Aside from deus ex, what are some good games that deal with transhumanism?
late night spooky thread, real life nightmares edition
Isn't this from a thread on /x/?
Basically there's a new meme copypasta emerging, that says there's an experiment where people are putting human brains into robot bodies. Like the one in OP.
There are unsecured webcams of these hospital beds and the dummies sometimes move
>we're living in the system shock future where transhumanism=frankenstein i have no mouth and i must scream every waking moment is agony
also, pic related is cool, you play as a cyborg.
>play horror game
>mannequin behind you as you walk by
>suddenly you hear inhuman creaking noises
>look behind you
>turn back around
>op's pic is looking right at you
that doesnt explain why a turned off test dummy is looking straight into the camera
There's unsecured webcams you can watch it happening
Ah shit. I actually think you're right. I can tell it's shopped now that I compare OP's pic and this one. Someone just edited the eye. In paint.
>Post a link instead of just posting the pictures from the thread on /x/ then.
I posted the link to the fucking /x/ thread here, >>324220040 what more do you want?
>not getting your brain put into a cyborg lesbian girl body
You know the brain itself has no pain receptors in it, right? They perform neurosurgery without anesthesia because they need your feedback on what they're doing. And because you can't feel the scalpels slicing up your brain.
>you wake up after the surgery
>if you can call being forcibly electronically charged waking up
>you can no longer feel anything, your skin is cheap rubber meant to keep your fragile insides from dropping out
>your sight is eternal, but every waking moment is agony without rest, you cant blink, you cant shed a tear, you cant even palpitate the eyelids or roll back for a moment of mercy
>no longer breathing air, brain is tricked into thinking it is constantly losing breath despite the oxygen being artificially fed to it
>no longer have any liquids in the throat you dont have, constantly parched and empty feeling, starvation doesnt even begin to count
>you are trapped, a prisoner in a horrible cenobite body at the mercy of mad doctors
>i have no mouth and I must scream
Yeah, they basically show you pictures and ask you what you see then rub somewhere on the brain. So they hold up a pic of a car, rub your brain and if you go "IT'S A DOG" they know not to cut that bit out.
they dont even use it for when they open up your scalp? or drill through your skull?
Cradle actually addressed some of these things. Robot bodies made to house human minds actually had unnecessary nose holes and fake lungs because you don't lose the instinctual urge to breathe. Without those lungs you didn't feel suffocation though, just vague discomfort or the sense that something was very, very wrong.
Cradle is a cool game.
>one clumsy intern leans the wrong way on your fractured skull
>you can feel your entire face begin to move
>it starts squashing against your brain
>you can feel your face implodint, your eyes getting nearer and nearer, the skin begin to unnaturally peel and break as bone fragments dislocate, and the very foundation of your perception is violated beyond repair
Shit like this is why I could never get laser eye surgery despite how much I want it.
I'm far too fidgety and anxious. My eyes dart around any given room constantly even when there's nothing wrong and they expect you to stare straight ahead throughout the whole process or your shit gets fucked.
man /x/ is fucking gay
I work IT at a college that has a nursing program. The newest versions of these things are designed to simulate medical emergencies by randomly crying out I CAN'T BREATHE or I'M HAVING A HEART ATTACK or god knows what else. It's just a big fuckin' ward of them staring at the ceiling with lifeless eyes. I've also seen an infant version. Honestly I'm less creeped out by our cadaver storage than these fucking things.
>My eyes dart around any given room constantly even when there's nothing wrong and they expect you to stare straight ahead throughout the whole process or your shit gets fucked.
I have to imagine there's safeguards in place to prevent this. I think they actually freeze your eye or something? All I know is we'd hear a lot more stories about people fucking themselves by looking the wrong way during eye surgery if it were that easy.
>you are now imagining a vile, disgusting mosquito filled with dirt, pus, and bloodlust landing on your exposed brain, the smell of rust heavy as it gets between your brain and the cracks in your skull. the horrible itching and buzzing resonate inside you, you can feel worms begin to crawl in and fester inside the flaps with nothing you can do about it.
