Another beautiful piece by Nelson Boles.
He's one of the best of new animation filmmakers around.

Interesting but there have been over the decades so many animated films made this way; the timeline of something where the something just repeats itself so I waited how it's going to end because no one knows how to come up with an ending for these merry-go-round synopsis, and he used the cop out of cop outs: it was just a dream. I say interesting because the 3D/2D technology was pleasant to watch, actually.

I think similarly to you in the respect of how the short ends. But I'm into it for it's contemplative dimension. It's not a film that stays with me emotionally, yet it brings a certain amount of surprising pleasantness which I so miss in films these days.
As for technique, I think there is no actual 3D in here. I believe it is drawn entirely in Flash and composited to feel 3D, so more like pseudo-3D.
the guy's talent is in keeping the focus in the content and not in technique.
