NATE: I don't want to be late for my funeral.
NATHANIEL: You've got plenty of time. Hell, you've got nothing but time--which doesn't exist anyway...
...NATHANIEL: I just need you to answer a few questions for me...
NATE: Am I dead?
NATHANIEL: Do you believe that your consciousness affects the behavior of subatomic particles? Do you believe that particles move backward and forward in time and appear in all possible places at once? Do you believe that the universe is constantly splitting into billions of parallel universes?
NATE: What the fuck do I care?!
NATHANIEL: You only get one choice, so you may want to think about it.
NATE: Just tell me, am I dead? Yes or no?
NATHANIEL: Yes. (pause) And no. Some places you're dead. Some places you're alive. Some places you never even existed. Possibly. Theoretically. Or who knows...

the veils are thin this time of year.
"All that lives, lives forever. Only the shell, the perishable, passes away. The spirit is without end, eternal, deathless.."
