  1. Funny how these two both had visions of Billy Boy and Hillary “The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to such a pass that he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others. And having no respect he ceases to love, and in order to occupy and distract himself without love he gives way to passions and coarse pleasures, and sinks to bestiality in his vices, all from continual lying to other men and to himself.” Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov

    • Fyodor Dostoyevsky sounds like he lived in the middle of chaos and magic hands. I call ‘magic hands’ the illusions that are put out to distract the simple people from the real depth of what is going on around them. Like magicians; the media, the politicians, and the propaganda groups wave their hands when news not favorable to their schemes are exposed. The entranced, not knowing they are being played, immediately are distracted by what those possessing the magic hands want them to believe.
