English term or phrase:to find oblivion
Fredric Brown's (1906-1972)"Solipsist" :science fiction, philosophycal story Tone:lighthearted, humourous, ironic. The story deals with one of the most intractable problems in philosophy-the question raised most powerfully by David Hume, as to whether what we see out there is really out there. Brown dramatizes a pun on the word "solipsist" and the Genesis creation myth. Behind that play of word and idea is a serious theme. The protagonist's name is Walter B. Jehovah. One day he decides to become a practicing solipsist. When he tries to will himself out of existence, a voice talks to him. One of the first things the voice says to him is: "And now that you have taken my place-" There was a deep sigh. "-I can finally cease my own existence, find oblivion, and let you take over."
