  1. If this isnt real, if we dont actually exist, then how do we define what we are? We are something, and someyhing is a thing that exists.

    • That idea is known as solipsism. Personally, I figure I should start getting suspicious if I notice any major plot holes in reality.
      The amusing irony of Millie bringing it up is that she very definitively isn’t real.

      • i always wondered if we where real….but at the same time if everything i lived is a dream and when i die i “wake up” into another dream and the story is the same…. and since it was a dream it has a chance that i could forget that…….
        i better stop thinking about this…

  2. How is it Millie’s fault that Ozy is wet? He left his hat on the ground head-hole up, it filled with rain, and he didn’t realize this until after he tried to put it on.

    And If he was referring to the possibility of him not existing, you cant be dry unless you exist first.

    • he was pretty wet before he put his hat on, as it was raining on his unprotected head. Likely, Millie was the only person worth standing in the rain with

  3. Whether we exist or not is not relevant. If everything is a simulation, well
    When we play a video game, we are interacting with a simulation that we enjoy. Life being a simulation changes nothing.
