Hi Russell

First, about N.L.E. Okay, very clever. When you revealed what the past title stood for, it occurred to me that NDE (Near Death Experience) is also an...oh damn, can't think of the word for it. Same letters, but jumbled up....

Acronym? No, but NDE is a TLA (Three Letter Acronym).

Anagram? Yeah, I think that's it.

...anyway, NDE is an anagram for END, which is what *I* think happens at death.

Out of body viewing? Think of the last time you saw your significant other. I'll wait.

= = =

Okay, did you imagine it from first person perspective (like POV porn or a "first person shooter" type video game? Or did you see yourself AND your serioso? Probably second person (ie you saw yourself from outside). Same type of deal.

People have described seeing things like a vent on top of a tall machine (visible from their near-ceiling perspective). The vent wasn't there.

Tunnel vision? White light? That's your brain as it loses oxygen.

About this week's story:

At first, I thought "okay, heads passing by. Don't assUME the bodies are attached. Maybe a whimsical serial killer on the roof with a fishing pole?

You mentioned that he saw them from the corner of his eye. If the heads passing by were all female, he'd have been seeing them with heripheral vision.

Okay, thasall for now.

Russel - I'm not one for comment on these usually, but I have to this time. Excellent story! I have to say I felt a definite sensation of dread as Paul approached the currents to open them.

Thanks for the podcast,

Well, I was definitely freaked out by the people in the window. Especially when they gathered around it. And I thought a psycho killer in the window would be bad. Yeesh!

I have to say, this was probably one of my favorite tales thus far.I love the psycological aspect of these stories so much!

Keep up the fantastic work!

Hi Russell,

I found your podcast a couple of weeks ago and have been marathoning your stories ever since. I have to say, though, it was a bad idea to listen to this one last night before I went to sleep. There was definitely some tossing and turning and darting eyes.

Thanks for putting your work out there for all to enjoy. You make my daily barn chores breeze by.
