Pascal's wager is an argument in philosophy presented by the seventeenth-century French philosopher, mathematician and physicist, Blaise Pascal (1623–1662).
It posits that humans bet with their lives that God either exists or does not. The picture, refers to the myths of ancient Greece (Charon carrying souls across the Styx River), Dante (“lasciate ogni speranza voi ch'entrate”, - according to Dante this is purgatory ), Dürer ( lion with a black face is a reference to Dante, engraving melancholy), and modernity.
The four creatures in the upper right corner, are the four types of human character. Choleric, sanguine, phlegmatic and melancholic. The flame divides the picture into two. This is purgatory according to Dante. On the right side, the creatures came for souls that might go to heaven, in the left corner to hell. But it's all not important, the main idea of the picture, is two trees, cross to cross. Whatever happens, we will not be able to return again to our familiar world anymore. Our time is over.
As long as we are on this side of the trees ( in front of this picture), we have to choose, because if we are on the other side - we can’t change anything.
Whatever happens, we will not be able to return again to our familiar world anymore. Our time is over. Therefore, do not wait for your time to end. Live !!!
