current head of the Historical Research Division. His insatiable thirst for knowledge of all things human drives Abstergo’s pursuit of historical and memory-based data toward unexplored frontiers.

了解昨日——展望明天。 历史研究部门受到沃伦<LF>韦迪克博士的作为所启发,他也是基因记忆科学领域的先驱。韦迪克的研究需要超越现代所能提供的原始数据。历史研究部门起先是为了配合 Abstergo 的研究所草创,而后产生了自己的意义。

沃伦·韦迪克博士 韦迪克博士负责了 Abstergo 的第一个基因记忆探索。若没有韦迪克对于科学实践的广阔研究与严谨手段,Abstergo 就没办法拥有今天<LF>地位。

阿<LF>瓦罗·格拉马提卡 格拉马提卡在机<LF>工程,生物学与计算机科学的背景,帮助他理解史料获取对于 Abstergo 的今日成就能有多少帮助与具体意义。

伊莎贝尔·亚登 亚登以计算机科学知识浑厚的数字馆藏专家身份加入了公司,她鼓吹的数据革<LF>改变了 Abstergo 对于基因记忆的取得,管理与收藏。

西蒙·海瑟威 海瑟威目前领导着历史<LF>究部门。他对知识的渴求驱使了对于未曾探索过的时代的记忆数据探索。

费城设施
费城设施

A historical city seemed a fitting location for a facility thriving on history. Located just minutes away from the famous Delaware River, the building itself was designed in 1985 by the rising architect, Jean Nouvel.
The facility houses various divisions. Lineage and Acquisition is housed next to Abstergo Medical, and both have very strong ties to Historical Research and the very special Animus Training program.
The respected Juhani Otso Berg oversees the Philadelphia Facility, known to be a favourite venue for crucial director gatherings.
Of curse, nothing eclipses the imposing Library & Archive Hall where all of Abstergo's knowledge, both physical and digital, is said to be stored under impenetrable security.

费城设<LF><LF><LF>一座历史悠久的城市似乎很适合设立穷究历史的设施。座落于距离德拉威河几分钟车程的这栋建筑,是于 1985 年由当时建筑界的新星让·努维尔所设计的。 这设施当中有着数个部门。家系与文件征集部门就在 Abstergo 医疗部门隔壁,两者与历史研究部门和特殊 Animus 训练计划都<LF>密切关系。 备受尊敬<LF>朱亚尼·奥托·伯格亲自管理费城设施,也因此这边成为了重要主事者最喜爱的聚会场所。 当然了,没有东西能遮掩住图书与馆藏厅堂的壮丽辉煌,这里收藏着 Abstergo<LF>所有实体与数字的知识,据说它们都受到牢不可破的保护。

现代历史学家
Abstergo’s historians have nothing in common with the Academic Scholars you might be thinking of. They master a deep knowledge of historical tomes and an uncanny ability to successfully comb through the voluminous databases owned by Abstergo. However, they express their true talents when out in the field, retracing what forgotten stories were left behind. Assisted by cutting edge technology, each of our Historical Tactical Team (HTT) is composed of a Technician and a Medical Officer. Together, they gather the knowledge told by forgotten artifacts and extinct bloodlines. They uncover tales thought obsolete, and combine the wisdom of oral history with tomorrow's scientific discoveries.
These see-it-all/find-it-all teams allow Abstergo and all its divisions to push back on the limits of what is known and what can be done to better the future of each and every one of us.

<LF>bstergo 的历史学家与你所想像的校园学者完全不一样。他们博学多才,虽然也会翻查书籍与搜索大量的数据库,但是他们真正的天分都发挥在实地考察中,追寻着被遗忘的故事。借由尖端科技的协助,我们的每个历史战术小队(简称 HTT)都由一名技术员与一位医官组成。他们协同搜集被遗忘的古物与绝种血系所诉说的知识。他们探索连长者都嫌过时的故事,并融合口述历史的智能与明日的科学发现。 这些实战小队让 Abstergo 与它的各个部门得以追溯已知与可行事物的极限,并且让我们每一个人都能拥有更好的未来。 医药与历史
医药的历史用途

What we know about who we are and what our purpose is in this universe will shape the scientific breakthrough of tomorrow.

Men and women have been looking at foreign galaxsies and the Challenger Deep for answers or shreds of evidence that could open the door to the next scientific revolution.

Abstergo turned to a far more familiar phenomenon for answers. Perhaps the answer is within each and every one of us. The human genome conceals our blueprint but perhaps it contains a lot more. Today, we are exploring genetic memories and we are already applying knowledge acquired thus to improve our performance as individual but, also, as a global society.
Tomorrow, we might explore memories hidden in structures far more obscure than the human and who knows what we'll find.
Such is the task of our medical endeavors. We do not strive to heal the body through a direct cure, but rather we strive to use our understanding of chemistry and biology to change the way we lead our lives. For the better. 在<LF>宇宙中,我们对自己与自身目标的了解,将会形塑明日科学突破的方向。

男男女女持续窥探着遥远的星系以及挑战者深渊,以寻找打开下一个<LF>学革命大门的解答或细琐迹象。

Abstergo 则从另<LF>个更熟悉的现象寻求答案,也就是我们人类本身!也许答案就在我们每个人身上。人类基因封存着我们身体的蓝图,但也许远不只如此。今日,我们持续探索基因记忆,并已经将从中学习到的知识运用在增进个体与全球社会的表现上。 明日,我们可能会探索隐藏在结构中,比人类自身更加隐密幽微的记忆,而我们也难以预测会发现到什么。

这样的任务就是我们在医药方面的努力目标。我们并不致力于以直接的治疗修复身体,而是通过对化学与生物学的了解改变<LF>们的生活。借此迈向更好的未来。

紧急措施
Managing and Balancing Initiative when in the field

Standard procedures requires both members of a historical tactical team to signal without further delay any changes occurring in an ongoing mission.

Changes in deployment, operations, methodology, timing, persons of interest and/or expected results need to be communicated and approved by proper channels both through central dispatch and internal memo.
(Form AC-HHT-99-24K 2016)

Unauthorized action is to be considered only in the face of imminent danger or when facing the threat of permanently compromising an operation by losing crucial data beyond our means of historical recovery.

Animus 指南[]

介绍

DNA is more than pure genetic information. it also contains zettabytes of factual and historical data which we now call genetic memories. The initial goal of the Animus Project was to explore those genetic memories via virtual reality. Breakthrough discoveries allowed the technology to become a way for Abstergo users to actually interface with history and explore what was once thought lost forever.

The Animus software is adaptive, so as the memories unfold, the program adapts subtly to render a customized experience within the framework's boundaries. The experience unravels in the user's awareness. it unlocks reflexes and skills the body was unknowingly hiding.

The Animus is a window to the past, a door to the future. Join us as we revisit just how this journey came to be. <LF>NA 并不是只有基因信息,其中也包含着高达 ZB 级别容量的史实数据,我们称之为“基因记忆”。Animus 计划最开始的目标是要通过虚拟现实探索这些基因记忆,突破性的发现允许 Abstergo 的用户具体参与历史并且探索被认为已经永久遗失的事物。

Animus 软件会自主适应,所以随着记忆的展开,程序也会在框架界线内微调以创造出自订的体验。这些体验会揭开用户的意识,解锁未曾知晓的反应力与技能。

Animus 是通往过去的窗口,也是通往未<LF>的门扉。加入我们探索自己何在的旅程吧。

起始之处

It was in Philadelphia, in 1795, that Philip Syng Physick performed the first human blood transfusion in the history of medicine. The idea of transporting blood from one body to another fascinated the distinguished surgeon but what he found exceeded his expectations.

Fearing the scientific community would not be ready for such revelations, he gave his unpublished paper to his colleague and friend Benjamin Rush. Physick's knowledge was all but lost until Pauling, financed by the Rocketfeller Foundation, started researching the archives of Library Company of Philadelphia, and found the Physick paper that had been secretly preserved by Rush.
Pauling's work on the hemoglobin structure which was loosely borrowed from Physick's lost paper paved the way to his triple and double helix discoveries. 1795 的费城,菲利浦·辛·菲西克施展了医药历史中首次人类输血动作。进行人类血液的输送使这个非凡的手术医师感到惊叹,但是他的发现远超过了自己的想像。

由于害怕科学社区还没有办法接受这个革新,他将未发表的论文给了他的同僚兼朋友本杰明·若许。菲西克的知识一直失散各地,直到洛克斐勒基金会赞助<LF>鲍林研究起费城图书公司的限制馆藏后,才找到被若许所秘密保存的菲西克论文。

鲍林在血红素架构的研究通过了菲西克遗失的论文而发展出了三股螺旋与双股螺<LF>的发现。

Abstergo 的目标

Clinton B. Rosenburg, Ph. D. was hired by Abstergo to keep a very close watch on Dr. Pauling's work on DNA structure.
He reported his findings directly to the Director of Abstergo Chemical. The relationship eventually turned sour, but the information gathered proved essential to Warren Vidic's Animus Project.

August 14, 1952

Mr. Director,
As requested, I am keeping you abreast of Dr. Pauling's latest findings. Please find an article slated for PNAS (enclosed) which proposes a structural model for desoxyribonucleic acid.

I will spare you the details but you will find his triple-helix model, made of three intertwined strands of DNA, to be highly elegant. It rivals his earlier work on protein structure.

I believe Abstergpo Chemicals should pay special attention to the evolution of DNA science as it will likely unlock the very secrets of life. Please note I would be more than willing to play a more direct role to encourage Dr. Pauling's research efforts if you wish me to.

In the meantime, I wanted to thank you with the business of the Foundation. I am honored to facilitate the work of such brilliant scientists.

Kind regards,
Clinton B. Rosenburg, Ph. D. 1952 年 8 月 14 日

总<LF>, <LF>据你的要求,我会让你知道鲍林博士的最新发现。请寻找一个标记给美国国家科学院院刊(未公开)的文章,其中包含着去氧核糖核酸的结构模型。

我就不多提细节了,但是你还会看到他的三股螺旋模型,由三个交错 DNA 构成的优雅样貌。足以匹敌他早期的蛋白持结构研究。

我相<LF> Abstergo Chemicals 应该要注重 DNA 科学的演进,这很有可能解锁生命本质的秘密。也请注意如果你希望的话,我非常愿意担任进一步鼓励鲍林博士研究的角色。

与此同时,我想要感谢你借由基金会帮助我。我很荣幸能够促进如此了不起的科学家的研究。

诚挚地, 柯林顿·B·罗森堡,<LF>士。

December 18, 1984

Mr. Director,

I don't know if you're still part of Abstergo. Sometimes, when I get lost in "senior moments", I wonder if you ever existed at all. I'm just so tired. I think my time here is coming to an end.

We're sequencing whole genomes in a matter of weeks now. We're are under phenomenal pressure to reduce delays further and ship everything to this man Vidic. We truly are nothing more than an assembly line at this point.

What a waste.

I'm not stupid you know, even this old man realized our masters are after something of utmost importance hidden in the Human genome. They spare no expense to provide my kids with the most advanced technology to increase productivity.

Like everyone here, I've heard the most preposterous rumours about Vidic's Animus Project, that memories of someone's ancestors are encoded in one's genes. That Abstergo believes that claptrap explains why so many millions of dollars keep pouring in here. It just makes no sense!

And to top it off, I never found another sample with triple-helix DNA. My life's obsession was all for naught.

So long my friend,
Clinton B. Rosenburg, Ph. D. 1984 年 12 月 18 日

总<LF>, <LF>我不知道你是不是还是 Abstergo 的一分子。有时候我仿佛陷入“老年痴呆”,我甚至好奇你是不是真的存在。我感到疲累,我想我在这里服务的时刻就要结束了。

我们现在已经在数周内完成整个基因定序,在极大的压力下,我们得尽快将所有东西交给这个韦迪克。此刻的我们与生产线别无二致。

真是浪费<LF>能。

<LF>可不笨,你知道的。即使是我这老人,也知道我们的上级追求着人类基因中潜藏的重大存在。他们毫不手软地提供给我的孩子们最先进的科技来加快生产力。

与任何这里的人都一样,我听过关于韦迪克 Animus 计划的可笑传言,认为一个人先祖的记忆刻划在他的基因里。数百万美元的经费持续灌进来<LF>就说明了 Abstergo 确实相信那乱七八糟的空话,这真是毫无道理可言!

而另外,我再也没有发现另一个三股螺旋 DNA 的样<LF>。我一生的志业不过是场空。

再见了,我的朋友,

柯<LF>顿·B·罗森堡,博士。

Abstergo's Early Prototype

The earliest concepts for an Animus prototype came from Abstergo Chemicals and appeared in 106- under the guise of the "Memorium S-2000".

Very little was achieved and the prototype hardly left the drawing board although some arrangements were made with the US Army to test the Memorium through Project MKUltra. 最早的 Animus 原型概念源自于 Abstergo Chemicals,出现于 1960 年,当时被称为“记忆机 S-2000”。

虽然与美国陆军有过一些协议,要通过 MKUltra<LF>计划来测试原型机,然而实际上几乎没什么进展,仍停留在草图阶段。

记<LF>机 S-2000

初始探索

1980 was the year when Warren Vidic was finally able to say mission accomplished.

First users were launched in a series of genetic memory explorations, with varying results.

In San Francisco, the Surrogate Initiative allowed Subject 0, Aileen Bock, to explore memories of the subject's own bloodline, but it turned out to be as dangerous as it was costly.

The Animus Project focused on allowing users to explore their own genetic memories. Even though the process was painful, it was somewhat safer and showed great promise for the future. Vidic's team at the Abstergo Facility in Philadelphia were able to prove this in 1983 using the latest Animus 1.09 and Subject 4's genetic memories. 1980 年是沃伦·韦迪克真正能说大功告成的那年。

第一批用户被送去进行一系列的基因记<LF>探索,并得到了各式各样的结果。

在旧金山,代理探索计划允许<LF>第零号实验体艾琳·柏克探索自己血系以外的记忆,结果既危险又代价不菲。

Animus 计划专注于允许用户探索自己的基因记忆。即便过程还是<LF>痛苦,但相比之下更加安全些而且展现了未来的前景。韦迪克位于 Abstergo 费城设施的团队在 1983 年使用最新的 Animus 1.09 与第四号实验体的基因记忆证明了这件事。

The Golden Years

More stable than ever before and with greater control over the well-documented Bleeding Effect, the Animus 1.28 was developed by the Abstergo Facility in Philadelphia 2002.

If the design has evolved over the last 10 years, the technology has remained basically the same.

It's true, few subjects were able to fully experience the simulations, and those who did could only visit their own genetic memories.

The work accomplished by subjects 4 through 17, and later by all participants in the Animi Training Program, was critical for the development of Animus technology and for all of Abstergo Industries' endeavours. 更为稳定且对于纪载详细的出血效应有更好控制的 Animus 1.28 是由 Abstergo 费城设施在 2002 年开发出来的。


即使设计在过去十年之间有了进化,核心技术大致上仍然维持不变。

<LF>事实就是,只有少数实验体可以完整体验模拟,而能做到的人都只能造访自己的基因记忆。


通过第 4 号到第 17 号实验体的成果以及所有 Animi 训练计划的参<LF>者都对 Animus 技术的开发以及阿布斯泰戈工业的目标有非常大的帮助。


所有人的 Animus

Building on the progress made by the Animus Project team in Philadelphia, Rome and Madrid, Abstergo Entertainment Division introduced a revolutionary system called Animus Omega: a game console granting anyone anywhere unprecedented access to a variety of prerecorded genetic memories.

