We have completed the last of the extractions and the specimens should arrive by morning. This batch was from a country club in eastern Oklahoma. This is a bit of an outlier compared to the usual collection areas deeper within the heartland, but these subjects fit the bill. Any variation due to this is statistically improbable. As with the previous collections, the subjects were caucasian, middle class, Christian males. The samples were collected under the pretense of a blood drive to support police officers injured during attacks by liberal protestors. Updates will cease until the experiment officially commences.

We have finished sequencing the genomes of each of the samples. We have a total number of 370 samples from locations throughout the Midwest, with the largest portion coming from Ohio and Illinois, although there were a few outliers from Allen, Romano, and other benefactors. There are certain aspects from each that we wish to express within the subject. Pronounced nordic fold. Pasty complexion. Receding hairline. If we stick to the schedule then we should move on to lab trials within the week.

The host embryo has been prepared and is about to be placed inside the tank. The host was a caucasian woman in her mid-30’s from Toledo, Ohio. Our agent, who is embedded within the Toledo medical network, changed the result of her tests to read that the child was stillborn and relayed the order for it to be removed. I regret that we had to use such means to retrieve the embryo, in direct contradiction to the values we wish to uphold, but there was no other way. We must secure the future of the project by any means, even something so deplorable. At least that is behind us and we may now look to the bright future which lies ahead for both the organization and the nation as a whole. Logs will now commence monthly, barring any abnormalities.

Subject K6042 seems to be progressing normally but at a much faster rate than expected. It had gestated for roughly 5 weeks within the host mother’s womb before being placed the experiment started, but it now has the appearance of a 3 month old fetus. Although the accelerated growth rate is worthy of note, K6 is an otherwise healthy child.

The growth rate has accelerated even further. K6 has grown to the point of a newborn after just two months in artificial gestation. There has been no tampering with the experiment and these conditions are meant to replicate a mother’s uterus. We are actively searching for what the cause of this enhanced growth could be, but we have made no progress in the investigation. K6, however, is apparently healthy, so there is no reason to not continue.

K6 has progressed to the point of a one year old child, but he has strangely yet to respond to outside stimuli. We have tried visual, aural, and tactile stimuli but have yielded no results. K6, however, seems to be otherwise healthy and, according to readings of his brain activity, of above average intellect.

Finally, we have made progress. The answer was right under our noses the whole time. The problem wasn’t that K6 wasn’t responding to stimuli, it was that we were simply using the wrong stimuli. Instead of the classical music and top 40s that we tried before, we thought of K6 and where he came from. Who he was. We created a carefully curated playlist of so called “dad-rock,” essentially a mix of both classic and “modern” alternative from the early 2000s. The results were immediate. His eyes opened and he attempted to move his feet to the music, although it seems that he simply doesn’t have this ability. I swear I saw him smile. We will try showing him World War II documentaries and reruns of CSI: Miami in the coming days.

K6 grows more perfect with each passing day. His lanky physique. His thin lips. His drooping jowels. He is beautiful, everything we expected and more.
July 17, 2015
I know it isn’t the best idea, but I decided to give K6 a name. I look at him, through that glass prison, and I see something more than a guinea pig. I see a man. How can we call a man by a string of numbers? He is flesh and blood. I look into those soft green eyes and I see a soul. John. Yes, I’ll call him John.
July 18, 2015
Our work is nearing completion. The chairmen came down to inspect K6… John. They have deemed our progress to be satisfactory and stated that John has met all of their expectations. Of course he has. You can look at him and tell that he is perfect. Too perfect for this world. Every night I pray and ask God what we did to deserve something like this. But then I wonder if John is really sent from God. Really, wasn’t he created by us… by my hands? We have taken nature and made its process more efficient and its result more perfect. What good is God to us?
July 19, 2015
John has been acting strangely. He woke in the middle of the night and thrashed against the wall of his tube until we could come and sedate him. They are supposed to come in the morning, and it’s almost like he knows that they’re coming for him. He doesn’t want them to take him from his mother. I don’t either, but what can I do? They would have me killed if I stepped out of line. I don’t know what I can do, but can I really just sit by and watch them take him away?

Oh christ, how could I be so stupid? He didn’t want to stay, he was trying to escape. I tried to stop him, but I think it’s too late. He has tasted blood and now he hungers. It’s only a matter of time before he finds me. But why? Why would he do this? I cared for him. I gave him life. It is my hand that sculpted his flawless form. I don’t deserve this. I think I heard something. No, this can’t be the end. Jesus christ please I don’t want to die. I don’t want to die. I don’t want to die I don’t want to die i don’t want to die i dont want to die i don
