This piece is pulling on the mechanics of fear and smug inside the mind of someone having a seizure. With the people running around on fire, you would think that having a seizure was an emergency. On the one hand, it isn’t, and the panic that ensues both during a seizure and after, is totally a lavishing of attention on someone. On the other hand, it still isn’t an emergency, but this is a silent terror that could happen at any time, anywhere, in the middle of anything.
