At least, thought Martin Elginbrod to himself, I seem to be alive, so that is something to be upbeat about and he spent some time wiggling his extremities in a rather simplistic belluine kind of way, although as it seemed he was either blind or in a completely darkened place, it was perforce an unsatisfactory exercise, being unable to see them, and he remembered stories of people with phantom limbs, imagining that they could wiggle the toes which were no longer there and then it flashed across his mind like a lightning bolt that his eyes were simply shut and so he suddenly opened them but the glimpse of those who were studying him, perceiving him as simply an othering, a specimen, a fat, unfit, ugly representative of the Human Race made him shut his eyes again as tightly as he could, blush to his scant roots and wish himself dead!
