the feeling fo  "somethign is wrong with 
 the world"  -  in  a  very profound way, 
   in a doubt-your-every-qualia way, it   
 never dissipated. just  grew used to it, 
                numb to it                
   maybe even filtered subconsciously to  
      relieve the growing tension and     
 that's  perhaps  the  draw  of  stories, 
  mysteries and "magiscal realism", most  
 horror   stories   even   -   there   is 
   confirmation. something really is    
 there. what  it is is not that important
