    “…so it is in your best interest. For, I fear, some of the things which may spill forth from your lips, should you confront me, may result in a quite unfortunate outcome for you. There are certain qualities about me, certain uncommon qualities, that, from your perspective, will appear to you as if they are faculties of my body that are strictly under my control, and, thereby, you will, unjustifiably so, ascribe the unfortunate and unstoppable consequences of your affronting me to be a product of my will, and the supposed idea that I may be intentionally forcing you to new levels of experienced pain.
