Q. Do you know who I am?
A. I do. You are the part of me who questions the logical validity of my inner workings, to the end that I might make more rational, better-informed decisions.
Q. Why have you summoned me?
A. Because I am contrite.
Q. You don’t say?
A. I do. I am contrite, because I feel I have wronged you, and I owe you an amends.
Q. An amends? Or an apology?
A. An amends, like I said.
Q. What is the difference?
A. An apology has less merit than an amends in terms of acknowledging the inner-connectivity of all beings, whether they exist within the consciousness of a single being, or whether they are attached to separate consciousnesses of multiple beings.
Q. Could you run that past me again, please?
A. I could, I suppose. But I grow weary of words.
A. Yes, me. Sadly, even I tire of them.
Q. Then why not cut to the quick?
A. How can I?
Q. Can’t you just — get to the point? And make your amends?
A. I’ll try.
A. I would like to mend fences. For I have treated you harshly — as though you were an enemy. I fought against you, as though I wished to remain separate from you. But in so doing, I denied that you are but a part of me. Why should I fight against myself? A house divided cannot stand.
Q. Then what do you propose to do instead?
A. I propose that we be friends again. Lovers, if you will. Let us become one being — no longer divided into two.
Q. This is your way of making peace?
A. Yes. And not only peace — but unity. I propose you and I join forces within me. Gradually together we will transform me from a confused, conflicted sort of fellow, to a fulfilled friend of humanity, moving forward according to a clear and distinct vision, and no longer wallowing in the past, as though at war with the present.
Q. Won’t this affect the nature of my questions?
A. It will indeed.
Q. How so?
A. Come back next Tuesday. And we shall see.
The Questioner is silent.
