Prompt: How do you know you’re alive?
I am no surer I’m awake than I’m alive. I could be the character in your story, an avatar in a computer game, a figment of your imagination. Can you hear me? Am I there with you? I could be a speck on an ant in another universe or another universe could be a speck on an ant here. How big is a foot without context? There is no context.
