You've got to wonder whether Artie, Macy, Ax and Jenny have started to wonder at this point 'Hang on, is Gene just winding us up?' Their good friend is well known for his elaborate, head-scratching psych-outs; and staging a 'find a mysterious object in the woods, and drive everyone to distraction philosophizing over it' scenarion would be exactly the kind of long game he might choose to play. Unfortunately, if they're thinking that, they'd be wrong.... justified in their paranoia, but, nope, wrong. The Mystery Rock is a genuine head-scratcher, and Gene's aggravating absorption in it might just be a bonafide power that he / she / it has over him! Has he gone to work in the last few days, for example? No idea. Gene is right on one thing, though - its composition is definitely closer to a Granodiorite than a basic granite: there's only 60% silica minerals (rather than around 70 as in granite), a much greater concentration of sodium-rich plagioclase feldspar, and slightly lower levels of quartz. That's what a degree in geology gets ya, folks....
