Clay Yoksas was a quiet youth on the outside. He never gave a hint
at the turmoil boiling inside of him. He grew up in picture perfect
suburbia with everything a "normal" young kid might want. But, heaped upon his
young conscience was the weight of all the worlds ills. When
he realized that other kids didn't share his thoughts or his obsession with abstract
concepts, he stopped speaking altogether. Trying
to come to grips with the evils of human life and the hopelessness of our
continually deteriorating society, Clay slipped into a meditative state one
night in hopes that he could find some answers to his questions. He
didn't come out of it until one year had passed. But now, he knew what
had to be done. It was time to speak again.
A tough streetwise punk named David Alsing grew up in one of the worst
neighborhoods in the city. Surrounded by crime, gangs, and drugs, David
still maintined his sense of right and wrong. So when he was walking
home late one night and was the unexpected witness to a rape in progress,
David did what his heart told him to and attempted to thwart the 4 men committing
the horrible crime. David, along with the rape victim, was shot with
a .38 caliber revolver. Very close to death, David was rushed to the
hospital. He was dead on the table. After 4 minutes the doctors
revived his lifeless body, but, David now knew many things that he didn't
Damon Bernklau, a vagabond, a drifter, run out of just about every town from here to California. He supported his young self by going from city
to city, town to town, and playing his guitar either in a cheap bar or right
on the street. But it was an honest life. He didn't steal and
he was a peaceful kid. Until he rolled into Chattahan, Iowa. Where
the local good 'ol boys didn't take to kindly to a hippy kid who didn't appear
to have a job. So, after a night of playing guitar in a local ginmill,
they cornered him in an alley. They beat him with axe handles until
he didn't move anymore. They smashed his guitar and drove him out of
town and dumped him in a cornfield where he lay for 2 straight weeks before
the farmer found him, barely alive but with a strange gleam in his eye.
Living in an insane asylum all your life can have some strange effects on
a persons behavior. As it was with Bob Benkhe. A problem patient,
Bob was never one to follow hospital rules. Incoherent and seemingly
dangerous most of the time, Bob was not allowed any sort of normal life.
He was kept drugged and restrained because if he wasn't he would rant
and rave about Jesus, the Devil, and how he had to get to them. It
was decided that the best thing for Bob would be electrical shock therapy.
But there was an accident, a power surge. 50 times the normal
voltage was pumped into Bob's body. Later, trying to explain how he
escaped, the doctors were all recomended for psychiatric evaluation after
telling the story of his disappearance.
These four people found each other beyond the confines of reality that the
rest of us know. They each left the world of the living simutaneously,
at the same time. Although seemingly gone for only a few moments, their souls
flew far and finally met and melted into one with which they lived a million
lifetimes outside the realms of time and space. Now they are back.
To tell us what they saw. Again they are together as one...SEVENTH
