The alphabet is male and female.  If you know the correct order of letters, you make a world, you make creation.  This is why they hide the order.  If you know the combinations, you make all life and death

- Don DeLillo, The Names

The Director

The more you make others squirm, squirm with fear, the higher up the corporate ladder you go. The ones you cannot make fearful, you get rid of. 

Soon you will have your team, the fearful and helpless.  They have great powers of repression, anger manifested in unrecognizable forms at home.

You think by controlling others, you buy yourself some time.  Time is what you need to distance yourself from the atrocities you created and now can deny or repress.  It's for the good of the company, the asset.  I'm doing her a favor, she did it to herself.  What have I done? When will they realize I'm a fraud, maybe they know already.  Hide away, what do I do all day?

I cannot hide from myself.  What's next. 


The Family

The family is the cradle of the world's misinformation.  There must be something in family life that generates factual error . . . perhaps the need to survive.

. . . we are fragile creatures surrounded by a world of hostile facts. Facts threaten our happiness and security.  The deeper we delve into things, the looser our structure may seem to appear.

The family process works toward sealing off the world