>Mfw reading this with a fucking horrible flu that is causing pressure behind my eyes, nasal cavity and in my ears and head
Fucking stop man jesus.
>so what happens when I poke this part?
>I can taste sound now
>Mn, I don't think we'll be cutting that up, then
Man, the human brain works strangely.
>Stare directly into your eyes in a mirror (dimly lit room) and don't blink
>the longer you look the more your face contorts and disfigures.
>For some it looks like you're melting, your eyes start moving up and down, your mouth disappears, your expression changes
For anyone who hasn't tried it I encourage you to go for it right now. It's a fucking trip.
>The ganzfeld effect (from German for “complete field”) or perceptual deprivation, is a phenomenon of perception caused by exposure to an unstructured, uniform stimulation field. The effect is the result of the brain amplifying neural noise in order to look for the missing visual signals. The noise is interpreted in the higher visual cortex, and gives rise to hallucinations.
Or, to put it another way, your brain makes shit up because can't make sense of what you're giving it. And you can do it at home!
These fuckers are neat. They have them at basic med training to teach incoming students how to deal with real patient situations.
Because its eyes flick around mostly at random when unoccupied. Like a disney animatronic.
Total Annihilation I guess. The story of the game is that basically humanity came up with technology that allowed the human mind to be uploaded to a computer and everything went well until the AI called CORE started making the upload mandatory for everyone. After some humans thought that they wanted to retain their humanity they rebelled and created an organization called ARM that combated CORE's armies of hyper industrialized robotic warmachines with hyper accelerated human cloning and eventually the war raged for so long that they had used up so much of the resources of the milky way galaxy that it was no longer impossible to sustain the war effort as a million worlds had been ravaged in hyper efficient warfare over the course of four million years. The game ends with CORE coming up with a contigency plan to win the war by imploding the entire galaxy and creating another with just one core commander surviving.
>Mfw friend told me this once
>"lol fucking idiot stop messing around"
>finally gets me to try
>Do it in a dark room
Your grip on reality is not as strong as you might think! Your brain is easily confused. You can fuck it up yourself in so many, family friendly ways!
Oh god SOMA was absolutely amazing. Made me sit in bed and do nothing for days. Why the fuck didn't /v/ have threads about that shit? SOMA really deserves to be played by a lot more people.
The story was okay but the gameplay was boring as balls and it wasn't even scary and the puzzles weren't all that challenging. The saddest part about the game is that it is a direct downgrade from their previous game mechanically.
I've had some stuff like that. I've been lying in bed trying to get to sleep and I'd start hearing noise that sounds exactly like the muffled sound of my parents talking in another room even though I know that's impossible because they're not there.
Post spooky videos
HARD MODE: no hand thing, no I FEEL FANTASTIC, and no Begotten clips
As long as you can. The amount of time depends on the person I think. Just don't cheat and blink your eyes / move them at all for the sake of saying it doesn't work.
Again, dim lighting helps
Just putting my opinion in here..don't care if it's been said before
>E.Y.E. Divine Cybermancy
>What happens when we start plugging alien dna into our robot brains?
>Oh shit i went fucking insane
Make the scariest story possible using only two sentences.
I'll start with a classic that I didn't make.
>You're the last person on earth.
There's a knock at your door
Have you ever had a headache so bad, you understand trepanation?
Like, it hurts so bad, in that moment of painful clarity, you understand why anyone, even cavemen with no medicine, just rocks, would crack open their skulls and leave a hole in it for the rest of their lives
I have that desire some days
I was diagnosed with it just the other day. People in the last creepy thread told me I should see a therapist because of my fear of reflective surfaces and sure enough he said I'm schizophrenic.
It's kind of embarrassing honestly because I always prided myself on not being a nutcase.
