Having taken the time to read further, I see there are guidelines suggesting personalization for the game: emotions(body & soul?) not merely the mind. So, I'll try to add the missing elements to my comments:
Fifteen years ago I was partially responsible for the death of a young man. He was standing only two feet away from me when he fell into a crevasse. I roped-up and tried to assist in getting him out of the crevasse, but I made mistakes with serious consequences. I held him as he lay dying, and told him it was ok to go. A few minutes later, we got him to the surface and I tried CPR, but it was too late. Hours later, with the curtain of darkness, loud laughter came from our tent as we passed around the whiskey bottle. Our climbing partner's body was only 20 feet away.
There was no silence that day- that night. Silence wuld have been too unbearable.
Now, I see the inconsistencies between my previous comments and my actual experiences. So draw your own conclusions on how the mind processes incoming stimuli in order to protect the organism. Amen
