This is our story.
Final Fantasy X’s story is, to me, about harsh truths, about casting off lies that make our lives easier.
Let’s take the wedding, for example.
Seymour used false hope to pry on Yuna’s heart - she considered his proposal (at first) because it would bring joy to the people - but why should they be joyed? They would be happy that their great public figures were in love, but Yuna had no intentions in falling in love. For her, it was a path to false hope (further solidifying Lulu’s statement about defeating sin and marrying being two paths to one goal - both propogate happiness in the face of something that is not real.) Seymour himself was being false in his intentions, he did not marry Yuna as a Maester of Yevon, it was not so much a show to the world as a show to her - he was courting her and needed to get closer to her, he wanted her to love him. (Yet perhaps one thing I really find interesting about their relationship - they do show and display moments of complete honesty to one another. Yuna is not afraid to express the true weight of her anger and let her mask slip, and Seymour gives his most honest line to her in the form of “you would pity me now?” But this is a rant for another day.)
In the end, dreams - no matter how pleasant, have to be thrown away in the face of truth. When Yuna learned of Seymour’s black past, she was false to him in that the wedding was not about joy, any more, but about either redemption or prison for Seymour. In the end, when she threw herself off the building, it was a way of casting off the falsity - it mirrors what she would do in the end, by believing in herself and taking risks she could bring an end to false hope.
In the end, Tidus was the final fantasy (hUR) that needed to be dispelled. He was pleasant, just as pleasant as the dreams Maesters weaved for all of Spira to sleep on - he carried promises of a brighter future and brought with him wonder and happiness, but he was not real. He is the final piece in the bitter sweetness of casting away false hope - he is the personal, more tangible and relate-able manifestation of false hope.
And so he had to go.

You wish your neurons were this pretty
Greg Dunn, having a Ph.D in neuroscience, was inspired to do this artwork by seeing neurons treated with certain stains. The neurons he saw in his microscope reminded him of the Asian art he loved so much already and went on to paint neurons in the Asian sumi-e style.
