I'm trying to wrap my mind around it, to fit the pieces together and form something coherent. But each time I try it shatters me, bringing the grand scheme crashing down and leaving me where I started, only with more scars and more questions. They insist it must be obtainable and in perfect symmetry, but I'm beginning to have my doubts. I have yet nothing to show for my efforts, but alas I must complete this journey. I have turned over every stone and there is no where left to turn. Paradox embrace is my only option...
I have tried beating them with sticks, shoving them off into the pits, and even jumping on their heads, but there seems to be no physical way to hurt these creatures. Their howls echo loudly in my skull, leaving me a little less willing to continue on each time. Did that shadowy man sick them on me? Are they like him? What is he even? For now I will just have to avoid them, and see if I can make my way through this strange place.
I remember now! The shadow man; I knew I had seen him before! He was there, just outside my bedroom window while I laid awake in bed as a child, in the audience that time I froze in fear during my school performance, behind me as I quickly scrambled for my keys to my house. He was much smaller then. Barely humanoid. Somehow he is larger now. And stronger! I've tried to hide. I've tried to run. He still found me though, no longer hiding in the darkness, chasing me even in broad daylight. I have to do something...
Is this path the right answer? Should I embrace it, or will it embrace me so tightly that I won't be able to breath anymore? I feel it inside me, building tunnels in my skull, and the echos of my tormentors' screams don't bother me so much anymore. In fact, sometimes I don't even notice them. But will these tunnels become chasms so wide there'll be nothing holding my brains in place? Maybe it's exactly what they're hoping for. I must figure this out, even if it's the last thing I do.
