- “Gateway of the Mind”
This horrifying take on talking to God tells of an experiment where scientists took a man and took away every sense that he had. The man could not hear, smell, taste, see, or feel anything. The man was still able to talk and his muscles were still working. The scientists hoped that by doing this the man would be able to establish a communication with God. As the experiment progresses the man told of what he was experiencing. This story takes only five minutes to read, but it’s truly horrifying in telling what he experiences as he is purged from everything in the physical world.
