“The Insanity Program” / Memorable Fancies #724

     From the ceiling, from the walls, came the soft voices. Occasionally, Matthew recognized a word or two, important words that reeked of meaning: “…almost too late for…”. “…do you know what he…”.]

     He strained to hear the voices, but the more intently he listened, the quieter they became. It was driving him crazy, he thought, hearing something he couldn’t hear.

     “SPEAK UP, FOR GOD’S SAKE,” Matthew shouted, but the voices continued softly, calmly, unperturbed. He stuffed cotton in his ears, hummed to himself to cover the sounds; but just when he was succeeding, a shout would suddenly burst through, like “HE’S ALMOST READY NOW” or “DON’T TELL HIM YET.”

     After several weeks of this treatment, Matthew was reduced to babbling incoherently and pissing himself.

     Several important journal articles were derived from this experiment.
