SPECIES GH9X STUDY

10_15_2314 – DAY 737

I have now been observing GH9X for 163 days of this assignment. Signs of equal or greater intelligence exhibit themselves often, yet so many of their practices and traditions appear to be nonsensical in comparison.

Communication was established at an elementary level on day 679 [day 58 of observation period] via written symbols with subjects cz002, cz016, and cz065. While cz002 was the initial contact, it is cz016 that I have made the most progress with. My communication with cz016 is currently rated at an intermediate level of understanding.

Most recently, cz016 has been conveying former religious beliefs within the history of GH9X. These make up a very large mythos that remains important to their culture, though they are viewed only as former beliefs. Notably, they had 48,000 gods in their mythology, and not one of them currently believes in a higher power.

Technology appears to be lacking, though I question how they have accomplished certain structures using the tools and methods I have seen so far.

Family does not appear to be a concept of GH9X. Instead, each individual takes care of, and is taken care of, by those around it. No singular location seems significant to any individual. Instead, they travel and house as needed at the nearest unoccupied space. This appears to apply to other species as well, such as B0R, and obviously with our kind. I am beginning to believe that violence may be nonexistent on 19576-CZ.

Unit 001 continue to find vast systems of Uranium deposits in sector 91.793 and the surrounding regions. Factoring this in with GH9X’s total trust and lack of visible technology, it continues to be the opinion of Unit 027 that the elimination of GH9X and the extraction of Uranium from 19576-CZ will be a safe and easy maneuver.

I will submit my final recommendation on day 750.

CURRENT RISK ASSESSMENT: 12.3% (-1.6% FROM 10_08_2314)
