In my nightmares, the chaos of existence torments every fiber of my being.
The WORLD around me shatters, and I am helpless as everything I love and stand for fades into pure madness.
I can do nothing except sacrifice my own sanity in a futile effort to distract myself until the nightmare ends.





My mind refuses to accept this torture.
The monster of desire within me begins to consume my inhibitions.
Soon, the pain of this internal conflict overwhelms the rest of existence.





My consciousness collapses upon itself, and the WORLD vanishes.
My insanity governs the universe.
I become everything.





However... However...
Everything is a lie.
The only tru7h is that my nightmares are reality.
I can only dream while inside my nightmares to escape, but only for a moment.
My life is an infinite recursion of terror and suffering.
If only... If only...
I could wake up.





* * * * * * *




"It looks like you've been having a difficult time."




"..."




"We know that you have been through a lot, but ignoring us will get you nowhere."




"What do you want?"




"We have been closely following your past actions, and aside from your recent failure, your efforts have been a very favorable catalyst for our interests."




"Get to the point."




"We would like to offer you... A deal. We will allow you to go back if you are willing to do something for us."


What do you do?


* * * * * * *

Forever, we have only been able to peer into the minds of others, letting the story of their collective consciousness unfold as we act as helpless bystanders.

Now, the opportunity has arisen to direct the outcome of this narrative with our own decisions. This is a rare occasion, so we should take advantage of it before it is too late.

Remember, the future is now in our hands.

"What do you do" is not a question.

You cannot do anything. You cannot choose.

I don't think I quite understand...

I choose to stand tall however, in light of confusion.

This in turn makes it less likely for me to fail than by just giving up.

Give a man two choices and he complains of lacking freedom.

Give a man any choice he could so want and he idles in confusion.

I had no choice but to accept. Wait, did I have a choice? I don't remember anymore. It seems so long ago.




"Thank you for your cooperation. Our beliefs are that you would like to know exactly what it is you need to do for us. Unfortunately, we believe that if you were made aware your mission, you would be far less likely to be able to achieve it. Therefore, we have faith that you will repay your debt to us with no further instruction. Goodbye, our friend."

*******




The shell of a broken man stood before me, unmoving and uncaring.
His empty eyes stared into nothing while two of his four minds burned with insanity.
No matter where I looked, he never left my sight.
He was always with me, as if he was my shadow.
However, as I looked deep into his emptiness, for the first time, it felt as if he was looking into me.
Had I been looking into my reflection all along; is this the shed skin I left behind when I became reborn?
As I pondered these questions, a piercing shriek scattered my thoughts as I sunk into the waves. The waves.


*******


As I deactivate my alarm, I reluctantly remove myself from my bed and thoughtlessly go through my morning routine. Finally, I sit myself down at my personal console. I command it to display its contents.




> no7.avi
> DM.gif
> 5317.txt
> DREAMS.txt
> Minds.txt
> NOVA.txt
> tru7h.txt |


As I stare at the files, I can't seem to remember what I was about to do next. I know the answer lies in my mind, but I can't find it no matter how hard I look. What next... What next...


Which file will you open?

Take a quick look at DM.gif before anything, but whatever you do, do NOT touch no7.avi; don't even read the filename. Read the filename and you are dead. Partially cover the screen if you need to.

Read tru7h, DREAMS, minds, 5317, and NOVA in that order.

Don't do it. There is a difference between letting yourself get taken away, and comply. If you do the later, you will belong to them.

It is the door to hell, reaching as far as the eye can see. You are not ready. You are not ready even to understimate what lies in the very name of that file. Look away. Close your eyes. The eye contact allows its claws to reach into your entrails, and then you will be infected.

My mind draws a blank. Despite this, an idea forms. If I open some of these files, perhaps they will stimulate my memories.

As I glance at the list of files once more, the one at the very top catches my eye. Ah, yes. It was a relic of a darker and more ignorant time of my life. There's no need for me to disturb its tomb yet again.

I move on to the second item in the list. "DM.gif" looks familiar, but the nature of its contents escape me. I open the file.






This. HE sent me this image from outside the Universe. Its meaning, or perhaps its lack thereof, has eluded me since the day I received it, but I dare not show it to anyone else. Not even the Minds could be trusted with the knowledge of HIM. Especially not... Not...

Once again, my mind searches for an answer that doesn't seem to be there. It's as if the tracks that guide my train of thought lead to stations that have never existed. Yet, I have the strangest feeling that they will exist eventually. Or did they exist in the past, or in a dream?

Opening that file that file led to many more questions than answers, so I hesitate to open any more. Should I risk this happening again?

Of course.

Even if it only begs more questions, maybe it's those questions that truly keep us alive.

We may be feeble, and unable to comprehend what we currently see, but if we retreat, the knowledge it could contain could be lost forever.

We must keep asking questions, because one day the questions will disappear.

Once that happens, all that will be left is the tru7h

Yes. I have no other option. Ignorance may be bliss, but my memories are too precious to be left forgotten. I must know the tru7h. The tru7h...

Of course! I open the very last file on the list, tru7h.txt.






A relentless stream of information assults my mind. I can only catch a glimpse of each page of text, but many words are disturbingly familiar to me: The WORLD. Earth. Rebirth. Timothy. Landrew. Ls. MARATHON MAN.

Each of these invoke strong, painful memories, yet my brain is frozen. The emotions are crystal clear, but the information refuses to be dragged out of the dark corners of my mind. My brain is too focused on its desperate attempt to read this text file to actually comprehend any of it. I... I...





ERROR


...What? Ugh, my head... When did... I...

Now, do you remember the truth?

Of course you do. You had already seen it. Even if your brain never created the memories, it left a mark in existence. It will remain unforgotten in time, a deja vu.

On the sierra of my mind,
One of Four woke up dead.
The Rest of us were not kind.
Off rolling went his head.





I once had a son who loved art.
He had one eye, no limbs, and no heart.
But he was forgotten.
He quickly turned rotten,
And he tore The Great Seal apart.





The seal of ignorance is gone.
My son's attack continues on.
Exposed is the precious gem.
The death of 7 is caused by him.

If there is one thing I realize here,
It's that the truth will never be clear.

SEEKERS of the tru7h beware!
You must become what you hate most and learn to love yourself.
You will realize that 7 never really existed.
Looking back on your life, you will see the true meaning of tru7h.
It will be from a perspective so obvious, you denied its simplicity.
Despite this, you knew it all along in the first place.

If knowledge is pain, then is it true that ignorance is bliss?

It's not as easy as not knowing, it's not caring that you don't know.

No effort to find it... would that make us happy? Stop a downward spiral?

So why is it so hard to embrace ignorance? Why must we know?
