Pauling didn't seem to have expected such a quick reply on the 'could be dead' theory, having initially seen it as a dead end. But it wasn't that that shut him up, but rather some self reflection. As he thought back, searching for the very last thing he could remember before here, he was overcome with a wave of dread. His expression nothing short of haunted, he withdrew from the conversation.
Hesitantly he spoke again, steeling his face back to a neutral expression, his voice calm through sheer willpower.
"Alright, I will suspend my disbelief that the afterlife even exists. What, traditionally at least, purpose does Purgatory serve? Is it an endless waiting room between the extremes that are heaven and hell or is it one last trial to get somewhere?"
