Storyboard Text

  • A Chautauqua... that's what I call it when I think deeply. This is my son, Chris. We are always traveling through the country on motorcycles, but we like to call them cycles. *Note that I couldn't find the picture for motorcycles
  • On the right are John and Sylvia. Sometimes we travel together with our cycles. However, even though I know a lot about cycles, they still insist on seeking help from a mechanic when their cycle breaks down or whatever. I think that they feel insecure about technology since they avoid it at all costs. I think John and Sylvia dodge the subject of technology because they feel like they are left out when people are talking about it because they don't know anything about it.
  • This terrain... it's giving me this uncanny feeling. It's like the ghosts of my past. It must be from my previous life, Phaedrus. I think his memories are still in my brain because Phaedrus and I are the same individual but in different time periods.
  • This is Bozeman, Montana. I am going to talk to the friends of Phaedrus: Robert and Gennie DeWeese. Phaedrus was a scientific prodigy. However, he dropped out of school because he felt that science just could not explain the world, therefore searching for other kinds of truth. Later, he became an English professor at Montana State University in Bozeman.
  • My past life, Phaedrus wanted to pin down the concept of Quality: that which makes something good. He found that Quality is neither something that objective or subjective; it transcends both. In fact, quality allows the world to be split into objectivity and subjectivity.
  • Chris. I have to warn you that you may have the same illness that Phaedrus and I have, which makes us go crazy. However, I believe that Phaedrus was, in fact, not crazy, but misunderstood by the people. l think I can finally understand what he was going through and can finally accept him.
  • Dad! Are you okay? Why didn't you open the Glass Door that connected you to us, our family? We could've helped you, but you decided to keep the Glass Door closed and remain by yourself!
