Notes

  • Epigraph: And what we fear is what we have least cause to fear - our thorough annihilation; our reduction to nothing more than chemistry. We do not fear pain so much as we fear that we are neither epics nor immortal. We fear this in spite of the phenomena that crowd our lives with corroborative proof that an infinitely cunning, witty, meticulous and diabolical Intelligence shapes our destinies just as It has shaped the jellyfish, the birds and fish of the sea. 'Bible Student', Griffith Watkins.
  • Dedication: For Kate and the Captain from One of the Kings
