"It's interesting how in literature, the meaning of a character can affect the story of how it is lived. But, since the story is lived by the Reader, all the infinite meanings we all could derive are just different views of the same room. So how crazy would it be to believe that how the characters live their story, how my words describe it, and how you, the Reader, perceive it are one and the same? How crazy would it be to believe there's a harmony between them, you and me?"
- The Author, Chapter V "Hierophants"
“And did the Countenance Divine
Shine forth upon our clouded hills?
And was Jerusalem builded here,
Among those dark Satanic Mills?”
