Protagonist: You mean ‘we’?
Narrator: No, me. You obviously don’t remember so it must be just me.
Protagonist: That’s not fair, I’m you too! But, why the hypnosis? Were you trying to meet me?
Narrator: Actually, no. My psychiatrist recommends weekly sessions to relax. I just wish they weren’t so expensive…
Protagonist: But, have you met me before?
Narrator: No, I don’t think so. I don’t remember my sessions. I just feel better afterwards.
Protagonist: You don’t think you remember me? So you might have met me before? Why don’t I remember?
Narrator: Well, the left side of the brain, me, is associated with memory… maybe you just aren’t able to form new memories? You seem to remember our previous life just fine.
Protagonist: But if we met this time, then it must have happened before. How long have you been doing this, uh, hypnosis?
Narrator: No more than three years.
Protagonist: Three years! So what happened to those times? They might as well not have happened!
Narrator: But, you are here now. Isn’t that enough?

Narrator: I don’t know exactly, but probably soon.
Protagonist: So, what happens to me? Do I… die?
Narrator: (consoling) Don’t worry…
Protagonist: Don’t worry!!! (begins to pace and wring hands) How could I not? You, and your… hypnosis, gave me life. And for what? To relax?...
