…And maybe this life is simply a conjecture posed by some phantom that decides to only exist when it can coexist in the minds of its creations.
An apparition is only tangible when it can subsist on fire. That is to say that, ambition and exceptionalism are driving forces in bringing the phantom to life. A succubi of sorts, parasitic in nature, the phantom lingers.
What may be an extended allegory for a meaningful existence is merely the presence of the phantom. An invisible force that is in fact a driving force. Control is impossible but temporary dominance is achievable.
Warm and enveloping, the phantom places its host in an intimate embrace. If the host accepts its strange bedfellow, the potential of this partnership is simply immeasurable.
