Dr. Spangler thought he had the solution. He removed all sources of noise from Carla’s house. Then he sat with her all night in the silent living room. In the morning she declared that the voices were gone.
A disturbed Dr. Spangler replied, “No, they’re not.” It was just as Carla described. They spoke separately but as one. Chaos and order in weird unity.
Carla sat watching him, relieved that her head was quiet, but guilty that the doctor was now inflicted.
Spengler ran outside. The voices came with him. He wondered why him? They answered, “Because you’re so smart.”
