Script Details

(part 1)
1. You’re so fragile, but if I do everything correctly, feed you at precise intervals, maintain exact conditions, I could keep you alive for 8 cycles of death and rebirth or more. Maybe discover what it is that eventually makes you decay, and reverse it.
2. But why does it have to grow younger, more primitive, to reverse backwards in order to regenerate?
3. What secret is there in this reversal or is it just a cosmic fluke?
4. There’s got to be a reason for being reborn with nothing, over and over.

(part 2)
5. Fireflies
6. Shit, not now.
7. As a kid, I thought fireflies were visiting and that everyone’s day was full of forgotten, secret, places.
8. Now I know they’re auras, an overture to a seizure, and that each one causes me to forget what happened right before.
9. Minutes, hours, if I have enough of them, entire days.
10. I thought I’d beaten it.
11. But my mind is like a black hole.
12. Experience goes in and vanishes.
13. I just want to do my work, live a normal life.
14. It’s just a matter of time. Then what
15. Am I supposed to just sit around and watch and wait as my world falls apart?

(part 3)
16. I’d rather keep doing what I love, even if it means I have to pretend like everything’s okay.
