      It’s confusing

      I can imagine! Interesting thought experiment.

      I copied and pasted this very short story from the original site because it uses javascript and makes it funky to read (and I couldn't get it to read to completion on ReadUp). So I watched this movie last night called The Truth, and it's about an aging movie star and her daughter. It's a French film (with some English, thanks to the ever delightful Ethan Hawke), and the movie within the movie is this short story. It's a gem. (Both the movie and this story!)

        Great find. The movie sounds very interesting, a definite to look into.

      I found this intriguing, touching, even though I usually don’t like science fiction. The short story format is a favorite of mine. Each word is essential, like poetry. Condensed yet meaningful, powerful.
