Choose an event from your past in which you felt victimized by forces over which you had little control. List ways you actually did contribute to this event. My camera and typewriter were once stolen from my apartment. I didn't give the robber a map, but I:
• did rent an accessible 1st floor apartment;
• did leave my items lying around;
• did invest my money in expensive items;
• did not invest in a burglar-alarm system;
• did not investigate when I thought I heard someone.
This list include choices I made and those I failed to make. Some relate to the robbery and some to bigger issues. None of these choices is wrong, but they all have effects that contribute to "random" events.

The pathology of the poet says that the undevout astronomer is mad the pathology of the very plain man says that the genius is mad and between these extremes, which stand for ten thousand analogous excesses, the sovereign reason takes the part of a moderator and does what it can. I do not think that there is a pathology of the occult dedications, but about their extravagances no one can question, and it is not less difficult than thankless to act as a moderator regarding them.