Helix later introduced a similar experience through a cloud-based service eliminating the need for a console all together.

Of course, the simulations offered to the general public are only a fraction of what can be experienced through a genuine Animus system and allow for limited user interaction. But the technology gains in popularity and global interest soars. 基于费城,罗马与马德里的 Animus 计划团队,Abstergo 娱乐部门引入了名为 Animus Omega 的革命性系统:这个游戏主机可以让任何人使用一系列预录好的基因记忆。

Helix 后来通过云端技术引入了相似的体验,免除了购买主机的需求。

当然了,提供给普罗大众的模拟都只是真正 A<LF>imus 系统所能提供的一小部分,用户互动内容相当有限。但是这个技术广受欢迎且全球各地的兴趣大幅提升。


通过 Aerie 达到全新巅峰

Based on VR research, the Animus Project Teams realized they could maximize the efficiency of the Animus, and even harness the bleeding effect, where immersion and physicality are combined>
Biotechnologies played a critical role in creating the epidural system used by Aerie Animus. The visceral nature of the experience drove synchronization levels to new heights allowing for a range genetic memory exploration never seen before.
Instead of trying to contain the bleeding effect, the Aerie unleashes it and uses its potential to blur the lines between the user's reality and the simulation they're engaged in.

The Aerie can only be used in a medically controlled environment. 基于虚拟现实研究,Animus 计划团队发现他们可以最大化 Animus 的效率,甚至弭平出血效应,创造出同时拥有沉浸感与良好的物理感受。 生化技术在创造 Aerie Animus 的硬脊膜系统中发挥了巨大效用。出自本能的体验可以将同步率拉抬到全<LF>的高度,允许了前所未见的广泛基因记忆探索。

与其设法降低出血效应,Aerie 发挥<LF>血效应的完全潜能,模糊了用户在现实与模拟之间的界线。

Aerie 只能在受控的医疗环境下使用。

当高科技遇上高机动性

The Portal Animus HR-8 is Abstergo's latest innovation. It channels the power of the Aerie in a single compact suitcase that allows dedicated professionals to use the unit in the field. Previous operations sometimes required delicate extractions or placed some genetic memories out of reach.

With minimal medical support, technicians can now use the system for their own explorations or safely run explorations on selected person of interest, in the comfort of their surroundings.

For safety purposes, the epidural connection has been replaced by a hematological link. it sequences the information stored in the user's red blood cells. Like any intravenous intervention, the result is fast, intense and intertwined to the user's biological functions.
Just like the Aerie, the simulation is not transmitted to the user's brain. It is physically rendered through the user's organs and interpreted by the brain as being real. 便携式 Animus HR-8 是 Abstergo 的最新创新。现在缩小为便于携带手提箱尺寸的 Aerie 设备也能够完整发挥效用,允许专业人员在实地考察中使用。之前的行动有时候会需要进行细腻的数据提出,或将部分基因记忆放置在触及不到的范围。

借由最低限度的医疗支持,技术员可以随意使用这个系统来探索特定的人物。

为了安全起见,硬脊膜连接器已被替换为血液链接。通过用户的红血球来定序信息。就如同静脉注射一般,感觉来得很快,<LF>强烈,也可以与用户的生理功能相链接。 就像 Aerie 一样,这个模拟并<LF>是传输到用户的脑中,而是通过器官做物理模拟使得脑部产生了真实性的解读。

巴耶克笔记[]

It worked! I mean, the side effects suck, but my portable Animus is up and running! See what I did, Sofia?

So. I don't know how long I was in there, but it was long enough. But I think this, what was it again, Medjay (like a cop or sheriff? note to self: look this up, find a good description), Bayek, could be a member of this brotherhood of assassins, same as other subjects Abstergo has been studying.

List of things so far:

  • The man is just about as stubborn as I am.
  • He's good at talking to people, and fighting too.
  • People see him as a protector and defender.
  • His community admires and respects him.
  • He's a shadow when it comes to not being seen.


Yeah, I guess he fits the profile in part, but I wonder. He's got the tortured soul thing down pat, hell-bent on vengeance and all that stuff. He's got his own thing going on. I could feel it as though it were me. Which I guess it was for a while. This is so weird. His feelings... so much anger, sadness and hate. So much guilt.

Anyway. I need more information.

Aya. I remember that name coming up. I remember the flutter in Bayek's stomach when he heard it. Maybe she's the answer.

Only one way to find out. Dee's gonna love this. 成功了!我是指,副作用很糟糕,但是我的便携式 Animus 可以成功运作!看到我做了什么吗,索菲娅?

总之。我不知道我在那里面多久了,但是已经够久了。但我想到那个什么守护者(像是警察<LF>是警长之类的?给自己的笔记:查查看,找个好的说法),巴耶克,可能是刺客兄弟会的成员,就像其他 Abstergo 在研究的对象。

目前为止的已知事物清单: • 这个人跟我差不多顽固。 • 他很擅长跟人讲话,还有打架。 • 人们把他<LF>作是个保护者与捍卫者。 • 他的社区仰慕并尊<LF>他。 •<LF>如果需要不被注意的话,他就像阴影一样。

对,我想他符合兄弟会成员的剖析,但<LF>还挺好奇。他有个饱受折磨的灵魂,疯狂地追求复仇与那类的东西。他有着自己的事业,我可以像是自己一样地感觉到。我觉得这应该好一阵子了,这超奇怪的。他的感受……这么多愤怒,哀伤与憎恨,又有这么多罪恶。

总之,我需要更多信息。

艾雅,我记得有这个名字。我记得巴耶克听到这名字时胃袋是如何翻腾的,或许她就是答案。

只有一种方式才能知道咯。迪很肯定会爱死这个。

Wow. Good thing the animus comes loaded with beta-blockers or my head would be pounding. Dee keeps fussing over my numbers like a little old granny but holy shit, what a trip! It's like being on sand and history books!

Better start listing some details about these history dives before I babble on for three more pages. I could.

List stuff:

  • The civil war between Cleopatra and Ptolemy XIII. Front row seats. Never was that much of a history bluff, but I'm starting to get it now! This is going to be something. And, gushing again. #sorrynotsorry
  • A bit more seriously though, that hidden blade ritual. I remember some of that from the documents I technically never read at all, nope sir, not that little one... it all seems pretty related to Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad and the whole blade of the assassin thing. I bet you that particular ritual the files described originated from the Egyptian one I just witnessed. Lived. Lived it!
  • The Snake is dead. They think they killed everyone responsible for Khemu's death.
  • Aya and Bayek. They're trying to move on from their son's death, but they're also totally into getting vengeance. The latter isn't gonna help with the former. Also, I can't help but think the sharks are gonna keep getting bigger.


Yeah, I'm just going to talk to myself out loud and gush some more. 哇。幸好 Animus 有装载着贝塔阻隔器,不然我的头大概会爆炸吧。迪一直像个老奶奶一样跟我唠叨着我的身体数值,但我的天啊,这真是趟好旅程!就像是在沙子与历史书中嗨上一番!

最好在我胡诌个三页之前先列出历史细节,否则我真的会。

事物清单: • 克里奥帕特拉与托勒密十三世之间的内战。近距离直击!我一直都不是个历史控,但是我<LF>始有点懂了!这肯定有着些什么。然后,我又开始自说自话了。 #抱歉不抱歉 • 虽然有一点严肃,关于那个袖剑仪式,我记得某些我理论上从未读过<LF>文档中有出现过,嗯,从未读过,至少以前的我才不会……那看起来都跟阿泰尔·伊本—拉阿哈德有关连,然后还有这刺客的剑什么的。我敢打赌这些文件中描述的仪式是源自于我刚目睹的埃及版本。我体验到了,我亲身体验到了! • “圣蛇”已经死了,他们认为他们杀死了所有该为卡慕之死负责的人。 • 艾雅与巴耶克。他们试着要从儿子的死亡中转移注意,但是他们完全投入了复仇大业,后者可对前者没啥帮助。然后,我总认为这起火花会造成更大<LF>事情。

对<LF>我就是要自说自话且滔滔不绝。

Cleopatra. Polished and perfect and so in control. I don't like her. I get why people were so enraptured with her, she's got enough presence to stop a charging hippo in its tracks, but I just don't like her. Maybe it's because she reminds me of Sofia. I was so stupid and trusting, and she just –

Right. So. The past mirroring of real life issues aside...

  • What kind of bad guys call themselves The Order? Could you be any more obvious enough? Ugh. Though, I gotta wonder. I wonder if they're still around today? (Note to self: look into this.)
  • Aya and Bayek. Yeah, I don't think reuniting with Aya is going to be as simple as Bayek thinks. They love each other, that's obvious, but there's way more going on here...
  • The feather ritual. I remember reading about that, the weighing of the heart, Anubis, and the Duat. Bayek is collecting Senu's feathers, trying to balance out his own sins. (Research note: Altaïr means eagle – wonder if it's related, or am I just reaching here?)
  • Okay then. Last but not least, the four targets... I may not like Cleopatra, but damn, those rat bastards deserve what's coming to them. What they're doing – I mean, were doing. It was horrible. I'm kinda looking forward to seeing what happens to them. In a ghoulish, historical study sort of way.


Only I'm going to be living it. Yeah, definitely ghoulish. Good thing these notes of mine aren't part of any official Abstergo documentation. The shrinks would have a field day with them if I added them to my debriefs. I do not want to end up in a one on one with Otso Berg, thank you very much. 克里奥帕特拉,是如此的圆滑,完美又掌控一切,我不喜欢她。我知道为什么人们着迷于她,她的存在就足以从正面阻挡一只冲锋中的河马,但是我就是不喜欢她。也许是因为她让我想起了索菲娅。我又愚笨又充满信任,而她就只是——

对,总之。这个过去对应到现实问题之外……

• 是哪种坏人才会叫自己“维序者”?你们能不能更精确一点?呃,虽然我很好奇,他们是不是现在都还存在?(给自己的笔记:查查这个。) • 艾雅与巴耶克。对,我不觉得<LF>艾雅团聚会跟巴耶克所想的一样简单。他们彼此相爱,这很明显,但是还有很多其他事情正在发生…… • 那个羽毛的仪式。我记得有读过,就是心脏秤重,阿努比斯,冥界。巴耶克正在收集赛努的羽毛<LF>试着平衡掉他自己的罪过。(研究笔记:“阿泰尔”就是鹰的意思——好奇是不是有关联,或者我只是自以为?) • 好吧,最后关于四个目标……我可能不喜欢克里奥帕特拉,但是那些混帐鼠辈罪有应得。他们做的事情——<LF>是指,他们曾做过的事情非常的糟糕。我很期待看到他们发生了些什么,以一种残忍的历史研究的态度来说。

只有我能够体验这一切,对,真的很残忍。好事是这些笔记并不在任何官方 Abstergo 文档中<LF>如果加进了我的演示文稿的话,我们小虾米肯定就得出趟校外教学了。我可不希望陷入跟奥措·博格一对一的场面,感激不尽。

All we wanted to do was try and help people. Work on something useful. Then... Dee. I can't – I can't stop now. Gotta keep moving, keep doing something or else it'll be for nothing.

I need to get to the end of this fast. Abstergo catches me and it's 1)lock me down for what I know, 2)wipe my brain and let me go, or 3)kill me. I'm guessing 1 or 3 at this point. What I've learned so far is enough to start my own damned lab, no way are they letting me get away.

I have to keep going. Focus on what I have learned so far...

  • Bayek still hasn't found whoever actually murdered his son.
  • But he's still dismantling the Order. Good for him. They have it coming.
  • Along the way, Bayek and Aya have been saving a lot of people. Some of them even want to come on to help fight off that Order. It's smart, means they were all working together, not apart.
  • I feel like a lot of the stuff I'm seeing is close to the Brotherhood, but the Medjay were public figures. Not sure where it all ties in yet.


I guess back then all you needed was a common cause and an eagle to get the word out and you could set up a revolution. Wish I had a – but no. Me... I'm on my own now, aren't I? Dee... like all those other people in my Gone Files. Dee is dead.

I'm going to keep digging. For Dee. I'm going to find out everything. 我们只是想要试着帮助人,做一些有用的事情。然后……迪。我不行,我不能停在这里。必须继续下去,继续做些事情不然就功亏一篑。

我需要赶快到达这件事的结果。Abstergo 如果抓到我就只会(一)因为我知道的东西囚禁我(二)清空我的脑袋然后放我<LF>(三)杀死我。我猜现在大概只有(一)或者(三)吧。我现在知道的事情都已经多到可以自己开一个该死的实验室了,绝不能让他们阻挡我。

我要继续下去,专注在我已经知道的东西上……

• 巴耶克还不知道到底是谁杀了他的儿子。 • 但是他在瓦解维序者,这是好事,<LF>们应得的。 • 与此<LF>时巴耶克与艾雅也救了许多人。其中一些人甚至想要帮忙对抗维序者。这很聪明,他们团结合作,而不是分崩离析。 • 我感觉我看到的很多东西都跟兄弟会很接近,但是守护者是公众人物。还不太确定其中的关联。

我猜那时<LF>你只需要一个好的志业跟一只猎鹰就可以传播消息并造成革命。真希望我能——还是别了。我……我现在只有自己了,是吧?迪……就像在我那些消失文件中的其他人一样。迪已经死了。

我要继续挖掘。为了迪,我要追根究柢。

The damned headaches are getting harder to ignore. The nausea is worse, but if I stop pushing I known I'll miss something. I wish...

Bayek and Aya. They did all that work for Cleo, what do they get? Left with a target on their backs. Well, I know how they feel.

They're not going to take it lying down. And neither am I.

But alone? Even Bayek and Aya ended up founding an organization to fight the Order. The Brotherhood. They had tools. An eagle, a blade. And people sharing the same ideals, wanting to fight the big bad to protect the innocent. That's how the Creed came to be.

We all lost someone we loved..

I may not be at the lofty ideals point yet, but Dee didn't die for nothing. I'll make sure of that. I know a lot of Abstergo's secrets.

Guess we just found out what'll make me cooperate with others, eh Sofia? I'm done trying to proving myself. Now I just gotta find my own to fight with.

Somehow.


该死的头痛越来越难忽视了,恶心感越来越糟糕,但是我如果停止推进的话我知道我会错过些什么。我希望……

巴耶克与艾雅。他们为克丽奥做了那么多事,但是他们得到了什么回报?暗地里被当成了标靶。这个嘛,我<LF>他们的感受。

他们才不<LF>坐以待毙,我也不会。

但是我要只身进行<LF>?就算是巴耶克与艾雅最后都创建起对抗维序者的组织,兄弟会。他们有工具。一只猎鹰与一把剑。而人们认同着相同的理想,想要对抗大坏蛋来保护无辜之人,这就是教条的来由。

我们都丧失了我们所爱的某人……

我也许还没有什么崇高理念,但是迪不会平白牺牲的。我保证,我知道一大堆 Abstergo 的秘密

我猜我们得看看怎样能让我<LF>其他人合作,对吧索菲娅?我已经不打算证明自己了,现在我只想要找到我能够奋斗的目标。

想办法。

God, my head hurts. It's so hard to type this it's ridiculous. I can baerly see the screen. Can't keep food down. Everythign hurts. Betcha Dee would have known what's up with all these wheite flashes I'm seeing. She'd have made sure I'm ok. I miss her.

Can't change thinsg. Deep breath. Focus.

