What does it feel like, not to be you? Well, I think you would answer, “I have no idea”. This is true because one’s consciousness is one’s own experience and nobody else. But what happens when somebody else’s consciousness is in place of one’s own consciousness? What are the experiences that this person will experience?
I have a story of a guy named Terit from the valleys of Sycamore. He is currently in danger of being trapped in a dark territory; a territory that has haunted his life for so long. How can he save his self if he is no longer himself? Come what may, but a seer already warned him saying, “The gods are after you!”.
In his village, Terit is nowhere to be seen. He had disappeared on 22nd April 1894. Four days have passed now, and everyone including his family has lost hope of finding him.
“He was always spotted alone; you would find him sitting watching the birds fly, at other times playing his guitar and at night just watching stars”, a villager was heard nearby talking to another villager.
05:11 am on the plains of Soren:
Terit is spotted lying on his back hopelessly, looking up into the sky. His eyes’ gaze fixed on one location of the sky, towards the west of the sky where he sees four moons shining bright and while surprised of what he just saw, he turned to see another brighter light illuminating from the east-and this time it was four suns all rising! He tried to move his whole body, but he felt heavier. He felt lost and confused about how he got there.
05:11 am -22nd April 2019-Dar es Salaam city:
David wakes up in his room and sits on his bed thinking. A dream he had today was different and pondering its meaning was the only task he had. He takes his dream book to write the following details: Early morning, today on 22nd April 2019; I had this dream that I perceive may have a meaning. I was lying on my back in a strange land looking up towards the sky. As I turned my face to the right, I saw four moons all on the west shining bright during the night and turning to my left; I saw brighter light coming from four rising suns in the east where the sky meets the land.
