You, Them and I
"Again: I cannot read the minds of my characters or manipulate them since you have a 'free-will.' It's a controversial paradox; I'd rather not confuse you with too much knowledge . . . for now . . . you have so much ahead of you. Can you imagine all the wonders that can happen within one page? Even in one sentence . . . everything can change . . . can you imagine what that means for you? For me? Imagine a story of this length, this width and this depth . . . "
- The Author, Chapter II "You, Them and I"
“Who is the third who walks always beside you? When I count, there are only you and I together But when I look ahead up the white road
There is always another one walking beside you.”
-The Waste Land; What the Thunder Said, T.S. Eliot
