Beers, Clifford - Auditory hallucinations and false voices
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
Clifford Beers – A Mind that found itself
The part of my brain which controls the power of speech was seriously affected, and was soon to be further disabled by my ungovernable thoughts. Only an occasional word did I utter.
Certain hallucinations of hearing, or "false voices," added to my torture. Within my range of hearing, but beyond the reach of my understanding, there was a hellish vocal hum. Now and then I would recognize the subdued voice of a friend; now and then I would hear the voices of some I believed were not friends. All these referred to me and uttered what I could not clearly distinguish, but knew must be imprecations.
Ghostly rappings on the walls and ceiling of my room punctuated unintelligible mumblings of invisible persecutors.
