In 1983, a team of deeply pious scientists conducted a radical experiment in an undisclosed facility. The scientists had theorized that a human without access to any senses or ways to perceive stimuli would be able to perceive the presence of God. They believed that the five senses clouded our awareness of eternity, and without them, a human could actually establish contact with God by thought. An elderly man who claimed to have “nothing to left to live for” was the only test subject to volunteer. To purge him of all his senses, the scientists performed a complex operation in which every sensory nerve connection to the brain was surgically severed. Although the test subject retained full muscular function, he could not see, hear, taste, smell, or feel. With no possible way to communicate with or even sense the outside world, he was alone with his thoughts.

Scientists monitored him as he spoke aloud about his state of mind in jumbled, slurred sentences that he couldn’t even hear. After four days, the man claimed to be hearing hushed, unintelligible voices in his head. Assuming it was an onset of psychosis, the scientists paid little attention to the man’s concerns.

Two days later, the man cried that he could hear his dead wife speaking with him, and even more, he could communicate back. The scientists were intrigued, but were not convinced until the subject started naming dead relatives of the scientists. He repeated personal information to the scientists that only their dead spouses and parents would have known. At this point, a sizable portion of scientists left the study.

After a week of conversing with the deceased through his thoughts, the subject became distressed, saying the voices were overwhelming. In every waking moment, his consciousness was bombarded by hundreds of voices that refused to leave him alone. He frequently threw himself against the wall, trying to elicit a pain response. He begged the scientists for sedatives, so he could escape the voices by sleeping. This tactic worked for three days, until he started having severe night terrors. The subject repeatedly said that he could see and hear the deceased in his dreams.

Only a day later, the subject began to scream and claw at his nonfunctional eyes, hoping to sense something in the physical world. The hysterical subject now said the voices of the dead were deafening and hostile, speaking of hell and the end of the world. At one point, he yelled “No heaven, no forgiveness” for five hours straight. He continually begged to be killed, but the scientists were convinced that he was close to establishing contact with God.

After another day, the subject could no longer form coherent sentences. Seemingly mad, he started to bite off chunks of flesh from his arm. The scientists rushed into the test chamber and restrained him to a table so he could not kill himself. After a few hours of being tied down, the subject halted his struggling and screaming. He stared blankly at the ceiling as teardrops silently streaked across his face. For two weeks, the subject had to be manually rehydrated due to the constant crying. Eventually, he turned his head and, despite his blindness, made focused eye contact with a scientist for the first time in the study. He whispered “I have spoken with God, and he has abandoned us” and his vital signs stopped. There was no apparent cause of death.

    Y’know what…I really quite liked this!

    Good imagery, not too shocking or creepy but quite absorbing. Good ending too. Liked it very much.

    I loved the idea. Gave me goosebumps almost throughout the entire thing. Just be careful about the ending. It’s too typical and plain of an ending for a pasta like this that has potential.

    Well… Certainly an interesting taste, and slightly creepy, but it could have been more filling. Flesh it out a bit, for god’s sake! (lol) I’m giving it a 6/10, as it was different from the other meals.

    I don’t know if it was just that the idea struck a personal chord with me or if the subject matter, especially the ending, seemed bio-engineered to terrify Christians such as myself, but by the end of this pasta, I was physically sick with an inexplicable sense of dread. Ten out of motherfucking ten.

    You know what, for a while, the stories with gratuitous, copious amounts of blood involving, “Flesh tearing, etc.” along with the relation to immature, middle school fantasies got mind-numbingly redundant. The stories as of late have been getting more interesting and less childish, “King Midas” – though well written – like, including, “The House in the land of night,” and, “The Cold Man.” This one was an interesting 8/10. I wonder why the guy died and I wish for more elaboration on god, its nature, and “why it abandoned us!” Obviously, I love well thought out stories that keep you enthralled, paint a vivid picture, and draw you into the world of the story. Keep up the good pastas.

    I really liked it, and to mention a special point, I LOVED the fifth paragraph. That one was just perfect.

    I really liked this pasta. My favorite in a while. Only the ending was weak, HUGE potential unused. A little disappointing, but I am satisfied. Thanks. Finally, a decent pasta.

    I really enjoyed this. I’m honestly waiting for the test results to be leaked to the public. XD

    “With no possible way to communicate…”

    And then the subject goes on to communicate throughout the story.

    Also, if he is completely deprived of his senses he would not be able to move or fling himself into a wall. You can move unless you can feel your muscles. It’s similar to being paralyzed.

    Overall, not a bad effort though. A little more proofreading and editing and you’ll have a nice short story here.
