      Marble Hornets at least had the aspect of being stalked and manipulated by a paranormal entity. Backrooms are just "Is that an empty hallway with fluorescent lighting? AYEEEEEE, I'M GOING INSAAAAANE"

        Many versions of it tend to include hostile entities and phemonona, along with the fact the Backrooms is usually depicted as a harsh place to live in of itself, having little in the way of resources and wanderers needing to make do with random scraps and trash.

          It started as a thought experiment from people older than you, who played games where you no glitch out of the map. So, its kinda a cool idea if you glitched out of reality's bounds and ended up in a giant empty space thats meant to enclose the world. That was the whole point, the dread of not being able to get back. The lore was added later by scared ipad victims

        For some reason, the spongebob end credits theme made me think that post-death, it would just be that theme and background for the rest of eternity. I'm reminded of the way I felt as a kid from that, so the theme disturbs me. But I don't find the theme itself disturbing.

        It is only "spoopy" NOW because you relate it to all those "dreamcore" playlists on youtube, the bg tune sounds a bit like that and maybe kinda lonely compared to bikini bottom.

        The only interesting point in this is that some youtuber mentioned it because apparently, there was a DVD that played all episodes in order while skipping the intro and outro, however, after all episodes were done, every damn outro from every episode would play in succession. I can see how that shit can make someone uneasy but it's a special case.

      To be fair, that song has some major Ween vibes. The creators of Spongebob were fans of Ween so I don't think it's far-fetched to say the outro song is meant to mimick their style. Ween songs can get pretty out there, especially on their earlier albums. Just listen to this song and you'll understand what I mean.

      That song gives me a similar feel as the Spongebob outro. It's that lo-fi sound with the intentionally sloppy guitar playing that gives an unsettling yet also kinda funny vibe.

          They've gone through a few eras. Their early era was the most crude and experimental. By their fourth album they started recording in professional studios and became more normie friendly, but without losing their signature weirdness. The album Stephen Hillenburg considers the inspiration for Spongebob is The Mollusk, which is entirely ocean themed. That's the album where Ocean Man comes from.

        1: People in general are over socialized morons. If an authority figure or general groupthink says to behave or think of something then they will agree with it. It's mass hysteria.
        2: Zoomers are attention starved morons and a lot of it is just them overreacting for said attention.
        3: They want to seem like they have their own culture and are above "horror slop" so they create their own stupid things to get overly scared about and then act smug as if its some sort of high art. I seen this youtube video defending this saying "Horror is just not for you now!".
        4: Analogue horror fricked up zoomies brains into seeing something horrible in the ordinary
        5: They are so emotionally unstable they can't handle real horror so they just fall back on safe horror. Look at what happened with Urban Spook.

        Not everything is some generational shit you fricking moron. This has always been a thing, it just became a shared/viral/vidya/thing in their generation. Plus they're going to give less of a shit about what Boomers traditionally considered spoopy, like haunted houses with cobwebs, skeletons, and gay Halloween shit like that. When you've got a mobile phone it's not so easy to be afraid of an axe murderer in a hockey mask. Fricking Dracula could show up in a foggy graveyard and Zoomers would probably be more instinctively inclined to take a selfie with him than run away.

        You can see why this would become a thing sooner or later too. Not only do you have to appeal to a baser fear in an environment where you can't just pull out your phone to get out of it, but computers just being able to render increasingly realistic 3D environments means sooner or later someone is going to start noticing the effect while constructing one. Especially in the early stages while making vidya where everything is still stark, fricked up, or unnatural in any way, like it's an infinite procedurally generated map with randomised elements.

        The Jared Pike digital art was one of the first pictures I saw along these lines and I got how creepy that shit is instantly:
        https://www.instagram.com/jaredpike.art/?hl=en

        Just being stuck in any environment that seems to go on forever with is bad enough to qualify as some level of Hell, let alone something unfamiliar and unpossible as this weird shit.

