He has to be a mind visitor, a hypnotherapist and a professional athlete. He has to be familiarized with machinery of all kinds as well as products of all kinds as well as he must know the present costs of every little thing, from a shoe-string to a sky-scraper.

Having actually come across only one man with the above credentials as well as finding out that he was tortured some 2000 years earlier, as well as though some, in their day-to-days live, attempt to emulate him, I currently feel that it is impossible for me to ever reach that state of perfection.
