  • Messed up life of a woman is messed up even more by her trying to make it better. In the end we find out that her life was perfect before trying it change it.

    This episode is great. I love it because you have first of all a magnificent building that looks small from the outside but once you enter it turns into a huge interior space, pretty much like houses in cartoon shows. Second of all, the idea that there are very powerful beings (gods?) who keep control of peoples lives from books in which each person's life is recorded.

    I wonder if I would make the same thing, our poor distressed lady did in this episode and rewrite the lives of those who were pestering her in some way. When I look at my life I would definitely do it and not repeat the same mistakes over again although without those mistakes I wouldn't have learned.