            I hate it because its the only thing zoomers focus on and have completely destroy what made the thing special. Yeah, surreal environments area cool and I like them also but then they only focus on said environment. Look at the back rooms wiki for example. They have no idea what makes the backrooms what it is by adding factions you can join like its a video game, a selection of monsters that chase you around like a video game and I even seen one entry that was just a populated town.

            Same shit with analogue horror, they took something neat and novel like lore drops like you would get in a Resident Evil game from a note and only focused on that part. There was a time entire horror series was just about solving ARG puzzles and how its about putting scan lines on everything and being the Blair Witch project or Ben Drowned.

            What I am saying is on its own a lot of the new horror isn't bad, what is bad is how zoomies completely misunderstand what makes those things special in the first place and ran it into the ground with being extremely repetitive because they can't grow out of five nights at freddies with mascot horror everywhere even after ten years of this shit. They took a spice and just made it the main course.

        For one, Scooby Doo was a family comedy and wasn't actually scary for anyone but the fictional characters in the cartoon. The hotel in The Shining wasn't spooky because it was a hotel, it was spooky because the father of the family succumbed to psychosis and tried to kill his family, and the kid ran into weird things that weren't actually physically present. The hotel having hauntings IRL is irrelevant in this particular discussion.
        Do you see the difference between The Shining's hotel and a picture of some random office with a yellow filter?

        Having known a few zoomers in my time I feel confident in saying that they are more than likely genuinely scared of le goofy faces. Zoomers are some of the biggest ass-munching, beauty hating, status-quo worshipping morons to ever exist, and they even believe that they go against the grain.
        It all boils down to israeli art and satanic inversion, taking something demure and turning it into something nasty. The zoomer mind is filled with dozens of different cartoon/video game characters. The mind has to remember all of those faces and put names to them. However, with goofy analog horror faces there's nothing personal about it. Just pure MKULTRA trauma conditioning.

          So JTK was just a massive israeli psyop all along? The image and resulting influence of it seems perfectly and beautifully manufactured. At the time, that one image alone sparked a brand new, deeply visceral type of horror. The image appearing with no known creator or OP after all these years and the tsunami waves it spawned in the Zoomer collective conciousness just seems all too perfect for it not to be the fruit of many evil psychic experiments conducted in an underground base of a three letter agency. Either that or it was created by one of the greatest creative minds to live in recent history

      To be honest, I have the opposite opinion as you because it's a different type of horror. The idea of randomly slipping into a dimension which is just infinite, repetitive banality with no escape is more of a dismal terror as opposed to an existential or supernatural one. Where it became stupid is when people started adding monsters into it. Which can obviously be scary when it's thematically applicable, but that's not what made the backrooms scary.

      I read this book a few years back and it was simultaneously very scary and incredibly lame.

      There's so much more I wish it did with it's premise but got barred down by melo-drama that had little impact. I'm really glad this book exists though because someone will be inspired by it to make something more complete to what exactly scared me about it.

          Yeah. I found the dynamics of that book incredibly predictable and knew where most of the inter-personal relationships were going very early on, despite not knowing how exactly the rest of the novel was going to play out.

      Garbage book that someone can read in three days because every other page is only like 10 words for "muh effect." HoL is a parody of academia, if anything, and the only people who consider it a horror novel are the ones who have never read it.

      Frick you OP. Backrooms shit was pretty fricking awesome actually. I used to walk through my schoolyard at night in the 80's and it would freak me the frick out because it seemed 'unnatural' when empty. Also have done some night driving and come across some pretty lonely roads with tree lines and shit the are trippy in the same way, like in total darkness, full moonlight, even the daytime. I've always been fascinated by Ghost Towns, abandoned urban buildings and complexes, Chernobyl, etc. so I love that shit, and always knew dat feel bro.

      Also this is great intro that tripped me out hardcore as a kid, and that has nothing to do with Zoomers:

      Simple but effective use of the same phenomenon, we just didn't really identify it as a thing or have a name for it.

      I downloaded the games and some of them are great. I'd play them a lot more if they didn't tend to give me nausea or otherwise make me feel physically ill after a while. Good and original use of 3D environments that have their own unique kind of weirdness, and where they can really dial that shit up to 11 like nothing you could possibly construct in the real world.

