It is a spiritual question
It's not a question of graphics - neither resolution nor bits of color. Yes, my GeForce 4 can make things come alive... on the screen, not for my perception. There're two essential sides of my spiritual ingredient: active and passive. Active stands for eternity and power and passive for... fable and dreaming. That's the case. It's more than enough to say this is a wonderful ASCII tale.
If it was 10 times longer, it wouldn't be enough.
The Bottom Line
For anyone it will be the same that he is.
