Granted - You know exactly why that polar bear is there and what his purpose in life is. It's so amazingly simplistic and yet, extremely complex. The ying-yang of the situation drives you mad as you bite your finger nails until you reach your wrist. That's when you have the epiphany and it gives you a brain aneurism, then you die... But at least you know (or knew) why the polar bear was there and what purpose it served.
I wish to be a polar bear.
