The child/ghost are only passive viewers, the child on the first frame is watching the skeleton taking a selfie, it is through observation that we make sense of the world. In the second frame we see a child in the foreground, blending in with the atmosphere unaware of his isolated existence in space. Finally, we have a ghost observing a memory of a past
