“Thoughters” / Memorable Fancies #1426

We discovered the secondthoughters, those tiny beings infesting our minds; we found them hiding in our greymatter creases, giving us second thoughts about everything we do, whispering and criticizing and shaming us.

So we excised them, scalpel’d our minds clean of these beings who never gave us any peace.

Then we had pure sensation, act without regret. No more guilt, not any more.

How could that have gone so wrong?
