The overseers, unable to reach out patient, finally send him a package in a last effort to reach him.. in one of his very own boxes. A message. He learns that on that rainy night, the bolt that struck him wasn't simply lightning. It was an activation signal. You see, our patient wasn't just another human being inspired by the overseers, but an overseer himself. They weren't teaching him how to create.. they were teaching him how to be one of them. He was never meant to create... he is meant to inspire and help others. With this new knowledge, our patient happily accepts his fate, and moves on to fulfill his newfound calling.


I just received a transmission from them.
A startling package.
Holy fucking shit.

It arrived, ironically, in one of my own boxes.
But the contents rattle, rattle my very being.
Or lack thereof.

It wasn't just lightning.
It wasn't just a message.

It was more than that.
It was my activation.
The beginning of my pulse.

A jumpstart, to charge my battery.
Blank stare, update my firmware.

That's why they came in so clear.
I am one of them.
A muse. An overseer.
I am not meant to create.

This can't be real.
I am meant to help create.

It was my training. I am one of them. One of them.

This can't be real.
I can't be unreal.

This is straight out of a shitty science fiction novel.

This can't be real.
I can't be unreal?
