The physical location or sensation of a numinous, uncanny transcendency

By Ian VincePublished 4 months ago 1 min read
There are many nufonimous places, but one of the strangest is the village of Trepanning.

Nufonimous: adj

The location or sensation of direct contact with an uncanny ‘otherness’ that has not been immediately preceded by administration of a recreational pharmaceutical.

Or was. It depends.

Nufonimosity occurs when a rogue spinal shiver expands to fill the entire central nervous system, including the brain. The shiver reverberates against the inner shell of an aura and sets up interference waves that resonate at higher frequencies, resulting in a feeling of mystery, reverence and divinity, as well as loss of bladder control and sequelae of intense pulp-bibliomania and periods of luxuriant, artless credulity.

The sensation may appear anywhere within a yard of a warm, damp patch of fabric, but certain geographical locations may possess inherent nufonimosity and stimulate the sensation more frequently than others.

Stonehenge, Roswell and an undisclosed enclave of infinite implausibility within the brain of Dr Steven Greer are all good examples of nufonimous locations, but the most famous is the town of Trepanning in Cornwall, UK.

Trepanning exists behind a sub-atomic quantum peep hole. It is a parallel world that has been described as "a village so remote, it lies on its own outskirts". Trepanning does not appear on any official maps - except its own - and no roads lead in or out of the village. An entire alternate reality of the uncanny exists in a Mobius strip of four dimensional spacetime four-to-six times shorter than a wasp fart.

It has been postulated that all nufonimous sensations emanate from and disappear to Trepanning.
