ARCHITECTURE OF SUBTERRANEAN SPECIES
In general, nocturnal subterranean species have less interest in the visual world, and depend on other sensory modalities. Visual capacity is a continuum, with parasites falling somewhere in the center.
When looking up there are gateways to the surface everywhere, the traffic moves both ways: organisms come up, organisms go down. Some of those gateways are: the D.U.M.B's (Deep Underground Military Bases) Level #27 at 2,341 feet below the surface and 689 feet below sea level, the Holland Tunnel, Lincoln Tunnel, Queens Midtown Tunnel, Brooklyn Battery Tunnel, etc.
Soon the Army Corps of Engineers got involved. They were tasked to reinforce tunnels, devise new transportation systems, drill shafts, build elevators conveyors, bore channels, and erect whole camps underground. They even paved parking lots three thousand feet beneath the surface. Roadways were constructed through the mouths of caves including the Calutron, Dormitories for the unmarried specimens participating in the Manhattan District but located in Oak Ridge.
It takes long hours to get anywhere; organisms move between underground base camps and vast instant colonies further on, full of klieg lights, equipped with bioluminescence to attract mates or prey, ringed with landmines, thriving behind walls of sandbags, Jersey and Texas concrete barriers and fortified machine gun nests. There are outbreaks of tropical cave disease and claustrophobia and there is something else down below, that twin enemy of the organisms, the parasites! oh NO!.
Everywhere the descending blind specimens find evidence of primitive occupation at the deeper levels, down amidst overwhelming pressures beneath continents and beneath the sea. Of course surface inhabitants want to explore, they want to see where the tunnels lead, to go out to the edges of the ocean, earth, or by going into the Abyss?.
Now It's time to look inward!....and remove the parasites from the process!!
