In 1983 a man was tested to see if he could sense god if all his senses were taken away. Every sense nerve in his brain was disconnected. He could not feel, hear, see or smell. He began reporting he could hear the voices of the dead and gave precise details that he could have not known. He then said he could see them and began clawing at his eyes, it turned to screaming and biting chunks of his flesh off. His last words were “I have spoken with God, and he has abandoned us” and died.
this is terrifying
"the beautiful ones… the popular ones… the guys that pick on you. Everyone. If you could hear what they’re feeling… the loneliness, the confusion. It looks quiet down there. It’s not."
Sometimes I wish I had watched Buffy as a teenager. I spent my highschool days being Jonathan and so, so angry that nobody else shared the pain I was in. I needed to see this. I needed to understand that lesson.
this was supposed to play right after Columbine, but because of the tragedy, they delayed it, worried about it being too close to home, but I really wish they hadn’t, because so many kids started following Dylan and Eric’s example, thinking that they were justified in their vengeance. This would have showed them they weren’t. Everybody has pain and that’s not an excuse for the horrible things some of them do, but it may help to know that it’s there sometimes.
Also, you forgot the best part of that quote, the part I thought was most beautiful.
“It looks quiet down there. It’s not. It’s deafening.”