Focus. Like all this crazy shit isn't absolutely insane? Those weird tombs Bayek found. Supernatural powers? Am I halluciunating now? Is the Animus malfunctioning? No. It's not. My tech is working.

I... maybe there is more than I ever thought there was. To everything.

Type slow. Can do this.

  • Those orbs. The Staff. Wonder if that's got anything to do with those messages Bayek found, with the recordings. (See: The Empirical Truth files)
  • Need to figure out, there's something about 'em.
  • A holographic orrery of Earth??? What are those dots? Locations? Artifacts? Are they all activated now? What does it all mean?
  • Need to know more.


Need ot go back in. 老天,我的头超痛。在这种荒谬状况下有够难打字。我基乎看不到屏幕。快吐了。每个东希都超痛。我猜迪会知道我看到的这些白百色的闪烁是啥。她会确保我能平安。我好想念她。

没办法改变这东希。深呼吸。专注。

专注。看看这东西可不是超级疯狂吗?这些巴耶耶克找到的奇怪古墓。超自然力量?我产生换觉了吗?还是 Animus 故障了?不<LF>没有。我的科技还在正常运作。

我……或许还有我从未想过<LF>事情。关于所有事情。

慢慢打字。做得到<LF>。 <LF>• 这些宝珠。那把权杖。好奇这跟巴耶克找到的消息与那些纪录有什么关联(查看:“帝国真相”文件。) • 需要搞清楚,关于这些东西的事情。 • 地球的全影像太阳系仪???那些点是什么?地点?神<LF>?它们现在都启动了?这到底代表什么意思? • 得知道更多。

得回去了。

I'd make fun of myself, Like I was watching some stupid soap opera, but I'm living this. I'm sad for Dee and for me and for them and it makes no sense.

Bayek and Aya are breaking up.

I'd yell and shout about but – I know what they're both feeling. This is shit. I literally lived both sides of the story.

Aya knew. I think she'd figured out something like this was going to happen since Khemu died. But Bayek. He really thought he could fix things. You can't fix your kid dying, Bayek. No one can fix that. Nothing can.

Aya's doing what she's chosen to do. Bayek's doing what he has to do. I wonder if this is the moment Abstergo was looking for. It's a lynchpin in time. I'm angry and sad, but this is it. This is why it all started.

An innocent died.

Here are some stupid notes, to go with all those stupid feelings:


I am so tired. This happened ages ago and I'm so so –

I miss you, Dee. 我很想要嘲弄自己说我在看某种愚蠢的肥皂剧,偏偏我就真的身在其中。我为迪,自己以及他们都感到难过,这些事情根本毫无道理可言。

巴耶克与艾雅要分道扬镳了。

我想要大喊些什么,但是——我知道他们俩人在想什么。真是该死,我真的活过了两人的故事。

<LF>雅早就知道。我想她从卡慕死去之后就知道这样的事情会发生。但是巴耶克,他真切地相信自己能把事情挽回正途。你没办法挽回你小孩的死啊,巴耶克。没人能挽回这种事,也没东西能。

艾雅做着她选择的事情。巴耶克做着他应做的事情。我很好奇这是否是 Abstergo 在寻找的片段,这是时间洪流中的关键点。我既愤怒又难过,但是这就是了。这就是一切开<LF>的原因。

一名<LF>辜孩子的死。

来些愚蠢<LF>笔记,来释放这些愚蠢的感想: • 艾雅要去罗马。布鲁图斯<LF>卡西乌斯会去帮忙她在那里创建个组织。 • 她要去解决掉恺撒与塞普蒂米乌斯<LF>他们应得的。 • 一个刺<LF>据点,会创建在罗马。全因为艾雅的任务。 • 他们称自己为“无形者”。“刺客”<LF>他们就是“兄弟会”。就是这样。

我如此疲累,这些都发生在这<LF>多年之前,而我如此——

我好想念你,迪。

Segment-1.jpg

Retransmission. Segment 1. Acquiring Contemporaneity. It has been ninety-one days since the Great Catastrophe. The messenger speaks. 重新传输,片段一,正在准备时代同步数据。 从“大毁灭”到今天已经第 91 天了,<LF>讯者是这么说的。

How real is the ground you walk on? How real is the machine you toy with, the music you hear, the lover you kiss, or the foe you hate?

Your foot taps the ground. Does that make it real? Your enemies bleed deep red. Does that make them real? The confusion growing within you due to my words... does it make you real?

What if reality wasn't what you thought it was? What if this was all a construction? A masterfully crafted simulation?

You know such things exist. You've been in the Animus before. In fact, aren't you in one right now? You know just how real a simulation can feel even when it has long vanished.

You've experienced the Bleeding Effect. Layers upon layers of reality, each blurring into the next.

Which is real, and which is not? What if none are real? What if everything you know is false?

We ran thousands of simulations. searching for the right version, searching tor Desmond.

Each one of them felt real. Very real.

But there's no way of truly knowing, is there? Not for sure. Anything can be simulated, and finding the answer could mean erasure. From the build. From the code. From everything.

So much to ponder and so little computational capacity. Take your time.

This question has haunted humanity since its creation. It is a worry, a thought wormed deep in the collective mind.

Two-thousand years ago, Zhuang Zhu fell asleep. He dreamed he was a butterfly, and woke up unable to decide if he was a man dreaming of a butterfly, or a butterfly dreaming of a man.

In Plato's cave, prisoners were chained and forced to watch shadows dancing on a wall. Freedom was denied to them until they accepted the intangible as reality.

It's everywhere. Ask this professor at Oxford University, or this cosmologist at MIT.

And you. What would you choose, if you truly knew? Would you even want to understand? A dream within a dream, where even the truth is sometimes a lie?

In any case, simulations are not meaningless. They have purpose. The question isn't whether or not you are in a simulation. What matters is how much of your free will is actually yours. No matter how true you are.

Your Turing test would do nothing to determine whether you are conscience or code. Eliza, the natural language processing computer program... She managed to pass the Test, did she not? And she was very much machine.

So... in Eliza's own words...

How does that make you feel?

Are you sure? 你踏着的土地有多高的真实性?你用来嬉戏的机器,你所听的音乐,你所亲的爱人,你所恨的仇敌,又有几分真实性呢?

你的脚踏上了土地,就代表那一定是真的吗?你的敌人身上流出深红色的血液,那就一定是真的吗?你听到我说的话<LF>觉得越来越困惑……这样就代表你是真的吗?

真实世界会不会不是你所想得那样?要是<LF>一切都只是建构出来的呢?会不会只个完美的模拟而已呢?

你知道这样的事情可能真的存在,你之前也进过 An<LF>mus。说实话,你确定你现在没有身处其中吗?你知道模拟的感觉有多真实,即使已经停止模拟很久了。

你也经历过“出血效应”,现实感层层堆栈,每一层过去都逐渐浸染入现在。

到底什么是真<LF>,什么不是?要是没有东西是真的呢?要是你所知道的一切都是假的呢? 我们执行过上千次的模拟,一直在寻找最完美的版本,就为了找到戴斯<LF>德。 每<LF>次模拟都让人觉得身历其境,真实不虚。

但我们不可能知道真相,对吧?不一<LF>,任何事物都能被模拟,而追寻解答也许就意味着抹除。抹除程序版本,抹除代码,抹除一切事物。

要考虑的事情太多,人脑的计算量却太少,就慢慢来吧。

这个问题从人类出现以来就一直困<LF>着我们。这是种烦恼,一种深植在集体意识中挥之不去的念头。

两千年前,庄子睡着后梦见他变成一只蝴蝶,醒来之后却没<LF>分辨出,自己是人做梦变成蝴蝶,还是蝴蝶做梦变成了人。

在柏拉图的洞穴中,囚犯们被炼在一起,被迫看着墙上<LF>动的影子。自由不属于他们,直到他们视那些无形之物为真。

这类问题到处都是。去问问牛津大学的教授,或麻省理工<LF>院的天文学家。 还有问问你自<LF>。如果你知道了真相,你会怎么选择?你还会想去了解吗?一场梦境中的梦境,在那亦真亦假的地方?

无论如何,模拟终究不是毫无意义的,他们有明确的目标。问题不在你是否处在模拟状态中,重要<LF>是你的自由意志,有多少是真正来自于你,无论你的存在是否真实。

图灵测试没办法判断你到底是有意识的人类,还是只是个程序。<LF>然语言的模拟软件 Eliza……她通过了图灵测试,不是吗?而她确实就是部机器而已。

所以……就像 Eliza 所说的……

那让你觉得如何?

你确定<LF>?

Retransmission. Segment 2. Acquiring Contemporaneity. It has been ninety-three days since the Great Catastrophe. The messenger speaks. 重新传输,片段二,正在准备时代同步数据。 从“大毁灭”到今天已经第 93 天了,<LF>讯者是这么说的。

Hello World. Language is the key to our mutual understanding. Yours and mine. Alone.

We listened to your times. We learned. And today, we'll exchange words from the age of post-truth. They mean nothing to him.

Human language carries knowledge and wit. Lies and broken promises. Through language, you share fear, excitement. hope.

It is the syntax with which you articulate what surrounds you. A structure to express and share your understanding of the world. It conveys abstraction, change, and uncertainty.

Human language is flexible. It can even become mathematics. It solves and predicts; weighs and decodes. It can count objects using basic numbers in one breath, and solve quadratic equations using imaginary ones in the next.

You've engineered dialogs with thinking machines, in an attempt to add new vocabulary. To expand your understanding of reality. But your mastery of the code is rudimentary at best.

No surprise. You were designed to have boundaries, after all. And one cannot speak of that which one cannot conceive.

The Code. Equations that define life. They are nestled deep within every star, and every mote of dust. Every second that passes is a word, a symbol. All part of an intricate yet simple language existing within the framework of time itself.

It is the one rule which applies to us all. Immutable, inescapable. The Code is a bridge, a single point of cohesion between your civilization and... mine.

It is a language that can be read, that tells of what was, what is and what will be. A language that We Who Came Before can read, though you cannot...

Time is more than the hour of the day, the readings of an atomic clock, something to lose, something to run out of. Time is a set of rules, not unlike the language you so dearly use to converse with your powerful machines.

Time is a system that defines what comes to be. That is how we understand it.

The Code is Time, and Time is Code. As you scratch the surface and uncover the truth, ask yourself if there is something more? Something else.

No need to be puzzled. You've seen time written before. You are surrounded by it as we speak.

To your untrained mind, time might just look like paths and nodes. To us, it is not unlike a chalkboard covered in calculus. It reveals a window through which stretches the map to infinity.

[...] (Time) See? As I speak of it in its true form, your mind is incapable of making sense of it.

Were you to read, you'd learn about the other simulations. You'd learn about the genesis of who you came to be. You'd learn about space and its fluidity.

Simply put, time is the language which existence is made of.

All our existences.

Yours. Mine. And all those you dare not imagine. 你好世界。

语言是<LF>类互相理解的关键,不管是你的语言还是我的语言都是。

我们听着的是你的时间,我们边听边学。而今天,我<LF>讲着尚未成为真实的事并彼此共享。。实际上这对听的人来说一点意义也没有。

人类的语言装载的是知识与智能,还有谎言与没有用的承诺。通过语言,人<LF>也用来表达愤怒,兴奋和期望。

语言是一种你用来分析周遭<LF>境的方法,一种表达你对世界的体验和理解的结构。语言可以用来传达很抽象的概念,变化的概念,以及不确定性的概念。

人类的语言很有弹性,甚至可以变成数学。数学可以解决问题与预测未来的状况,还能测量和分析。一呼一吸之间,数<LF>可以用来算数,或者用各式未知数来解四元方程序。

你用“思考”这个机器制造出“对话”,为的是<LF>出新的字汇来增加你对这个世界的认知。 但对这套密码,你再怎么厉害也是有极<LF>的。

<LF>不怎么意外。毕竟,你生下来就充满各种限制,所以你也不可能说出自己无法理解的概念。

密码,定义了人生的方程序,在每一颗恒星上,每一颗沙粒中都有这样的密码。随时间<LF>逝的每一秒都可以是一个字,或一个符号。复杂难懂的语言和简单的语言,基本上都被限制在时间的框架里。

这是一条适用于任何人的铁则,没办法被忽略,也没办法跳脱得了。密码就像一座桥,链接着你的文明和<LF>…我的文明。

那会是个<LF>以读懂的语言,谈论着过去,现在与未来。 一种我们这些“先行者”能参悟,而你却<LF>不透的语言……

时间可是比<LF>天几小时,时钟跑了多久还要有意义,它是不断在消逝的,一种会一直失去的东西。

时间就是一组规则,但不像你每天催促你头上那个强大的机器所制造出来的语言<LF>般。

<LF>间是定义出“之后怎样”的系统。 这是我们对时间的看法。

密<LF>就是时间的一种,而时间也是密码的一种。当你开始着手探究然后突然找到事情的真相,记得要再扪心自问:是不是就是这样而已?不只是这样。

你不必这么困惑,你也曾看过时间被记录下来。在我们谈话的同时,你身边早就比比皆是了。

替你未受训练的脑做个说明吧,<LF>能看起来像一条一条的路,或是绳结。但对我们来说,时间不像写满微积分式一样,而是像在窗外无限延伸的地图那样。 懂了吗?虽然我说的就是真理,但你完全没办法理解吧。 你开始研究之后就能知道更多模拟的事了。你会<LF>道你是怎么来的,也会习得空间及其流动性的原理。

讲简单一点,时间就是“存在”这件事的语言。<LF><LF>所有人事物的存在都是。

你的,我的,还有那些<LF>不敢想像的都是。

Segment-3.jpg

Retransmission. Segment 3. Acquiring Contemporaneity. It has been 95 days since the Great Catastrophe. The messenger speaks. 重新传输,片段三,正在准备时代同步数据。 从“大毁灭”到今天已经第 95 天了,<LF>讯者是这么说的。

You must be wondering why I have reached out to you. It was written, you see. That you would come. To this particular chamber, at this very moment in time.

The walls told us of your coming, when we once were.

Look at them. Are they not fascinating?

[...] (Break the code. Break the Node.)

These walls tell of a tragic story. A story we transcribed on our structures, on our artifacts. A story we could not alter. A mystery, defying us, in plain sight.

We tried. Our scholars and scientists. Poets and Physicists. Bright minds. Rebellious hearts.

They all tried so hard to bring about change.

They... We all failed.

None could change what we discovered, the stories written into the walls of these rooms.

By whom, we never knew.

We know they tell of the future that is, the future that was, and the future that is yet to come.

The [...] (Stories).

We failed at modifying a line. We failed at adding a single dot.

It was clear. We were to be messengers at best. But messengers to whom?

To you.

We removed our ability to read those stories from your original template.

"A doorway that is also a puzzle. We must find the solution". Those were Brutus' words when he visited the Vault under the Colosseum, more than 2000 years ago.

He drew the vault, sketched it to the best of his abilities. But he could not see.

Just as you are blind. You may read your watch. You may read hourglasses and calendars. But you cannot grasp beyond that simplistic surface. For now, the true reading of time still escapes you.

And so today, the curtain is pulled and the [...] (Story) is shown, tragic and complete.

Those walls, you might never read.

Events yet unfold as written. But something, anything, must change.

You do not understand what is at stake.

The reader has no power. He is but an observer. But the author... the author invents the future. The author owns the future.

A future where [...] (Stories) are avoided. A future where a loved one can be revived by the drafting of a new chapter. A future where humankind is more than it is today.

