When? Just now.

Where? Over there.

How? Easily.

Who? Charles.


Who is Charles?

The final inquiry. The culmination of human endeavor.

The room in which the final course is being served in the waning moments of Mans woefully brief existence.


Who is Charles?

Voices from the dining room, speaking quickly and urgently over the tinkling of silverware and heirloom china.

Finally the cries of a squinting sailor with a mouthful of greens, I am what I am.

The identity operator, A=A. The ultimate question and its obvious anwer.