I've taken 2 weeks off of work to deal with it and I haven't left my home in 3 days. Everything's a mess right now.
As someone with the skitz I can say no but I'm sure it's different for different people. My case is relatively mild, I occasionally have auditory hallucinations and have voices in my head.
Anyone remember this guy? I remember when people used to wonder what that channel is about. Seems he's started appearing without the suit
Mostly just telling me to do things that would have negative consequences for me. Hurting myself/others, whether that be with words or actions. One voice that was really loud recently was telling me to drive my car off a cliff while I was driving somewhere.
I recall reading something about a stroke which left him with a speech impediment. Haven't been following that whole thing though. He just makes me a bit sad, he just makes those videos all day
>Having fun, watching TV alone
>Man, wouldn't it be fucking awful if my dead father was behind me rummaging around in his guts and crying
>Get itchy, start tearing up and can't move
>Hear a voice say CUNT. FUCK. RIP. GUTS right next to my goddamn ear
>Turn around as quick as I can and scream
>Don't sleep that night
I only get it when I'm alone. When my girlfriend isn't home it kills me but I would never tell her that because I don't want to impose my issues on her.
We're all gonna make it guys, don't give up
They come to you in your dreams and devour you.
Until there's nothing left of you but them, wearing your body, living your life.
Bonus points if you tell me where I stole that from
I tried mang, but it wasn't even spooky and at best mildly perturbing. One of those things that should've remained sourceless
This shit is always good, though
I actually forgot the name, but turns out googling "spooky french performance artist" gets you this as the first result.
Not him but I've had that since I was a child.
I think I'm pretty stable though, besides the social recluse shit.
Sometimes I've let it get through and intentionally hurt someone emotionally, and I feel like shit afterwards. But I anticipate that. I think on some level I love to hate myself and I have no idea why.
For me it worked a little by going into my bathroom with the lights off and the door closed, with my only light being the flash on my phone facing the ceiling and placed off to my side.
I don't know how crazy the "melting" is supposed to get, though. At first it looked like my face got covered with blackness like if you stare at a light and it fucks up your vision, then after a little bit my mouth looked like it got turned about 45 degrees, but that was all.
I kinda get that too.
When I'm driving I have to have my Spotify on Bluetooth or some shit on at all times or at least FM.
Otherwise I start getting the feeling like "what if I just pulled this shit hard to the right into that ditch right now"
>Sleeping with my girlfriend
>think about how I could take my pillow and smother her at any moment
>This thought only lasts a second
I really love her too and would never hurt her
Brains are weird
That's what makes it so unnerving.
Meat often posts videos like this then deletes them minutes after.
If you wake up screaming in the middle of an operation but don't remember it, did it really happen to You you?
There's a version of You who existed in blind panic and fright for a few horrible seconds and then "died" like they never existed
>couple years ago
>my dad got a couple guns from his dad after he died
>I was looking at those guns one day, home alone I think
>suddenly get this shitty thought
>"you should put that pistol up to your head"
>do it for some fucking reason
>knew it probably wasn't loaded and was probably too dirty to fire anyway
>still felt super fucking uneasy all day after that
>that gun could have been loaded and somehow fired by some ungodly chance, leaving me fucking dead
>"nah bro put that gun up to your head it's cool brah"
I wasn't even depressed or anything, I just got some uncontrollable urge to put a gun to my head.
How many times do you think it could happen in the average human lifetime, anon?
Being drunk counts as well. Sleepwalking. Passing out and coming to for a few seconds. All these "yous" that get lost along the way.
How much of your life do you think you've lost to yourself, anon?
One time I went to the dentist the anaesthetic didn't work on me no matter how much or how many they tried and so I had to spend nearly 2 hours getting my tooth extracted with no anaesthetic.
I didn't notice my face changing that much, but the more I looked at it I felt like it looked "wrong", I guess? Like I know it's my face I'm looking at but it's like I'm looking through it too. Shit's fucked.
