Stan: [high] What is the point of the Game?
Bog: [high] The point of the Game is that there's always another point, and another one, and another one, and so on, and so forth. The points become dots. The dots form a line. The line is part of a bigger circle - the circle of life. Kukaru is not screaming because he's afraid to lose his life. He's screaming because he's afraid he's not going to get anymore Pattern.

Pattern is the source of life. Without Pattern you die from the Satelite. But if you drink Pattern you are high. And Pattern is made out of humans. You are also human.
When you play the Game, it is pure luck. If you are lucky, someone's body part gets cut off and Pattern is made out of it and you get some Pattern so you can continue to live. If you are not lucky, then you don't get any Pattern, which means you die because you can't live without Pattern, and if you are very unlucky, they cut a body part from you and make Pattern out of you and feed it to somebody else, so you still die.
So, the point of the game is to get Pattern, and it is a pattern, because if you get Pattern, someone else doesn't get it, and they die, and you live, off them. There is no another way. Everything dies. Sometime.
We live on Planet Type 13 which will destroy itself eventually in nuclear wars. THEY live on Klaagia. So, I can't be high with Pattern because I don't live on Klaagia so there is no issue with the Satelites.
But, of course, in the real world, we all live off each other. If you want a heart transplant, you need someone else to die and give off their heart first. If you want food, cows are to die. Why does this happen? Because we are all infected with Satelites. Living.
