journal day 518.

It was once said

that those suffering

from the incapacity to

love are living in hell.

I often wonder if Dostoevsky

wanted to say more

because what I know

of hell isn't simply

a place where love

doesn't exist.

Nor is it a place

you go when you die.

Hell is here in this facility.

In the body and in the

mind, hell is a battle

you know you will one day lose.

It's waking up every

morning with the very

real threat that it

could be your last.

It's watching other

human beings starve.

While those with the

means ignore them.

It's placing the

hope for humanity

on artificial intelligence.

It's having a daughter you

don't recognize anymore

and who doesn't

recognize you anymore.

Hell is what the East

inflicted on us two years ago

when they pushed the

button on day zero.

And now as our food supplies

run drastically low,

our friends and

families forced into

punishment details with

substandard equipment.

Our continued attempts

to communicate

with other facilities failing.

Hell is creeping in

to the collective

conscious of those that remain.

The reason and rational

is all but depleted.

I wish I knew what

the future holds

but that would mean believing

that there is a future.

I don't know how much

longer we have left.

(dramatic music)

(heavy breathing)

[Computer] Access denied.

Access granted.

(heavy breathing)

Decontamination complete.

Airlock pressurized.

Entry secured.

[Frost] Whoa whoa whoa whoa.

Broadman are you okay?

[Broadman] McMan

got caught in the fog.

He's still out there, save him.

[Frost] It's too late

Broadman, it's too late.

Let's just get you to Medicon.

(dramatic music)

[Broadman] What will

your father make of this?

He could have saved him.

[Alexa] We don't know that.

[Broadman] Don't we?

[Computer] Good morning Eden

this is day zero minus 364.

Pollution and radiation

levels remain constant.

No other survivors

have been located.

Standby for the President's

daily announcement.

[President] While we

continue to work tirelessly

to reach other

groups of survivors

due to food shortages

every citizen

will be on three quarter

rations as of today.

Remember this is for your

own safety and well being.

I was out there

too long wasn't I?

That's for Dr. Macdonald

to assess and not me.

Broadman late back from

punishment detail doctor.
