As we last found Buzz, he was down and depressed because he came face-to-face with his own mortality. The Devil’s draught tripped him up, and he found that he had limitations. Superheroes always suffer when they realize they are not gods, including Thor and Loki as well, who are demigods (purely in the make believe sense).
Buzz had to find himself. He needed something larger than himself that he could believe in. Did he find that in the Big Red Thingy? Would there be meaning in this great, manmade object?

“Hey Commander Turner! I can see your house from here!”
When asked if he found what he was looking for, Buzz replied: “No, but the view is quite astounding.”
He later commented that the Big Red Thingy was like a lot of manmade religions he has found on our planet. “Big, pretty, but empty on the inside.”
