                                     to the instincts with
                                     unconditional obedience."

                                     themselves."

8) Why do people realize that        "People do not realize that their
their opinion is generally           opinion of the world is also a
valid?                               confession of their character."

always positive?                     he can never return to his
                                     original dimension."

good for a nation?                   because the human being has the
