"He escaped into the waves."
The Gheritt White terminal (as I have come to call it) is the most bizarre in
the whole story. It is also the longest and the biggest pain to get too.
What relevance Gheritt White has to the Marathon story is unknown.
The text would suggest that Gheritt White lived in the 20th century.
One thing that is interesting about this terminal is that it is designated
as <L052. SAVEBOB.Gherrit.Term2> in the game's resource fork
indicating that he was originally destined to appear as the third terminal
message on level 5 (The Rose) rather than on level 2 (Never Burn Money). Yet the
the fourth terminal message on Never Burn Money contains similar and equally
bizarre references to "eyes on fire" and hands which suggests
that the two are in some way related. Go figure!