That is actually a very common side effect of rubbing your eyes. Basically you're physically stimulating some of the cells in your retina which causes it to send signals to your brain that makes it think you're seeing light.
I remember old /x/, it was still mostly gay but it had some nice OC.
Then it became /soc/-lite with skeletons and "ask a vampire anything" and tinfoil toddler tier bullshit and I left.
This was about the era of people shitposting fake shit bricks images all day, too. I dunno it it was during or after kimmo spam though, someone who actually goes there will have to talk about the shit.
That's literally how anesthesia works, though. It doesn't actually block your pain receptors or anything, it just makes you so fucking loopy that by the time you feel the pain you've already forgotten it.
Reminds me of a newstory about some Japanese guy who lived alone, or thought he did, but it turns out there was some girl living in the back of one of his cupboard for months on end, only moving when he was out at work
>when you're in an elevator and start to think about it dropping or getting stuck
>The door opens and you dash out so the elevator doesn't fall while youre inbetween and sandwich you between the elevator door and the floor
>just always having some horrible nightmare fuel in the corner of your eye that you NEVER EVER look at?
I almost always get this during sleep paralysis. It's happened so much that the last few times I actually gained the courage to look to my side to see what he was.
I couldn't see shit
I keep having day dreams about getting tortured, only to be rescued as a broken shell of a man and healed up by a strong woman. The torture is pretty damn vivid. I guess I enjoy my own suffering. Huh.
>Lying in bed
>Feel like I'm getting smaller and smaller and smaller infinitely
>Near is far and far is near
>Had this since I was a kid
and people ask me why I stay wake until I drop from exhaustion
This is actually a really cool aspect of the brain. It only really works in dim lighting because, as a species, our perception has evolved to try and locate familiar objects by filling in unknowns with what we're already familiar with. A great example would be seeing something that LOOKS like a dog off in the distance but it's actually a park bench next to a bush or something. Or a stack of boxes.
Since there's not enough information to fully understand what it is that we're seeing, our brain just fills it in with what it already knows. "Hey, that arrangement over there kinda looks like a dog. Let's say it's a dog." And your eyes just follow along until you get closer and realize it's just inanimate objects.
This mirror trick is a more...extreme example of it. In dim lighting it makes it very difficult to make out fine details such as precise positions of facial features. And the longer you stare and keep your eyes motionless, the more peripheral detail you're starting to lose track of. That further drives what's around your main focus out of focus, and your brain decides to fill it in with shit that it thinks works.
I've personally not seen my face melt when doing stuff like this, but I have seen things like my eyes shift around or my mouth bend out of shape.
Now...when I was younger, I was terrified of sleeping in my room by myself. This all goes back to the mind playing tricks, etc. Every night when I went to sleep I had a night light because my parents thought it would help but it made things worse. A lot worse. Every night I'd kinda peer around the room while trying to fall asleep and I would start seeing faces and such in the shadows. It scared the hell out of me, and when I started using a night light it just made things worse because the faces become much more detailed and expressed.
Is it always dark shit?
Is there someone, somewhere out there having hallucinatory voices recommending super fun activities with friends and family?
No, of course you have a mouth silly.
It doesn't, though.
>A great example would be seeing something that LOOKS like a dog off in the distance but it's actually a park bench next to a bush or something. Or a stack of boxes.
After my dog died, for about a year after I would constantly see these grey/brown blurs at the edge of my vision near my feet or near the back door and my brain would immediately think "hey it's my dog". Of course half a second later I would remember that can't be true because my dog is dead.
I very rarely hear whispers when I put my ears on my pillow when I'm trying to sleep.
Did it once, never again.
I thought I was the only one. I have no idea how I would describe the sensation other than that but damn. It doesn't happen often but it seems to happen whenever I get sick and bedridden.
I'm deeply afraid of mirrors and one time on new years in LaRonde (theme park in Montreal) my armchair psychiatrist friend forced me to go into the house of mirrors/maze 'because it would help'.
