“Have you heard of that Indian story, Mog, about these blind men describing an elephant?”

“I know that story, Yaw,” Dulmog replied. “There were these blind men who had never seen an elephant before, of course, because they were blind. They were asked to feel an elephant and to describe the animal. One who was touching its side said that it was a flat and rough thing. Another who was feeling its trunk said it was a cylindrical beast. The one feeling its ears said it was a smooth and soft creature. All of them thought that the others were describing different animals, and they ended up arguing about which one of them was right.”

“The world can argue, Mog, but they will discuss for argument’s sake.”