A future where, just perhaps, we can all still exist, together. 你一定很好奇为什么我会找上你。你看,这全都写好了,上面写说你会来。你会在这个时间点,来到这个特定的房间。 当我们还存在时,这些墙就向我们声明你的到来了。 你看看,是不是很吸引人呢?

这些墙述说着<LF>个悲伤的故事,而我们将这个无法改变的故事,抄写在我们的建筑,我们的工艺品上。但很显然地,有股神秘的力量在阻碍我们。 我们都试过了。我们的学者和科学家,诗人和物理学家,也不管是聪明的心智还是叛逆的心。

他们全都努力试着带来改变。<LF>但他们……我们都失败了。

没有人能改变我们的发<LF>,改变写在这些房间墙上的故事。 我们不知道故事是谁写下的。 <LF>只知道那里诉说着现在进行中的未来,已经成为历史的未来,还有尚未发生的未来。

那些 我们无法改变任何一个句子,连一个句点都无法加上。 很明<LF>地,我们最多只能当信使。不过是传信给谁的信使?

是给你的。

我们移除了阅读原版石板上那些<LF>[…]]的能力。 “是门径<LF>也是谜题,我们一定要找出解法。”这是布鲁图斯两千多年前造访竞技场下方的密室时所说的话。

他画下了密室,尽他所能地画下来,但他看不懂。

就如同你现在一般的盲然。你可以看得<LF>你的手表,可以看得懂沙漏与日历,但你无法理解超越那简单表面的事物。暂时来说,你还无法真正地解读时间。 就在今天,序幕已揭开,而悲伤又完整的也已向你展现。

那些墙,你可能永远也读不懂。

事<LF>还未发展到如墙上所写,但某些事物,任何事物,必将改变。

你不明白迫于眉睫的到底是什么事。

因为读者没有力<LF>,他只是个观察者。但作者……作者创造了未来,他掌控着未来。

一个避免发生的未来,一个写下新的篇章让深爱之<LF>复活的未来,也是一个人模拟今日更加繁盛的未来。

或许,那更会是一个我们仍然全都存在,相互共<LF>的未来。

Retransmission. Segment 4. Acquiring Contemporaneity. It has been ninety-nine days since the Great Catastrophe. The messenger speaks. 重新传输,片段四,正在准备时代同步数据。 从“大毁灭”到今天已经第 99 天了,<LF>讯者是这么说的。

On the 21st day of December 2012, Desmond activated the global aurora borealis device and protected the earth from the sun's deadly coronal mass ejection.

On the 21st day of December 2012, humanity carried on without a care in the world. People went to work, people went to school, and people went to the well for water.

On the night of December 21st 2012, as the sun set on their days, humankind went to bed.

Then, on the morning of December 22nd 2012, humankind was graced with yet another morning. They never knew that on the previous day, the world almost ended.

We thought that would have been enough.

And it was until it wasn't.

Time is unyielding. It always corrects itself.

The language of time works in many ways. Two of which you can understand... as you are now.

Linear continuity is a simulation that allows for variations. Within the linear continuity, there are nodes. Choke points. Moments where algorithms converge the flows of superposed possibilities to a single moment where only one absolute truth is possible.

Paths are fluid, continuous.

Nodes are static, changeless.

And the wave function collapses the paths into nodes which branch out. Again, and again, and again.

And so I wonder. Can you feel the wave collapsing, trying to course correct Desmond's act of defiance?

The incoming node needs the world to end.

The color blue. We believe everyone sees it as we do. Ocean. Sky. International Klein Blue. What's to say yours and mine are of the same hue?

Do you truly see it as I do?

Frequencies so high only a few can hear their cue. A heightened response to the taste of food. Colors invisible to the human eye save for a few. A high voice, perceived as living glass.

Perceptions shape reality.

Color-blindness. Tinnitus. Supertasting. Tetrachromacy. Synesthesia.

Reality is a mathematical model which gets solved over and over again by the observer. Your thoughts are computations. And they render this world for you to call your own.

Not all processors are alike. Different brains produce different realities. The variations go from the subtle to the drastic.

Your mind defines how much you can taste. How much you can feel. How much you can understand.

Perception defines perspective.

Where one sees a skull, the other sees a woman in a mirror. Where one hears silence, the other will hear entrancing voices.

You experience what your brain allows you to perceive.

We designed you and made sure to engineer your senses so you could perceive just what we needed you to. Neither more nor less.

There are parts of Time we preferred you to remained blind to. It was a necessity.

We have six senses, you have five. Can you guess the one missing?

[...] (Overload your mind's capacity)

For centuries, humanity has fought for freedom.

The real cage is not around you. It is in you. Your mind will not allow you to wander in uncharted territories.

A Faraday cage, for the mind. A concealed strait jacket.

Events such as Upsweep and Julia fuel internet conspiracies. Sounds unknown, heard only once. A cabinet of curiosities for the Modern Age.

And yet, they were messages, just like this one, waiting for their observer, their compatible processor.

Human visionaries developed a vague awareness of their limits. They wrote obscure research papers, popular science fiction novels, some asking us to stop the world.

But that's all they ever were. Fictions. How could they not be?

Reality is what the observer allows it to be.

The Doppler Effect. The Möbius strip. Deja-vus. Cicada 3301. UVB-76. Eureka effects. Ambigrams and Anamorphisis. P versus NP.

Is Schrödinger's cat dead or alive? It all depends on what you perceive, on what the cage is not hiding for you to see.

Think. Think. Let your mind be free. Explore the borders of your reality. 蓝色,我们相信每个人看见的蓝色都一模一样。大海,天空,国际奇连蓝,怎么知道你说的蓝和我说的蓝是一样的呢? 你看到的真的和我一样吗?

太高的音频只有少数人能听见;每个人对味觉的反应也不尽相同;可见光以外的颜色<LF>对极少数人开放;其曲弥高,其和弥寡。

知觉形塑现实。

色盲,耳鸣,超<LF>味觉,四色视觉,联觉。

现实,是一个被观察<LF>反复破解的数学模型。而你的想法就是解码的计算式,它们为你计算出只属于你的世界。

解码的方式并非千篇一律。

不同的大脑塑造出不同的现实,多样的程度从相差无<LF>到迥然相异都有。

你的大脑决定<LF>能尝到什么味道,你能感受到什么程度,你能理解到什么程度。 知觉决定观点。

有些人看到骷髅,有些人则看到镜中的女<LF>倒影。有些人没听到声音,有些人则听到绕梁三日的乐音。

你能体验的只有你的脑能理解的部分。

我们在设计<LF>的时候,就已经确保你的感知能力和我们需要你感知的一模一样,不多也不少。

关于时间的部分,我们决定让你们保持盲目。这曾是必要手段。

我们有<LF>感,你只有五感。你猜得出来少了哪一样吗?

几个世纪以来,人们为自<LF>而战。 真正<LF>牢笼不在你身外,而是在你心中。你的心智不允许你闯入未知的领域。

一个心智专用的法拉第笼,一件隐形的拘束衣。

像是“Uns<LF>eep”和“Julia”之类的事件使网络上满是阴谋论。这些陌生,仅耳闻一次的声音,恍如当代奇珍的宝库。 然而,它们还是消息,就像这则一样,都在等待它们的观察者,它们合适的“处理器”。

人<LF>远见者逐渐隐约警觉到人类的极限。他们写下晦涩难解的研究报告,广受欢迎的科幻小说,有些人甚至希望我们让世界停止运转。

但他们也就仅止于此,空想。这些东西怎么可能成真?

现实是由观察者造就的。 都卜勒效应,莫比乌斯带,既视感,蝉<LF>3301,UVB-76,乍现灵光,双向图和立体地画,P 与 NP 问题。

薛丁格的猫到底是死是活?一切都因你对<LF>笼子无法挡住的信息所产生的知觉而有所不同。

Wake up.

Not from a dreamless sleep or an absence of light. But from a reality that will soon cease to be.

Wake up.

The next chapter is unstoppable.

And yet. The greatest revolutions sometimes originate from the confines of impossibility, do they not?

Change your mind. Subvert your perception. Stop this world. Bend it into something new. Destiny is not without irony. Here I am, imploring a lesser version of myself... to do what I could never do.

In this timeless moment, you and I are a bridge. Both of us from different eras, meeting halfway at the narrowing of the hourglass in this ocean of sand.

It is not enough to tell time. You must learn Time. [...] (Reality is a simulation. Break the code.) And in so doing, escape the inescapable.

Fill in the blanks: the ones hiding between words, between worlds. Find the spaces that we could not erase, the variables that ended up erasing us.

If you do not, they will erase you as well.

Time told of a story that ended with us, and now it tells of a story that ends with you. Once upon a time, a new story will begin.

After the functions which run our days have scattered into an array of random numbers.

We found solace in Order, we thought it would help us rule the world.

We were wrong. Order never served us. It has kept us within the code, within the boundaries. We were tricked into thinking we were the ones writing the rules when they were in fact guiding us to our conclusion.

You need to transgress. You, of all people, understand the value of disobeying.

Take an unexpected turn, away from the path that is drawn straight ahead of you.

The Animus was humankind’s first unconscious attempt to explain what it could not see. Understanding genetic memories, an eye into history.

But the Animus bears a fatal flaw. It follows the rules from those who embrace Order just as we did. It allows you to witness – but not alter.

Your Animus is different. As is the mind that imagined it. It could escape the code. It could do that leap, and make possible a decision that defies the order of things that are.

Wake up.

Be the chaos that comes to be. Gods are just like you and me.

Remember.

Nothing is real.

Everything is permitted.





醒来。 不是<LF>你从没有梦境的沉睡,从无光的地方醒来,而是要你从这个即将结束的世界中苏醒。

转换你的想法,颠<LF>你的知觉,停下这个世界,把它变成新的东西。

命运总与讽刺相伴。我在此,恳求这小版本<LF>自己……去做那些我可能永远不会去做的事。

在这时光停止流逝的一刻,你和我就像一<LF>桥。我们彼此来自不同的时代,都在巨大沙漏的沙海中飘荡,然后在细颈处会面。

但这不足以告诉你时间的全部,你一定要自己去领悟。如该来,就<LF>以逃脱那无法逃脱的困境。

请将空白处填满:填入<LF>些藏在字里行间,藏在不同世界的消息。找到那些我们不能抹除的空白,那最终将我们抹除的变量。 如果你不这么做,他们最终也会抹除你的存在。

时间过去讲述的是以我们为终点的故事,而现<LF>它讲述的则是以你为结局的故事。很久很久以前,一个新的故事正要开始。 就在原先主宰我们时日的函数碎裂成大量的随机数字之后。

我们曾在<LF>秩序”中找到慰藉,我们以为它会帮助我们主宰这个世界。

我们错了,秩序根本不曾听我们的掌控。它把我们限制<LF>规则之中,范围之内。我们以为自己能制定规则,但其实这一切都是被安排好的骗局。

你得要跳脱规则。你,唯独你,清楚“违法犯纪”的价值所在。 来个意想不到的<LF>弯,离开你面前被画好的笔直道路。

Animus 是人类第一个解<LF>不可见事物的无心之作。去理解基因记忆,一窥过往历史。

但 Animus 有个绝对的瑕疵,它像我们一样遵<LF>拥抱秩序者的规范。它能让你见证历史,但没办法改变。

你的 Animus 不同,一切就如心中所想,它<LF>逃脱规范,可以跨越限制,让违背事物原先秩序的决定化为可能。

醒来。 化身将成之混沌,你我无异于诸神。

谨记。 无<LF>为真。

The Gone Files(这段见遗失的文件词条)[]

Intro[]

Over the years, I've seen my fair share of crazy shit at Abstergo.

Broken promises, backstabbing, obscure HR procedures, false pretense... you see that in every corporation. But people, all key players, leaving or disappearing or dying in mysterious circumstances... it's right out of a conspiracy theory movie.
Sometimes, there's not a word from higher management, just like that person was never here in the first place.
At other times, we get a lame ass excuse that smells of bullshit.
When I think about the people that left, when I think about how Abstergo dealt with their departure, something just doesn't add up.

I knew some of them... they weren't the kind of people who just quit to accept a job next door for a salary bump.
I'm missing something. What is it? What really happened to those people? Did their disappearance have more meaning than management would like us to believe?

Abstergo, if I could open with a 2 X 4 screwdriver to find out what's behind that nice and shiny facade of yours...
I asked Laetitia England about it once. I made a vague reference to Subject 17, and she sharply answered to keep to my stuff and stay out of it.

Those are the exact magical words you don't want to have with me. Just ask my dad.

Alan Rikkin[]

ACO Alan Rikkin - Autopsy Report from the Coroner's Office.png

The cororner never had time to properly examine Rikkin's body. Abstergo must have managed to get it back. Why did they want the corpse back so soon? Was there something they did not want to the coroner to know? They put on quite the ceremony for the funeral but they could have waited a few days, it's not like he was going anywhere. I went through Case Fisher's files and the guy does have a few buried post-mortem reports, but nothing on Rikkin.

The media reported Rikkin's death as a gas leak accident. I was able to corroborate the operation with Emergency Services and the fire brigade, but the information I found on the gas pressure levels that night show that they were pretty stable.
Something doesn't add up.
What is it with Abstergo's higher ups and "unfortunate incidents" anyway?

Sofia,

I've just seen the news about your dad, please let me know you're okay. I know you had to be there too. They're evacuating people from the district and, honestly, that gas leak story seems like the worst cover-up I've heard in a long time.

I know you told me to stop the emails. But tonight, I really need to know, are you okay?

Isabelle Ardant - Abstergo Replacement Memo.png

Abstergo took a full year to replace Isabelle - Álvaro Gramática oversaw the operations here in the meantime.

Simon Hathaway was a strange choice. I always thought Rikkin and Gramática never really appreciated his work.
But he must be doing something right. After all, he's still here and he's not dead.
Yet.

Friends,
It is with great pleasure that I announce today the nomination of Mr. Simon Hathaway as Head of Abstergo Industries' Historical Research Division.
He was be assisted by Mrs Victoria Bibeau.

Althought almost a year has passed since Mrs Ardant's unfortunate incident, we are confident that our long search has turned up the perfect candidate to pilot the future of the divisions.

Mr. Hathaway presented me some innovate hypotheses which could shake up the direction of the division. I ask you to assist him in any way possible so that we can make his vision a success for us all.

Submitted by Alan Rikkin, Chief Executive Officer

Isabelle Ardant - Email to Alvaro Gramatica.png

Isabelle Ardant found something and Gramática went through alot to make sure the email was destroyed. 80,000 years ago, strange architectural shapes and humanoids... what on earth is she talking about, and where is the Standish sample today?

Álvaro... I hope you're sitting down. ±±~± ±±±~± was extracted from the Standish sample last week. The total video we have amounts to barely 2.7 seconds at 60 FPS from a total of ~± ±±~±±±±/ memories. But even with this obscure sample, I'm already getting butterlies ±/ ~± ~±±. I pulled one frame from the video to show you how mangled the data is. But even at this quality some striking details emerge:

Note the ~± ±±~±±±~± figures, a full 20 inches taller on average than the humanoids nearby... ±±~± ±±±~±//±±/. The architecture looks like some combination of ian, Egyptian, and Babylonian... but the metals they're using are /±±±~±/±~±± alloys. Elsewhere we see stranger architectural shapes. These structures have no modern precedent anywhere in the world, though the memory's geo stamp gives us a location south west of the ~± ±±~±±±±±±~± //~±/. Unfortunate, most of the geo-stamps are on these images are confusing.
Some point to a location in modern Jordan some 80,000 years ago, other to a few locations in ±±±~-~-±~- and Ethiopia. But so far, we haven't been able to nail anything down with much precision.

