* GoMadFromTheRevelation: The Librarian mentions several past incidents of finding sentient, primitive species, often only the size of ones hands, whose entire lives are spent under thick shells of ice on frigid worlds. Each time, the Forerunners would breach the ice, allowing the scuttlers their first glance at the outside world... at which point they would panic, retreat, seal the breaches, and utterly wipe any memory or record of the incident from their history. The Librarian reflects on the potential wisdom of their actions.
