I still had trouble gripping the fact that I was talking to a beetle. “You sir, are a human, not many of which manage to walk the fine shores of the City of the Syllogy of the Universe. Might I inquire into the nature of your visit?” Again I was slightly confused by the beetle’s words. “Why are you here?” Dr. Lee asked. “Oh!
