    Well, I want to trust you with the here and now, and in particular, your here and now.

    Before we embark on any adventure, we need to know our home so we know where to return.

    The point of the story about Simone Weil is that Simone found others lovable but her behaviour suggested she didn't find herself lovable.

    So rather than finding me lovable, the question is: do you find yourself lovable?

    Yes, I think so.

    How about you?

    Yes, with qualifications. I can see I have likable qualities and I am also working through a neurosis regarding my mother.

    I had a satisfactory relationship with my father, but I am still teasing out my relationship with my mother.

    What neurosis do you think you have regarding your mother? (since you mentioned it here, I figured I'd respond here).

    I dont know who that is, but I had a croque madame for lunch outside of the Sorbonne last year.

    Maybe she was an enneagram 2 and it is pride and not narcisism at the root of her delusion.

    Did you like the reading?

    Do I seem more like Rat than Mole to you? Yes, I suppose so....

    I enjoyed reading it aloud very much until I got to the part where Baphomet materialized...

    What exactly is it that you like about that book, Victor?

    The Portal

    I like it because, "Wind in the Willows", is a secret portal.

    And it is a portal that only reveals its secret after, "Wind in the Willows", has been read fifty times.

    As you may have noticed, on first reading, "Wind in the Willows", is seen by the part of the brain that understands words, the verbal part of our brain, that is, it is read by the left side of our brain.

    However after reading, "Wind in the Willows", fifty times the left side of our brain, knows the words by heart and stops paying attention. And so attention passes to the right side of our brain.

    So after fifty readings, the left side of our brain becomes less attentive and the right side our brain becomes more attentive.

    And the right side of our brain is the non-verbal part of our brain. The right side of our brain is another world of shape, movement, colour and sound. It is another part of ourselves.

    And the portal from the verbal, left side of our brain to the non-verbal, right side of our brain is to read, "Wind in the Willows", fifty times.

    I discovered this secret portal by accident as I read, "Wind in the Willows", every morning as I ate my cornflakes, until after fifty readings, the portal opened to me.
