      The nearly indomitable
      power of illusion is a
      slight of hand or word
      so smooth as to appear
      as truth. To surrender
      to the allure of death
      as an escape from pain
      is at the same time an
      awful abandonment both
      of faith and hope, and
      a willingness to die a
      literal death. This is
      known in retrospect as
      losing life as a means
      of dispelling illusion

      Transcendence is never
      revealed via a preview
      that lets you know the
      net is there. The leap
      is only taken in total
      abandonment, no safety
      rope to cling to, only
      utter despair and pain
      devoid of all feelings
      and all faith and hope

      Transcendence is faith
      in reverse, a paradox.
