Hypothesis


Your imagination has no boundaries, as you envisage the best of me.

Dreamers do not survive on my planet. It is even impossible for you to dream of me.

I calculate why my heart is beating again, yet there is hardly any proof to support my conclusion.

Is my hypothesis relevant to this mission? Wouldn't asking this lead to another hypothesis?

I am a man of science, determined to solve this mystery... but I believe that this is beyond my understanding.

Why?

In order to discover the answer, it would mean betraying my heritage.

Haven't I already turned my back by volunteering, regardless of the doubts this mission held?

Soldiers have to be passionate about what they're fighting for, yet my heart is frozen because of it.

The feeling I search for no longer lives there.

What is love?

x

Love is life. Life is love.

Can't you see that?

x

You speak only nonsense.

My life is void of love. Love is void of my life.

How can you inform me of this? Have you ever experienced love?

x

There are many forms that love can take.

I love my family, friends... you.

x

What was that?

x

N-Nothing.

x

I take it that you have love in your life, and that without it you are seemingly dead.

It still doesn't clarify what love is.

x

Y-Yes.

Well, when you are in love, it is what functions your body.

x

Impossible... the human body functions purely on mind, heart and organs.

x

Heart. It functions on love when you follow your heart.

x

Like how my heart is beating rapidly at this moment?

x

O-Oh, I t-think s-so.

x

Are you in love, Retasu?

x

I have a hypothesis that is relevant to the question... why do you ask?

x

No reason.

Would you like to share that hypothesis with me?

x

If you're willing to do the same... Pai-san?

x

Would it make sense to you if we say it... together?

x

O-Oh, o-okay...

Three, two, one...

x

Can I love you?
