Existential Interrogation - Der Kosmonaut

Existential Interrogation

 

What happens when you die?

I no longer exist.

When you no longer exist?

I'm no longer alive.

What happens when you're alive?

I remain on Earth avoiding imprisonment and torture.

What happens if you're imprisoned and tortured?

I'm in Hell.

What happens in Hell?

I lose my mind.

When you lose your mind?

I no longer have consciousness.

When you lose your consciousness?

I'm a useless human.

What becomes of the useless human?

He possesses a waiting ticket to nowhere.

How goes the trip to nowhere?

It leads to slavery.

What is slavery?

Dehumanisation.

What's dehumanisation?

Losing my soul.

What happens when you lose your soul?

I have nothing left to live for.

When you have nothing left to live for?

Then all options have run out.

When all options have expired?

Then there's nothing left to lose.
