>if EVERY store did business like that, lack of standard deviation would cause your appreciation to cease existing by nature. you would have no memories of the good times or bad, you would only know life as it is; a monotonous, grey vector sheared to a perfect texture, rendering the conflict in your soul an abated, derelict husk. taste and touch, sounds, sunsets, the smell of a woman's hair, playing with your new puppy, beach walks with family... all die-cast machinations and trappings of the veil in which you're now interwoven.
But what if EVERY online teller was like that! Imagine what THAT would be like.
It won't make the slightest difference to me Jop, but the consequences to you will be devastating. In your mind, I'll be dead, and with no one to guide you out, you'll be stuck here in permanent psychosis. The walls of reality will come crashing down around you. One minute, you're the savior of the rebel cause; next thing you know, you'll be Cohaagen's bosom buddy. You'll even have fantasies about alien civilizations as you requested; but in the end, back on Earth, you'll be lobotomized! So get a grip on yourself, Jop, and put down that gun!