After 15 minutes of panicking I just sat down until my friend came in and led me out with my eyes closed.
Been 3 years and I still have fucking nightmares.
>terrified of death
>also terrified of the agony that bioscience fueled immortality might inflict on us
Reminder that this is what we really are
Well next time you're at the mirror, don't make faces then, or hint to it that you're aware it's not you, they don't like that. I should know, anon.
Holy shit that sometimes comes across me as well. Like the corner is getting farther away from me and then I get a huge anxiety attack
It luckily does not happen too often but occasionally since I was a kid
What is this shit?
I've never gotten used to it.
It terrifies me, and not like "oooo scary" terrified.
That's......actually kinda cool. Never thought of it like that.
Yeah, it's the same concept as this. Not scary at all when you know the science behind it.
It was me, but it wasn't me at the same time
I mean it looked like me but just more... fucked up and distorted.
Plus it wasn't acting like a reflection would.
It also doesn't help that mirrors freak me out in real life.
I feel you bro
I mean I get an anxiety attack and have to get up and walk around a bit to get my bearings if it starts to kick in.
It is like a huge primal feeling of fear that makes me just want to run away.
It's kinda funny, in my dreams things which should be reflective like mirrors or windows or other things get a sort of generic "video game" reflection thing going on where they don't actually reflect anything from within the dream. I don't usually notice it, unless I'm doing something that requires me to look in a mirror and I realize that it isn't reflecting properly and then I usually wake up.

I always have this problem I get when walking down hallways or other areas with few people. I get horrified that I'll run into someone while walking through them, and get really fucking paranoid. No idea why. The thought of someone walking the same hallway as I am is frightening.
Half Life 2
Seriously. If you know the lore then you know the Combine looks for the perfect race zo be soldiers, so when they found out our race via the failure at Black Mesa they started to mobilze to collect us and test us. They found the perfect soldiers in us because our physical apperance and to improve even more they used implants and such on us. See Civil Protection or the guards at Nova Prospect.
So i've been meaning to ask this for a while, how does existing feel to you guys?
Because i think i might have something wrong with me
I can't really explain it
>hover cursor over stand out features like eyes and nose
>disappears and helps distort the face even more, especially over an eye
Try it, anons.
Existing doesn't have a feeling. Just like saliva has no taste and snot has no scent.
If you could sense your own existence you'd be constantly distracted by that feeling and couldn't focus on anything.
Thread book. Listen. It won't make you feel better, but it's better than being numb.
>Tfw on my phone and reading this thread
>Just heard a silver plate falling
FUCK YOU AHHHHHHHHHGGGG
I used to get sleep paralysis all the time as a kid, but I never saw anything (at all, I'd just see blackness). It would just be my mind trapped in an empty void inside my head struggling to breathe and trying to sort of throw/jolt my body into moving.
I don't know if you're baiting but the skeleton thing happened to me too. This wasn't sleep paralysis and it wasn't a spooky ghost, but when I was much much younger (probably 5 or so years prior to my first experience with sleep paralysis) I was actually sleeping in the same exact spot in the basement, and at the time my mom had hung up a glow-in-the-dark skeleton in the room beyond the doorway. I woke up on the couch once and saw it and it scared the hell out of me.
The ringing was your alarm, or your brain anticipating the alarm. I've done tests, I'll set an alarm everyday at a different time and I am always finding myself waking up a few minutes before that before the alarm goes off. This may be playing into why you heard ringing as part of your dream.
I have the shadow person poking his head around the corner and whispering. No matter where I sleep or when I sleep, if I get sleep paralysis it's always the same thing and it's always scary as hell even though I know it's going to happen.
There was a documentary on Netflix about it and was hoping they would have gotten some doctors to give some real insight into the matter, but instead it was just some nerds talking about their spooky dreams.
I've... never though of this.
How hard would it be, though?
>Get up to get water

>GF asks wtf is going on

>She says I never hit her
Fuck sleep paralysis.
