He found three such people. Rebecca and Mathias sat down and discussed the questions to be asked, the main goals of these interviews were to get directions, past and future changes stories and to run the time in space experiment with people who didn't speak English. Samuel was the second elderly person he interviewed. This file is an excerpt from that interview with the directions segment, the discussion of how Vane has changed in the past and may change in the future, and a discussion of his children and grandchildren and when they were born. The time in space experiment section is in the full file.The interview is conducted in Avatime, occasionally Rebecca and Mathias use some English.Mathias conducts the interview, Samuel answers. Rebecca mainly listens but also at times suggested which question should be asked next. Samuel's wife is off camera to the right and she comments a couple of times when they are discussing the children.
