this has a lot of symbolism and if your not too good with that then you wont get it ok? the going to the moon is him slowly leaving his body and being a little wasted at the same time. the woman is is ideal thing to see before he dies. the train was going towards the afterlife. the guy in the mask was deaths gate keeper and/or train facilitator to the afterlife. the masked guy on the train decided that it wasnt his time and sent him back. although this is all merely a set of opinions it is prettey effective (in my opinion) at explaining the previously unexplained for those people who arent good at deriving symbolic meaning



Rated 4 / 5 stars

I found it intriguing..

As interesting as it was,
I still felt like it was spelled out quite a bit.
The last scene almost told too much in a way.
I understand from the artist's written interpretation under the comments.
But I feel everyone including myself can come to their own conclusion.
The author need not make something as symbolism drenched as this
and not expect everyone to form an opinion of what the imagery was to them.
Representation is in the eye of whoever chooses to see it.
Anyone and everyone can interpret a work how they feel.
I find a meaning in all the imagery and I find it wonderful work.
It may look slightly dated now but I imagine it was one of the best flashes then.
It has held up really well despite the new artistic blood pumping in Newgrounds.
I hope others see this and come to their own personal views and ideas.
