This is the single creepiest thing I have ever listened to. The implications are truly soul-shattering. Every moment of your life is being observed by invisible (to us) disembodied heads, the souls of your ancestors and others intently watching your every act. I listened to this a month after I was discharged from the U.S. Navy, sitting alone at night by a campfire in the Ponderosa Pine forest of Arizona's Mogollon Rim country. August, 1979. I didn't sleep that night.

Wow. In that solitary setting I can definitely understand why it was unsettling. That would be on par with staying alone in an old gothic style mansion listening to any one of CBSRMT’s creepier episodes. Thanks for sharing!


H.G. Wells adaptation about a school experiment gone wrong with interesting consequences and view on society. Hmmm. Good listen on a rainy night.
