Facts about Russian Sleep Experiment that will Creep you out
The creepy Russian Sleep Experiment kept five people awake for fifteen days by exposing them to a gas stimulant. The experiment took place in 1940s on the prisoners of World War II. They were kept in a closed environment and were monitored through microphones. The test subjects were provided with enough food and drink to stay alive for a month. However, strange things started to happen after which the scientists had to end the experiment in only 15 days.
During first five days the prisoners talked about distressing incidents of their past. After day five the subjects showed signs of paranoia and complained about the events that led them in that chamber. Slowly they stopped talking to each other and started to whisper individually in the microphone. The scientists initially thought that this behavior was the effect of gas, however, the events which happened the following days shocked them.
One of them started screaming out his lungs. He kept running around the chamber and yelling for three hours straight. As a result of screaming he torn his vocal chords and then made failed attempts to yell. What surprised the researchers was that none of the other prisoners reacted to his screaming and continued whispering in microphones. After sometime the second prisoner started to scream and the rest sat quietly tearing pages from the books they were given.
Suddenly all of them went quiet for days but they were alive according to oxygen consumption in the room. The researchers hence decided to open the chambers on day 15th. They announced through intercom, “We are opening the chamber to test the microphones; step away from the door and lie flat on the floor or you will be shot. Compliance will earn one of you your immediate freedom.” After this they got a shocking reply, “We no longer wanted to be free.”
The scientists finally opened the chamber and what they saw gave them chills. Four of the men were alive but the food from past five days was untouched. Instead they saw that the men were eating their own flesh. They ripped off their flesh with bare hands.
The prisoners refused to leave the chamber and fought back the guards with force that they ripped of their testicles and throats.
After a lot of struggle they moved them to operation theatre. Three of them died during the process but the last one who remained alive said something to the researcher that shocked him. When the researcher asked him What are you? He replied,
“Have you forgotten so easily? “We are you. We are the madness that lurks within you all, begging to be free at every moment in your deepest animal mind. We are what you hide from in your beds every night. We are what you sedate into silence and paralysis when you go to the nocturnal haven where we cannot tread.”
The researcher paused. Then aimed at the subject’s heart and fired a gun. The subject weakly choked out, “So… nearly… free…”
