People Admit What They'd Do If They Ever Received A Message From Aliens

We don't know what's out in space. Most of the popular science fiction in our culture revolves around getting out into the universe and poking around, seeing what we can mess with. Mostly, these tales end with horrifying, and people eating, results, must to the delight of the viewing audience. What many authors and directors might not have considered, however, is what if it was all a test? What if someone was waiting for us to get off world? That's what many people got to speculate when they answered Reddit user, r/Dingyps's, question:

How would you feel if Nasa discovered a sign on mars that read, "Congratulations humans, level 1 has been completed"?

We Can All Agree, Water Levels Are The Worst

well, thankfully because its Mars we know level 2 wont be a water level

Pay To Play

"We hope that the billions of dollars spent to send men to Mars has filled you with a sense of pride and accomplishment. Please look forward to the quintillions needed to unlock level 3."

U$29.99 for Beyond Mars DLC with level 3 and a new skin

It Would Make Morning Commutes Easier

If we're lucky, completing level 1 means we get to level up our stats and get some perks or something.

Maybe unlock Teleportation.

Whatever We've Done Still Counts As Progress

I'd be pissed unless it was also a save point. . .

To Be Fair, We DID Make It To Mars

A sense of pride and accomplishment.

What Language, Though?

Depends on what language it's written in.

Ancient Sumerian - Intrigued, but not super excited as it's a language that's been dead for thousands of years.

Modern English - Super f---ing excited because that means they are still around somewhere.

Musk, That Ol' Prankster

I'd assume that Elon sent it there in his roadster.

Setting Up For Success

"why didn't we get one of these for sequencing the genome, discovering calculus/special and general relativity/quantum mechanics?"

Because you're still in the character [creator] and tutorial then.

A Moment Of Insight

Wait, we went from grunting cavemen all the way to interplanetary space flight, and that's only level 1?

Dear God, what to we have to do to beat level 2?

Level Up System: Confirmed

1: Us

2: Star Trek

3: Gods

At level 3 our science would be so advanced it would look like magic to a group of regular people. I'm talking reality warping, astral beings made of light, knowing everything, time travel, instant movement across the universe, rooms so advanced they'd look and feel like real life but are hard light projections, instant transference of infinite knowledge, creating stars, etc.

What Was The Moon, Then?

So.. going to the moon didn't count for sh-t?

civic19s

The Moon was the end of the tutorial.

Dia

Sounds Very Encouraging

I'd feel relieved that the alien overlords aren't out to destroy us.

SeeDeez

They just want to make sure it's a challenge, first. Stomping ants is no fun.

To Be Fair, They Are Inviting Humans Up

Those martians are gonna get so liberated and don't even Realize it.

Poor dumb bastards

_BabylegsOHoulihan

What If It's Not Real?

I would know at that point we are in a simulation lol.

TDeath21

We Have To Gather HOW Many Hidden Stars?

"This is just level 1? The grind in this game is unreal."

Is This Game Better Than Fortnite?

I would probably think it was a prank and go on playing whatever game I'm going after at the time.

Marcusaralius76

Thought, It Feels Like We've Done This Before

Isn't this essentially what the Monolith was in 2001: A Space Odyssey?

_loiterrat

Wait, They Watch Us Everywhere?

Oh f-ck.

I've forever been paranoid that we live in a dollhouse, and that would just make it seem even more so; someone is watching us.

Some People Need To Have A Little Temper Tantrum

To paraphrase a short story:

There will be a lot of protests, riots, suicides.

Then life will go back to normal.

Sam-Gunn

We've Neglected The Obvious

Gonna be a bit terrified for the end boss

Pangolinsareodd

Be A True Gamer. No Save Run.

I would probably try to quick save before the impending boss fight.

SuperDuper125

Of Course, Who's The Final Boss?

A bit disappointed that Level 1 didn't have a final boss..

NappingYG

I mean, if the end of level 1 is coming soon, I can think of at least oooooooneeee guy we could consider the final boss...

As much as we'd like to assume spirits, ghosts, and paranormal happenings are relegated to movies and books, plenty of real-life stories abound.

Have you ever heard something go "bump" in the night unexpectedly? How did you react? Did you say something about it?

How about something that was amazing but completely unexplainable? Many people experience moments like this. And they are endlessly fascinating to hear about.

There are three different types of comas we can have. One is called toxic-metabolic encephalopathy, which is caused by illness or infection across the body. There's the medically induced coma which is caused by medical professionals to temporary cause a deep state of unconsciousness. Then there's the persistent vegetative state where the patient is the unaware of their surroundings and unable to movement.

However, after u/Pilot_Mosley asked Reddit, we're not so sure that every coma patient is completely unaware of their surroundings. Many people reported hearing their family or the nurses talking to them. Some said the had vivid dreams, only to learn those events actually happened.

Redditor Pilot_Mosley wanted to know what actually is going on in the unconscious mind and how it changed them after:

"Patients who woke up from a long coma, what's your story? How different were things?"

Read on to find out how the coma effected these people, whether it was a day or years.
