Evan was deeply disturbed by the deplorable condition of humanity. Adaptation was key. The phenomenon of adaptation is characterized by discernible patterns. When confronted with a novel or modified milieu, an individual may either successfully adapt and persevere, or succumb to psychological distress and retreat from the challenge of confronting unfamiliar circumstances. Evan experienced disillusion, yet he was not deceived. He was cognizant that the panorama exhibited in front of him was a mere contrivance. It was simply a three-dimensional holographic projection, projected in space to simulate the impression of a palpable actuality.
Abruptly, an eerie stillness pervaded Evan’s mind, a hush that he had never before fathomed. It descended like a shroud, rendering all noise impossible. The absence of sound and the enveloping darkness created an atmosphere of complete silence. His surroundings suddenly shifted. “Where am I?” he pondered. Initially, it appeared that he was situated on a flawlessly level and polished surface that extended limitlessly in all directions. This was an experience that his mind had never before encountered, vast and alien. However, it was soon revealed that the surface was not flat at all, but rather a dark and boundless tunnel that extended before him with spiraling lines leading downward and downward. He found himself spinning around and around, descending towards the vortex of the spiral. Involuntarily, he reached out to grasp something in order to halt his descent, but there was nothing to hold onto. Although there was substance present, matter and solidity, he felt different. His body did not feel right; a portion of it seemed to be absent, while another part was twisted and distorted, several feet away from him. Furthermore, his muscles were not functioning properly.
Initially, he experienced a sense of panic, but as time passed, the initial feeling of dread that had consumed him began to transform into a state of blind terror. It was as if he had been transported to an entirely different universe, one where everything was awry and nothing seemed familiar. This was a dreadful place that offered no solace or starting point, leaving him with nothing to cling to. As he attempted to block out this place from his mind and search for a way out, his terror only intensified. Even his physical body felt out of place in this environment, but his mind remained sharp and focused–one pointedness. Yes, biguan! This became his anchor, his only means of navigating this unfamiliar terrain. This was the only viable solution to his overwhelming sense of terror, and he was determined to use his mind to find a way out of this unsettling situation.
Evan’s mind quickly adapted to the situation. He felt a shift upon entering this new realm, a peculiar realm unlike any he had encountered before. However, his familiar world was merely a few inches away, around that very same bend. What was even more peculiar, he discovered that he could return to his own universe whenever he wished, simply by retracing his steps through that peculiar angle, now that he was aware of its existence.
The entire encounter bore resemblance to a three-dimensional cross-section of a fourth dimension. Inadvertently, he had unlatched a portal, a gateway to the void. “So this is nowhereness,” surmised Evan. In order to return to a more familiar environment, Evan proceeded by passing through that angle, akin to the act of opening a desk drawer, and successfully achieved his objective. Subsequently, he reappeared abruptly back into his own familiar domain.
