As the esoteric and the unknown are revealed for what they truly are, we rewrite the rules. Now we have to decide whether to hang on to the rules of the past, make up new rules (which is essentially the same thing), or admit (& revel in the fact that) there are no rules.

From 'Franklyn' written and directed by Gerald McMorrow:
"If a god is willing to prevent evil but not able, then he is not omnipotent.
If he is able but not willing, then he must be malevolent.
If he's neither able or willing, then why call him a god.
Why else do bad things happen to good people."

"Life's too much of an adventure as it is to make anything else up."

& then we got the old,"I'm not gonna get in a discussion over who's imaginary friend is tougher." ( A really poor paraphrasing of Stephen King, I think. So sorry.)
The past is just that...
Let us face the future.

      Thank you, Moulik Mistry. Kinda abstract in my presentation, but the lines from the movie, Franklyn, stirred me as did the pic of my Dad and I in North Carolina in the Fall of '69.
