191109 - Ceremony Debrief - The StereoMyth, the Anne Frank Working, and the Sacred Marriage of Jesus and Mary - Part One

 It's 6:24AM. Last night you conducted a private phonomantic ceremony in your garage. How do you feel right now?

My family and friends will attest to it: I am a far kinder, more compassionate, more self-controlled person than I used to be. I have a vastly expanded emotional range. And best of all, I seem to have cured my lifelong depression and found a way to treat my chronic loneliness. Oh yeah, and I've learned how to sing, and my dancing has improved (marginally). Bonus!

I think other people will experience similar results. Hence, my pedagogical and proselytizing mission…
