No One Is Going To Believe You.

INVISIBLE MAN

[in-vizuh-buh l]

adjective
3. not perceptible or discernible by the mind:

[man]

noun, plural men.
1. an adult male person, as distinguished from a boy or a woman.

What if there were invisible people? Sounds crazy, but let’s entertain that thought for a second, that there could be people around that we can’t see. They could walk around whispering in the ears of people, opening doors, moving things from one place to another when your back is turned (keys and wallets would probably be their objects of choice). The list of physical and psychological harm they could cause could go on forever, but again, what if this were true? What if one day out of the corner of your eye, you saw one of them, and then they quickly jumped out of your line of vision?  Worse still is what if they don’t look like people?

What if there was something you ate, drank or somehow ingested, that enabled you to see these “people”, but no one else could? Would you tell someone? If so, then what would you say?  “I saw something, but you can’t see it and now it’s standing right behind you.”  What do you think people would say?  Imagine the hell they could cause you, by saying something quiet enough so that only you could hear.  They could breathe on you at night as you slept or slowly open a door in your home. What do think people would say and do to you if you told?  I put this out there as hypothetical, but not really.  We all know someone who has experienced something like this, if we haven’t experienced it ourselves.

What if you’re not hallucinating, but, are actually able to see things other people can’t?  Society would label you as “crazy” and write off everything you ever told them about these “people.”  I remember what someone once said about calling people crazy…it’s dismissive.

There are things in this world that you can’t explain to people who haven’t witnessed them.  I’m not going to go into a long list of unexplainable happenstances, but, I will leave that door open to be investigated every now and then.  Science is great for explaining what it believes it understands, but any credible scientist should tell you that they don’t understand everything.  So things will happen that people can’t explain at some point in time, and it will be written off as “crazy”, until the day science figures it out.  I’ve always been more afraid of how society treats people they deem as “crazy” as opposed to the “crazy” people themselves.

To wrap this up, there are sounds, we can’t hear (ex: dog whistle).  Scents we can’t smell (I’ll use dogs again for this).  Also things we can’t feel (ex: radiation, viruses, gravity).  Hmmm…so we can tell people that something exists, however, they cannot perceive it.  We just can’t tell them something they cannot perceive does indeed exist.

The scary thing is that if you knew there were actual invisible people in this world, no matter how hard you tried to explain it…

…no one is going to believe you.

Up next week Monday, The Invisible Man.

  1. Yeah, calling someone crazy because you cannot open your mind to their perception is dismissive.

    • I tend to think so. There’s so many things that we just don’t understand. I think of it sometimes as if you speak a different language in a foreign country and you discover that the building you’re in has a time bomb in it set to go off. So you run out to the people and you’re yelling trying to warn them that the bomb is about to explode. They’ll just look at you as if you’re “crazy”, because they haven’t seen what you’ve seen, and they simply don’t understand you.
