The Sound of Silence

Well, since my little snippet seems to have drawn a great big nothing, I can only assume that it is either:

A) Abysmal

B) Too shocking for words

C) All of the above

heh heh heh

OK. FWIW, here are my thoughts:

There's a story buried in there, though not quite what the snippet would indicate. The MC obviously has issues with women that would make a Freudian multi-orgasmic. The deeper issues have to do with the nature of reality.

Our dreams and our waking reality do influence each other. In most people most of the time, the feedback is self-damping. What would happen if the controls failed and the cycle started self-reinforcing. As the two realities slopped over into each other, what would be the effect on the MC? What would be the effect as the line between sleeping and waking blurred into nothing?

Another consideration would be the effect this would have on others. Would they see him as merely psychotic, or would his troubles affect them as well. In other words, is "reality" a concrete absolute, or is it, as implied by quantum physics, as shared fantasy?

You forgot:

d) getting ready to go out of town.

There's nothing worse than a post that should garner comments, sitting silent and empty. I hate that feeling!
