Five Thousand Dollars and a Ten Month Waiting List

Post by manintheshack » Thu Sep 16, 2010 2:20 pm

The technicians told me that the session would begin immediately after the ceiling lights had faded and the red bulb on the wall flashed green. They told me I would have thirty minutes. They also vigorously reminded me that what would be displayed in that time would be no sentient ghost, but an illusion, a mental projection plucked from my mind and planted in full virtual form behind the reinforced screen before me.

I know what they said is true, but it doesn’t stop me pounding on the glass to reach you. It doesn’t stop me howling for your forgiveness.