      The monster shit wasn't necessary, but not the worst variation. I prefer it when it's used sparingly and you just hear weird shit, not actually run into the monster or it ever actually gets you. What I didn't like as much with some of those was where you have other people with you. It's okay for what it is, but misses the point a bit and leans toward more standard vidya feels. Though some of the most desolate pre-NuLara Tomb Raider levels have that kind of feel. So much so it's kind of a pity when they're interrupted by actual enemies and shit you have to do.

      AI does a pretty good job with liminal spaces. I made a thread once where I posted about pictures of real liminal spaces and computer-generated shit and it was obvious that people often had trouble telling them apart.

      congratulations, you're an npc who can't stand to be alone for more than 5 minutes.

        when i see empty places like that, inside of buildings like malls and such, i immediately think of the fun i could have, like racing bikes or driving my car around in there like that scene from blues brothers. dunno why these kids get spooked by empty rooms. so goofy, but that kane pixels guy is skilled and i enjoy his story telling and animations.

        I'd love to see you tough guys in these situations for real. Yeah, I'm sure you wouldn't be perturbed, freaked out, or cautious in the slightest.

        No human would be comfortable in those kinds of situations for the same reason you don't just go bumblefricking around in the forest with your thumb up your arse at night with no defence, considering every predator on earth has night vision far superior to your sorry arse, so you couldn't even see them coming.

        A hallway with multiple doors is freaky for the same reason as a dark forest full of trees - multiple attack vectors you can't clear until you're close enough to them to have little time to react to an attack. In an urban environment it's arguably worse, since you're likely dealing with the most dangerous game and to whom you're at a disadvantage:

        ?t=561

        I bet you homosexuals wouldn't be caught dead walking a Chicago street at twilight, let alone anything remotely like any of this Backrooms shit.

          Wow I thought it was just a joke that Zoomers were actually scared of office buildings LOL. I’ll handle this one guys:

          No, multiple doors is a sign that you are in a populated area around people. There’s likely a break room or kitchen with food and water very close by. You do not have to worry about exposure. Not at all the same as being in the forest with Missing 411 cases galore and panicking about how you’re going to eat, stay warm, and not go insane.

          I can honestly say it does not take being “tough” to not be scared of the “backrooms” and you are a complete and total pussy for the comment you posted.

            Which is exactly why it's freaky when there are no people that you can find. It means shit is NOT normal, and maybe they're hiding from you, maybe they were abducted by aliens, or basically WTF? Something's not right. Something happened, and it's probably not good:

            Especially if you hear noises and shit. Is it people but they're hiding from you? Why? Is it an animal? Is it aliens or something?

            Everything about the Backrooms is about starving your brain of enough information to reach a conclusion so you can be comfortable with your surroundings. Shitty lighting, distant unidentifiable noises, strange illogical building arrangements, one way passages, a place that seems to go on forever with liminal spaces in a building that has no actual discernable function, etc.

            Are Zoomtards so overly estimulated that they get scared when you don't have instant access to all the information about something? Do you lack curiosity or ingenuity? Are you even human?

            I genuinely don't know why you can't understand it. Generally in the backroom shit you just find yourself there, it's not like you entered the building wtf. You may be able to rationalize it in the moment, but eventually time starts to pass and you'll get hungry and the lack of an exit would surely get to you eventually, come on my guy. You're trying so hard to call everyone else moronic for the accompanying image that you're missing the concept as a whole

          never said it wouldn't be hard to survive one of those situations, what are you going to eat or drink in a place like the backrooms? probably starve to death unless you want to eat drywall, which will kill you anyway.
          I've worked in security, night shifts in dangerous sketchy places, even during the day. dealing with literal schizo's methed out, dancing around with needles in their hands. been attacked, had a guy try biting me with his rabies ridden mouth. I think I could handle an empty building, shid, I've even done night shift for 12 hours straight 5 day's a week in an empty greenhouse in the middle of nowhere, nothing but the sounds of coyotes in the surrounding forests and massive greenhouse completely void of life but me. those are some of the comfiest moments I had working a job. It was best doing patrols through the dim lit warehouse parts of the facilities. I get the whole "there could be somebody in here with me" thoughts that cross your mind, but being alone in a building isn't that bad.
          Also I have walked through Chicago streets at night. Not in the jogger infested ones, but you gotta be moronic to do that if you are white.

