I must be losing it. This thread makes no sense to me at all.

It's a headscratcher, all right. Might make more sense after a certain number of pints, methinks. :P

At any rate, oddly enough I was reminded of this thread when one of my favourite songs popped up on my playlist today, so I thought I'd share this video. There's a funny story behind it - bear with me, it is relevant to this topic and to writing, in a way.

In the game Minecraft, although it's mostly a game you can play without any specific goals, there is an "end" as such that players can reach where you defeat a dragon and so on. Anyway once you've done that and the credits roll, a lengthy poem called "The End" appears (the developer actually commissioned a professional writer to write one) and scrolls on the screen. It's quite good, and there's lots of philosophical musing on our relationship with the universe and so on. Anyway, someone who is presumably a big fan of Minecraft later took various extracts and snippets from that poem and turned them into a song, all of which you can see in the music video which I'm linking to here, which is also quite thoughtful and has a lovely tune and visuals to boot.

"We are the universe; we are everything you think isn't you." Enjoy.

That was very enjoyable. Thank you for posting the link, cw. My grandchildren used to play Minecraft for hours. (Only after they'd done their homework, mind.) It seemed to be teaching them how to construct parks and buildings. Apparently there was more to the game than I thought.
