And what will it look like?
I will tell you exactly what to expect and when to expect it. If its gonna happen at all this year.
It will happen either May 29th or Dec 21st.
So then what will it look like...
In the movie Eraserhead
, when the guy goes over to the girls house, and she has an episode of some
kind, and the mother has to pet her. To calm her down. (She brushes her hair I think) That is an example of a temporary loss of sentience signal.
So what she looks like there is she has lost sentience, and is now operating on instincts only. She is for all intents and purposes, a human ape. She
can't speak, and she would be confused and maybe in a panic.
And anyone might be affected and it might happen at any time of the day or night. You might wake up and find all your family members in that condition
or just one or none. Only 1 out of 35 people might be immune.
Its not a disease and its not contagious but a couple days later, anyone like that would probably be carrying a host of diseases, and a human bite is
as bad as a komodo dragon in terms of infection.
And chances are its permanent, so anyone like that, is already dead. You should assume that. You could keep them as a pet, but they will never
recover, and probably would just make your chances of survival more slim.
My advice would be to let nature take care of its own, and seek out normal company in the ranks of the survivors and not burden yourself with someone
who is mentally no longer human.
Let your belief in an afterlife convince you that you will see those people again some time, but at that moment, they are gone. If you don't, then
they will at some point wander away, attack you, and do what animals normally do anyways. You might have a pet dog for instance, and it might be the
most faithful dog in the world, until a bitch in heat is across the street. All of a sudden you are mister nobody now aren't you?
You were just a meal ticket, but now you are a nobody.
I would consider carefully bringing a pet. Pets can bark, and they will get you found.
So outside, cars will be driving into things. People will not know how to open the doors or get out of their seat belt. Soon, a few buildings will be
on fire but horns, and car alarms, and car crashes if it happens during the day and if it happens at night you might not notice till morning. But cabs
will crash at night.
Planes, cars, buses, trains, anything moving will crash, except for 1 out of 35.
People will be walking around in a daze, making sounds like animals. They will have their mouths gaping and be exhibiting human instinctual behaviors,
which if you have not seen what those look like, they are disturbing to look at. Like Alzheimer's patients.
You will hear breaking glass. You might hear a gun shot or two. But car horns, car crashes, car alarms, and fires. The radio might have no one on it,
except for 1 out of 35 stations, and the person on the radio, will sound like the guy from the movie
There is a very slim chance that people will go catatonic like in The Happening
and that state is also
examined in Eraserhead as well, where the dad temporarily goes catatonic, and the grandma is catatonic. Same part in the movie in the parents
Eraserhead, to see what human instinctual behaviors look like, Pontypool, to see what sort of radio broadcast you might hear, the Happening for a
worst case scenario, where the helpers in the soul catcher machine, puppet the zombies to off themselves in perhaps an act of mercy, since their fate
will not be pleasant.
They might not even know how to take their clothes off to crap. They will die of thirst in a week, if they are not near water. And die of hunger in 3
weeks. Die of exposure if its cold, die in a fire if in a house, die of thirst if in a car, and die of Dysentery, and Cholera, and infection in most
So thats my best guess and the best guess of those who studied it.
