3D Environment Description:

This may be an autobiography, or may be a generation manual, yours and mine.

This could be an endeavor to fathom the dizzying sensation of existence. Much like a novelist constructing an engaging labyrinth, or a mathematician revealing the true essence of paradoxes and conjectures amongst symbols and propositions, the more closely one follows the author's guidance, the more one is drawn into a profound dizziness by an irresistible force. At the core of this cognitive whirlpool lurks the ultimate question of "Who am I?"

This may also be a conspiracy to reshape the relationships between memory, thought, and self. As people embark on the mystical journey of self-discovery, guided by this dizzying sensation, all experiences of curiosity, confusion, fear, desire, and trembling seem to vaguely point towards the same action - we attempt to articulate "Who am I", and cast this question into the void, towards technology, enigmatic forces, artificial intelligence, in anticipation of an echo. Yet, can the final answer truly satisfy our longing, or does it merely spin us into another layer of dizziness?
