When You Were Pixels (Syntax #0.1)

When You Were Pixels (Syntax #0.1) - Julio-Alexi Genao Sublime. A tightly-crafted, elegant short story that utilizes the freedom of science fiction to expose truth. Questioning now while projecting the discourse onto another plane, circling around and bringing us back to our human condition--now. Well done. Antho--existing in stasis, a sober and sterile life that is both better and worse, awakens one day. Choices. Why? Sometimes the answers are unclear, but he starts a dance--between love and sorrow, accepting both as a panacea to the emptiness that enveloped him before.Before love.
