Avenir 1: I have heard of being in two minds before, but this approaches the farcical.
Avenir 2: More like the tragic.
Avenir 3: And yet, this raises all sorts of intriguing possibilities! Imagine the consequences of multiple selves abroad in the world!
Avenir 4: Yes, fascinating. Should there not be another one, though?
Avenir 2: I would be a lot happier about multiple selves abroad in the world if we had also managed to multiply the carrot supply.
Avenir 1: What do you mean, another one?
Avenir 3: But, think of the implications! Which of us is the original? Which are the copies? What is the difference between us? What about the soul?
Avenir 1: I am.
Avenir 3: What?
Avenir 1: I am the original. All the rest of you lot hopped off the platform as soon as you were created.
Avenir 2: Are you going to finish your carrot?
Avenir 4: Remember? What Bradley said? Something about a goatee and eye-patch?
Avenir 3: Yes! A pirate version! Infinite Avenirs, exploring all our potential personalities unto the end of time itself!
Avenir 2: (muffled by carrot in mouth) Sounds ghastly.
Avenir 1: (examining the console) You know, there is a reverse switch.
Avenir 4: Do you not feel as though there is something we have collectively forgotten?
Avenir 1: Oy! All of you! Get back on the platform!
Avenir 3: Do not attempt to manipulate me, sirrah! I am Avenir Unbound, free to be you and you and you and me!
Avenir 2: Oof, I think some of that was carpet. Bleah.
Avenir 4: Oh, well, I guess it is of no importance.
Avenir 1: Now, Cochin! Now!
(A flash, and only one Avenir remains.)
Avenir: Why does my mouth taste like carpet?
