The main idea is very simple.
The story is about the journey of an individual, in this case portrayed by a frog, who, certain day, is walking on the street when he is surprised by a needed choice of his own fate.
He is given three possible paths to choose: the going back path, the following his normal routine path and the risking and taking a walk on the unknown, looking for other dimensions, beings and conceptions of the world.
By choosing the unknown, the frog enters the main part of the narrative, some kind of a “epic journey” worth of a COMICs hero.
The unknown path (portrayed by the stairs) is a hard and windy path, and our hero, as he goes up, has visions (or hallucinations) about the meaning of life.
It’s almost as if this “going up the stairs” represents a spiritual and human ascension where the individual comprehends and experiences feelings and conceptions that until then, had never occurred.
