< Featured Quote / Monologue >
We live in a room, and there's a poster on the wall. We stare at it and we think that's the whole world. The room... and the poster. The picture's something nice - a landscape, a famous person. Like in that movie... what is it called? The prison movie. The room's a cell, and the picture, it's different for each of us. It can be beautiful or terrible, but we're all transfixed. But it's all a lie. Something to distract us from the truth. They're lying to us. We're lying to ourselves. The room's not the world, the world... is much bigger, and much stranger. There's a hole hidden behind that poster that leads to the real world. We all feel safe in that room. But sometimes... sometimes something crawls out from behind the poster, and the ones that see it happen freak out, and try to forget what they saw.
