This was great. I didn't expect the old man to be such a badass when the young man attacked him. And I thought he was dead too...but I guess he was just playing dead? o_o It was also interesting to see their life flash before their eyes. Overall, really exciting, and it had nice themes. The young man's screaming and trying to justify himself was annoying though, but he did say some interesting things, and he represents how selfish people can be in close to death situations. The hug though by Ginko (lol) was touching, because he said that he never got to live. I really wonder what the old man said :/

Uhm, the difference between heaven and hell could perhaps be described as follows. If there is no desire then there is no hell nor heaven, because heaven could be defined as a place where your strong wishes are fulfilled and hell is where your strong fears are fulfilled. A fear would be a wish for something not to be fulfilled and hell would be a place where your strong wishes are not fulfilled. Desire would be defined as the act of wishing, If one would refrain from the act of wishing, then there would be no wishes to be fulfilled nor to be not fulfilled. Therefore nor hell nor heaven would exist for this person. Is it indifference and ignorance that this person now posesses? If a human can become such an existence, would it still be qualified as being human?
The old man accepts his choices in life, his deeds and their consequences - thus heaven if his mind would be allowed to continue living; the young man does not - thus hell.
A metaphore from the Gospel about heaven and hell: In both heaven and hell there would be people sitting at a table full of delicious food, however no person could bring their hand to their own mouth to eat. In hell no one was eating, in heaven they were feeding the people across the table.

Watch it twice in a row, conclusion:
I belive old man went to heaven and young to hell. This is why:
1 Mask on the top of elevator means nothing. The girl prove it asking where they went, after being there for a while she would have a clue and she did not.
2 Old Man had flashback of his life and realice he was dead just before the last part of the fight.
3 HE DECIDED TO STAY IN THE FLOOR, and get up just when all finish. This decition prove that he already knew what was going on in the room. Ask your self: if you know you died, and you are take to a life/dead match without any information, what you think would be the object of that extreme situation? For me is clear: observation.
4 the guy won the match, when he had no chance, after using violence. He could try to convince the old man to let him win and live.
5 The old man smiles at the end, he knew he won. he was aware of everything.
In this scenario the normal result is: who win the game, GOES TO HELL. The bartender have to be really used to see violent aggressions during the games.
My judgement here is that if the oldman decided to win(because in normal situation he would win the game, the bartender also said that the billard game was already set up), taking live from a young guy, after lived all that years and appreciated what life really is, he deserves hell. The young guy had no choise to win the game, as a result his only chances where: deep chat or beat an oldman with no mercyless.
There was 2 different results: Old man decides to let the young win after realice whats happening. Young man speaks to old man and convince him to let him win. Both cases they go together to heaven.
P.S: Old man was a bully? he fight a guy, who did never fight? Pussys
P.S2: Old man was not a soldier, he saw the USA bombing them when he was a kid, if not he would remember from the cabin of the plane... any way, is pretty obvious that the old man remind everything from his childhood to his last moments, opposite to the young.
P.S3: You fight a oldman in front of me like that and you will pray to go to hell because after i kick your ass im going to give the billard stick back to the old man and let him do with you what he wants... any guess?
P.S:4: Old man was a SMART ASS. Why everybody think he was bad? the only bad thing he did on the chapter was to kick a guy in highschool...
P.S5: Sorry for my english guys, i am learning.
