Induced Coma

is increasingly common in medical procedures.

Patients lapsing back to real time claim it’s a sweet space.

Coma-land.

Parallel world, noiseless, zero technology.

You can hang there for a long time like Jesus without nails.

But isn’t this coma-land of yours just a degraded version of Nirvana?

Absolutely.
