There may be a large complex under the Dandenong Ranges, 40 k from the centre of Melbourne. I knew some guys who were down-and-outers, people with
no-one to miss them, and they were hiding, having escaped from working there and certain they would be killed if found.
They said they'd been referred by various charities they went to to an education course, and after filling out a lot of personal questions were
transported to an underground place, told they had qualified for a special training course.
They said there were huge warehouses and garages built underground and the complex was far too big for any of them to know how many levels there were
or how widely each level extended. They were not free to go anywhere but the level they worked on and the canteen and dormitories.
They described the tunneller as a huge driverless nuclear powered cylindrical machine. They said it was supposed to drill a kilometre each day, but
never did. There was always something malfunctioning. They did get training. They were trained to do maintenance on this machine by real engineers,
(who seemed to avoid going near it themselves,) including replacing many of the cutters each 24 hours. After being underground for 6 months, they
thought in terms of time periods rather than days.
They were puzzled about the tunnel walls, saying that after the machines had been through, the walls and rook of the tunnel were solid black glass. I
couldn't work out if the plural use of machines meant several went through to make it like that, or if they just meant there were several
They had no proof of any workers being hurt, but were afraid because everyone doing daily work in contact with this machine seemed "disposable",
and they were afraid the work was making them sick. (Loose teeth, more hair in the comb than they expected, pink toothbrush, nausea.) They said people
working there longer would get sick and then disappear, and they'd be told the person had left because their contract had finished.
They were afraid they would all end up dead to stop the story getting out, and managed to hide themselves in the back of a truck and get driven out.
This could all be a story they made up, but they looked terrified, and really uneasy discussing it. And they told me a tunnel from it goes directly
under my house, and asked how much my house shakes.
I'm nocturnal, and had noticed that things on my desk rattle a lot between 2 and 4 am. I'd already spoken to the weather bureau about that and been
told it must be passing lorries, and there are very few earth tremors around here. Trouble is I live on a very quiet remote dirt road.
