At the Psychiatrist

by Christopher T. Dabrowski

Translated from Polish by Filip Kiełbowicz

"I felt an awkward dismay. I was my own father, son and some god-damned immaterial being. Then a part of me died, the one which was my son. Then it reincarnated. So many people wanted something from me. I couldn’t take it. Reguests, complaints, maledictions, supplications, thanks... And things they were doing for me. Madness! I feel something more, something that surpasses me. I have got a feeling that everything depends on me. Doctor, what is wrong with me?"

"I’m afraid you are God," the psychiatrist said.

"That’s impossible! If I were God I wouldn’t torture myself like this!"

"Would you make all of this disappear?"

"Yes doctor! What a great idea!"

Suddenly an absolut, inseminated with emptiness darkness came. We stopped existing.
