"Meet Westlake Soul, a twenty-three-year-old former surfing champion. A loving son and brother. But if you think he's just a regular dude, think again; Westlake is in a permanent vegetative state. He can't move, has no response to stimuli, and can only communicate with Hub, the faithful family dog. And like all superheroes, Westlake has an archenemy: Dr. Quietus--a nightmarish embodiment of Death itself."--P. [4] of cover.

This is in the science fiction genre, but is it really? Just as there isnt concrete evidence of what happens to the essence of us when the body dies, how can we not imagine the vegetative state to be an entrance to a new world? Just as I was deeply impressed by the classic Johnny Got His Gun, this leaves a dent in the psyche. Would if what we know to be true is only true because our minds are limited right now?
