They disconnected the wires and transported him back to the house. There was still a lot they could extract but experiments had proved anything more than 3 syncs was too dangerous. He wouldn’t remember any of this in the morning but then there were so many other things he wouldn’t remember.
His friends and family would blame age for the memory loss.
X2 sorted through the extraction, cross referencing it with their archives. There were only a few gaps left to fill in before the emigrants would have enough information to blend in with the current Earth inhabitants.
That’s a very promising beginning of a great story!
Asimov, this needs to completed into a full fledged story at least if not a novella. Give it a shot girl…..
I didn’t think so at first but might try that.
This is a great 100-word story, which stands very well on its own. But I agree with the others, that it could also form the premise for a very interesting longer story that develops around the activities of the aliens as they emigrate/interact with earthlings.
Thank you! I hadn’t thought of it initially but maybe there is some potential here. 🙂
There is there is. Write another story about aliens, but make sure you mention hats.
