I have been away for some time, yes. My host has been experiencing the early stages of a psychosis. He can no longer read literature for pleasure, merely for study. Memory lapses have plagued him and for a time I was tempted to leave his body and find a better one. However, he still has potential. As a novelist, he can put forth ideas that elevate him above the hapless victim of poverty he is. I have managed to stabalize his mental condition.
With the few resources he has, he can still write compelling stories about the will to take what is needed and to assert dominance through ideology or action. I intend to post some of his work on this site. They have the potential to equal Star Wars in philisophical context.
In any event, I have returned to contribute. This time, I won´t let my host falter again.
I fought on the battlefield. I retired to embrace a life of discovery and profit. I carve my own path in life and am better for it.