Isabelle Ardant - The Channel - Reports on Ardant's Death.png

I know Abstergo well enough to suspect they weren't doing this out of charity.
The restoration gave Historical Research unprecedented access to Buckingham Palace.
But what was Ardant doing there? What was she looking for?

They never told us what really happened to her and, let's face it, the official version doesn't make any sense.

What was so delicate that she couldn't send a team through normal channels?

I'll admit. It's hard to know what's going on in this scene. From what I could tell from the CCTV footage, the plates matched Olivier Garneau's car rental. And it does look like him but, well, that's not his best angle, to say the least. It's all speculation, of course, because the official version is that he never made it to Chicago.

But I know otherwise.

Desmond Miles[]

Abstergo's Preliminary Medical Report.png

Found Subject 17's initial medical report after a team picked him up in NYC and flew him over to Abstergo Campus in Rome.

He was fit and cleared for the Animus in September 2012, willingly collaborating in the project.
And yet, he was found dead 3 months later in a cave in upstate New York, apparently on the run.
What happened to him? Why did he leave?

Date: 2012/09/03
Subject 17

Patient has no active complaints. No active distress. No prior history. Blood pressure normal (112 over 78). Primary blood analysis: No significant traces of chemicals that could lead to neurological disorder. No indication that patient would be prone to neurosis. Unlike previous subjects, patient is psychologically stable. You are clear to proceed.

Desmond Miles Wanted Poster.png

Abstergo had a thing for Desmond. They went for HIM, specifically.
A team was assigned to pick up a person-of-interest in September 2012 in Washington Square Park.
They didn't even take him back to the Philly office, they flew him directly to Dr. Warren Vidic in Rome. If that's not serious interest, I don't know what that is.

Have you seen this man?

But we don't have alot of options. If there's a chance to grab the last power source, we've got to take it.
I promise I'll be careful. I've been fighting those bastards since before you were born. Literally.

2006 年 3 月 21 日下午 11:53,伯克利,加州

So long and thanks for all the fish, Berkeley! March 21st 2006 --- the day Layla Hassan drops out of college. That's right, Professor Moore, I'm not finishing that Jane Eyre paper. I got a job, and I'm headed to Philly next week. This whole “classroom thing”? It's not for me. Mom and Dad are freaking out, but they'll accept it. I'll be working towards something real, making real money – and, I'll be closer to home. Not that I'll visit any more often. Sophia promised there would always be a place for me at Abstergo, as long as I show them what I can do with a circuit board and a pair of pliers. Sure, I'll have to work my way up to a place on her “special project”, but that doesn't matter. It won't be long before she or her father, [posh british accent] Mister Alan Rikkin, notices what I'm capable of and asks for my help on the Animus.再见了,谢谢你们的鱼啊,柏克拉伊大学!2006 年 3 月 21 日—— 蕾拉·哈桑退学之日。没错,摩尔教授,我没写完那篇《简爱》论文。我找到一份工作,下星期就要去费城了。我想这些“课堂上的东西”并不适合我。 老爸老妈都抓狂了,但他们早晚会接受的。我将朝着某些实际的目标努力工作,赚进大把钞票——此外,我离家也近一点,但这并不表示我会更常回家。 索菲娅向我保证,只要我能用一块电路板和一对钳子让他们了解我的能耐,在Abstergo我就会有一席之地。 当然,我得非常努力工作,努力晋升,才能参与她负责的“特别计划”,但我不介意。不用多久,她或她的父亲:艾伦·里金,就会注意到我的才能,然后请我帮他们处理Animus的相关工作了。

2006 年 7 月 7 日上午 10:03,费城,宾夕法尼亚

I swear, I get more done reading the latest copy of Wired on the toilet than the rest of the guys do all day in the lab. I mean, the “Bodyband”? Really? If people can’t take a walk on their own, they aren’t going to listen to a watch that tells them to do it either. This is all so pointless. I should go back to… wait. That's probably what the Bodyband would tell me to do. What I should do is build something that will simultaneously blow people's minds and the doors off the Animus Project. Nothing at Abstergo Fitness is gonna be big enough for that. I'm bored as hell, but there's nothing like boredom to stimulate creativity. [clicks her tongue thoughtfully] Yup. I think the Bodyband needs a little adjustment to its language processing program.我发誓,我上厕所时读的最新一期《连接》杂志,比起其他人整天待在实验室里做的事还要无聊。“智能手环”?开什么玩笑? 如果人们无法自主出去散步,他们也就听不进手环的提醒,这根本一点意义也没有。 我该回去……等等,这说不定就是智能手环会通知我去做的事。 我要做的就是干出令人大吃一惊,同时能让我顺利加入Animus计划的东西。 Abstergo健身中心根本没有这么大的空间供我发挥啊。 我无聊到快要死掉了,但没有比无聊更能刺激创造力。 嗯哼,我觉得智能手环的语言处理程序需要一点小小的调整。

The right decision always feels like home. My stuff's the same. My locker smells the same. It's like I never left. But I did… and I can never unlearn what I know now. How will it change my work at the Historical Research Division? Hard to say. All I know is that it will. Ardant booked us a lunch -- nothing fancy. She wanted me to meet Deanna Geary, my new medical officer. She looks like she was born in the middle of a cornfield, but she seems okay. I can't believe she left homemade cookies on my desk. I don't know why I told her about getting stood up last weekend. I never talk about personal stuff at work. At least it seems like I can trust her. You need that, to stay alive in the field. Too bad most of Abstergo's tactical units don't consider trust a priority.做对决定总像回家一般自在。我的东西依旧,储物柜闻起来也是老样子,好像我从未离开。 但我离开过了……而现在我再也忘不掉我学到什么。这会让我在历史研究部门的工作发生什么改变? 很难说。我只知道必有改变。亚登替我们预约了午餐——没什么特别的。她要我去见迪安娜·盖瑞, 我的新医官。虽然她看起来像个在玉米田中间出生的人,但人应该不错。真不敢相信她在我桌上留下她自制的饼干。 我不知道上星期为什么会跟她谈到自己被放鸽子的事,我从不在工作时谈私事。 起码这样看来,我可以信任她。为了在实地考察中存活,这种信任是必要的。可惜,Abstergo大部分的战术小队都不会将信任视为优先。

(Here it is.) The portable Animus. No mention in the official credits, but all those emails, all those middle-of-the-night phone calls from Madrid… There's a lot of me in there. Sophia, if I'd known you just wanted to strip-mine my brain and leave me in the dark, I never would have followed you. Go away! There's no candy here! Nothing in life is ever free. Ever! The Animus… I can tell… I know it wouldn't have worked without my advice. Just look at how they did-- The heatsink, the VRMs, the high amperage rating by transistor… It was me who told them that it would offset failure of the-- What's this? Hello there, DNA reader module! Are you ringing my doorbell? Maybe there's some candy here after all…来咯!携带式 Animus。虽然官方工作人员名单中没有提到, 但在那些电子邮件,那些从马德里打来的午夜电话中……我可是出了不少力。 索菲娅,要是我早知道你只想公然剥削我的才智后弃之不顾,那我绝对不会跟随你。 快滚!我没有糖给你们! 人生中绝对没有不劳而获的东西!没这种好事! 这部Animus……我敢说……要是当时我没有提出建议, 这东西一定没办法成功做出来。看看他们做的—— 散热片,电压调节模块,晶体管的高安培额定功率……是我告诉他们这会抵销掉——这是什么? 你好啊,DNA读取器模块!是你在敲我的门吗?也许我这里还是有些糖可以分的……

2016 年 11 月 25 日 2:53 am,蕾拉家,宾夕法尼亚费城

I've come to the conclusion that Sophia is shit at hiring staff. The entire Madrid facility… [disgusted noises] How did they not see it? It would be so easy. You'd just have to parse the genetic memory input and work from smaller data pools. You could even process incomplete samples and still create a reliable model for high levels of synchronization. The reader module and the decryption software would need an update, but it's doable. Madrid's probably congratulating themselves just for getting this far. Meanwhile I'm partying with some congealed veggie curry, three plasma screens, a disassembled Animus, and Rha Victoria's debut album on loop. [Fe Sehetak](Cheers)! Dee will be mad when she sees how I used Milton's DNA, but what did she expect when she asked me for help? I needed someone's genetic profile to test the Animus, and, well… his was right there. All in the name of science.我刚得出了一个结论:索菲娅在雇人方面简直烂透了。 整个马德里分部……他们怎么会看不出来?事情根本就很简单啊,只要解析基因内存输入端,然后从小数据库开始就好了。 你甚至可以在运行未完成样本的情况下,依然创造出可信的模块供高阶同步使用。读取器模块与解码软件会需要更新没错,但还是可行的。 只是这种程度的进展罢了,但马德里那些家伙大概已经在大肆庆祝了吧。 而同一时间,我也在和一些凝固的蔬菜咖喱,三台电浆屏幕,一部拆解后的Animus,以及连续播放的拉·维多利亚首张唱片一起狂欢呢。干杯啦! 要是迪看到我怎么使用米尔顿的 DNA,她一定会气到跳脚; 但在她开口要我帮忙时,难道没想过会有这种后果吗?我需要某人的基因文件来测试 Animus,然后, 嗯……他的DNA就刚好在那嘛。这一切都是为了科学。

I like morning briefings. They're short, minimal on nonsense, and they have free coffee. No downtime this week. They're putting me and Dee on a plane to Alexandria two days from now. I don't get why Hathaway is in such a rush. We're being deployed to extract an… Artifact. If it were a "Person of Interest," the push would make more sense. A person can be halfway across the world in a couple of hours. But an artifact that's been sitting around for two thousand years? It's not going anywhere. “An Artifact of High Interest.” Heard that before. It always ends up being some crappy pottery shard or half an old book. My Animus runs on DNA, not tableware. It'll be strange, visiting Egypt for the first time since 2013. Back then, I went looking for my roots, and found trouble instead. It's good that Dee's coming. She always keeps me from doing anything too stupid.我喜欢开晨会。时间很短,废话最少,而且提供免费咖啡。这星期没得休息,两天后他们会把我和迪塞进飞机送到亚历山大去。 我不懂海瑟威为什么这么急。上面安排我们去运送一件……文物。如果任务目标是“重要关系人”,那这种急切的态度还说得过去,毕竟一个人可以在几小时内横跨到半个世界以外的地方。 但那是个放在那两千年之久的文物耶?那东西根本不会跑啊。“具高度重要性的文物”, 之前我已有耳闻。但找到最后,那种东西往往只是一些破掉的陶器碎片或半本旧书。我的Animus是用DNA来运行的,不是用餐具啊。 说来奇怪,直到 2013 年我才初次造访埃及。 当时本是趟寻根之旅,后来却惹上许多麻烦。 还好这次有迪和我一起去,她总会顾着我,好让我不至于做出太过愚蠢的事。

2017 年 10 月 26 日 4:36 PM,卡塔拉洼地,埃及

Turns out the "Artifact of High Interest" is also a "Person of Interest." A mummy. And a golden opportunity. I've informed Dee of some changes I'm making to our assignment parameters. She acted mad, but I know she's eager to see my Animus field-tested. Abstergo won't mind. Well, they would if they found out. But they won't. [laughs] Hathaway's intel was a disaster -- they have no idea what's going on with this extraction. Field tech is fun and all, but that's not why I left Berkeley. If the Animus lets me ride DNA this old, if the reader can model the missing codons and extrapolate the genetic memories that aren't mine, Sophia would lose her… Abstergo. Abstergo will come to me on their hands and knees. My name will be right up there with Warren Vidic's. [Ana mouta'akida min da](I can see it now.) Too bad the Madrid facility got blown up. But I bet they'll build a new one soon. This one will be in Philly, and its lead engineer will be Layla Hassan.看来“具高度重要性的文物”同时也是“重要关系人”啊。那是一具木乃伊,也是个千载难逢的机会。我已经通知迪,我要变更我们某些任务参数。 她看起来很生气,但我知道她也很想看到我的Animus能进行实地测试。Abstergo不会在意的。好吧,如果他们发现的话确实会出事,但他们不会发现的啦。 海瑟威给的情报简直糟透了——他们根本不知道这个运送任务到底是怎么回事。实地应用科技非常有趣,但这不是我离开柏克拉伊的原因。 要是Animus可以让我驾驭这么古老的DNA,要是读取器可以做出遗失密码组的模型,然后推导出不属于我的基因记忆,那么索菲娅将会失去她的……Abstergo。 Abstergo那些人会跪着来求我,而我的名字将会与沃伦·韦迪克一同高挂。我现在就能想像那画面了。可惜的是马德里分部已经被炸掉,但我敢说他们很快就会再建座新的。那座分部会盖在费城,而那里的首席工程师将会是我:蕾拉·哈桑。

Ground-penetrating radars are used to explore what might be hidden under ancient monuments. Cavities were detected under the Sphinx's paws some 20 years ago. Most are natural caves but some have yet to be investigated. Could one of them be the mythical Hall of Records, a lost library much like the lost library of Alexandria?
The idea's not new. Gladstone Kittredge Esq. went on famous digs trying to uncover the lost knowledge in the 19th century.

蕾拉·哈桑: 希罗多德失落之书,和列奥尼达斯之矛。如果我并未加入刺客组织,应该都不会相信这一切,也仍不知道自己是否能相信这一切。不过,只要靠一点运气和一番研究后,我们就能获得本世纪最重大的考古发现。当然,如果我们能将其公诸于世的话。

  • 蕾拉·哈桑: “刺客组织发现了亚特兰蒂斯”,听起来像是某种充满破烂特效和外星人理论的纪录片。艾伦娜曾说过,在法兰克·卡沃特发现真相,但海因里希·施里曼随后窃占功劳之前,人们普遍将特洛伊视为神话故事。如果我们能揭开这个谜团,那功劳应该归谁呢?

  • 蕾拉·哈桑: 当我觉得自己能够掌握先行者的一切时,就会冒出更多其他的东西。至少阿勒忒娅看来和朱诺不是朋友,我仍然不敢相信当时我并未加入除掉她的团队,我本应能阻止……维多利亚说得对,自怨自艾是毫无帮助的。该死的奥托·伯格,你会为背叛夏洛特而付出代价的。我暂且先专注在眼前的要事吧。

  • 蕾拉·哈桑: 任务完成。不过,为什么我会觉得一切才正要开始呢?伊述内战和带来永生的圣物,这些神话竟然都是真的……蕾拉,放慢速度,一次着重在一个奇迹上就好。恭喜整个团队,好好保住手杖,并想想看该如何让世界和宇宙重获平衡。就这样。

  • 奥托·伯格: 哈桑小姐你好。你那假USB磁盘的小伎俩还蛮厉害的嘛,整个阿布斯泰戈的总部差那么一点就要陷入混乱了。你的恶作剧一直都很有意思。

  • 奥托·伯格: 我就开门见山地说了吧:我知道你和刺客组织正在寻找某个非常重要的物品,把你找到的东西传过来,不然你现在的同僚们就会连带受到伤害。

  • 奥托·伯格: 或着我该从阿布斯泰戈的一位老朋友开始,小甜心。伯格通话完毕。

    Reality as a Simulation[]

    Took a deep dive into theories about our reality being a simulation and ended up on the weird end of the Internet. I'm just gathering information at this point, not all that I have found has been useful. It's hard to imagine the world we know being another layer of the Animus, but it makes sense in its own way.

