I vaguely remember having read about a pilgrim whom desperately wanted to escape the confines of his Hell. To achieve his freedom, he was directed by his daemon to journey untold hardships for a trillion miles.
Imagine such distance; eons of time; worlds passed away.
Alone, naked and radiant, he finally surmounted the last crag … only to be told that he must endure another trillion miles.
