The quake lasted only a minute, but it was one of those situations in which time dilates ridiculously. I really did think long and hard, albeit over twenty seconds, about whether being on the sixth floor would make survival more likely than being on the third. And then I concluded that if the seventh floor were concrete, I was going to be fucked regardless.

You're absolutely right about the lizard brain, though. Once I fell down into the interior wall that had just been on my left, it was hard to remain a mammal through and through.
