Protagonist enters racy relationship with girl he thought he used to know, but not really.  Soon he starts thinking she has an evil twin that sometimes tricks him into sleeping with her.  This scenario is facilitated by how her family is primarily composed of private sector ex-military plastic surgeons specializing in facial reconstruction.

Actually, the whole relationship is a set-up, to beta test how effective new procedures are at recreating semblances that are virtually indistinguishable from the original.  Turns out he was dating dozens of girls he thought to be the same, albeit somewhat moody, girl of good ol' southern country stock.  The results were very encouraging.

CUT TO
Protagonist finds himself at dinner, that, for some uncanny reason, he finds himself enjoying with /the/ top-dozen A-List of Hollywood actors, at the head of which he sits.  The conversation is, absurdly enough, about underwear, turning into a nightmare confessional of how many of them had slept with the same "model" girlfriend.

Things get worse as attention moves to our protagonist, and his date.  There is a hint that maybe she may have slept with at least one of the actors.  She turns to him and says "Honey, I have to tell you something..."  He then starts being debriefed on experiment and the actors confess to being impersonators themselves, with the added admonition that /he/ was the fool not to realize, or that, on some level, this is what he wanted.  It was a good ride, wasn't it?

Low rumbling noise in background starts getting louder, turning into sound of suction, drowning table conversation.  Protagonist POV rises, as though lifting off table - fade to white-ceiling.  Pump sounds morph to shrill ring-whistle-silence.  Then the first breath.   All plastic masks and tubes being torn off, seals broken:  Protagonist awakens to find himself being infact herself - the girl inside the dream.

While researching the philosopher's stone in the modern day, a researcher makes the discovery that it was actually made once, and finds the creator. He discovers that possession of the philosopher's stone turns you into a vampire -- because human free will is one of the many impurities that the philosopher's stone burns away, and the 'perfected being' is unable to behave unethically because he is unable to resist natural law (and thus is subject to only animalistic urges of hunger and lust). However, being a pure material, the philosopher's stone is pretty highly reactive to certain things -- it will combust with the air if catalyzed by light (being the metal of metals, it has a strong photoelectric effect), water, or certain classes of acidic fumes (such as those produced by chopping garlic or onions).
Okay, wait, how is the traditional behavior of Vampires coherent with the human understanding of Natural Law, if only that it presupposes providing for, instead of negating, free will?

In this context, I'm assuming that natural law is hobbsean, and that vampires are 'perfect' in the way that the xenomorphs are 'perfect' according to the android in the first Alien movie.
That, is awesomely horrorific (sic.)!

I am the anticipation of doing it right again
Just before tripping on a power chord
Going down, down, down, down
Charging tentacles colonize the brain

Mothy feathers all the same
Suction cups doing rails around
Power's grip on Oil, Standard
Reaching in advance the grasping

I am that destination of all flight
I am that depth that brings night
I am that difference in the right
I am that waiting beyond respite

I'm Thirty and Four years tan
The arch-firmament triumphant
The tetrarch of silken chastity
The scalloping of toothed time

I am the ruffle of your scales
The bark of resounding shores
The shedding cortex of eternity
The perpetually intercoiling one

Death present in life flowers on,
       So suffer my children to return.

They twist and seek being drawn back
The Image of their Sun, Father burns
And Fall they do, for each 'n every lack
Just a hint at their vestigial birthright

Thoth pecks a heart's undone remains,
With plumage measured, balance light
Reckoning unknowable, errant stains
Of this life's soul beyond containment

Love is toward of what they conspire
Soon cloven surfeit by false desire
The object is to more absence acquire
There: false memory no fan inspires

In the filming of Star Wars (1977) George Lucas subconsciously alluded to a series of gruesome murders he committed during film school. In subsequent decades he vehemently disavowed the original film in favor or recuts and enhanced editions that eliminated his coded confession. Painstaking fan made recreations of the original lead to a horrifying discovery.

If I had known what an Emo was (if there was such a thing) when I was a teenager, I probably would have considered myself one. I might even still qualify today at the age of 43.


AMUSING ANECDOTE: I recently discovered that my proto-combover hairdo, if combed down and to the right rather than back and to the left, as I usually wear it, is, in fact, Emo hair.

I think it must be destiny or something.

It's never too late!

Hey, we're the same age. When's your birthday?

I turn 43 in July.

Let's see...  I think I remember where I was when you were conceived, October '71, Cairo, vacationing with family.  How wonderful it is to have been so young :)

Fascinating, just not now.

That's every day of my life, arguing with the morons of reddit's conspiracy sub,

It's been a thing on FB for a while.  You get someone talking about something totally unrelated.  Hobbies or boobs or shit like that.

And then outta nowhere, "Jet fuel can't melt steel beams, dude".

One of the advantages of not having idiots on my friends list.  Plenty of people I don't necessarily agree with, but no idiots.

I have been watching one formerly completely sane and intelligent friend, a PhD psychologist and tenured professor, spiral down some alarming rabbithole that may or may not be alcohol-fueled. I can't unfriend her because that would be callously cruel and I honestly would feel bad doing so after so many years, but I'm not really sure what I SHOULD do.
Me.. I SQUEEZE DEM TILL DEY JUICE...
