I said it wouldn't do that, it would be exactly like you still had your original brain without actually having your original brain.

What i fear is... What happens to me if i die? What happens to ME? That terrifies me, the thought of just i don't know... Ceasing to exist. Why can we think, why can we have thoughts and dreams? What happens to that? I don't want to think i'll disappear- i mean, i don't even know how to express this

Considering the shapes, the "perhaps it was aliens" theory is plausible (angels usually warned people to "have no fear" when they manifested to people, i doubt the fear they caused was just because they were people with wings).