          I think zoomers are just scared of these places because they've grown up either having someone around all the time, either in person or on devices. to be truly alone for a period of time is a oddity to most of that age group. they've been conditioned by technology to be in constant contact with other people. I know people my age who are like that too, having to have people around all the time. everyone is different I guess, but I still find it funny that zoomer horror is being alone in an empty room.

        I don't mind this guy's shit either, though the monster in this one is kinda meh:

        ?t=109

        But the other aspect that makes this kind of thing good is the environment itself just logically not making any real sense, (which computer-generated shit is perfect for). Like in this one since there are lights in the tunnel that leads to the obvious conclusion there must be an intelligent presence involved, (though he shouldn't really need to explicitly mention that, or really talk that much at all). Whether it be some shady government thing, aliens, Satanic cult, or just crazy John Goodman building a uber-bunker to keep Mary Elizabeth Winstead captive, whatever the case, your brain just can't quite piece together a scenario where it's anything good.

        My favourite introduction to the computer generated stuff was the infinite pool rooms:

        ?t=110

        You instinctively know how expensive something like that would be to construct and maintain IRL, so it makes absolute zero sense for it to even exist, (you couldn't even economically construct something like that IRL for the sake of some kind of Backrooms theme park), let alone with nobody to be found. That means they either know you're there, are watching, and are purposely hiding, or you're even further off the fricking map.

        If you've ever seen an antelope drinking at a waterhole full of crocogators that it can't pinpoint, you know exactly why you'd be freaked out by being anywhere near water you were unfamiliar with. OP is exactly the kind of dumbass who would get eaten and not even think twice before going wading waist deep into it, (even the water level itself in this is optimised to maximise human vulnerability). You've got to be one incestuously urbanised homosexual to have had millions of years of basic fricking animal instinct bred out of you so you can't even sense anything out of whack.

      I've never found what zoomers call liminal spaces to be spooky. They've always been very cozy and calming to me. I also walked my abandoned school in the 2000's. I used to go to the old halls and courts and just sit and remember. I also like to go to deadmalls where I'm the only soul around. As someone who just hates being around other people these empty places are a paradise.

            There are some weird unnatural looking places on Earth, and weird manmade structures.

            With that one the geometry is weird, the off-centre lighting, but random patched concrete, that obviously doesn't have to look pretty on the inside.

            Just not the kind of thing you'd be used to seeing or be able to make immediate sense of, especially if you assumed it's a some floor-level building or even underground tunnel.

    The irony with homosexuals saying people who find liminal spaces scary just haven't been outside to touch grass and experience wide open spaces, is that they've probably never spent any time outside in and environment that wasn't full of people, urban or otherwise themselves.

    When you venture away from the rest of humanity, your own house, and places you're familiar with, you can find yourself in some pretty strange-looking desolate places, where your brain subconsciously knows how fricked you are if you happen to get into a spot where you need another civilised human being to help you out. That was especially a thing before mobile phones and satellite transponders. You'd could just fall and break your leg and you were totally fricked. It would just be you and the buzzards. You're still going to retain that instinct of knowing when you're in a vulnerable position, regardless of what tech you actually have.

