What is belief, truth, and faith inside one's mind?
How confident are you in any recalled experience you've had if it is universally negated by those around you? How much or little effort does it take to convince you that things you've never experienced are true and those things you have experienced are false? What kind of direct experience is required to override an indoctrinated belief?
Don't feel bad. The kid in this cartoon sure doesn't know either! Something unusual happens to him in the mechanical tree garden and his mom insists he imagined it. He'll have to decide what he believes and act on it because there is no middle ground. Both his mom and the garden assure him that if he doesn't do what each of them desires, spectacularly horrible horribleness will befall him and the world in which he lives.
Electric games. Mech flora. Scary mommy. Snog porfer. Nightmare cooking. This is just the Prelude.
