A man is sitting on a chair in a room. He has been sitting there for so long that he’s unable to get up. He is immersed in thought: where do we come from? Who created us? Or was it just coincidence? Is there life after death? What if this room is only a product of my imagination? What if the world itself is only imagination? And: do I exist?
