A rehearsal (Roy)

Maybe that's what life is, or ends up being most of the time:  a rehearsal for a performance that never eventually materializes.

Introspection

Introspection would be tedious and unrewarding in the extreme were it limited to our looking just at our own small selves. But it isn't. It's us looking at ourselves looking at the world.

The only thing humans do
that is justifiable

The new order (Moore)

During the night something inside him had changed. Each time he thought things had reached a plateau of weirdness, something even weirder had happened. The result, he realized, was that he was now accepting anything that happened, no matter how weird, without resistance. Chaos was the new order in his life.

It can happen (Levi)

It happened, therefore it can happen again:  this is the core of what we have to say.  It can happen, and it can happen everywhere.

About being ruled (Lucas)

There's a reason why kings built large palaces, sat on thrones and wore rubies all over. There's a whole social need for that, not to oppress the masses, but to impress the masses and make them proud and allow them to feel good about their culture, their government and their ruler so that they are left feeling that a ruler has the right to rule over them, so that they feel good rather than disgusted about being ruled.

To ask

To ask "Why is there what there is?" is to ask "Why was there what there was?"