      You wanna know the fricked up thing about that picture? That shark was actually real. It's called a fur shark. They inhabit certain parts of North America, and sometimes go on land. This particular fur shark entered the home of some unsuspecting people and ate their cat. The owners rushed to take a picture while it was happening. Then it ate them. Look it up. It was a huge story awhile back, before it got memory holed.

    idk if there's anyone from chicago here, but i think it was in 2007 or 2008, i went there with a bunch of friends and we stayed at the congress hotel.
    one of the nights we were all drunk and stoned and felt like exploring, so we went walking around the hotel. got to a floor that was being renovated and was roped off. we went in and checked it out. Some of the rooms doors were unlocked, and there were a couple that had some very old furniture left in them. Nothing too weird.
    But we kept poking around and found some maintenance areas, floor buffers and cleaning products and shit. Found a box of some nice Congress branded coffee mugs and we pilfered a few.
    Kept looking around, and eventually came across some kind of banquet room. Really old creaky hardwood floors, long dining tables with centerpieces and empty pitchers still on them, tablecloths still set on them.
    There was a podium and a couple tables to either side of it. The room was dimly lit, overall roughly the size of a school gym basketball court.
    I got the impression the room was still being used recently. It wasn't all covered in cobwebs or anything. Possibly was where they did employee meetings or something, who knows. But the way it was so out of the way from the rest of the hotel and the bar inside seemed really weird. One of my friends must have said something along the lines of a freemason meeting place, or some other kind of secret society shit, and that stuck with me. It was in the wee hours of the morning and still had the lights on low, really fricked up vibe.

      this room?

      I’ve stumbled upon this room in a similar fashion as you described actually. My best friend was enrolled at the university a couple blocks down, and once or twice we strolled around exploring the hotel when we were drunk/stoned. The time I remember finding this room we were fricking around on the fire escapes, and wandering the stairwells, when suddenly the area you’re talking about appeared before us. We entered from the above balcony, so that may have added to the jarring moment of discovery to begin with. It did seem very closed off from the rest of the hotel, since I remember we managed to drink almost an entire bottle of jagermeister before we reached it. The lights were really dim, but I don’t remember there being a lot of tables set though. There was a microphone in the center that was still turned on and we started singing into it. Not a single staff member of the hotel or any guest managed to enter into the room for the hour we must have been in there. One last thing, I remember my friend had his camera with him and he took a picture of me in this room, and my face was completely whited out, like he had had the flash on. Very tabula rasa type of energy I absolutely agree.

        Lol oh man, I totally forgot about getting locked in the fridge episode... I bet that's where my fear of being trapped in the fridge, freezer, dryer, etc came from back then...
        I watched what I could of the "Perils of Punky"/cave episode and this show had some really messed up stuff... Seeing it as an adult it's kinda unsurprising I'd find it as scary as "It", because you really wouldn't expect that from a show like Punky Brewster where the studio had to know a huge portion of their audience was like 4-10 years old.

        (Figures they'd have made some crappy Punky Brewster reboot too. They've been doing that with basically everything, regardless of how awful and unnecessary they all are. Honestly, I've just kinda avoided all of them though)

            It probably wasn't too many years after this that I was at my aunt and uncles house, where we'd play with our cousins, while the adults played cards and stuff.
            Somehow I got my redheaded cousin so mad at me that she charged at me like a boar or something. I was really young, so I probably just kind of sat there, but my brother moved me out of the way, and she ended up ramming into the wall with her head.
            Me and my brother would laugh about it for years after that, but my biggest memory of that night was being all pissed off that I had to sit on the stairs forever on "timeout" or something for hours, because my uncle decided it was all my fault... Stupid redheads lol
            (I also always remember being at their house one night when a new Simpsons was on, but The Simpsons wasn't allowed in their house. This was during its prime when that type of show is really new, but I wonder what that side of the family thinks of shows like South Park and stuff now.)

    Liminal spaces are pretty novel. How often do you think about stairwells and vestibules? You pass through them. But stopping to reflect on them gives new details.
    By nature of how architecture is designed, rooms are gender intended to contain people and objects. When they are empty is it different from what we are familiar with. If you are unnerved by isolation, of course they can be scary. Unfortunately the back rooms spiraled out of control because every kid who read an scp article tried to take a crack at expanding the lore.

    Sure, but I've always seen the "muh liminal hallways aren't scary" gays and the, "let's shovel more monsters and people into this hallway until it defeats the whole point" gays, as suffering from the same blindness. At least in the latter case I can just ignore takes on the Backrooms that don't get it. I'm under no obligation to accept their 'lore', I can take it or leave it.

