There are two paths leading up to the summit on the mountain.
The mountain is the universe of Mind, Heart, and Knowledge.
The scales of justice, held by blindfolded Athena have innocuously, with no offense, decided that fiction is just a fact told yesterday or… planning to be told in the future.
The only fact is this very moment.
It’s an eternal chase with each in-breath and out-breath, but the final breath happens where both paths meet at the top.
Breathing ends with the fact of death and time claims fiction.
