POWERS. PERHAPS THEY ARE NOT AS ALL-ENCOMPa.s.sING AS THOSE OF THE CHRIST MYTH,.

BUT THEY ARE SUFFICIENTLY STRONG TO NURTURE YOUR DELUSIONS.

YOU WERE NOT ABLE TO SEE A PURPOSE TO.

YOUR LIFE, SO YOU CHOSE TO CAST YOURSELF.

IN THE ROLE OF A SAVIOUR. IT SERVES A DOUBLE PURPOSE: FIRST, IT REINFORCES ALL YOUR.

CHRISTIAN MORES, ALL THE THINGS THEY.

THOUGHT YOU SHOULD BELIEVE AS YOU WERE.

RAISED (THOUGH THEY WERE AS INTERESTED.

IN SUPPLYING YOU WITH MORES THAT WOULD.

KEEP YOU IN LINE AS MUCH AS THEY CARED.

ABOUT YOUR HAVING A CHRISTIAN UPBRINGING); SECONDLY, IT GIVES A PURPOSE AND.

MEANING NOT ONLY TO YOUR LIFE BUT TO THE.

ENTIRE UNIVERSE WHICH SOMETIMES SEEMS.

UNEXPLAINABLY CHAOTIC TO YOU-THE WARS.

AND THE SUFFERING, THE REST OF IT.

I am thirsty.

IN A MOMENT. I MUST FINISH WITH THIS FIRST.

YOU SEE MORSf.a.gEN CASTING DICE, FOR HE.

DESPISED AND ONLY USES YOU FOR HIS OWN.

ENDS. THE CLOAK SYMBOLIZES YOUR LIFE,.

YOUR PURPOSE, YOUR INDIVIDUAL IDENt.i.tY.

THERE SEEMS TO BE A HINT OF THE FUTURE IN.

YOUR DREAM, A MOMENT OF CLAIRVOYANCE,.

AND YOU SHOULD BEWARE THE MAN.

Go on.

YOU SEE CHILD AS A THREAT TO YOUR NEATLY BUILT THEORY. HE IS ANOTHER VIRGIN.

BIRTH, OF THE ORIGIN THAT YOU ARE OF. YOU.

REALIZE THAT HE HAD BUILT THE SAME SECOND-COMING THEORY TO EXPLAIN HIS OWN.

PURPOSE IN THE WORLD. YOU UNDERSTAND.

THAT SINCE HE HAS MET YOU, HIS LIFE PURPOSE HAS BEEN SHATTERED AND THAT HE IS.

HUNTING FOR ANOTHER ANSWER. YOU DON'T.

WANT TO HAVE TO DO THAT YOURSELF. YOU.

DON'T WANT TO HUNT.

THE WOMAN, MELINDA, IS ALSO A THREAT TO.

YOUR PURPOSE (OR, RATHER, TO THE FANTASY.

PURPOSE YOU HAVE CREATED FOR YOURSELF).

CHRIST COULD NOT FALL PHYSICALLY IN LOVE.

WITH A WOMAN. BUT YOU HAVE. ADMIT IT. THIS.

IS YOUR PURPOSE IN LIFE. LISTEN AND KNOW.

THAT YOUR PURPOSE IS TO LOVE AND COMFORT.

AND TO BE LOVED IN RETURN. OTHERWISE, YOU.

FACE ONLY SCHIZOPHRENIA.

Could that be a purpose, though?

IT IS THE OLDEST PURPOSE. WASH YOURSELF.

CLEAN OF FALSE PURPOSES. ALLOW ME TO ESTABLISH A SERIES OF PERSONALITY TAPES TO.

REINFORCE YOUR FALTERING SENSE OF REALITY AND TO SUBDUE THIS CHRIST SYNDROME.

THE REASON YOU LIVE IS TO LOVE. SO IT IS.

WITH MOST HUMAN BEINGS. DON'T SEARCH.

FOR A LARGE PURPOSE, FOR MORE COMPLEX.

MEANINGS, FOR THE WHY OF THE WORLD OR.

THE REASON IN HATE AND WAR. BE SATISFIED.

THAT YOU KNOW YOURSELF. IT IS A WISE MAN.

WHO KNOWS HIMSELF.

WE WILL PROCEED WITH THE HEALING.

NOW*.

The following morning, as I stepped out of the elevator near the top of the AC complex, Harry intercepted me before I had taken more than four steps toward the room where Child waited for another session. His round face was drawn, pale, and lined with heavy creases that had not been there before. He looked as if he had not slept all night. A cursory examination of his rumpled clothe
