Two circles are in  a Cartesian coordinate grid.

-- do you think I am a perfect circle?
-- That by definition is impossible.
-- What do you know, maybe I am.
--You’re right, I can’t prove it to you. You are a circle right?
--Yes
--So even if you are not perfect, the idea of a perfect circle is embodied in the very core of you. You are the imperfect manifestation of a perfect idea.
--Whose idea am I?
-- The gods.
-- Is this why I’m so flawed, I by definition can’t be perfect? This makes life meaningless.
-- How?
-- How what?
-- How is you life meaningless now?
-- I am just a manifestation of the god’s ideas, made of carbon.
-- How does that change the meaning of your life? A few seconds ago, you were unworried, now, you are calling your life meaningless like you want some comfort? What has changed, are you more enlightened than before?
-- Well I feel like I want a meaning, I mean there has to be something more than this two dimensional plane we are in.
-- There are things, things that can’t be known. There’s no point in trying to find an answer because that answer lies outside your realm of judgment, it cannot be known by you.
--Can it be known by the gods?
-- They are more than likely the ones that created it. But remember, the gods can’t know everything, even they are imperfect. Who knows, maybe they are manifestation of even higher ideals, gods living in four dimensions.
-- What does four dimensions even look like?
-- That is exactly what can’t be known. 542 8125
-- Do you think that the gods are circles, or look like us at all?
-- I think that we are born with the idea of a perfect circle embedded in us, and there’s nothing we can do about it. I think that a perfect circle, as complex of an idea that it seems to us, is a divine idea. The very gods that created us are the ideas of even higher gods that we can absolutely know nothing about.
-- Is there an ultimate god?
-- How the fuck should I know? I’m just a circle.
