1. Impossible to Move
Imagine waking up in a position like this. In chess, it’s called a stalemate. You are not dead yet, but you cannot move.
There is another key for interpreting this. Many secret cults took alcohol consumption as their prime ritual. The apparently unfortunate man is receiving his first communion. He will awake with an immaculate stomach, purged of all sins.
Of course, ceremonies often go too far. However, the god of alcohol is a merciful one. Offering pickles is the central tradition in the day after the first communion.
