A Thought Provoking Short Story

Any additional comments?

This story is a perfect example of how Robert Sheckley often hides a deep message within the confusing riddle of his stylistic stories.
Sheckley forces us to redefine words, question reality, and all in all examine what it means to be human.

One aspect of this story involves an entire race of alien beings whose job it is to collect purple and put it onto a giant mound of other purple. See what I mean?

On first listen, parts of this story might come across as utter nonsense, but if you listen again carefully, you will see the true genius of this author.
