So, we waiting for what?
So you sittin' here telling me, this place is a waiting room, right? What are we waiting for?
Rebirth? Like reincarnation?
If that's what you wanna call it
What the fuck you mean "if that's what I wanna call it?" either this is what it is
Or this is what it ain't
Chu mean? Ughhh, this muhfucka
Aight, lemme get this straight, every time I die
I come here, we talk, and you send me back to earth to be reborn?
You know the last time we had this conversation it was in mandarin and you were 13
And a girl!
What? Nah, bruh, you fuckin wit me
You're, like, Jesus Christ
He was here too!
What? Wait, wait, so the Christians got it right?
Well I'm about to reincarnate you Atom. I'd say everyone kinda got it right
This is a whole lot to take in!
I know trust me, I've been there
So, how many times have I been reincarnated?
Many, many many many, many times
If it's so many times, why don't I remember?
If we stayed here long enough, the lives you have lived
And the knowledge from each of them would return
I'm actually about to send you back to 1736 as Bryan Fairfax, the 8th lord Fairfax of Cameron
Word, ayy, that sounds important
Oh yes you own 40,000 acres
God damn! Oh, I'm sorry
Ha, it's quite alright
Well at least I'm not poor no more
Well sure! with all that land and the hundreds of slaves you'll own
Slaves? Aw hell nah, nononono, look look look
How you gonna take a black man, send him back in time
And now I gotta own slaves?
Well if it's any consolation, your son Tom, the 9th Lord Fairfax of Cameron sets them free!
No! That does not make me feel better at all
Wait hold up, I just realized you said you're gonna send me back in time?
Well, I'm not really sending you back in time
That doesn't exist where I come from, only in your universe
Well, where are you from?
Honestly Atom, even if I explained where I came from
Or told you about the others like me, you just wouldn't understand
But if there's others like you, how can you be god?
Atom, I said you wouldn't understand!
So what's the point of doing all this?
A little cliche don't you think?
Essentially asking Me the meaning of life
Well I figured I would ask before you send me back and I can't remember none of this
Atom come here. The meaning of life
The reason I created this place, is so that you can grow, and mature
Like the human race?
Like this is how the human race is supposed to grow and mature?
Mature into what? We can't even get along
No Atom, you! It's for you, YOU to mature
I don't understand
I created this place for you, Atom
This entire place was made for you
Every time I send you back, every life you live, you grow
And mature and understand the grand meaning behind all of this
Just a little more each time
Just me? Wait, what about everybody else?
Atom, there is no one else
I don't understand
Atom, you are every human being who has ever existed since the dawn of your kind on earth
Wait, I'm everyone?
Aaahhhhh yes, now you are beginning to see it
So I'm like, everyone that ever existed on earth, ever?
Earth? Ha, that's cute
Earth was just your birthplace
Let us not forget all the stars humanity will colonize over the millennia
Wait, that is so much
Too much to take in!
I'm every human being that ever lived?
Or ever will live, yes!
And all of his disciples
And the millions he murdered
You see Atom, every act of hatred and violence you committed against another
You were committing against yourself
And every act of love and hand of kindness
You also extended unto yourself
God, why do all this?
Someday, long from now, you will become like me
You will mature to become what I am
I'm a god?
No, not yet. You see, I was once where you stand right now
It is not until you have lived every human life inside of your universe
That I may take you from this place
Once you have walked in the shoes of every race, religion, gender, sexual orientation
Loving and hateful person
It is only then that you will understand how precious life truly is
