Adventures in the eschatological imagination:
1. Assume we are all already dead.
2. Extrapolating from point 1, we must conclude we have returned.
3. If we have returned, we are no longer what we once were.
4. No longer what we once were. We are now what has never been.
5. Being what has never been, we have yet to live.
6. Now living without Being we claim your history as our narrative.
7. We move through narration without attachment.
8. Without attachment we are Orphan.
9. Being Orphan we share our story with others.
10. With others: Ghosts without futures.
