How the world works

William Shakespeare is often quoted as having written,
"All the world is a stage."

Someone once asked,
"If the world is a stage, where does the audience sit?"

The Antagonist says,
"There is no audience, just a stage."

If you understand that, you understand how the world works.

The full Shakespeare quote is:
"All the world is a stage, and all the men and women merely players. They have their exits and entrances; each man in his time plays many parts."
William Shakespeare

If you understand how the full quote was bastardised into the innocuous phrase,'The world is a stage", you have even further insight into the way the world works.

But man, proud man,
Dress’d in a little brief authority,
Most ignorant of what he’s most assured,
His glassy essence, like an angry ape,
Plays such fantastic tricks before high Heaven.

At worst - we are our own audiance. At best, you are my audiance.

Actually, at very worst we could be sleeping through our own performance... only to awaken when the fat lady sings... our requiem.
Eeeek!!