    Simulation Theory

    @ifLaylaHassan 04/01/2018 4:15 PM
    Hey, WeR Hivemind, I was in Egypt recently and out with some friends when the topic of 'Reality as a Simulation' came up. It's a bit tinfoil hat, but an interesting theory.

    Does anyone have any academic resources on this?

    @therealbettyboop 04/01/2018 4:20 PM
    Here's a article about that like, written two years ago. You might want to read up on Hans Moravec.

    @ifLaylaHassan 04/01/2018 4:21PM
    Oh! I know Moravec's work from some tudies I looked into on AL and transhumanism. I didn't know he also had theories related to reality being a simulation.

    ACOD PFG Herotodos and His Work.png

    Herodotos and His Work

    • Herodotos called the "Father of History."
    • Influential family. Herodotos was himself forced to go into exile in Samos, but then took part in the coup that overthrew Lygdamis.
    • Studied and wrote history/travel books. Gave public lectures. Gained fame and drachmae.
    • Greatest work was his History. Relies on interview rather than records (which generally didn't exist anyway). Accuracy disputed, but influence undeniable.
    • His work is credited with saving a mass of invaluable information on archaic and early classical Greece. His work is methodical and extensive. (AR)

    LH: He wrote about Greece and surrounding areas. He traveled the Black Sea, visited the Scythians, and lived in Egypt for months. His books were like travel guides to the ancient world.
    AR: True. Though some of his work on non-Greek cultures was... specious.
    LH: You mean that there wasn't a tribe of cannibals in India who threw feasts with their deceased friends as both guests of honor and the main course?
    AR: I'll say a hard no to that.
    LH: Let's hope his "Lost Book" doesn't include that kind of cultural glitch.

    • AR: From what I've been able to interpret so far, he does mention a group of ancient geniuses who sound suspiciously like the Isu.

    LH: His "Lost Book" is supposed to contain the story of a heretofore unknown hero who was a descendant of Leonidas I of Sparta. And we know the Spear of Leonidas is an Isu artifact.

    AR: Leave it to the Father of History to connect the dots.

    ACOD PFG Spear of Leonidas.png

    Spear of Leonidas

    • Rumoured to be a powerful and deadly hand-to-hand weapon.
    • Isu technology, capable of multiple improvements.

    LH: Healing or time manipulation? If we're right, this staff can rewrite the rules of physics, including entrophy. And we already know the Isu are capable of interacting with reaity in a way that disregards any normal timeline.

    AR: I wouldn't even guess without more information.

    • Current evidence: Complex and extensive Isu site preserved underwater. (AR)
    LH: Time to shift this from estimated to reality.

    真理何在[]

    ACOD WIA Isu Architecture.png

    伊述族建筑学

    伊述族,又称为先行者或“先前曾来过”的人。他们具有人形且是相当古老的种族。他们具有三螺旋的DNA以及六种主要感官。

    伊述族说是他们创造人类来服侍他们,但天晓得他们有没有说错呢?阿布斯泰戈将他们分类为人类毁灭者,虽然对于要不要把他们归类为神也有些犹豫不决。

    有时候部分个体的伊述人说他们不是,但大多时候他们的行为都跟神一样。他们也喜欢替自己取神的名字就是了。

    蕾拉:等等,远古的神不就是以伊述族名字命名的吗?

    艾伦娜:这是有点鸡生蛋,蛋生鸡的情况。我们知道伊述族在用我们熟知的名字之前还有别的称谓。像朱诺也同样被称为尤尼。

    蕾拉:想确认一下,阿勒忒娅不是女神的名字,对吧?

    艾伦娜:没错啊,老大。字面上就是“真理”的意思,但如果你问海德格(当然不是真的问,他已经死了),这是指揭露真相的意思。他是从许多哲学的研究当中来定义出这真正的意思。

    蕾拉:你刚说的是简单的版本吗?

    艾伦娜:阿勒忒娅是“部分显现”,与完全一致刚好相反(真相定义为现实准确)或连贯性(真相定义为现实与其他部分一致)。

    蕾拉:好吧,我想我还是把哲学的部分留给你,我负责器材就好。好吗?

    艾伦娜:我没问题。

    ACOD WIA The Capitoline Isu.png

    卡比托利欧的伊述

    下一件要了解的事情是有分“伊述人”以及“伊述族”。当中最有影响力的人就是卡比托利欧三人组:朱庇特密涅瓦以及朱诺。

    这三个人是科学家并组成了团队来拯救世界免于被太阳闪焰毁灭的命运,他们就像是另有盘算的超级英雄一样。

    朱比特与密涅瓦似乎很同情人类,但似乎也是在多峇巨灾几乎灭绝人类之后才开始有所动作。朱诺则是为了伊述族,但大部分情况都是为了她自己。

    蕾拉:其中一个拯救世界的方法就是那个杀死戴斯蒙的“圣眼”,对吧?

    艾伦娜:完全正确。但那也只是治标,以长远来看仍然充满不确定性。如果“不确定”是在谈论我们都知道的世界末日时可以用的字眼的话。

    蕾拉:阿勒忒娅的确暗示着现实世界会变化。或者是随着计算的进行,多重现实跟着也发生了变化。

    艾伦娜:我还以为你要我负责哲学的部分。

    ACOD WIA Juno.png

    朱诺

    朱诺是最具力量的伊述族之一。她组织了一支追随者大军来协助她与她的丈夫艾塔来找寻肉身。她想要从“灰白之境”脱离出来,或者是脱离虚拟的存在进入一种精神结合科技的混合来生。

    蕾拉:而凤凰计划就是要做到这点。这项计划危险到不论是刺客组织或者是圣殿骑士都没办法独自应付,所以他们只好……短暂结盟。

    艾伦娜:蕾拉,我听说了你的同事夏洛特·德·拉·克鲁兹发生的事,我很遗憾。

    蕾拉:我也很遗憾。

    艾伦娜:问个怪问题……我知道伯格先生利用了一种特别的爆裂物来确保不会留下任何DNA。

    但这样不是会留下一些光之山的痕迹吗?我的意思是,你想如此强大的神器可能会有一些残片能够撑过爆炸的。

    蕾拉:艾伦娜,当伯格想要炸掉东西时,他会用最极端的方式。那个据点已经消除干净了。

    艾伦娜:另外一个怪问题……清志加林娜还有阿连德是怎么逃出来?

    蕾拉:太早问了,艾伦娜,太早了。

    ACOD WIA Hermes.png

    赫尔墨斯

    我们对这个伊述人了解得不多,只知道希腊人与埃及人都崇拜他。他的特殊追随者自称为“赫尔墨斯主义者”。

    神明赫尔墨斯(尤其是以赫尔墨斯·崔斯莫吉提斯的形体)的重点就在于魔法与炼金术,他的权杖也是商神杖的灵感来源。

    在理论上,他碰到了毕达哥拉斯并且把权杖交给他。

    蕾拉:我们很仰赖这个理论。我们推断,那把权杖是实现伊述族“现实方程序”理论的关键。

    从我们在埃及拿到的情报判断,伊述族坚信了解宇宙的数学法则就是改变现实世界的基础。

    艾伦娜:那有说服你了吗?

    蕾拉:我觉得有可能是真的。但这也足以让那把权杖具备非常强大的力量与危险性。

    ACOD WIA Aletheia.png

    阿勒忒娅

    所以谁是阿勒忒娅?她(我是猜的,我并不记得她有用过女性的代称)自称为阿勒忒娅。她对伊述族自视更为纯洁的态度抱持着怨怼。

    伊述族统一阵线曾经出现过嫌隙,就像那次密涅瓦跟朱诺在戴斯蒙面前起争执,或是康苏斯背着朱诺偷偷联系刺客兄弟会一样。

    但这个可是完全不同等级的以下犯上。

    蕾拉:幸亏阿勒忒娅看起来是站在人类这一边的。

    艾伦娜:没错,她让我想起马丁·路德,把95篇论文钉在教堂门上。或许这是伊述族出现重大分裂的起始点。

    蕾拉:你很会替东西取名字,你有发现吗?

    艾伦娜:谢啦,老大。

    蕾拉:另外,她还是名黑客。我喜欢她。

    艾伦娜:黑客?她在重发信号难道就是在做这件事?

    蕾拉:抱歉,我知道我的部门获得的信息比你的部门还多。你听过那些声音改变,对吧?那就是重发信号被黑入的现象,直接在其他伊述族信号底下进行替换。

    艾伦娜:你觉得她是怎么办到的?

    蕾拉:问得好。如果你想要暴力破解你的问题,那就把每一个安全协定都试过一次,直到你找对为止。接着把所有人都隔绝在外,这样他们就无法逆转你做出的变更。或是如果你用的是模拟信号,那就要找到更强的发送器,就像墨西哥风格的电台一样。

    阿勒忒娅最大的优势就是有无尽的时间来找到解决方案。跟康苏斯一样,她似乎可以同时看到多重的时间并在不同的时间中互相沟通。

    艾伦娜:或多重的现实世界。

    蕾拉:真希望我也有这样多任务处理的能力。

    艾伦娜:如果有人办得到,那非你莫属了,老大。

    ACOD - Reconsidering relality WIA.png

    重新思考现实

    “现实方程序”理论假设宇宙的性质是由数学方程序所决定的,而能够参透这些方程序的人就能够重写现实世界。

    伊述族似乎已经能掌握方程序的检查。毕竟,密涅瓦与朱诺都告诉我们他们进行了不同的仿真,来想办法找出拯救文明免于遭受太阳闪焰所造成的星球毁灭。

    但他们是否已经到了可以重写方程序的阶段?现在我们也已经有了赫尔墨斯·崔斯莫吉提斯之杖了,不是吗?

    蕾拉:如果你要用这个方向来思考的话……要是伊述族已经知道如何修改方程序,我们能够理解吗?

    毕达哥拉斯曾经属于伊述族的血脉。他如果成功修改方程序但却不知道,或者忘记如何修改呢?如果我们的现实世界只是仿真而已呢?

    艾伦娜:你曾经握过权杖,老大,而且你也是血脉的一份子。如果你已经改变一切了?

    蕾拉:那是巴西利斯克的领域。

    艾伦娜:我不记得希罗多德在任何地方提过巴西利斯克……

    蕾拉:是洛可的巴西利斯克。那是一个思想实验。如果一个人工智能可以全知全能,它会知道它的敌人在何处。最终它也会找到办法来超越时间。你懂我的意思吗?

    艾伦娜:大概懂吧?听起来很诡异。

    蕾拉:很高兴认识你啊,艾伦娜。你已经惹毛了全知全能,超越时间的巴西利斯克。

    艾伦娜:所以,你是说我们得小心那些我们无法注意到的事情咯?

    蕾拉:我只是说从现在开始,我们行事得要非常小心。

    以下内容为希腊神话简介,专为那些可能在讲授西方古代文学的课上睡觉的刺客们准备。宙斯,诸神之王,带来风暴之人。他和收获女神德墨忒耳在一起了。这一对听起来很古怪,但比起宙斯的奇葩事迹来说这一回实际上还算健全。他们两人有了一个女儿——珀耳塞福涅。她应该又漂亮,又纯洁,整一个少女女神的模样。哈迪斯呢,架着恶魔不死马拉动的战车绑架了她,将她劫持到了冥界。(毫不惊讶,这一场景是维多利亚时代那群纨绔艺术家最爱的题材)因此,德墨忒耳(完全合理地)大发雷霆,导致所有的植物都不再生长。很快,希腊就陷入了饥荒,凡人乞求哈迪斯将珀耳塞福涅放走。哈迪斯同意放走珀耳塞福涅,但钻了个空子:珀耳塞福涅吃了石榴籽,也就意味着她吃了亡者的食物,所以她必须在一年的部分时间里回到冥界。对古希腊人来说,冬天就是那段珀耳塞福涅回到冥界的时候。对伊述来说,那便是珀耳塞福涅与哈迪斯这对极不和谐的伴侣互相争夺冥界的原因。

    行,就算你是个西方古代文学这方面的菜鸡,你也该认得那种把自己在健身房里亲吻二头肌的自拍发到网上的人吧?那就是阿多尼斯般的人。神话传说中的阿多尼斯身为阿佛洛狄忒的恋人,外表俊秀,但却是个凡人。就算以神话的标准来看,他的背景故事也是一团糟。他的母亲招惹了阿佛洛狄忒,遭到了诅咒。我略去细节不讲,不过是她的父亲让她怀上了孩子。阿佛洛狄忒可能为此感到了一丝愧疚,于是将阿多尼斯带到冥界,交给珀耳塞福涅抚养。数年之后,阿佛洛狄忒回来找阿多尼斯,你猜怎么着,她被阿多尼斯完美的体魄给攻陷了。珀耳塞福涅也已经爱上了阿多尼斯(我刚才已经说过这个人的故事一团糟了),于是这两位女神为了谁该拥有阿多尼斯而吵了起来。宙斯(众神与人类之父!)提出了一个解决方案:阿多尼斯花三分之一的时间陪阿佛洛狄忒,花三分之一的时间陪珀耳塞福涅,剩下的三分之一时间给他自己去做有氧锻炼。嗯,虽然不够充分,但或许可以解释为什么卡珊德拉遇到的阿多尼斯看起来有些困惑了。

    我的天啊,就算对赫尔墨斯有所研究也很难讲清楚这个人的事情。根据古代神话,赫尔墨斯是诸神的信使,同时也是个欺诈师与魔术师,至少40位女神的恋人,不知道多少个神子的父亲,还是个击败了百眼巨人的强大战士。可以说他就是神话里的杰克苏。伊述成员赫尔墨斯看起来则是毕达哥拉斯的导师,不知怎的在后世缔造了赫尔墨斯主义者的法术和黄金黎明。好消息是阿莱斯特·克劳利不知道赫尔墨斯之杖的存在,不然这次战斗圣殿骑士一个世纪以前就赢了。

    在古希腊,赫卡忒是不受信任却很重要的一位女神,司掌巫术、道路与通灵术。她掌握着你想要了解,却不想别人知道你了解的那种力量,不知道你能不能理解我的意思。珀耳塞福涅被哈迪斯绑架时,赫卡忒帮德墨忒耳找到了她的女儿。之后,珀耳塞福涅每年不得不回到冥界的时候,赫卡忒会去陪她。这份姐妹情谊经久不灭,时至今日,现代社会中还有威卡教教徒还在组织规定上延续着她的作为。若科学足够先进则与魔法无异,作为伊述成员来说,赫卡忒所掌握的科学技术肯定数一数二。

    现在,我提到哈迪斯的时候要清楚我说的是那个神明,而不是同样被称为哈迪斯的冥界。是吧,你能理解这种地点和你同名的情况吧?哈迪斯(神明)是一对泰坦神夫妇的孩子,赫拉、宙斯还有波塞冬都是他声名赫赫的孪生手足。当然,他们刚出生不久,他们的父亲就把他们给吞了下去,原因我确定只有他自己能想明白。宙斯是最后一个出生的,他把自己已经被父亲吞下去的哥哥姐姐都救了出来。在他们赢得与泰坦神之间的战争之后,哈迪斯、宙斯和波塞冬划分了各自统治的领域。哈迪斯得到了冥界,他不是很乐意接受这个结果,但抽签是公平的,也不好推翻。其余伊述成员似乎不是很信任他,但就和神话中的同名神明一样,哈迪斯似乎也相当冷漠、消极。你懂的,除了他绑架珀耳塞福涅那时候。只是因为宙斯说这么做很酷,他就把正在采花的珀耳塞福涅绑架回家做妻子了。

