I’ve begun my voyage in a paper boat without a bottom; I will fly to the moon in it. I have been folded along a crease in time, a weakness in the sheet of life. Now, you've settled on the opposite side of the paper to me; I can see your traces in the ink that soaks through the fibre, the pulped vegetation. When we become waterlogged, and the cage disintergrates, we will intermingle. When this paper aeroplane leaves the cliff edge, and carves parallel vapour trails in the dark, we will come together.
Dunno if this is the place to ask but I've been trying to decipher what the fuck the speak is talking about in this quote. For those who don't know it's from the "game" titled, "Dear Esther".
Anyone wanna help me out? This game has quite a few quotes that really stand out to me for some reason, yet I have no idea what in the hell they mean!

i'm taking an intro to philosophy course in university. though i enjoy the class, the curriculum has been a little iffy. the philosophers and non-philosophers we have gone over are:
>Plato (Apology, Phaedo)
>Epictetus (The Enchiridon)
>Augustine (On Choice and Free Will)
>Dante (The Divine Comedy)
>Rousseau (Discourse on the Origin of Inequality)
i'm reading philosophy chronologically on the side using Classics of Philosophy (Pojman/Vaughn) on the side, and while Hesiod and Dante are obviously not in it, neither are Montagne and Rousseau. although i'm still reading Aristotle, i'm confused as to the choice of Montagne over Descartes, or Rousseau over Hume/Kant. from my understanding they have a much larger impact on the study as a whole? from what i've learned of Montagne/Rousseau, they hardly seem all that important. what do you guys think?
also, if /lit/ could teach an intro to philosophy course, what would the curriculum be?
