The dialog is original and is written by Joshua Mosley. In the animation the type is hand-set using digitally sampled impressions of the individual letter forms from a 1941 printing of Pascal's Pensées. The following is a transcription of the subtitled dialog in the animation:

R:   it
P:   each thing is itself
R:   You have seen this?
P:   Each piece
       its own causes.
R:   It is –
       that is enough for me.
P:   it was the unseen wind
R:   it is not simple

R:   god ordered all that is.
P:   he is neither here nor good.
