Tumbling down staircases is fun, if it isn't going to hurt.
Being a zombie is very freeing from human angsts.
Being deluded is fun and empowering.

There might a staircase at the end more infinite than the first.

Excellent work Drago if you did that, amazing find if you didn't.

Question authority. How do you know, that you know, what you know?

Afraid it was just a lucky find.
I asked for "Escher stairs" - there are a LOT of versions - Lego, cartoon, Star Wars . . .

Well, of course, the Elvis Weathercock resides in the chamber at the top of the tower . . . or is it the bottom?

Naw. We're not deluded zombies. We're ugly bags of water who draw funny pictures. (Star Trek reference for the uninitiated)

Is there any way to reverse the Escher animation? It would be interesting to see the two together: Those who see the glass half empty and vice versa perhaps.

Oh, my!
