“On Not Being Seen”

I honestly can’t explain my thought processes on this. I do understand why, I just can’t explain it. What does this have to do with Conor’s mother and the monster? I know, but that would spoil it. Why does Conor want to be punished? Well, one theory is that when people are sad and depressed, they want pain. And the…

“Belief—The Second Tale”
