In and Out of Consciousness

Remember that book, Flowers for Algernon? The main character is mentally slow, and he undergoes some kind of experiment that over time turns him into a full-fledged genius. Alas, the experiment ends and he painfully reverts to his former state, after having glimpsed another kind of life.

That descent back into unconsciousness . . . that's what I fear most now that I think I've woken up. I don't want to go back down into the darkness . . .

I'm scared right now.

We read this book in high-school, thirty years ago. I had forgotten all about it until I read your post.
