The massive wall had been built to create two worlds, the real and the unreal.
The crowds gathered on one side, effusively enjoying the reassuring calmness. They felt protected.
When the old man placed his cold hand on the wall, a cry of anguish erupted, followed by sheer horror.
At first, there was only a dry muffled sound. Then, as if in slow motion, the wall crumbled in a thousand icy fragments.
The real and the unreal could no longer be distinguished. People no longer had that soothing comfort.
Once more, they were doomed to face reality… and to think.
