Damn I hate this thread due to the fact that this is scary shit! Especially
the part about children afraid of falling asleep because they're stream of
consciousness would end. I'm going to have a tough time going to sleep
tonite. If sleep=death then death wasn't all it was cracked up to be so
perhaps there's no need to fear it.
