Default Thought Chamber


The clean and bright space is dominated by a large tank of deep green coloured potion. Inside the potion, pearly white forms float about in a deliberate manner as they are very much alive and very much brains - the Encephalons. Though they are mostly content to stay in their tanks and swim around, if removed or provoked they can attack so extra care must be given in their handling. They are here to aid in the research and study of the impact thought has throughout the magical world.

There are a few desks (all of which have enchanted to the floor for reasons, and upon one of them, beneath a glass bell jar stands a sparse and wiry device that strongly resembles Professor Edmond Savary d'Odiard's Thought Machine. On either side the walls bear doors which implies that there are additional spaces and rooms and that this department is indeed larger than previously thought to be.

Unlike other areas of the Department of Mysteries, the Thought Chambers remains seemingly untouched save for hanging lanterns and Encephalons swimming about their tank. These all seem to be unwillingly veering in a Northern direction.

Sam was staring at the Encephalons. How long? Who knew. What was she waiting for? Perhaps for one of them to fight back against the current that they had started.. Well hadn't they? How long would these Encephalons swim around this way if not provoked to do otherwise?

Sitting with the usual silence, Sam jotted some notes and time stamped them. She decided it was time to try something. She moved a stand over to the tank with her, placing her quill and parchment on it so she could concentrate.

She decided to start with the most obvious to her... she willed them to change direction. She willed them to turn into synchronized swimmers, and to change their pattern! Come on little guys! Want to be different!

Hmm... she gave it a moment and jotted down some notes.

Strolling in from the Entry Chamber and with his billywig stinger core wand clutched firmly in his hand, Airey Flamsteed surveyed the chamber once...twice...before deciding that it was safe to proceed further inwards. He knew Forrester had a particular...fondness for the Encephalons and could perhaps provide particularly insight to the task they needed to accomplish today.

"We will be cleaning that tank today," he informed the group as he gestured towards the tank with swimming Encephalons inside. "Recent testings have shown that the solution is no longer is providing substantial nutrition to the Encephalons. Adam, Megan. I would like for you two in particularly to take samples back to be examined and modified accordingly. We may need a new hybrid plant of some variety to assist in the restorative properties of the solution, so you can add that to your list when you make the trip down to level four to inquire about resupplying our storeroom. The Encephalons have a slimy mucus excreting from their sulci that you need to collect a small sample from each." Tapping his wand along the tank, he confidently turned his back towards the team. "As for the rest of you, the Encephalons can be particularly....shall we say...enthusiastic when the lid to the tank is removed, so it will be your jobs to administer Stunning Spells so they do not bring harm to themselves or anyone else." Were his instructions clear? If not, now was the time to make their inquiries.

Slipping his outermost jacket off - which meant that he meant BUSINESS - the astronomer conjured himself a coat rack and neatly hung it on there before moving around to the back of the tank and ascending the small platform there that lead to a slide puzzle lock encoded with runes, which he began to work at until there was only one last rune to slide into place. "Ready?"

Some were gliding.

Some were bottle rolling.

Others were merely content using their long stems to wade in place.

The encephalons were on the move and if one did not know any better would almost assume that they were excited to have so many visitors at once. Should any one of the persons venture too close to the tank (as the department head had just now) a very vivid thought would appear inside their mind: let us out so we can shine.

Glad that she had her Hogwarts experience of complicated situations that could arise to lean on now Laurel silently followed in boss man Airey’s wake as they headed into the heart of the thought chamber. What she saw when she looked around the room shocked her speechless and motionless for several moments as she grasped what she was looking at. Laurel was really, sweet crystal balls in a room of tanks filled with brains or encephalons as they were called floating around in them, how weird but cool and creepy wasn’t that?

Taking her wand out from it’s holster Laurel waited silently to hear from Airey what she was supposed to help with. She was immensely glad that she wasn’t going to be the one that needed to get up close and very personal with the brains to take samples. Looking around Laurel asked directing the question to the boss as much as her colleagues. "Is there anything about the encephalons that we need to know or keep in mind when we stun them? Aside from the fact they get enthusiastic when the tank lid comes off?"

