Today it has been a day of smellings. Don't know if they are real or not, it's hard to discern between real and memory odors. It isnĀ“t as seeing on your mind compared with actually watching anything. One of these was mango juice, which I suppose was a spontaneous memory. Another one I can't seem to recall. Yet I know it has been long, a long time ago since I smell it; certainly I was a child then. Once I read that it is impossible to smell things in a dream, which is wrong (just as the myth about reading). I should write about dreams... but dreams are about what is-not. Yesterday I reread The Wake (tenth of Sandman volume), and found it better than the first time I read it. Some things taste better if you let them be for a time...

Two days ago I went to see X Men 2, and it was good, but here I state that Sandman was a reason I liked X men, because with this I confirm the superiority of Sandman over them. Yes I know that argument is circular, and hasn't sense... just like dreams .uisai

Yesterday, mid-bath, I realized one reason I could have to try to convinve people of the value of Sandman, Lojban and the like. Think that I have a preacher soul, that I would be a natural. I have the passion to try to "open eyes". I tend to "study" and decipher the thing until is part of me, until we blend on each other. I like to discuss and argue. And of course as a child I had these dreams about serving God...

There's a story of the devil's advocate (nothing to do with the movie) which says that once a long time ago, the devil was caught and arrested. The town seeked for and advocate to make a fair judgement, however no man wanted to defend him. Then the people elected a guy to defend him. He, at first, didn't wanted; however he thought that if he made open how evil the devil was, people will hate the fiend and keep good. Even more, he thought that people will see him as a honest lawyer. Yet at the end the devil was punished by his crimes and the guy was burned alive (because he obviously was friend of it).

That's the way I think of a devil advocate.
