"Life is about fantasy. Fantasy is about life. It is a come hither, go yon relationship at best. At worst, it is a recipe for confusion and circular logic, a futile grasping for what is real and what is not; what is possible and what is not ... It is memory and extrapolation all balled into one babbling voice inside our heads, clambering for attention. It is what makes us all a bit schizophrenic."
