Remember this –

Should you ever despair of life so much that you want to die, you have the means at hand and yearn to end your life, you have written a suicide note to those you will leave behind and you are prepared to die… at that moment, stop.

Get a pair of scissors. Cut away at the note until you end up with a piece of paper in the shape of a key. Go to a door, any one will do. Push the paper key forward and turn your hand as if unlocking an imaginary lock.

The lock is real. Open the door. There you will find it. The other earth. The one that awaits to replace this one when it dies. That death is inevitable, but in the meantime the other earth will belong to you.

Be warned: the other earth is very different from this one.

    The vague threat in this one is nice. It lets you imagine that maybe the other world is better, but since it seems like a warning, it probably isn’t. Maybe it’s a lot worse. I’m imagining a world covered with sentient black vines, for some reason o_o

    It feels better at first, for a while at least…it’s more free, the beings here are less inhibited.

    Everything looks identical too, but…

    It has a different feel to it. With freedom comes…isolation. The things here are much more cold. Their smiles are wider, but also emptier, less real.

    I wasn’t even feeling suicidal; not in the old world anyway, I was just bored and looking for a new experience. But this new one, is starting to wear on me.

    So wait, what happens if you despair of the “Other Earth”? Can you cross back?

    I’m thinking of purchasing a luxury villa in the Other Earth, for every August.

    The ones who are closest to you are the ones who get hit the hardest. The weather gets ugly, life gets rocky, and you start looking for threats, trying to figure out who is responsible for your problems, thinking that somebody over in the next room is why your life has turned to shit.
    But lives just turn to shit
    But another worls sounds nice but i wonder if you can come back

      Instant change from matter to anti-matter! We’d be life-form made of anti-matter and we wouldn’t even have cells! *-* Come to think of it that sounds super-awesome to me.

    I chose to enter . . . . I chose to turn my paper-key – though I did not construct it from a suicide note. I instead wrote “Don’t Wanna Live” on the key AFTER I cut it from the paper. It was a shoddy key, but it did the job . . . I think.

    When I went through the door, I instantly felt a connection with the energy here. This is the Red Earth. I belong in the Red Earth. Self-inclined intellectuals with a strong spirit do well here. I feel it.

    This was an interesting pasta, but it lacked detail. Very believable because of the vagueness. Perhaps, if it had described this “other Earth” more, a little, just a little, it would be even better than it is. Also, the author’s writing skills are rather favorable. Would definitely eat again.