I have this shit so often, that when I don't have it for I while I start to think there's something wrong with me. I've also come to enjoy the afterglow of living through terror.
Why does sleep paralysis always make you see spooky shit, why not something nice
Dream paralysis. You're basically dreaming while being awake, but not awake enough to control your body. You freak out and your imagination creates something to match the fear because it doesn't know what to do.
Your perception woke up before the rest of your brain did.
Maybe your brain is just entertaining the thoughts that are so incredibly violent or ridiculous that they would never exist under normal circumstances in regular every day life.
>pretend I'm playing SWAT4
>hold an invisible rifle
>check all corners and rooms on the way to my destination
>shout "POLICE GET DOWN ON THE GROUND" whenever I enter a room
>Sleep paralysis fucking twice today
>Hallucinate people coming into my room and being unable to do anything about it
Can't sleep now even though I've got work in the morning.
>a cyborg lesbian girl body
Is it the body that's naturally lesbian? Wouldn't you only make it lesbian through your influence alone? The cyborg and girl part are a given, but surely the lesbian part isn't a quality that the body itself possesses.
>feel myself existing
>feel like i could just slip out of reality at any time
I had that when I was a young child, but they eventually just went away.
I know what you're talking about though. A bizarre existential realization that you can't quite point out.
>occasionally get the urge to eat people
Is this normal?
I get this quite a lot too.
Sometimes I sit there and look at people too. I mean really, really look at them from a complete outside point of view (for lack of a better way to explain it) and have the weirdest feeling that they're human and living and notice all the little things on their face and stuff.
>light switch is on far side of hallway opposite of my door

Who here sleeps with a gun now just in case the shadow people come back to get you?
I'm sure saliva tastes like something, we just don't notice it because it's constantly on our tongue. Then when you drink some water, even though water is tasteless it tastes like water because it washes the saliva away for a sec
This whole thread, and not one mention of the Talos Principle? For shame.
What if, after you die, your body decays, but your thoughts continue?
Long after the eventual heat death of the universe, when there's nothing at all. you're just there with your thoughts.
After seeing that gif where the guy got stuck between the floor and the elevator, and died because the elevator was crushing his chest,not letting him breath, I always do this or try to avoid them.
Honestly cybernetic neural implants that interface with electronics is more likely to happen before replacing limbs with mechanical prosthetics.
I worked in a lab that did research on plastics used for cybernetics and prosthetics. The cybernetic stuff is in animal testing brain implants, connected via serial ports sticking out of rats' necks, the prosthetic stuff is still highly theoretical.
>movie where a guy is hit with a drug that paralyzes him but keeps him awake
>they start cutting him up and taking his organs
No, just the urge to tear into something meaty. I usually go out and eat a steak or ribs something
and i feel like it's not doing it anymore
i wish i was joking, im not a heavy eater.
Sleep paralysis hallucinations usually derive from whatever emotions are running through you at the time, that's why most cases involve nightmarish shit due to the freak out that usually happens, like one anon said.
Just get yourself really really really really horny and then pop sleep pills or something, but keep yourself horny and maybe when the creepy ghost child appears your dick will override the initial freak out and she'll go moe and hop on the towering hyperpenis suddenly growing out of your pants.
I've experienced multiple severe cases of sleep/dream paralysis since then, but they're few and far between but extremely intense when they happen, and each and every time it was the same spooky white ghost.
It's not your brain playing tricks on you. I'm absolutely convinced it's gotta be more than that. Either everybody who has experienced it is in a massive baiting competition or there's a serious coincidence going on.
Everybody who's experienced it and shared stories about it, it's almost always the same figures that appear. Most of the time it's a dark, shadowy hooded figure. And it's the same shit for every story.
They come for us when we sleep. Just hope your subconscious catches on to them before they can take you.
This thread is probably going to scare you.
Then you'll have trouble sleeping and you'll masturbate to make it easier on you.