    Good example, I've always had a soft spot for this film, because a (not-so-literal) Ghost Ship is a perfectly creepy and isolating environment:

    ?t=880

    Hence the same concept being used for a Backrooms level:

    Ever since I first saw it as a kid, I've looked for more shit like it, but most kinda make it lame with the 'ghost' part of 'Ghost Ship' being far too literal. The best thing I've seen since is Triangle (2009). That's a great little film for what it is and manages to provide signs of unseen people being on board without resorting to something as lame as literal ghosts:

    A ship merely floating around with nobody onboard is a creepy enough set up, and shit being left running, or items left out like people were there recently with no sign of what happened to them, and just weird unexplained shit happening, is fine and all you need for a basis. Literal ghosts is just kinda stupid, like this disappointment:

    Just like movies though I can take Backrooms videos/games or leave them, and the more literal horror shit might appeal to some gays, or even me if done well. Who knows? I'll criticise the bad movies, but I'm not about to write off all of them or the whole "subgenre" because some moron directors just don't have a clue.

        It's not just fog it's a representation of trauma you've inflicted or experienced. I guess I get how you could correlate the two but there truly is nothing similar. The confrontation you need to make with yourself is a large part of what makes silent hill so much more engaging than whatever scp wack shit they forced onto what was once a fun little concept initially

        • 4 weeks ago

          Not talking about any of that shit, I'm talking about the environment ITSELF being disturbing BEFORE you even get to any of that.

          There's a reason Silent Hill, (the town), isn't all sunshine, gumdrops, and the bustling crowds. This is exactly what you homosexuals don't get. There's a reason this kind of thing is set in environments that are intrinsically 'disturbing' in some way, usually where normal logic doesn't apply, (like the inexplicable and apparently impossibly rapid decay of the town), and/or your senses being limited, usually on some threshold where they're prone to false positives, or otherwise not knowing what the frick they're perceiving.

          Just walking down the foggy path to get to town is unnerving enough, and that's before you drop any monsters or even any real story into it.
          And the way that starts with shadowy, barely perceptible humanoid, (yet inhuman), creatures in the fog, making bizarre noises is what makes that game so well written. Also the staticky radio picking up snippets of voices and shit is quite literally low signal to noise ratio again.

          The anti-liminal homosexuals don't like to admit it, but the best traditional 'horror' environments use the same liminal effects, whether it's just the design of a haunted house, a Transylvanian fog, or the way something is shot in a Hitchwiener film, it's all fundamentally the same shit.

          After that point the effect can be ruined by a bad monster, or shitty story, the same as I could ruin Backrooms level zero with windows to the outside and a map showing the exit. Silent Hill 2 isn't all the environment, but it builds on that foundation in a good way.

          Pretending the liminal stuff isn't a thing is the equivalent of pretending there's nothing to see in the WAY Hitchwiener shot the film 'Vertigo', just because there's a story you can point to.

    I liked the original concept but much like everything it becomes garbage when you see what people do with it
    I've always thought the folk stories a generation creates tells a lot about their general outlook on the world in and around them
    So to me backrooms was a really good framework for ideas much like the SCP which was my generation's thing
    But what we see come out of the creative side is vastly different in composition and content
    Often backrooms stories don't end ever or have an ambiguous conclusion that is meaningless
    From here we can source out an idea of the general mood of the new zeitgeist approaching us
    Look at a backrooms video and instead of the surface pretend it is a metaphor for the human mind that created it
    It's dystopian, sterile, vaguely threatened by something that is never made clear
    It's the result of being raised with the Internet

      Gen Z and A don't find that concept unnerving in and of itself. They only think it's creepy if there are monsters in there. To people saying that gen Z is afraid of empty spaces, it's really the exact opposite. Millennials discovered the concept of the backrooms. Gen Z didn't find it scary, but liked the name, so they gave it monsters, which completely nullified the entire point. Gen Z didn't think that the concept of the backrooms was scary without monsters. They can't entertain the idea of empty spaces period. Millennials were the only ones who were able to uncover and appreciate the concept of the backrooms before it was hijacked by gen Z.

