Retelling the Tale

 

 

As the tale is retold it changes in the retelling:

In a dream-vision the dreamer asks

of Demosthenes the same question

as in the former yet, this time, the

answer differs (however slightly):

“No, the fact of my genius did not

spring from the placement of the

pebbles in my mouth, rather, it arose

from the placement of the pebbles in

my mind.”

Conditioned Reflex

 

They finally construct that perfect figure whose center is everywhere and circumference nowhere. Upon completion they decide that it is not bringing in a large enough profit and so convert it into a factory specializing in the fabrication of darkness.

None of the townspeople raise their voice for, naturally, they make up the bulk of the payroll.

At the Burial of a Dead Idea

 

 

 

 

The people came from miles around. A few had journeyed to pay their respects.  But most came out of curiosity or, more to the point, simply to gawk. They were rowdy and ill-mannered. They were foul-mouthed and foul of breath. They were hucksters hawking their wares and painted ladies selling their discount virtue.  They pressed in around the small plot where the minister was mindlessly mumbling the forgotten words of a forgotten prayer.  As it was lowered into the ground to its final resting place there was a tear or two among the mourners but mostly guffaws and loud hurrahs.

Master Matrix

 

 

 

 

A man driven by demons and the will to freedom finds a little piece of God’s mind in a bottle.

His first inclination is to set it upon an altar and build a cathedral around it but later decides to offer it to the Minister of Popular Culture for a handsome fee and, when this plan falls thru, he turns to peddling it in the marketplace (at drastically reduced  prices.)

ID EST

 

 

The Saint awakes one morning and decides to search for Truth. It is not an enviable task, in this day & age, but he has been selected by fate, he reasons, and so he persists. He immediately contacts the intelligence community and acquires all the latest equipment in electronic surveillance. It is a long drawn out and thankless task.

The years come and go, blowing by like chaff in the wind. Finally, he realizes that there must have been some mistake and he regretfully resigns his position.  As for a successor — he advertised in the papers but there were no takers. He, therefore, decides to write about his adventure in a long-winded monograph which is never published.

The paper’s conclusion: ‘Observe the survivors & learn.’