They could not see, only sense the thoughts of those in the room. Particularly of those who came closer to their tank. Their home and their prison.

One known as Sylvian took interest in the thoughts of one of the human presences [Nordic Witch] in the room and its stems almost seemed to reach out in her direction.

Before her words and full left her mouth, while they were still thoughts lingering in her mind and on their way out, it 'spoke' to her.

I am eager to get to know you....

It wasn’t as if she had any conflicting ideas as to where they’d been headed. The Thought Chamber couldn’t have been anything other than what she had walked into, yet Dylan had found herself happy for the wand in her hand. While the brains…no, Encephalons, as had been mentioned in the rather detailed instructions Mr. Flamsteed had given their group, were fascinating in some ways, the very fact they were just floating in the tank was rather creepy. They should be inside people, not floating like oddly shaped jellyfish in a tank. It was just odd. As was the idea that they could be particularly dangerous to them in a physical way, which reminded her of the explosion reference from before.

It couldn’t be too hard. Even if there were three of them supposed to be doing the Stunning. Blue eyes had flickered over in Laurel’s direction at the questions asked, too. She wanted to know that as well, especially as she doubted they were supposed to Stun them too much. Stunning spells had power, after all.

“Ready as I can be.” Her wand was, anyhow.

Support cane in one hand, raspberry wand in the other, Adam tap-tap-tappity-tapped his way into the thought chamber. ”As you zay cabtain.” He took a moment to tap his cane around the area for to get the lay of the land before folding the cane up and tucking it away. He then reached into another pocket of his robes and pulled out a couple of vials of varying sizes. ”I Alvays keep ein couble on me. You neffer know vat you're koing to find vile out und around.” He handed a couple to Megan.

Holding a few vials himself. He took a couple of steps towards the tank. He placed one hand on the tank and felt the humming restlessness of the contents.”Do you zink accio vould vork?” he asked Megan, while doubting it himself. Trusting his co-workers to be ready with their wands, because, hey- it wasn’t like Adam was going to be the best shot in the room and also trusting that someone would pull/knock him out of harms way, he tucked his wand between his teeth and began to open his vials and to collect his samples.

Was it just Adam’s imagination or his wacky lacking eyesight or was the tank aglow with a very redd-ish yellow glow?

Interesting.

That was the word Megan used to describe the thought Chamber the moment she set eyes on the inside. Naturally, the only thing seemingly holding her attention were the brains. She stood where she was for a moment staring at them. So creepy! That’s what they were! Even as Airey spoke, she remained looking at them. “Got you!” she said happily, ready to complete the task. “So, you lot discovered another solution that will be better?’’ The casual question was thrown at any Mysteries employee as she headed over to Adam. “Looks like you and I are going to be a team today, Adam! How do we do this? Any special equipment needs to be used? Anything in particular I should know about these Enceph- oh, forget it- brains?’’

Watching Airey work was fascinating. The blond watched him as keenly as she could until he was ready. “All set, bossman!’’ ‘Bossman’ just popped out. It was something she was accustomed to calling Maddox. Whatever. Airey was sort of her boss right now.

Those brains though... they had a mind of their own? It was certainly something to see some gliding about, some doing this and some doing that. Ooh, that Laurel lady had some helpful solutions. Megan recorded then in her mind. Safety was important to her.

Stepping a tad closer to the tank, the woman shook her head at Adam. “I don’t think so. At least I don't think it would be that simple.’’

Tahnia was late to the party. She wasn't a last to know on any sort of news kind of person per se, she just didn't know if her services would have been of use considering she cataloged and sorted and did the mundane sort of work around here. Perhaps that was why she drifted towards the thought chamber, to observe the sort of maintenance that would be taking place with containers full of brains of all things. Maybe she missed the excitement of her previous work.

And maybe she wasn't going to move from her position towards the entrance either. They weren't kidding when a container full of brains was mentioned.