    I've never been invested in the Backrooms or the Liminal Space meme but I can clearly understand where the fear comes from because I've experienced this kind of fear (it was more like a sense of dread and loneliness at the same time) in person, in real life, 20 years ago when I was just a kid.

    My father was a teacher and I went to the same school that my father taught at, and he was very much a workaholic so often times I'd find myself hanging out in the school for 1-3 hours after everybody else has left, waiting for my father to finish up his work, or he'd drag me with him to the school on weekends or holidays if he needed to catch up on his work. I'd essentially have free reign of the entire school at like 7 years old. Of course, 99% of the classrooms and offices were locked so my reign was mostly just restricted to hallways but sometimes rooms would be unlocked and there was always the massive gymnasium, completely enclosed by hallways with no windows, which was pitch black after hours, and there were wings of the school where the lights were turned off and the only light seeping through would be from windows on doors at the end of hallways. It'd often just be me, alone in a massive school wandering around while my father worked in the classroom.

    A lot of times I'd just get this uneasy sense that I shouldn't be here or that things were wrong just staring at empty places where two hallways intersect and I couldn't see around the corner, or just staring at classroom doors that were open. The eeriness of everything just being extremely quiet except for my own noises and this place that was once bustling just hours ago being dead silent unnerved me. I'm pretty sure I even entertained the fantasy that I could get lost in an endless maze of just school hallways 20 years before people came up with the Backrooms even. There's also the fricking gym which was pitch black and the door was always unlocked. I used to call it "The Void" and got lost in there once.

      How the hell did you get lost? Just go back the way you came

        I always found the gym scary (but intriguing) after hours for how pitch black it was and obviously because it's echo-y it is being a gymnasium, so I'd often be daring and play a game where I'd open the door as best as I can, and run in as far as I could and then run back before the door closed on me while there was still some light. The doors to the gym are really thick and they have this brush-y lining on the bottom of them that touches the floor and pretty much makes it impossible for light from outside to seep under it. There were also two main doors to the gym, both on the complete opposite side of the gym from eachother. One time I mustered enough courage to try and sprint from one door to the other side of the gym and reach the other door since it was supposed to be just a straight line and I was hopeful maybe I could reach the other side before the door behind me closed and I still had some light.

        When I reached the other side the door I came from was shut enveloping me in pitch blackness the angle I was running must have been off because I met the wall instead of the opposite door, and I had no clue which of the walls I was touching or what. The obvious thing to do would just be to fricking follow the wall but I was 7 years old and panicking and my first instinct was to try and run back the way I came, but once I realized I was lost/"stuck" I just started screaming for help and crying like a b***h for 10 minutes until my echoes must of reached out of the gym because my dad eventually came looking for me. Frick The Void, man. I wasn't actually in danger but it was the closest to an "out of reality" experience I ever had.

    Can "liminality" be scary on its own? I know its a useful resource to evoque a feeling in art, but im not sure you can make scary movies, books or songs only based on that

    Because it real

    All of these things are real it just took humanity time to remember.

    Everything has alwaready happened we are in a repeating cycle

    Same with uncanny valley because humanity will someday live with beings that are not human but act like humans maybe AI droids or alien hybrids

    Thousands of years after our next reset humans will remember these things again and feel the same things we are feeling rn

    The problem is not that liminal space feels aren't real, but it's ironically homosexuals who don't get it posting shit like picrel. I found picrel on a site with 'muh liminal pics'.

    This is not liminal, and a perfect example of a 'non-liminal gayspace' which is just random crap with some superficial similarities by some Zoomer who doesn't get it because their brain is fricked up by Ritalin and troony hormones, and who wants to be involved with 'teh latest viral phenomenon'.

    It's pretty easy for a normal person who gets it to know the difference between actual spoopy liminal shit and a non-liminal gayspace.
