So, Unit E4251, why are you here to see me today? ---Because I am rotten. Rotten? What do you mean by that? ---I am rotten. My brain is a failure. A mutation. "Society", including ---myself however, seems treat it as such. You know, disgusting. Rotten. Now I don't believe that. Why do you think you're a mutation? ---I don't really think there's a reason for my body's malfunctioning. I ---just think that it happened, without reason. Haha, like you're some pointless fluke floating around in the galaxy! ---Yes, exactly. I take it you're an atheist then? ---Um, basically yes. Okay. So anyway, what has caused you to believe you're a mutation? ---I can't get my voice out of my head. It drains everything. Makes it very ---hard to concentrate. Voice? Do you think you might be a schizophrenic? ---I don't have enough experience with schizophrenia to determine ---whether or not I have the illness, however, I do believe that this is my ---voice, and not a hallucination. I'm sure anyone could be familiar with ---this? The regular, worded-thought voice. So does this problem only cause difficulties in concentration? ---Depends how you look at it. No in that it does affect my entire person. ---But, technically, yes, because when this ---voice (the thought in my mind that consists of all the shit that I have ---learned and now base everything on) gives me something similar to ---tunnel vision, or like a black orb over my head clouding reality. Do you ---think that's normal, doc? Sure. ---Really? Does everything everyone says create a sudden, awkward ---silence? Like there's some weird coldness to everything they say? ---What about living only in a room, or a car, or a backyard but not even ---being able to see the other wall because everything seems faded. Of ---course I am going to think a lot under these circumstances! Why is ---everyone else so "normal"? Sure, they're all unique, but they have a ---vital connection that I lack. I begin to think too much, and now I realize ---everything I know is stupid. I am 'actually' stupid. Now why do you think you're stupid? ---Because my head is in a blur. Would you consider yourself lonely? ---Lonely? Lonely, let's see... I have friends, but not where I live now. On ---normal weekdays, most of my socialization takes place in my bedroom, ---on my computer. No I'm not lonely though. I provide myself with ---enough company. I feel kind of pathetic because of that. Do you believe that Ritalin can help you with your problem? ---No. Why is that? ---Because concentration is far from the mass of my problem. Then what is your problem?!
