The mysteries continue … I continue to be bombarded with seemingly random thoughts that expose themselves to me with great clarity.
When I began writing, I used linear thinking. By this I mean I began writing A, then went next to B, then to C and so forth. However, at some point non-linear thinking showed up and I would find myself having no idea why I was writing something. I mean it did not seem to have any relationship to whatever book I was writing on at the time.

When he finished and following a long period of stunned silence, someone in the crowd yelled out, “Are you a god?”

He responded in another strong “No!”
A third person asked, “Are you a magician?”
