An existential idea brought to life

As a philosophy student I have come to admire the art of establishing real world concepts and ideas in the form of fictional works. The father of existentialism, Jean Paul Sartre put forth his notion of what lies beyond human perception of the world, and for him it is subjective. The "Absurd World," as he dubbed it, is the way in which physical phenomena exist without the human lense. This fictional story takes Sartre's idea and deep dives down a rabbit hole to learn how such an understanding of the world might affect a person stripped of their human lense. Let the absurdity begin.
