      Perhaps this article can be attributed to a 'defect of memory'
      like learning was to Plato, or perhaps it is a fantastic piece of
      creation. He either confused two different sources, or combined them
      into something new. Paul Veynes tells us that it is not any factual
      parts of myth that we learn from, but the fictional parts that are
      most valuable. Epictetus says he 'would rejoice in fiction if it
      brought him solitude'. Perhaps the columnist is no compiler of
      errata, but a fashioner of a Borgesian parable.
