The Russian Sleep Experiment
Now this has to be one of the most grotesque and frightening stories I’ve ever heard of. There has been some debate on whether this actually happened or not, some say it did and others say it didn’t. Some say that this was a cleverly crafted story and that it’s all made up.
But then you have to wonder if an experiment went this wrong that you were a part of, would you want it exposed to the world?
Psychological Sleep Experiment Gone Wrong?
Towards the end of the 1940’s Soviet researches got the great idea to test a sleep experiment. It was infamously dubbed the Russian Sleep Experiment on 5 prison inmates.
All these inmates had to do was stay awake for 15 days. That is with the help of some gas of course and they would be freed.
Easy enough right?
The inmates were locked up in an air tight room. The room had 2 way mirrors so that the researchers could observe the inmates.
The first few days went without anything going down. But then about the 5th day they started acting a bit out of control.
On the 9th day is when all hell broke loose….
Check out the video and you’ll see what I mean!
What really stuck out to me was when the office asked “what are you”!
The reply sent chills down my spine, even though they say this story is make believe, the reply was still freaky.
“Have you forgotten so easily? We are YOU, we are the madness that lurks within you all, begging to be free at every moment in your deepest animal mind. We are what you hide from in your beds every night. We are what you sedate into silence and paralysis when you go into the nocturnal haven where we cannot tread.”
Now tell me that doesn’t creep you out at least a little bit?
