The truth is, we each of us have an inborn conviction that the whole world, with everybody and everything in it, was created as a sort of necessary appendage to ourselves. Our fellow men and women were made to admire us and to minister to our various requirements.

There's another an idle nevertheless indispensable truth: all for themselves after all.

Those keeping that conviction become the narcissistic sociopaths of the world.

"we each of us"? The truth is, some of us would like to believe that each of us come from the same mold and turn out to share the same conceit; now it's excusable.

Does having no memory of any such conviction vis a vis this "truth", pre-natal or enduring, raise the question of my birth status?

I am only because you, dear reader, are?

I was not born, but you were therefore I am, and that's good enough for me.



"Now" is the eternal present.
