The Tale of Thadeus
Thadeus was really unhappy with his life.
He wanted to change things, he really did, but then he got hit by a car and died.
His final thoughts were something along the lines of… No. Not now. Not yet. I’m not ready to die.
Thadeus awoke in a room of pure white. The details of the following moments are unclear, but he knows that the White Room is giving him an opportunity. He must write, paint, carve, draw, play, imagine, etc. (create) a world where he will have another life… he will live on the world he creates as an immortal until the world comes to a natural end. He comes to the realization that the world he came from, Earth, could have very well been authored by someone who came to this very same White Room that he finds himself in, and that one, many, perhaps all of the beings on the world he creates could find themselves in the very same place.
So his “world” that he creates is two objects. A book and a remote. The book is a constantly updating list of every available world, a brief description, and a code. When the code is entered into the remote, it will take him to the world, giving him immortality until the world comes to a natural end. But before that happens he leaves to a new world, and thus has voluntary immortality.
Robbed of the only mortality he will ever have, Thadeus’ lust for life fuels him through an unfathomably lengthy existence until he reaches enlightenment. He realizes that in all those years he was greedily chasing after life, experiencing everything there is to experience, he was never truly living. Life has no value without death.
Thadeus sits atop a cliff and witnesses for the first time what can only be described as a nuclear sunset— the end of a world. It is the most beautiful thing he had ever laid eyes upon.
