That’s a big increase in muscle mass for ya
I can safely say I didn’t see this coming.
The sweat band is a big improvement over the bandage. Looks good on him.
I’m wondering if the extra muscle is symbolic of the inner strength he’s gained through some measure of awareness.
Perhaps, when he is enlightened, he won’t need stairs and lifts. He just won’t be there any more. But now, in small ways, the physics of that world are flexing to his will.
Interesting idea. This afterlife tends to cleave more towards Buddhist thinking than Judaic/Christian/Islamic thinking. At least I think so.
If Ter is in a Buddhist hell, then his desires have weighed him down to this level, and this story is a progression of confronting and overcoming base desires on his path to enlightenment. If he’s been damned by the god Yahweh, then he’s damned forever, and nothing he can do for himself can ever change anything for all eternity.
Didn’t think of that, Brett, but that’s a great thought.
As the plot gets deeper, I begin to wonder how much Koren had this mapped out…
