I decided to portray an alternate reality from the viewpoint of the “higher beings” posited by the simulation theory. They have succeeded in creating a simulation of the living experience as we know it. A human being is seen on the screen, going through a drug induced hallucination of an alternate reality. The human is unaware of any such reality and waits for a huge door in front of him to open, flushing him with blinding white light.
For a more profound realization that the subject is being observed, there are two beings (a Gromflamite and Zeep Xanflorp) who can be seen in the reflection of the screen, along with a hint of light from an open door. These characters are a reference to “Rick & Morty”, a show which extensively explores existential and scientific themes in a wackadoodle multiverse.
