[Experimental notes written in Balthazar's precise hand.]

His obvious deficiencies aside, it cannot be denied that young Gortash has the mind of a scientist. Before his latest invention, the illithid library was no more than rows of brains swimming in the cerebral slop. With his device, we no longer need psionic power to access the memories contained within - only to insert the subject and speak to it directly.

I do wish he were not so eager in testing the device on more recent subjects of his own, however - nor in leaving their skull shavings scattered along my workbench.