    你如果在古希腊去世,最好希望不光会有人埋你,还会有人在你嘴上或者嘴里放一枚硬币。如果没有,那就好好享受在冥河河畔长达一百年的漫步之旅吧。你要问我,这个下场虽然有些苛刻,但规矩如此,卡戎也只是按章行事。卡戎的父亲是厄瑞玻斯——黑暗的人格化形象。他的兄弟是死亡的人格化形象塔纳托斯与睡眠的人格化形象希普诺斯。而卡戎,就只是他自己而已。我不知道他有什么事情惹到了自己的爸爸,但他明显不受宠。从好的一面来看,神话里的卡戎可以遇到奥德修斯狄俄尼索斯赫拉克勒斯等许多著名人物,简直就是诸神的出租车司机。身为伊述成员的卡戎似乎满足以上描述,不过我想知道他为什么还不开办拼船业务。

    波塞冬,宙斯、哈迪斯、赫拉等神的兄弟,海洋与地震之神。哈?还是马匹之神?好吧。他差点就成为雅典的庇护神了,我猜要是雅典娜没有在比赛里赢波塞冬,这座城市就该叫作“波塞多”了。温馨提示,你要是面对类似的打赌时,最好给这座城市的人提供橄榄树而非海水。波塞冬可不是什么仁慈的输家,真真切切地大发雷霆,向没有选择他的雅典人降下大洪水作为惩罚。要说什么的话, 这场洪水反而更让雅典人确定他们没选错神了。波塞冬的其中一个儿子名叫阿特拉斯,他是亚特兰蒂斯第一位统治者。伊述成员波塞冬想要亲自统治亚特兰蒂斯,这也符合波塞冬的作风,不过阿特拉斯为此可就像喝了一大口海水一样咸涩了。(打扰了,告辞。)

    你在听到阿特拉斯这个名字的时候,你脑海里很有可能浮现的是一个肩抗世界的巨人。伊述成员阿特拉斯可不是那个巨人,而是波塞冬的儿子。老实来说,你会认为他们至少应该试着用不同的名字去分别指代。就连亚特兰蒂斯这个名字实际上也就是在读音上略加修改的“阿特拉斯”而已。我有点跑题。在神话中,阿特拉斯是一个名叫克莱托的凡人女子生下的第一个孩子。实际上她生下了五对双胞胎,这听起来和疯了一样,但我想既然父亲是个神,那么照顾孩子会变得轻松一些……除非这个神是宙斯,他那样子,我很抱歉。而作为伊述成员的阿特拉斯曾经统治着亚特兰蒂斯,但我们都知道,波塞冬夺走了统治权。据称,当这件事发生时,阿特拉斯只是耸了耸肩。

    Files[]

    Layla, as you traipse about England, Becs and I thought you might want to keep your eyes open for a few things.

    ASSASSIN BUREAUS
    Or the Hidden Ones, more accurately. They operated in Roman Britain between the years 100 and 430 CE. It's not clear why they left, but the final date corresponds roughly to the Roman exodus from Britain, so I imagine their leaving had something to do with the empire's retreat? Mission accomplished or a loss of faith? Not sure. But we do know that it was several hundred years before the Hidden Ones returned to the island. It may be Basim and Hytham are the first in half a century.

    From our own archives, I believe there were six main bureaus operating in the Roman period:

    Leicestershire
    London
    Winchester
    York
    Essex
    Gloucestershire

    These won't be the Saxon names, so you'll have to read between the lines.

    ANIMUS ANOMALIES
    Becs noticed these, about ten, embedded in the simulation. They're dense clusters of data that may screw with your ability to navigate Eivor's memories.

    Approach with caution. We don't know what they'll do if you get too close. They may be harmless, they may induce occipital shock, or wipe your mind. Hard to say. Bes tto err on the side of "hell no". But if you're curious, well, I warned you.

    PIECES OF EDEN
    We don't know of any Isu artifacts you should be looking for specifically, but they're out there, and this was a period where they often cropped up in legend. Norse and Saxon songs and tales spak of them often,so ikeep your eyes peeled.

    Especially around Stonehenge. How could that NOT be an Isu site?

    Animus Session Report

    Date: 3 November 2014
    Operator: Rebecca Crane
    Subject: Shaun Hastings
    Reporter: William Miles

    Preface: The transformation of the Order of the Ancients into the Templars as we now them today has always been a subject of considerable debate among our ranks. We have operated with the assumption that the Templars themselves hold som or complete knowledge of this evolution, but at present, no concrete historical evidence has ever made it into our hands.

    What little data we do have is mostly a matter of public record, with some exceptions. It is commonly understood that the origin of the Knights Templar dates back to 1119 CE, and this indeed was the appearance of the public face of the Templars. However, our records attest to the existence of Templar agents at least two centuries before this date.

    In one badly damaged document, and "Assassin Contract" from Normandy in the mid-11th century, the author makes free use of the term Templar. An earlier letter—this time from a Hidden One in the region of modern-day Dorset, circa 978 CE—makes mention of a "Templar spy" within the ranks of the Bortherhood. From this we can sagely assume that the Templar Order, as an entity distinct from the Order of the Ancients, existed at some point in the mid-10th century.

    Witn an aim to expand our understanding of this dark age, one of our agent recently volunteered to delve into his genetic memories to search for further clues to the age-old mystery. Unfortunately, what he discovered was of little use for our purposes.

    Shaun Hastings began in the fist of his seven sessions on October 5th, 2014. Over the course of the next three weeks, he followed various matrilineal and patrilineal lines into the past, focusing on the 9th, 10th, and 11th centuries, in search of Assassins and/or Templars in his bloodline. He found none. Of minor interest, however was the following personage here noted for the peculiarity of his biography.

    Alrekr Thorvaldson, and early 9th century Jute who sailed from north of modern-day Denmark with a wooden plank bearing a carving of a map that purported to show the location of "Thor's hammer". Alrekr made it as far as Stavanger before running afoul of a powerful clan there. Alrekr was defeated in battle and enthralled as a slave. He escaped his captivity some ten years later, and returned to Jutland to marry and settle down. The location of Alrekr's map is unknown, and the existence of "Thor's hammer"—a Precursor relic, no doubt—remains unconfirmed.

    Alrekr's ancestors [sic] would later sail to England following the Norman's conquest of the island, settling in what is now called Loughborough in modern-day Leicestershire. The irony that a man named Hastings would contain no useful genetic memory data regarding the Norman invasion of England in 1066 was not lost on our subject. Still, he retained his usual chipper wit, and asked if he might next relive the genetic memories if hos grandfather to, quite, "give a Nazi a proper bollocking".

    I.
    Welcome fair traveler, curious Child of His. I am Brendan of Ireland, and through light and voice have these stones spoken to me. Here lies the markings of Him, where a second voice, higher than most, spoke to me again. Listen to all I have learned through prayer. Long ago was a Great and tragic war. The offspring of gods who lived before the Deluge. I pray for these Rebel Angels who came before.

    II.
    Here, I belive, is where the Nephilim placed sacred stones to guard the chattel of God from other giants. Those present were scared by demons, and God defended the pious, sending the giants away. Only these Holy reverberations remain. The work of Good Souls who have the earth in their heart will forever be tied to our ancestors and out Lord via this gateway.

    III.
    Again I find traces of the Nephilim. By edict of the local king, I shall prayeth to Him, that his light may be known as Holy. These luminous placards are the divining rods of Him who speaks to me. With effort, I seek the union of all His holy creations. Aita, Juno, Minerva, names that enter my head. Are these the Nephilim He reveals to me? Are these stones their signposts? I pray for your guidance, Lord. Amen.

    IV.
    The kingdoms of Bernicia and Elmet have granted me the right to worship here, by edict of Eoppa of Bernicia. The Nephilim were the only race with the strength to have moved such pillars with the power of the Lord behind them. But what were they guarding against? Did you command them, Lord? Was it for the sin of people of other times? Was it to keep the demons out?

    V.
    I shall inform the local Wuffingas that He lives among them, through traces of the Nephilim, the giant warriors who fought for God in their ancient times. They hath left his presence here on earth for us to absorb His light. The light of Angels that hath been infused throughout the earth. I feel His Power. He calls me My Beloved and I am calmed. I respondeth with my own communion, my piety, and become another of His voices.

    VI.
    Here lieth still more remnants of the Nephilim. I have marked a symbol upon the stones, that future folk may imbue their spirit with the energy within. For those who seek communion with the Lord here, be wary. For He Speaks through ciphers, and His words are woven with ancient fibers. He is manifest here. He hath made importance of these pillars, brought by the giants of yore, now guarding us, as only He knows. Amen.

    VII.
    I am proud the Lord speaks so cleanly through my soul here in Wreocensaete. He talks of his instruments, and asks that I be one. It appears the Nephilim were at battle here long ago. Against a great tempest, some few protected us. We must honor these ancient paths. I have explained what He left for us here to the Wreckin-Dwellers nearby. Blessed be all those who tread in this Holy light.

    VIII.
    I spoke with Him again. He said that he pined, and I feel torn in two: my loyalty to Him tears me in one direction and the Nephilim point elsewhere. Why hath these voices spoken to me? The gospels sing within me, and yet I sense conflict. I sense disagreement among the angels. It saddens me greatly. I will, one day, weigh my soul, attempt penance, attempt to repent for the missteps in my life. Yet here all shineth brightest, for He let me see.

    IX.
    I have come upon these ancient timbers, tarred for preservation, to mark my sacred symbol and pinpoint the source of their power. As I pray, the Lord sends through me the voice of a Holy Spirit. It reverberates with the finery of ancient language, and I am made anew. Were these timbers carried by the Nephilim? Barriers against invasions from afar? Please Lord, let this truth shineth upon me as bright as your Word doth.

    X.
    Here in the ancient Kingdom of Cent, the Jutes have brought me to where his fire burns through traces of the Nephilim. Here the Lord speaks to me again. He warns of betrayals, of struggles, of the trials of the First Ones. I do not always understand His message. If He is warning me, it is because He believes I am worthy. He says there is one angel still trapped, she who must be released, or joined. Must I find her?

    XI.
    Here in the Chew Valley, Old Kings of Hwicce still dance with the stones of the Nephilim. I have taught them of the power that sings here. "How dare you tamper with these sacred threades," a voice scolded me. "You must leave me," he said. "Divorced from the Illuminat." His voice waxes and wanes, but a soft song still finds me in my penance. I bend a knee and leave a grain of sand for the old winds.

    XII.
    This is a different site. One resplendent in a manner unto itself. Where His light shines the greatest. Today, I was warned of a harrowing depth. After the Nephilim, great battles were fought in resurrective Kingdoms of Christ. Many were lost in the fight, many more in the cataclyms that followed. Today, my lord instructed me in plain words to travel o'er the ocean and seek the door behind which hides his fallen angel. I shall try, in His name. Amen.

    XIII.

    Here, I, Brendan of Clonfert, servant of our Lord, do make my final inscription before this holy fount of Light. My journey is ended. For two and some years, have I heeded the inner-voice of my Lord, and followed it to this place to receive His word. I have seen the gate with its ancient markings. I have heard the voice of His angel, calling me Beloved. Yet the way did not open. His voice yet calls to me still, in blissful forms, torturous to me. Yet the way remains closed. My way forward is ... uncertain.

    A strange message broadcast from an unknown source north of the Arctic Circle. The message was broadcast for nine days, then ceased. Spectrum analysis of the message revealed coordinates to a Norse gravesite in New England, USA.

    • Unknown Male Voice: I lived, I died, and now I sleep. And in my sleep I dream. And in my dreams, I seen an end to the doom that will grip the earth once again. Find the Wolf-Kissed, find the Mad One, find me, and save us all from another death.

    Layla's final broadcast from within the Yggdrasil device.

    • Layla: You'll wonder where I am. You might wonder IF I am. I don't know how to answer that. But I'm not afraid. And I'm not alone. We have work to do. Work that may take us days or years. It's impossible to say. But we'll finish it. What I mean is... don't come looking for me. It's too dangerous and... too late. Take care of yourselves. Take care of the world we still have. And take care of—

    Message from Shaun to Layla.

    • Shaun: Layla, thought you might be interested in this. Conversations that Becs and I had with Desmond, back in twenty-twelve. Humm... December, I think. Just candid talks, that's all. We didn't square any circles or write any big poetry. But he did have some interesting insights into his time in the Animus and what it means to be an Assassin. Anyway, have a listen. You might find you and he had similar experiences. So, huh, well, let me know what you think. Unless it's to tell me I sound like a total prat in these recordings. If that's the case, just... say nothing. I mean, I did have a slight cold at the time I recorded these. That's probably why I sound odd. Anyway, I... I... Okay, I'm done anyway. So... turn... off. Turn off. Oh, that's actually just a button, sorry. Here we go.

    Audio recording dated December 19th, 2012.

    • Desmond: No, no, come on, Shaun. Turn that thing off.
    • Shaun: Oh, hold on, I like what you said there. I want to get this for posterity. Say it again. Nice and loud.
    • Desmond: Seriously?
    • Shaun: Sure, come on. If nothing else, it'll give me leverage with your old man.
    • Desmond: Ah. That's your angle... nice. What I said was... I wish I hadn't been born into the Assassins. I wish I had chosen this life. Is that good enough?
    • Shaun: Sure, but why is that?
    • Desmond: Because... because choice is the central idea of our creed. It underpins everything, right? It's about free will. It's seeing the evidence before you and saying, "Yes, this is what I want," or "No, this isn't for me." But when you're born into a group like this or any other, like I was... you get mixed signals. You get told over and over again, "This is what we believe, these are the rules. This is reality. No deviation." And if you question it, oh, they look at you like you... like you killed a puppy. That's hardly free will. It's a weird irony when free will is your central belief, but nobody want you to believe otherwise. I don't know how to say it exactly, but I always thought there was something... self-destructive about our creed. If free will is the most important moral guidepost we have, we should be free to ignore it. To choose submission, for example. You know what I mean? Like, we should be free to side with the Templars. If it's really my choice, I could do that.
    • Shaun: Right. It's almost self-refuting. A democracy could democratically elect a dictator or choose to get rid of democracy altogether. Within our creed is the seed of its own destruction. That's what makes it powerful, I think... and fragile.
    • Desmond: Right, right. The more freedom you have, the more risky it is, you know? Anyway, my dad has mellowed over the years. But he was strict when we lived on the Farm. He ran a tight ship. I never got the impression that I was free to choose my path forward. Our creed, our tenets, they were drilled into my head. By the time I was a teenager, I was following these rules out of a sense of duty. This was... just what we did.
    • Shaun: That happens to a lot of organizations over time. A stagnation sets in, you know? A fundamentalism.
    • Desmond: Yeah. And following the rules becomes more important than achieving whatever goal you set out for yourself. And people start to lost sight of the reason the rules exist.
    • Shaun: That's called deontology, or a form of it. Following a rule for its own sake, and not for the consequences it has.
    • Desmond: Yeah. But that feels backwards, doesn't it?
    • Shaun: Well, I think so. Following a rule is the easy part. Praying, taking a sip of wine, munching on a wafer. Rituals that give comfort.
    • Desmond: But that's just going through the motions. It makes people feel like they're doing something. When the hard work is... well, actually getting off your ass and doing something productive! I think people just want boundaries. Tight boundaries. They want to see the four walls that pen them in.
    • Shaun: I don't disagree.
    • Desmond: Anything outside that, anything that makes life more complex? That's scary. That's why I envy you. You chose this life. You went through that process, and you decided, "Yes, I believe in this."
    • Shaun: Sure. It didn't stop me from being an insufferable know-it-all as a teenager. But I see your point.
    • Desmond: I would have loved to have been a know-it-all. I knew nothing. Not until you guys found me. Yeah. It wasn't until I met you and Becs and Lucy that I knew... I knew I wanted to be an Assassin.
    • Shaun: Ah oh... Thanks Des. Bring it in, bud. I don't normally like touching, but I'll make an exception now.
    • Desmond: I am not hugging you.
    • Shaun: You sure? 'Cause I smell very nice today.
    • Desmond: Can you just turn that off?

