Continued from days 16 17 and 18.

The next person the group meets is a person of ambiguous... well, everything. Nothing about Strange seems to make much sense at all. The sentences they speak work grammatically, but at the same time it's difficult to find much actual meaning in what they say. That is, until Strange starts blethering happily and unaware about three names in particular; Carmela, Niko and Beth. Upon hearing this, something in the minds of the other three clicks. They try to get Strange to say more, but they just go back to repeating a poem quietly to themself- the madness hamsters. This only causes them more questions. Who are they, and indeed, who is Strange?

From nowhere in particular, the cat advises them to try to find the answers to who they used to be so they can return to their old lives. The four of them attempt to do this, gradually piecing the fragments together. They also become aware of the encroaching chaos, which seems to be expanding. Every time they solve a problem or do something scientific, the expansion seems to slow a little. However, it's rapidly becoming a worry. It may be only a matter of time before everything becomes a random jumble of atoms, with no order and no reason.

To be continued.
