Yes, that is the diagnosis: Schizophrenia. Well, as we all know that
such a diagnosis means that whatever that person says isn't worthy of
paying attention to any more than to the man behind the curtain! Nice
gambit, Hanson! You are a pro!

Actually, "time running out" is a "forbidden subject" and it runs out
for all of us Hanson, even you. Only at this time the choice of two ways
is far more important than before. And indeed your choice is between the
"black hole" of oblivion or continued wanking. But then your choice is
not my problem except in the sense that we are all of the one big happy
human family.
