Exploring

Exploring in improv means to make moves that help to find the logic, philosophy or rationale behind an absurd character.

The voice of reason may attempt to come up with a justification. Otherwise, the absurd character might have a consistent philosophy to describe their motivations.

Exploration supports increasingly ridiculous specifics as they come up with one simple consistent point of view or reasoning. A character's game will explore a consistent philosophy throughout the scene and therefore won't have to find a new one as new specifics are developed. After resting the game, they would continue to find a new way to connect their original logic to new scenarios.
