I mean who would look within and see the sensitive Mole? Far better to deal with the brash Victor who rejects everything Central stands for.
Of course it is true Victor is everything Mole wants to be, but isn't. I mean isn't Victor magnificent taking on the whole of Typology Central? What brio! What bravado!
It's as though Mole is the pilot of this large and powerful monster rampaging across the landscape of Central. He calls it as he sees it and lets the chips fall where they may.
Victor is reminiscent of the Wizard of Oz who appears as a giant head made from smoke and fire. This is Mole's alter ego. And this is the ego Mole inhabits, and with whom you cohabit.