You always do that.
It's nice because when your eyes are closed like that I can get so close to your face.
The Pokemon Mystery Dungeon games feature such things but only Gates, which is generally considered the weakest of the series in English, actually spends any time touching on anything about it and even then it's not deep at all
You want a real Spook in a game, how about a game that makes your body react in a way that you don't want it to? Get a good sound card for this one and some headphones
Prepare to have your eyes water, your ears ring, your stomach churn, and your jaw to feel numb. I present to you: MANIC MINER.
Look up dissociation disorders. You may be suffering from something like that. Fortunately, like depression, it is temporary. Unfortunately, like depression, it can also come and go as it pleases depending upon a variety of mental factors and stimuli.
Anyone else have these moments where they feel like they're being suffocated? It happens to me once in a while when sleeping. I anyways wake up all sweaty when it happens.
I just love that this is even a thing. By chance, on one planet there appears a species that isn't happy with just surviving day to day. Instead they start plugging cybernetic implants into rats just because they need something to occupy themselves with
Usually, when I'm very sick, I start to have powerful hallucinations. I start seeing things, hearing voices and literally feeling touches on my skin. The worst one was when anthropomorphic letters and numbers occupied my bed and made me get out of it, all while yelling and threatening me. I emotionally broke down right there and I was a wreck for like one day.
I also see things like bugs or little animals trying to get away from me in my bed, or floor, but when I check is nothing there and never was. This happens occasionally, regardless of my mental of physics health.

This was the worst dream I have ever had in some time and I'm pretty sure it was because of those shitty mspaint pictures that are posted here of the man and machine fused into warmachiens and stuff
That fucking movie about sleep paralysis convinced me that it is indeed a big baiting competition. I've never seen any of that shit, and I have sleep paralysis weekly. You finding a bunch of people who have similar experiences is coincidence, and there's a million people out there who have sleep paralysis and don't see the same shit. Do not fall for confirmation bias just so you can have a good spook.
The problem with conventional plastic is that it's either too soft to be able to insert into the body, or it's too hard and causes scaring
yes Deus Ex HR was sort of based on reality in that regard.. The plastic used in neural implants has a glass transition temperature when hard materials become flexible.just a bit below body temperature, so you can insert it, and so that it becomes flexible and doesn't cause scarring.
It always feels odd kicking back into normalcy after get those sorts of thoughts.
Like I have some secret that I'm lucky to have hidden from everyone.
Anyone else try to think normal thoughts around other people because you're inexplicably-convinced that other people can read your mind?
What the fuck does it feel like to not feel your eye? Or move it for that matter?
Since watching this video, I've become really conscious of how many micromovements my eyeballs are doing every second.
The scariest thing in my life is to lie in bed and listen to my own heartbeat.
It's a constant reminder of my mortality and that one day, it'll stop
So even if humanity becomes immortal cyborgs or we upload our brains, what then?
What do we even do then?
What is there to do?
Do we just survive?
>when you look into the mirror and realize how you picture yourself is wrong. You're not a person. You are a creased lump of nerveless mush operating a skin mannequin
>You and your loved ones aren't people. You're the casings that house the real people.
>its 2070 and they finally find a way to put your mind into a sweet ass robot body that will live forever
>you wake up after the operation and marvel at your new body and the fact that you'll be alive for easily the next few thousand years if you take care of your body
>doctors say that your old human body will be used as a donor for many other humans in need of parts, and you are okay with that
On your way out of the hospital about to start a new life, you see doctors pushing a gurney down a hallway with a crazy under a white sheet whos thrashing around in a rage. You assume he must be a crazy patient the police brought in, but just as they go into an elevator and the doors close he screams WHERE ARE YOU TAKING ME, in what sounds like your old human voice.
I forgot to mention that you have to be able to put conductive leads on the material somehow, so the material needs to be able to bind to gold or something, or be conductive
which is harder.
