|Super short fantasy about avoidance and imagination.|
I was walking to my truck this morning. When it was as if i was turned upside down with my feet firmly planted on the ceiling. and this was only the begging of my confusion for u see the ceiling was not truly there at all, in fact it was like walking upside down 10 feet in the air on a completely transparent surface the sky below me the ground above me, and at that time all rules and laws of the physical world left me and I felt that i was capable of anything. So I began to run and run faster than any human on earth is capable of. And I ran and ran and just kept on running for what seemed like days but In ever once felt tired nor did I wish to stop it felt like flying. It felt like freedom, and at the very pentacle of that moment the moment in which i was happiest. I realized that the one thing I could not do was to jump, now don't get me wrong I could in fact use my legs to push off of this substance, or sort of improvised floor I suppose u could call it, but the ground being directly above me and the limitations of my human strength and abilities being cast off of me made it very clear that if i were to jump that I would smash head first into the ground and with the realization that if I hit the ground or an unmovable object being what the ground represented at this time, I would surly die. For u see I was moving faster than I had ever moved before. And not just while running either, I was very sure that I was in fact moving faster than my physical body had ever been pra-paled by any and all means of travel. So it was at the moment I decided to stop running I just stood there for a brief moment. Thinking about nothing. Thinking about everything and I simply fell backwards slowly not bothering to catch myself at all and at the instance in which I expected a collision between Floor and myself there was nothing, nothing at all. And so I just kept on falling and falling. Further and faster upwards away from the ground away from the one thing I could not control or overcome it was if I willed myself away from the only thing that offered any sort of resistance to me at all and I did not stop or consider stopping, because after all were should I stop. Eventually I fell away from the earth itself and all the heavens and Majesties of space were before me, and yet I remained as I was falling upwards farther and faster each moment content to fall away forever and ever, or until It was my decision to stop, and it was at that moment I had yet another realization. What if i could not stop? I had never done this before what if I was unable to stop myself from this eternity. This self imposed self allowed eternal drift through time and space, and for a moment i was afraid. So In that fear I decided to fall forever and always. I closed my eyes and fell never once did I bother to sneak a peek and take in the beauty's and the wonders of the unknown. No not once for u see I was content doing the very thing I knew that I could and wished not to be interrupted with the possibilities of things i could not... Tweet
