“Ours is not a perfect world, and therefore the old must die in order that the young, that which is more perfect or at any rate capable of greater perfection, may live. Thus death becomes a thing necessary and useful in the evolution of the whole; the destruction of one celestial body contributes to the progress of the rest of the universe.” ~ Max Wilhelm Meyer
The last thing you might have been expecting from the colorful cartoony scene above is that it was really depicting the end of the world. It is not a realistic interpretation of the apocalypse, but is rather more of a symbolic and dream-like view of those end of days in which a father explains to his son how the world fell apart and how even in these most dire hours things aren’t so bad
I often wonder myself whether the end of the world is but a dream and the act of finding something uplifting is necessary to begin anew.
