OK? OK? Something very much like this showed up in Delta Green: Targets of Opportunity*. Which is a roleplaying supplement for the game Call of Cthulhu. Which is a game that explores mind-destroying cosmic horror, and the best way to futilely delay its inevitable final victory over our weak human concepts of ‘logic’ and ‘sanity.’ They put that in there to freak out the people playing the game, because it takes a lot to freak out your average Call of Cthulhu player, these days.
No, I don’t know why this freaked me out, either. Maybe because I wasn’t expecting it.
