John: Why am I here? It sounds like a stupid philosophical question, but seriously, I don't know why I am here. I guess it's not such a stupid question. I really see no purpose. recently I've been perseverating on making the Dark Idea a reality.
Jack: The Dark Idea is bad for you. You know this... Find something else to do with your time. Something that makes you happy.
John: Why what's wrong with the Dark Idea? I don't see anything wrong with it. It doesn't harm anybody. I have no purpose here. I know if I do the Dark Idea, I will be better off. But is it selfish...? I'm pretty sure the world will not care about the Dark Idea. I already proved that already.
Jack: Why do you want to do the Dark Idea. You know your family cares about you, shouldn't that be enough?
John: Everything that I was passionate about has been taken away from me. It's a loss. In order to survive, I had to let them go.
Jack: That's Life. Deal with it. a lot of people go through the same thing and they don't even think about the Dark Idea. If you do the Dark Idea you'll show the world that you're nothing but a coward.
John: The world doesn't care about me. I don't care about me. What difference does it make whether I'm a coward or not.
Jack: I think you do care. Because if you didn't care you wouldn't be contemplating the Dark Idea. In fact, you care so much that you don't want to face life if you fail. You're afraid of failure, John. Well, if you don't want to fail, then there's only one other choice. And let me tell you, you will never succeed if you do the Dark Idea. That's an automatic fail right there.
