Looking for the Dream Machine

Today at lunch break a colleague told me about the very recent death of Satoshi Kon. I didn’t even know about his illness.  I immediately went to his website, Kon’s Tone, and what I saw was a page full of hundreds maybe thousands of questions marks. Only question marks. I can’t read Japanese at the office, no font. I can’t read Japanese at all, actually (except for the kanji for woman and the one for yen). But that page full of hundreds maybe thousands of question mark was so sad to watch.

Satoshi Kon left behind a final statement, in Japanese. I believe you should read it.
Here
you can find it in English, with translation notes.
