The way outside Share | orions daughter posted:11/8/2011 8:45:31 AM The way outside was a book written by Brian Aldin, a science fiction writer, [although i am of the impression that science fiction has some basis in fact]. The book is centred around 6 individuals 4 men 2 women who are in a house, in no particular location. These individuals get up and go to the store room to get their food for the day andspend their days playing cards and amusing themselves, but never going out and never getting bored, also they dont question anything, have no idea what they are doing there or why.One night one of the men Harley felt decidely uneasy and made his mind up to stay awake, it was at this point he sees another of the men leaving the bedroom and decides to follow him. Harley followed this man into the store room, and got there in time to see the man disappear through a wall that has swung open.Deeply worried harley rushes back to the bedroom to alert his other room buddy, "Something is wrong, there is a way outside, we got to find out what we are, either we are some victims of an experiment, or we are all monsters, but as he finishes his sentence the guy in front of him disolves into a kind of stick insect.Harley succeeds in finding his way outside, he is gripped with a desire to find out once and for all what is going on who is he, and why have we been cheated of life inside that house. he see buildings and runs towards them, he pushes open the door to a lighted room.A man sitting behind the desk remarks to harley its taken you four years to figure out how to get out of there, the earth is in conflic with insect creatures called Nititians, the come to earth and kill human beings and take their place, They maintain their form by self hypnosis, the are conditioned to behave exactly like humans.a group of 5 Nititians were captured and kept in a restricted envoirement, one human was placed amongst them as an observer. Because the human sat around doing nothing so did the Nititians, they never questioned where their food came from and there was no sexual feelings amongst the mixed sex group, they just merely accepted this situation, The man harley saw disappear was the human clocking off for the night, harley then realises the implications of what the man has just said, harley then shouts "but i am human, i am not........to which he then feels his body dissolve he turns into an insect. I think many of us here can relate to Harley, the majority of the planet is filled with hypnotised humans, who simply exist because they are told to, it is as simple as that.Omen502 posted:11/8/2011 12:36:15 PM Ok..

Sometimes one can look too deeply into things, like it says at the beginning it is a story written by Brian as ficticious, the message is pretty clear though, nothing is as it seems, and if anyone was to go a wandering around the local foodhall check out the majority of half asleep people, i think i would prefer to be in pain for the rest of my life at least then i know i am alive and awake......godlypunk posted:11/8/2011 3:00:56 PM Too true OD.sickboyfool posted:11/9/2011 1:51:01 AM yeah would love to read that cant find shit on it thoumonica1968 posted:11/9/2011 8:31:22 AM so sorry everyone i made a monumental spelling mistake i found the book and the author is Brian Aldiss, omg, oops, the book was written years ago but i am sure you can find it on amazon, the man was ahead of his time i dont normally go for this genre but it was recommended to me.....enjoy [orions daugher is me, but my computer died a death and i lost my memory stick with all my info on,until yesterday so appologies for any confusion]monica1968 posted:11/9/2011 8:31:58 AM In Reply To:sickboyfool posted:11/9/2011 1:51:01 AM yeah would love to read that cant find shit on it thouthe way outside by Brian Aldiss.....sorrysickboyfool posted:11/9/2011 10:54:53 AM http://koapp.narod.ru/english/fantast/book49.htm has a very long exerpt from the book Please log in or become a member to add a post.
