Urge to Stare at Your Hands
|Urge to Stare at Your Hands|
As you wander through your trip, you are suddenly very aware of your hands. They seem so fascinating... like a little roller coaster. You can always take another turn... around the loop... over the knuckle...
You struggle to remain focused.
(You may wonder why you can actually attack, with your weapon, a feeling that you're having. Yup, you certainly may wonder that. We won't stop you.)
You stare at your hands, fascinated, and walk right into a wall. A very *significant* wall. Ouch! Oof!
You stare at your hands, admiring your fingernails. You bring them closer to your eyes and discover your depth perception is off. Ooh! Ow!
You suddenly find yourself able to hear the sound of one hand clapping, and it totally blows your mind. Ouch! Ooh! Ugh!
You wrench your attention away from your hands and focus on how awesome it is that your heart beats all day, every day, even when you're not thinking about it.
You wrench your attention away from your hands and try to focus elsewhere.
You suddenly get distracted by a passing dust mote, which could very well be a metaphor for the entire universe. (FUMBLE!)

Occurs during the Mediocre Trip.
- The opening part detailing your hands being so fascinating ("You can always take another turn...") is most likely a referenece to the movie The Undead, the subject of a Mystery Science Theater 3000 episode. In this movie, a psychical researcher (don't ask) uses very similar phrases in the process of hypnotizing a woman back to medieval times (again, don't ask).
- The critical message refers to the Koan "Two hands clap and there is a sound; what is the sound of one hand clapping?"