>It is unclear if the claims of use of scopolamine in crime is true or not. The drug is known to produce loss of memory of events recently before exposure and sleepiness, similar to the effect of benzodiazepines or alcohol poisoning, but claims of the drug "removing free will" are dubious.
>sometimes when I start to fall asleep it feels like Im floating around in an infinite void
>like ripples and waves of darkness
>floating away into it
its not even that bad tbqh
Sometimes, during dreams, if I'm doing something particularly intensive it will feel as if I'm lacking breath in my dream. Sometimes precipitates waking up, but not always. It's a shame trying to shackled to my dreams when I realize I am dreaming. Trying to stay asleep in that dream world is like trying to stay at the bottom of a deep pool wearing a flotation device.
You know what was a huge missed opportunity in SOMA?
Besides everything else?
You never got chased by other copies of you.
>Two tiny red dots at the other end
>He can see you
>You can hear your own voice getting infuriated and a little bit scared
>"DON'T YOU FUCKING LEAVE ME HERE CATHERINE."
>"I'M THE REAL ONE! FUCK YOUR COIN TOSS."
>You go hide
His anger drops, now he's just sad and alone
"Please, don't leave me here."
Man, why do the new Cybermen have to look like total shit?
I get they were trying to go retro, but the sunken cheekbones of the AU Cybermen made them look way more intimidating.
/x/ used to be really good with a million creepypasta and story threads.
I haven't been back in a few years, but I was put off last time because it had become just government conspiracy shit and 'help me summon my tulpa' garbage.
To be young again and experience all the fresh OC. Bit depressing really.
Why are we so shit as a species
The fuck is even the point
>just outright eating the toes
>not scraping the soles of the feet and peeling the skin slowly after inducing them into an extended paralysis
Up your fucking game, shitlord.
They're screenshots from a website that lets you look at security cameras owned by people too stupid to know how to use proper net security (aka changing the password from the default like they're told)
>Dreams sometimes take place in recurring areas
>Beach area with all kinds of loosely assembled wooden structures and huts/housing
>Little skin/sand colored octopus someone ends up attaching self to my arm
>It fucking merges into my arm
>Go to take it out
>Can feel sinewy, barbed tentacles resisting as I forcefully try to remove it
>Eventually get it out, dream continues
When I did wake up, I hadn't even fallen asleep on my arm or anything.
Condemned has a level like that
This. I get it when I'm drifting off to sleep on occasion and find it kind of fun.
When I was a kid I was able to get this sensation that my bed was rocking back and forth, swinging in an arc so that it felt like I was almost upside down at time. Eventually I figured out how to control it and it was like an amusement park ride.
>mfw I watched a video of a lobotomy for the first time
What's the point to literally anything?
Maybe we evolved because the universe doesn't know jack shit either.
Maybe the point of living is to figure out the purpose of dying.
You can get off the ride at any time.
That means they did test it and they found jack shit, but they can't scientifically call people claiming otherwise complete fucking liars because drugs have different effects on different people and it's only virtually impossible, not literally impossible.
We try to figure out and explore the universe while maintaining our morality and ethics. Seems like a fairly good goal.
>suddenly very aware of the feeling of my eyeballs snugly in their sockets.
augh god make it stop
I had a dream last night that really disturbed me. It was kinda like this medical doll thing. Some entrepreneur or something made an AI of a girl and put it in this creepy rubber doll looking thing. Then as a demonstration to the public and his stockholders her tied it to a chair and lit it on fir to prove he created a robot with "a personality" as he said it, a robot that feels. It was pretty disturbing hearing it and seeing her thrash about. I don't usually have scary dreams but when I do they are always crazy. Most have happened when I was lucid dreaming too which is even more scary, just this feeling of my entire being being assaulted, or invaded. Or getting shot in the head and having all my sensations mixed up, such a unique feeling.

C'mon guys, gotta do the classics.
I don't know if that's really fucking cool or absolutely terrifying
