Dialogue Appropo Of Nothing
"...of course there can be no true monologue."
"What? What of Hamlet's soliloquy?"
"A solitary actor, to be sure - but his lines shared with the audience, each in their own minds delivering a reply."
"I disagree, surely there is the interior monologue we all have running, as a background to our lives..."
"Our conscience? Jimminy Cricket, our guardian angel or perhaps a tempting dæmon, Goofus or Gallant? Are we not talking to God? Is God talking back?"
"What is the sound of one voice, yapping?"
"So it boils down to this. If there is an omnipotent force, all knowing, then everything is known, heard and interpreted."
"Or not. Then it is nothing."
"How many people live inside/outside of your head?"
"Real or imagined?"
"Does it make a difference?"
"There is a reality, and if you believe it an illusion, place your hand on the table and I will stab it with this ice-pick."
"I get your point."
"Point, set and match."
"Violence never proves anything...OUCH!"
