I fell to the ground as the car passed my body since it’s clear to me now that I’m really dead and that I’m just a spirit wandering in a forest, trying to find peace. People had always told me that, “If you didn’t die peacefuly, your spirit will be trapped in the real world forever,” but I had always rejected that belief as being too idiotic for someone as superior as me.
Indeed, humans are the superior creatures but sometimes, we act like a fool. Murders, wars, terror attacks, all had been done in the name of religion and their motherland. It just seemed like they just can’t think rationally anymore. Walking back into the forest, I feel that the most reasonable thing to do is to get back to my body and somehow find out what is it that is preventing me from going to the other side.
It doesn’t seem logical that someone who is dead would feel tired but I did. I started walking back to my ‘body’ for just 5 minutes before I decided that I will just walk along the main road instead. “There’s nothing to fear when you are dead,” I said to myself. Somehow, I had just accepted that I’m now a spirit, wandering aimlessly in the middle of nowhere, trying to answer questions in my mind.
Then, the simulation theory came back into my mind. I remembered someone explaining to me that when you die, the simulation restarts, and you are reborn as someone else. I wondered to myself, “What if I’m only glitching and fail to restart?” That was when I felt something knocking me onto the road, hitting my face and strong winds started to blow on my face.
I woke up in a hospital. Apart from something that seemed like a scar on my neck, everything else seemed normal. However, I didn’t like the fact that I’m now a baby.
