Leonard later on described that when he stops he feels nothing, like he’s dead, but when I heard that statement I felt like it was dehumanizing for the patients, leaving them as just bodies with nothing inside. It could also be an explanation that kept the doctor’s conscience clean and letting him focus. Because I think it’s easier to work on someone’s disease and condition if we think they are not aware of it, rather than have that knowledge in the back of their head that the patient is trapped in his own body.
