Distraction 114: The Middle Ground Between Light & Shadow

Image by Dave Perillo

Rod Serling was a master story teller.  Even the introductions to the "Twilight Zone" were wonderfully written if you actually think about what's being said.  (Imagine!)  My favorite is the third one listed below.  

"You're traveling through another dimension; a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind.  A journey into a wondrous land whose boundaries are that of imagination.  That's the signpost up ahead!  Your next stop: the Twilight Zone!"

"You unlock this door with the key of imagination.  Beyond it is another dimension: a dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind.  You're moving into a land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas. You've just crossed over into... the Twilight Zone."

"There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man.  It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity.  It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge.  This is the dimension of imagination.  It is an area which we call 'The Twilight Zone.'"
