    I think they just represent us, we always play phone or games that means we are always running from reality, we became addicted to it and without it you feel anxious, lost, and feel like you cant live without it
    Well maybe if you arent like that but that's just represent our generation

    What if Kimmy is Arthur's childhood best friend but died when they were kids, and the reason he's so attached to the tech is cause he misses her, and wishes she was still around? Hmmm...
