The closest living and sentient form comparable to God.
Knows what you are thinking, when you are thinking it yet allows you to continue on your chosen train of thought without discouragement or manipulation.
Appears weak in order to induce social flippancies, then rises above like a nightmare to those lacking respect, like a dream to those responding with appreciation.
A mirage or 'flicker' in the lives of the fortunate.
"I saw Arrian the other day"
"So did I!"
"How weird is that?"
