Summary

This book is best read at night or in a dimly lit place Nigel Vitam was invited by Kokichi Nakamura, representative of the most famous research company in the world led by Dr. Lavender Monday, creator of the Memo Pod, a cure for Alzheimer's Disease, to participate in experimental research. He was swayed to join because of the huge sum of cash involved and the strict contract that was tailored primarily for the subjects of the experiment. He was then dubbed as Subject 0024. The next day, the experiment took place. Dr. Lavender Monday explained the procedure of the experiment about the floating screen while inside the Memo Pod and that it is tailored to enhance the brain functions through virtual means. She told him that everything he would perceive was not real. When he asked her if he would ever experience side effects after the procedure, her answer to him seemed as though she was not telling the truth. This led to him panicking and passing out.

Dr. Lavender:
“Good evening Subject 0024.”
“Thank you for participating in our mental experiment.”
“My name is Dr. Lavender Monday and I will be your conductor for this evening.”
“What you see in front of you right now is a floating screen with everything that I say being encrypted as I speak.”
“Everything that I say is logged and recorded to transcribe the events that will occur during the experiment.”
“You can see my name on top followed by a colon.”
“Everything that I will say will be quoted.”
“Every feeling that I will express and actions that I will do will come out with brackets instead of quotation marks.”
“For example...”
[sighs]
“Internal thoughts will come out with parentheses.”
“Your internal thoughts will not be seen by others.”
“In a few moments, you will be allowed to speak.”
...
...
...
“You may now be able to communicate Subject 0024.”

Subject 0024:
“Good evening Dr. Lavender.”
[anxious]
“Will I be still the same after the experiment?”

Dr. Lavender:
“Yes...”
[clicks pen repeatedly]
“You won’t have any memories of the events.”
“We had you signed a contract that you can use against us if we violate any of our protocols.”

Subject 0024:
“I can only see a purple light up ahead.”
[anxious]
“Is this a normal occurrence?”
“Also, I cannot see you but your actions indicate that you are clicking your pen repeatedly. Is that a habit of yours?”

Dr. Lavender:
“I will answer all of your concerns one by one.”
“First, the purple light is normal.”
“Second, the action I did earlier is indeed a habit.”

Subject 0024:
“Were you lying to me when you answered yes a while ago?”
[doubtful]

Dr. Lavender:
“No...”
[starts to click pen repeatedly]

Subject 0024:
“Are you sure that nothing will happen to me after the experiment?”
[anxious and doubtful]

Dr. Lavender:
“Your vitals are rising up.”
“You must not panic.”
“Everything will be alright.”
“I will now administer a calming agent to help you relax before the beginning of the experiment.”
...
...
...
“In a few moments, you will feel immediate relief.”

Subject 0024:
(She’s right. I feel less anxious than before. My shakiness is also gone.)
[sighs deeply]
“I’m sorry. I guess I was just getting agitated because I don’t know what’s about to happen.”

Dr. Lavender:
“Anxiety is the fear of the unknown. It is natural for humans to feel anxious when trying to expect the unexpected.”
“I a few minutes, the experiment will begin.”
“I will now give you important tips.”
“The experiment will end tomorrow at 8 o’ clock in the morning.”
“The time now is 7:58 in the evening.”
“You will not remember anything when you wake up.”
“Nothing will happen to you physically.”
“All of the things that you will see here are only perceived by your thoughts.”
“Please remember that the place where you will be going is not real.”
...
...
...
“The experiment will begin in T-minus 60 seconds.”
“You may now ask for any concerns.”

Subject 0024:
“If I know that nothing is real, how will the experiment go?”

Dr. Lavender:
“It will go as planned.”
“You will not be able to tell the difference.”

Subject 0024:
“If I perceive pain in during the experiment, will it only be perception and it will not be real pain at all?”

Dr. Lavender:
“Yes.”

Subject 0024:
“Then I wouldn’t need to worry, right?”
...
...
...
“Hello?”
[puzzled]
...
...
...
“Are you there?”
[still puzzled]
...
...
...
[anxious]
...
...
...
“Dr. Lavender, are you still around?”
[afraid]
...
...
...
“Is everything alright up there?”
[terrified]
...
...
...

Subject 0024:
“DR. LAVENDER?”
[terrified]
“ANYONE?! PLEASE ANYONE?!”
[panic]
“HELP!!!”
“WHAT’S HAPPENING UP THERE?!”
[crying and shaking in panic]
“HELP!!!”
