In the depths of my being, a strange certainty, deeper than reason, entirely animal in quality, filled me with terror. The same certainty which some beasts-sheep and rats feel before an earthquake. Awakening in me was the soul of the first men on Earth, such as it was before it became totally detached from the universe, when it still felt the truth directly, without the distorting influence of reason- The 'Boss', Zorba the Greek

Six Minutes

"He (my brother Lewis ) was told he had six minutes to get out and he would survive,
but he didn't manage and he was killed."

"They said they would give me dinner in six minutes.
It's been six minutes and it hasn't come yet. (Is there any jelly?)"

"I've been having the strangest dreams lately." *pause*

"I was told that when you die it happens in six minutes.
You lie down and in six minutes you die.
I lay down and in five minutes, I was gone.Just like that."
Who told you this?
"Aunt Dora."

"Take me home, I must go now."