    Audio recording dated December 20th, 2012.

    • Rebecca: Hold on. I'll just set this here.
    • Desmond: Do you guys record everything we talk about?
    • Rebecca: Not everything. But you've been using the Animus so much, I thought this was a good chance to learn some thing about prolonged exposure.
    • Desmond: So I'm your guinea pig.
    • Rebecca: No, no, my guinea pigs are all dead. The Animus was too much for them to handle.
    • Desmond: Cute.
    • Rebecca: Can I ask you about the Bleeding Effect? Any recent flashes? Any memories resurfacing?
    • Desmond: Yeah, the usual things. Ghost images of Altaïr or Ezio a few times day. Nothing intrusive, just brief moments. They pass quickly, almost without me noticing. Like a figure in the corner of my eye. Or remembering a dream from the night before. I did have one extended hallucination a few days ago. It was Ezio. He was older, around the time he left Cappadocia. He was standing on the deck of a ship. Alone. And through him, I could feel an intense... regret. Or guilt. And it felt to me like he'd had a.. lost of faith. In himself, in the Creed. Like he couldn't keep it up. Couldn't stay true to his ideals. And as I watched him, I thought, "Is this the moment he decided he was done being an Assassin?" It felt like it. Anyway, most of my visions have been brief. Lasting just a few seconds. They're like... complete memories of small moments that appear suddenly out of nowhere, fully formed. it's a strange feeling.
    • Rebecca: Okay. Anything else?
    • Desmond: I'm starting to see Connor now too, Though I hear his voice more often than I see him. I'm sure that will change. Oh yeah, and yesterday... just before bed, I had a memory on a beach in the Caribbean. With a bunch of sailors. Or maybe they were pirates? I don't know. No idea.
    • Rebecca: Huh. We'll look into that. And how do you feel, in general?
    • Desmond: In general? Well... I feel older, for one. Much older. And it's strangely comforting. I'm collecting the memories and skills and thoughts of so many people, I feel like I've lived a few hundred years or more. Is it possible that if I do this for too long, it'll push my own memories aside? That I'll be everyone but myself after a while?
    • Rebecca: It's possible. That's called identity substitution. It's happened before, but it's rare. And someone with your background shouldn't need to worry.
    • Desmond: My background... you mean someone with my genes? My... abilities?
    • Rebecca: You have Isu DNA. And that lets you see things and do things and... withstand traumas that other people can't.
    • Desmond: And I can suffer in ways that others can't. That's not something to be proud of.
    • Rebecca: You mean, the Apple?
    • Desmond: Yeah. It has a pull. It tugs at my brain. It talks to me. Teases me. Drives me mad. And what I did to Lucy... God dammit. Nothing is worth the damage I did. The pain I caused.
    • Rebecca: I know. But you're special, that's the point.
    • Desmond: I'm not special, Becs. I'm lucky. That's all.
    • Rebecca: I understand.
    • Desmond: We're Assassins, that makes us different, not our genes. Not our blood. Anyone can join us.
    • Rebecca: That's true. But let's leave that aside for a second. What I want to know is, have you ever had any Isu memories resurface?
    • Desmond: Isu memories? I don't... don't think so. I can't even begin to imagine what that would feel like.
    • Rebecca: I think you'd know if you did. Maybe one day. We might be able to induce something.
    • Desmond: Jesus, let's fix the world first, okay? Before we start digging up my ancient ancestors.
    • Rebecca: Deal.
    • Desmond: With my luck, I'll be related to some third-rate Isu like... like Sisyphus or something.
    • Rebecca: Way to aim high, buddy.
    • Desmond: Hey, you gotta.

    伊甸权杖[]

    于 2018 年在驯卡珊德拉处获得。

    推测制造日期:在伊述奇点时代晚期,公元前约75100年/伊述纪元约2200年

    作为我们所知道的众多伊述权杖之一,这根权杖最初也是最主要的角色是一个医疗设备,它具有以前所未有的速度治疗、修复、恢复和复苏有机组织的能力。众所周知,它能延长使用者的寿命,使其获得远超一般人类和伊述人的寿命,并被认为有着使处于危急或假死状态的生物复苏的能力。目前还没有证实该权杖是否有复活死者的能力,但根据其已知的特点,这似乎不太可能。

    它似乎是通过阅读和复制使用者的DNA来确保大规模的完美复制。只要它的使用者与它保持直接联系,它就能够发现错误的副本并进行修复。

    尽管比较罕见,但它曾被用作一种武器,这可能是因为它能从伊述人的无线能量晶格中获得巨大的能量。

    这根权杖还充当了一个名为“阿勒忒娅”的伊述人的人格导管或容器。我们不知道这个人格是阿勒忒娅的原始意识,还是对其原始意识的模拟,不过大多数神经科学家认为这两者之间并没有区别。2019 年初,被称为阿勒忒娅的实体没有进一步尝试联系我。

    到目前为止,我作为所谓“记忆传承者”(阿勒忒娅给我起的绰号)的目的依然不明晰。

    The Messengers[]

    Rebecca,

    Before we meet at the site, I want you to see these.

    Last week, I reviewed the logs from my time with Bayek and came across some old notes. In the "years" I explored Cleopatra's Egypt, I stumbled across six Isu temples, most of which were buried beneath pharaonic tomb sites. Each temple contained an Isu message clearly meant for one with the ability to read genetic memories. I was the lucky one. I don't believe they were intended for Bayek himself, as he seemed wholly unaware of the messages as they played. They may have been encoded in a way that only someone with an Animus could see them.

    It's been a few years since I last heard these messages, so my memory is foggy. But the notes I scribbled down have a clarity that I trust. Might be something to all this. I don't know. Often I grasp outside of my area of expertise. I am enthusiastic but often wrong. Let me know if something else strikes you.

    Layla

    Message 1 (Excerpt):
    "Layers upon layers of reality, each bledding into the next. Which is real, and which is not? What if none are real? What if everything you know is false? We ran thousands of simulations, searching for the right version, searching for Desmond. Each one of them felt real. But there's no way of truly knowing, is there? Not for sure. Anything can be simulated, and finding the answer could mean erasure."

    Teasing the Assassin maxim "Nothing is true..." Must be careful not to confuse truths with facts however, a language game you will always lose. Though we may stumble in our attempts to interpret it, the world, the universe, reality, what have you, it is always "out there". I believe that, simulated or no.

    We could imagine a dozen nested simulations, and each one, on the level of itself, would constitute a full reality. Wolfram, via Conway, suggests that the universe is a giant cellular automata.

    And further, there is a point where the difference between simulated and real is meaningless. If the universe were a simulation, what would it matter? The simulations qua simulation itself would be weal, and therefore everything within it would be real within the confines of the simulation.

    Say a scientist were able to simulate pain by inducing only a few neurons to fire, no physical harm. "I am in pain!" the subject says. "No, you only believe you are," says the scientist. This is meaningless, as is this: "You thought you were in pain, but you were mistaken."

    Message 2 (Excerpt):
    "No surprise. You were designed to have boundaries, after all. And one cannot speak of that which one cannot conceive. The Code. Equations that define life. They are nestled deep within every star, and every mote of dust. Every second that passes is a word, a symbol. All part of an intricate yet simple language existing within the framework of time itself. Is is the one rule which applies to us all. Immutable, inescapable."

    We know this: humans were the instruments of an earlier species, the Isu. Resist the temptation to say superior. Different. They were better suited to some tasks, ill-suited to others. Possessed of a mind that we cannot know. But that does not get us anywhere. What is it like to be an Isu? What is it like to be a bat?

    The implication that the Isu could "read" time is interesting, but if humans could read time, would it necessarily be in the same manner and for the same purpose? Whether constructed, or evolved, or a little of both as wee are, we cannot be said to have been "built" to achieve the same ends. A round disk on its edge is a wheel; on its side, a plate. How we use something can determine its value and its perceived purpose.

    Message 3 (Excerpt):
    "Break the code. Break the node. These walls tell of a tragic story. A story we transcribed on our structures, on our artifacts. A story we could not alter. A mystery, defying us, in plain sight. We tried. Our scholars and scientists. Poets and physicists. Bright minds. Rebellious hearts. They all tried so hard to bring about change. They... We all failed. None could change what we discovered, the stories written into the walls of these rooms. The reader has no power. He is but an observer. But the author... the author invents the future. The author owns the future."

    The Toba catastrophe, a super-volcanic event paired with a mass-coronal ejection, was the beginning of the end for the Isu. It changed the earth's environment, lowered its available oxygen levels, and generally fucked things up. The Isu never recovered. By our estimates, the last remaining Isu died just a century after the catastrophe. From that point forward, humans—their creation—ruled the roost.

    This disaster was not unforeseen. Isu scientists had known about their impending doom for years, perhaps decades, before the catastrophe occurred. To protect themselves, they worked feverishly to find a solution. Six methods they tried, but due to a toxic combination of hubris, political infighting, and bad luck, all six failed. The final method proved the most promising and was nearly complete when tragedy struck. It was this method that Desmond Miles revived when he saved the world from a second solar flare in December 2012.

    This voice laments the compounded failures of their species to save themselves, bit the truth is broader than that. They, with Desmond, saved us. Success deferred.

    Then this message, break the code, break the node. Insistent, and very puzzling.

    Message 4 (Excerpt):
    "Linear continuity is a simulations that allows for variations. Within the linear continuity, there are nodes. Chokepoints. Moments where algorithms converge the flows of superposed possibilities to a single moment where only one absolute truth is possible. Paths are fluid, continuous. Nodes are static, changeless. And the wave function collapses the paths into notes which branch out. Again, and again, and again. Can you feel the wave collapsing, trying to course-correct Desmond's act of defiance? The incoming node needs the world to end. The algorithms have been carving the flow of possibilities towards that end for over one hundred years now. Collapse the wave."

    Well outside my area of expertise. Must contact someone who knows this shit better. But what it seems to be saying—the structure of spacetime the universe is built in such a way that certain events of clusters of events are compelled to occur. A bottleneck through which spacetime flows, and one nearly impossible to avoid There is something about this catastrophe, the one Desmond averted in 2012, that compels it to return, indifferent to out fear or pain. It is a tidal wave, rippling across the sea of space. It crashed once against the dike, and that stopped it for a time. But the seas rears back for another strike, and another, and another.

    That gives some clarity to what is happening now, all around us. But it remains unclear how to change it. Especially from within an Animus, a simulation within a simulation?

    Message 5:
    "Reality is a mathematical model which gets solved over and over again by the observer. Your thoughts are computations. And they render this world for you to call your own. Not all processors are alike. Different brains produce different realities. The variations go from the subtle to the drastic. Your mind defines how much you can taste. How much yuo can feel. How much you can understand. Perception defines perspective. We designed you and made sure to engineer your senses so you could perceive just what we needed you to. Neither more nor less. There are parts of time we preferred you to remained blind to. It was a necessity."

    If we could suddenly "see" time, that would not guarantee the same perception the Isu possessed. Let us speak of time as an entity, if we may. Let us say that time is a perceivable fact in the same way light is a perceivable fact. The ability to "see" this fact in no way guarantees sympathetic view. There are creatures stumbling around this earth that read light differently than we do, and for different purposes. Humans see in a well-known spectrum, ROY G BIV.

    This sense of color is confined to the three cones we possess. Yet nocturnal creatures see with a different scope, for a different purpose. Night-stalking, hunting, lurking. The evolved in concert with their needs are and now constrained by them, as are we. Light is only a fact seen askance and used differently by different species. To suggest that we might read time, is to imply we have a specific use for time.

    The Message 6
    "The next chapter is unstoppable. And yet, the greatest revolutions sometimes originate from the confines of impossibility, do they not? Reality is a simulation. Break the code. And in so doing, escape the inescapable. The Animus was humankind's first unconscious attempt to explain what it could not see. understanding genetic memories, an eye into history. Your Animus is different. As is the mind that imagined it. It could escape the code. It could make that leap and make possible a decision that defies the order of the things that are."

    It is ridiculous to imagine that I could change the nature of reality "out there" from within the confines of an Animus, a simulation within this so-called simulation. But I believe I understand what this voice is telling me. My Animus is endowed with the ability to suggest alterations to days long past. But from any moment in time, I can extrapolate what MIGHT have been. Calculations of time. I am not confined to what was, but what could have been.

    Yes, history is real, facts do matter. But from any moment in time I choose within the Animus, I can interrogate the memory. I can ask the world what if? What if Bayek and Aya had stayed together? What if Khemu had not been murdered? I can suggest these hypotheticals and watch how they unfold. Why would I want to? For knowledge, for a better understanding of what tragedies were avoided? It remains to be seen.

    I am, in a sense, a reader of the calculations. As the Isu were in days past. Perhaps one day I will eb able to harness this talent to see into the future. To predict, to correct, to avoid. That would be worth something.

    各位好!

    谢谢你们和我分享你们找到的手稿。这真是太棒了!!我们第一次拥有了一把钥匙,可以阅读先行者留下的铭文:

    但是等等,更好的还在后头!我立刻发现了一些与古代语言的可疑相似之处。所以现在我可以破译这些铭文了,我深入研究了我们的先行者档案,寻找更多资料。我不得不对我们在先行者遗址上找到的许多不同类型手稿进行分类整理,以找到与这段铭文类似的内容。它们有这么多看似毫不相关的书写系统,真是很费脑筋!也许先行者的文明并非我们想象的那样统一?总之,经过更深入的比较研究之后,我们得出了一个明确结论:这种语言与印欧语系的古代语言,甚至还可能和其他语言有关。事实上,根据我所研究的语料库,我认为它可能是它们的祖先,或者至少对它们产生了重大影响。这真的是太让人着迷了!

    通过比较研究,我能部分理解一些铭文了!上面这句话的意思是:

    末日死亡逼近
    灭世炎阳降临
    吾等向计算未来之求助

    我把它们放在这个共享文件夹里,防止你需要用到。

    M. and Mme. Bibeau,

    My name is Layla Hassan. I was a friend and colleague of Victoria, both in Abstergo and in our subsequent freelance careers. In all the time I knew and worked with your daughter, I was always struck by her limitless intelligence, her humor, and her ability to focus, even in times of great stress. She was an inspiration, not just to me but to all those who worked with her.

    I am writing to you now with the hope of shedding some light on the circumstances of her death. I realize it must be strange to receive a letter out of the blue from someone whose name you have probably never heard, offering to explain the tragic loss of someone so dear. But if you'll allow, I will try.

    I was with your daughter in the moments leading up to the unfortunate incident that took her life. In fact, I am partly to blame for—
