Personally, I thought that was beautiful =)
I think it realy summarised life... You can work your whole life to achieve something, even if it's just for 15 seconds of glory!
While the outcome may have been ghory, he felt the best that he ever had, for those 2 minutes, because he'd achieved his life long dream. He'd worked his whole life for that. That sense of accomplishment!
As long as you have those 2 minutes, the rest of the world doesn't matter.
And even though he fell to his death, atleast he died happy.
I thought I'd also post what my friend said, I thought it was really deep. With his permission here it is:
"It does seem to reflect the inherent flaws in man's outlook upon life, specifically the ability to deny reality in order to make it more pallatable. It seems like a pretty good summary of human life, falling to fly and what not. Regardless, part of the beauty of life is the fact that its simply suicide. An eternal existance would be anything but meaningful."
Give me your opinions! I'd love to hear them =)
