I want you to do something for me. Stop what you're doing. Silence all noise around you. Don't speak, don't move, just listen. What do you hear? Silence. Total silence, right? Of course, what else is there to hear? Keep listening. Now what do you hear? Maybe you're still hearing the silence, in which case, you will have to try again later, but if you aren't hearing silence anymore, what do you hear? Do you hear the distant calling of your name from somewhere unknown? Maybe you're hearing the hushed whispers. Maybe you can make out what they are saying. Can you hear them? They are talking about your future. They speak of evil things to come in your life. Do you still hear them? They are talking about your death. They speak of how nobody will remember you when you are gone. Stop listening to them. What can you hear now? If you are lucky, then you will hear nothing but the silence again, but if you still hear something else, what is it? Can you hear the distant screams? The utterly bone-chilling screams of the damned. Maybe you still hear the whispers. No matter what you are hearing, stop. Listen again. Silence, right? No.....no it's more than silence. Humans hear silence for one simple reason. Mind over matter. You think that you are hearing silence, therefore, you are, right? Well, now you're thinking about not hearing the silence anymore. What I have just done is put the thought back into your head that you were never hearing silence, but did that thought ever really leave? Did the voices of your "imaginary" friends ever really leave, or did you just convince yourself that they left so you wouldn't hear them anymore? Mind over matter, right? Listen to the silence one last time. Maybe you're hearing the screaming again. Something is different about it this time, though. Now it seems familiar. Our brains are wired to alert us of danger, but only if we BELIEVE that we are IN danger. You used mind over matter to block out the screams and voices, but little did you know that those voices were your brain's warning to you of the man who broke into your home last night while you slept. Those screams.....they seem familiar because they are yours. I will be hearing them in just a few moments. Your brain tried to save you, but you chose only to hear the silence. I want you to do something for me. Stop what you're doing. Now listen. Your brain is telling you what you're going to hear when I'm done with you. Total silence...
